Took his record on soft ground to 3-3 when bolting up in 1m2f Glorious Goodwood handicap in August; that was the performance of one who can make his mark outside of handicaps.

Form & Verdict
Sixth win since joining this yard when just clinging on in the John Smith's Cup at York (about 1m2f, good to soft) in July; recorded another really smart handicap performance when third of 15 to Ancient Rome at Glorious Goodwood (1m2f, good to soft) since; has struggled to make an impact in three previous attempts at Listed level but it should be a different story this afternoon.

Form & Verdict
Group 1 winner on testing ground in Ireland in spring 2021; seemingly not capable of close to that form nowadays but his latest third in Group 3 at the Curragh (1m2f, good) shows he's still useful.

Very capable but he's drawn a blank since his soft-ground debut success at Goodwood in July 2021 and recent efforts suggest he's highly unlikely to be snapping that losing run here.

0-12 for Andrew Balding since debut success at Goodwood (7f, soft) in July 2021 but he was highly tried on occasions (ran in Irish 2,000 Guineas and French Derby); interesting to see whether a change of stable sparks a revival as his mark is certainly lenient judged on his best form.

Useful at two (won novice and fourth in 1m2f Group 3); gelded prior to finishing well held in the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot (1m6f, good) on his reappearance in June, after which he left Ralph Beckett; takes a significant drop back in trip now starting out for Kevin Ryan after another three months off.
