Form & Verdict

Won debut as 2yo; placed on next three starts and creditable seventh of 29 in handicap at Royal Ascot (1m, good to firm; never able to challenge) on latest; best form (penultimate start) was on soft and he is bred to be suited by this step up in trip; one to consider seriously.

Form & Verdict

Ran twice on Kempton AW last autumn, on second occasion winning a maiden over 1m; 9-2, much better form when close third of seven in Listed race at Goodwood (1m3f, good) seven weeks ago, despite racing rather freely and having to wait for room; better still is needed but he is unexposed and that was a promising reappearance.

Out of a 7f Group 3 winner; showed his inexperience on recent debut here (7f) but made promising late headway to finish fifth; ought to be more streetwise this time; leading contender.

Form & Verdict

Probably acts on soft; 7f novice win as 2yo; hampered on his way through when losing out in a four-way photo on handicap/seasonal debut at Goodwood (1m, good) in May, then hung right when creditable second of seven at Sandown (1m1f, good to firm) four weeks ago; needs extra but 1m2f may well help.

Form & Verdict

Finished last on heavy ground on debut, otherwise unraced on softer than good; much better since upped to 1m2f, ending his 2yo campaign with a win at Lingfield (AW) and close second of seven in another handicap at Newmarket (good) nearly ten weeks ago; subsequently gelded; withdrawn last Saturday when the ground was soft; 5lb higher than on that promising reappearance.

T: Hughie Morrison

Seems to have his quirks and it took him five attempts to get off the mark, yet he was pretty impressive in the end at Lingfield (1m2f AW handicap) after racing awkwardly and hanging late on; 9lb higher but could have grown up mentally during the winter; trainer excels with such types; respected.

3 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

Below form last July on soft on final 2yo start, his sole run on softer than good; wore blinkers on both outings as 3yo, winning a maiden at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) in April and his handicap debut at Sandown (1m2f, good to firm) four weeks ago; came from off the pace in the latter and strode clear in good style, so he remains one to take seriously despite 9lb rise.

3 yo Colt

OR: 98

Form & Verdict

Comfortably justified favouritism in Leopardstown handicap (1m2f, heavy) in April and front-running third in the London Gold Cup at Newbury (1m2f, good) in May; second favourite, looked set for further improvement trying 1m4f at Royal Ascot (good to firm) but failed to find it, racing wide and persistently hanging right up the straight; that was still a respectable run and he's of interest back at 1m2f on forecast slow ground.

Unplaced all three times since a successful handicap debut at Kempton (1m, AW) in March, but close behind Mr Monaco when front-running fourth of seven at Sandown (1m1f, good to firm) on latest outing; visored in the latter and today; withdrawn last Saturday when the ground was soft (tried heavy as 2yo) which is a worry.

Better since switched to turf (good ground last three starts) and upped to this trip, on last two occasions winning easily at Chester and by a neck with late bid over C&D; raised another 8lb, which demands plenty more again, but may have more to give.

Form & Verdict

Won small-field novice events at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) in February and Newmarket in April; 11-10 for Listed race at Newmarket (again 1m2f on good) ten weeks ago but tailed off, reportedly stumbling at the start; gelded since and his trainer did win this race with another unexposed sort two years ago, but Royal Power is presumably their first string.

Form & Verdict

First three starts were 1m2f, runner-up at Chelmsford (AW) and Goodwood (good) before going one better in a novice back at Chelmsford; there's stamina in the family, so 1m4f for handicap debut here 13 days ago looked interesting but she managed just fourth of five (good to firm) and major overall improvement is needed; stable has superb record in this race.
