6 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Well handicapped on last year's best efforts and it's possible a break will have helped; however, his form went the wrong way towards the end of last season, with slow starts being a problem; something to prove on return.

9st 2lb

J: Hector Crouch

T: Stuart Williams

Finished second of 12 at Goodwood in August (5f, good to soft) and four defeats later he's dropped 10lb; no doubting he has the ability to go well at this level but slow starts can be a problem and others look more reliable.

Form & Verdict

9yo who was below best in Meydan last winter and same story on last month's British return at Salisbury; however, he's spent the vast majority of his career in Group/Listed races and it very much catches the eye that's he 3-3 in handicaps, the latest at York last August when 1lb higher; respected.

Form & Verdict

Won with these cheekpieces back on at Windsor (5f, good to firm) last month and creditable third of 13 at Newcastle (5f, AW) last Friday off this 2lb higher mark; can give another good account and could be in the shake-up.

Form & Verdict

Back to form when going close at Goodwood (5f, good) in May, then went one better at Epsom (5f, good to soft), both under Joe Leavy; remains 2lb lower than when winning this race last year (good; sole course visit) and he's won on fast ground in the past; ticks lots of boxes.

3 yo Filly

OR: 96

Form & Verdict

Three 2yo wins last year, including C&D novice (good to soft) and Deauville Listed (5f, very soft); she's been a fair fifth in Listed races on her two starts this year (heavy/good to firm) but needs something extra now making her first handicap start off a lofty mark.
