Form & Verdict
Hasn't added to last season's debut win but she retains all her ability and has run some sound races in defeat in good sprints this year; will need to squeeze out extra to come out on top but Adam Kirby takes over for the first time in 2022.

Better than ever when coming from off the pace to win a Class 3 handicap at Goodwood in July (5f, good to firm); never in the hunt in a soft-ground Group 3 in France three weeks ago; likely to be vulnerable once more.

Consistent and steadily progressive; getting loose beforehand proved no barrier to success at Hamilton 13 days ago (5f, good to firm), making all to record a comfortable success; one of a number who like to get on with it in this field though and he needs another career best.

Three turf wins (5f) this summer and he ran right up to his best when a close fifth at York in September; second at Newcastle in one AW run this summer (comparable with his best turf RPR at the time) and he should give his running; wouldn't look to have much wiggle-room off his current mark though.

Form & Verdict
Had looked exposed until finding a rich seam of form this summer, winning on Wolverhampton AW last month and adding further successes at Windsor and Doncaster (5f; both good to firm); displayed his quirks when wandering around at Doncaster but the form has been boosted since; 2lb well in and should make a bold bid for the four-timer.

The winner of two of his three starts as a 2yo; very promising reappearance at Musselburgh (behind Sophie's Star) when he looked rusty and events conspired against him; only seventh in a hot 6f handicap at Newmarket three weeks ago when leaving the impression a return to 5f would suit; likely there's a bigger effort in him and a strongly run race at this trip may prove ideal; interesting.

On the up for his new yard this year, running with great credit in a hot sprint at Royal Ascot before readily accounting for Sir Henry Cotton at Haydock 26 days ago (5f, soft); 5lb rise to contend with but he won't mind the faster conditions and still has potential after just eight starts.
