Back to winning ways at Epsom (7f, good to soft) in May; ground quicker than ideal for him when midfield in Buckingham Palace at Royal Ascot since and treated as if still in form.

Form & Verdict

Game win at Newcastle on AW finals day; creditable third in good-quality 1m Newbury handicaps (good to soft/good) on next two starts; below par when encountering going firmer than good for the first time in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot 17 days and capable of bouncing back here; raced mainly at 1m but he was a good second over 7f on AW last November.

Series of good 6f runs before rattling home to be best of the rest behind English Oak in the Buckingham Palace at Royal Ascot (good to firm) on his first attempt at 7f; bold show likely if in similar form.

Reliable in defeat last season but this a rather belated return to action (had wind surgery) and a watching brief is the percentage call.

Form & Verdict

Four wins in France; ran promisingly in the Thirsk Hunt Cup (1m, good to soft) on British debut but has failed to back that up at York and Royal Ascot since, albeit in strong races; drops back to 7f now (below par on previous attempt in France).

Form & Verdict

Went close in the Group 2 Mill Reef at Newbury (6f, heavy) on his final 2yo start; more useful efforts in defeat at Listed/Group 3 level at up to 7f this year and could find life a bit easier now dropping into a handicap for the first time; the cheekpieces he wore when third at Salisbury last time are retained.

At the top of his game with two 7f wins on softer than good in the spring; his form has dipped the last twice but his solid C&D record provides hope that he could stage a revival.

Two AW wins over this trip since joining George Boughey, latterly at Kempton in April; had form on turf for his previous stable; given who trains him it wouldn't be any surprise were he to pull out more again.

Looked progressive when beating 12 rivals at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) in February, but blotted his copybook back there (1m) later in month; that not the first time he has proved a disappointing favourite, though, and has been given a break since; a player if he can bounce back.

Not been with this yard long and he's on the upgrade, following his second to Dingle over C&D with a snug 7f win here 13 days ago; 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

Arrives on a hat-trick after wins at Nottingham (1m, good) and Chester (7f, good to soft) in May; another 4lb rise demands more but he can't be discounted in his current mood.

Left a disappointing reappearance at Newbury well behind when winning a well-contested 3yo handicap at Thirsk (7f, good to soft) three weeks ago; raised 5lb but he's progressive bar that blip at Newbury and might enhance the good record of 3yos in this race.

8yo who has been below par since a Chester win last May but he has a reduced mark to work with as a result and shaped as if in better form when sixth of 17 at York three weeks ago, travelling well but meeting trouble in the final 2f; this former C&D winner enters calculations.
