Form & Verdict

500,000gns yearling; failed to justify a shade of odds-on in the Norfolk at Royal Ascot but he still ran a big race on much faster ground than when hammering the third-placed Arizona Blaze the time before in a Listed race at the Curragh (5f, soft); this extra furlong looks a better fit (he made his debut at 6f and was running on strongly last time) and it would perhaps be unwise to ignore the apparent level of confidence behind him at Ascot.

Form & Verdict

Promising at Goodwood (6f, good) and needed just hands and heels encouragement to make all for a decisive success over C&D two weeks ago (good to firm); this demands a whole lot more but his trainer rarely aims high without good reason; hard to dismiss.

Form & Verdict

260,000euros yearling; won the same Nottingham novice (6f, good) in which his stable's tip-top sprinter Blue Point made a successful debut in 2016; went off at odds-on and won snugly with the front two coming 12l clear; disappointing that the runner-up has been beaten twice in the meantime (ran well) but this Godolphin colt could still be a smart prospect.

Form & Verdict

£79,000 breeze-up buy and out of a Listed-placed 6f 2yo winner; overcame distinct signs of inexperience to lead close home at Windsor (6f, good to firm) and, while the form didn't look anything special at the time and not much better now, there's no knocking a winning start.

Form & Verdict

£220,000 breeze-up buy; comfortably won four-runner maiden at Ayr (6f, good) on debut and ran on strongly to just miss out in the Coventry (6f, good to firm), in which the winner raced on a different part of the track; that race was dominated by outsiders in a modest time, but he's bred to go further than this and today's stiff finish will be right up his alley.

OR: 106

Form & Verdict

Won his debut on good to soft; quite a market mover for the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot (good to firm) and showed speed and stamina in prevailing by 1l from a well-touted US raider, in the process matching the ten-year average winning RPR in that Listed event; gives every impression that he'll devour this extra furlong (both parents stayed) and has every chance.
