£380,000 breeze-up buy who won readily on debut at Bath (5f, good) in May before close fifth of 13 in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) 15 days ago; leading claims judged on that latest form.

Form & Verdict

Two wins (5f/6f, good/soft) from first three starts and creditable Listed fourth against fellow fillies at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) last Saturday; however, she's vulnerable today unless finding further improvement.

2 yo Colt

OR: 93

Form & Verdict

Won at Newmarket (5f, good) in May on his second start and that form was franked by the placed horses at Royal Ascot; this fellow was beaten 5l in 13th of 22 in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at the Royal meeting (6f, good to firm) but his far-side group seemed at a disadvantage and he faded late on; could have a big part to play now back down in distance and grade.

Form & Verdict

Won on debut at Lingfield (5f, good) last month and again showed considerable promise when third under a penalty at Redcar (5f, good to firm); however, he needs a sizeable step forward in this much hotter race.

2 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Won on debut Thirsk (5f, good to soft) in May then looked stretched by 6f at Epsom (good to soft); fair tenth of 27 in the Listed Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) but form needs to go to a new level today.

Form & Verdict

Won the Brocklesby at Doncaster (5f, soft) in March; third of six in Listed race over this C&D (soft) in May but well beaten in the Group 2 Coventry at Royal Ascot and his limitations are likely to be exposed once more.
