Absent since looking better than the bare result in the 2023 St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot (met major traffic issues; 3-3 previously); still a promising sort and looks interesting on return to action.

Good fifth in the Hunt Cup (handicap debut) last month, enhancing his solid record at Royal Ascot and doing well considering he had to wait for a run; clear possibilities off same mark granted better luck.

Suited by good/firmer; record of 2-6 for current yard; creditable third in the Royal Hunt Cup last month on seasonal debut; successful in this contest last year and has to be feared despite being 8lb higher this time.

In career-best form on soft ground the last twice, finishing second to Dual Identity here then cosily going one better at Yarmouth; however, chance may depend on whether he gets a similar surface.

Unraced beyond 1m1f and below par at Meydan in February when last seen; however, he went close there in January (1m1f, good) and a reproduction of that form will make him a contender today.

Close third behind Two Tempting and Classic in C&D contest three weeks ago, taking his Sandown record to 512113; remains in good form and holds solid claims, albeit perhaps has nothing in hand off present mark.

Productive 5yo who held on by a neck in similar event over C&D (good to soft) last month, taking strike-rate this season to 4-5; never wins by far and a further 2lb rise keeps him competitively weighted.

Looked unlucky in similar event over C&D (off 1lb lower) three weeks ago, weaving his way through from the back of the field to split Two Tempting and Dual Identity; scored on this card last year and warrants respect.

Better than ever this term, gamely making all in the Hambleton at York (good) then respectable fourth in Haydock Group 3; returns to handicap level off a career-high mark but can't be dismissed in current form.
