Handy sort who has won at Nottingham and Musselburgh (both 5f, good) and put up his best performance when narrowly denied in a York nursery over an extended 5f in October; subsequently gelded; good form chance if as effective on AW for last year's winning yard.

Raced only on good/firmer; ready winner over C&D in April; solid performances in Listed grade since, finishing second in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot (form working out well) then comfortably going one better in the Dragon Stakes at Sandown; progressive colt who has leading claims.

Form & Verdict
Irish colt who has got better with each start in maidens, most recently looking useful at Navan (5f, good to firm) where he motored clear in the closing stages for a 6l success; changed ownership since; sire Cotai Glory won this contest in 2014 and trainer bagged this prize in 2020; interesting.

Form & Verdict
Recorded a 7l success at York on second outing, then started favourite for the Norfolk at Royal Ascot (good to firm) where he was always handy and ran respectably in second place; this sharper 5f may prove ideal and he remains open to further improvement; major contender.

Form & Verdict
Major promise in 6f maidens, finishing second at this venue then impressively going one better at Newbury (good) where she won in the style of a potential Listed/Group filly; gives the impression she'll cope well with this drop in distance; one to consider.
