Form & Verdict
Led towards the finish in 1m Lingfield maiden at the start of the month; may have followed up in 1m2f handicap there but for being quite badly hampered over 1f out; has looked slightly awkward but first-time cheekpieces may help in that regard and there's little doubt he has the ability to win off this mark.

Form & Verdict
Unbeaten in three starts since his debut, looking potentially very useful when returning from a near six-month break to comfortably see off two subsequent winners in a 7f Wolverhampton handicap in November; bred to stay 1m and highly likely there's more to come.

Well-travelled gelding who has won good races in France, Germany, Italy and Qatar; however, needs a drop back in class judged on Group 1 defeats at Sha Tin and Longchamp the last twice; something to prove at this level.

Made all in German Group 3 (8.5f, good to soft) in April and creditable third in Swedish Group 3 (1m1f, good) next time; however, he's untested at this trip and there's the suspicion he's vulnerable under a 4lb penalty.

First past the post in his last six outings, the last two in blinkers; landed a Listed race at Cagnes-Sur-Mer (1m, Polytrack) in February before battling on most gamely to just get the better of Alzahir in a similar contest to this at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) 17 days ago; a few of these may be open to a bit more progress than him, but still hard to rule out.

Best of the rest behind Riot at the Dante meeting but his headway was more laboured than the winner and a 6lb turnaround in the weights might not be sufficient; still capable of a prominent showing though.

Best form on soft/heavy, notably a success in the Spring Mile at Doncaster (Thunder Roar second) on reappearance; only midfield in the Spring Cup at Newbury next time but better when fourth at Leicester (1m, soft) last weekend, with old rival Thunder Roar a place ahead of him on that occasion.

Fair form but beaten just under 4l when fifth of seven on 6f course handicap debut eight days ago; 2f longer trip may help but his claims still aren't obvious (mark due to be 2lb lower from Saturday).

Has finished last on his latest three starts (all on turf) but prior to that had run one of his best races when beaten a short head at Chelmsford (1m, AW) in March; first-time cheekpieces replace usual blinkers and a return to AW may well see him back to form.
