Form & Verdict
It was a strong novice that he won decisively over 1m3f here in July (runner-up now BHA-rated 108 and the third 91) and he confirmed the merit of that effort when close up in a Listed race at Windsor (11.5f, good to firm) the following month; not quite so good at Newmarket in September but returning to AW no bother and he's not fully exposed.

Half-brother to Gold Cup winner Courage Mon Ami; skipped clear in a 1m3f novice in July on second AW start; second favourite for Listed race at Windsor (11.4f, good to firm) five weeks ago, racing freely in rear before challenging well over 1f out, finishing a close third of six to Candleford; still had something to learn and could take another step forward.

J: Kieran O’Neill

T: John & Thady Gosden

Half-brother to Gold Cup winner Courage Mon Ami (three other siblings also posted triple-digit RPRs) and likely to stay well himself given that he holds a St Leger entry; not that he looked short of speed when skipping clear in a 1m3f AW novice last time, the form of which has worked out very well; intriguing contender.

Form & Verdict
Successful in a 1m maiden and novice here on his first two starts; made a nonsense of his opening handicap mark at Newmarket in August (1m2f, good to firm) and today's longer trip should be within range; can maintain his unbeaten record back on Polytrack.

Form & Verdict
Three course wins in 2022, notably a Listed event last November; back at that level when fourth of seven in a C&D Group 3 in September; whether he'll be able to see off some promising 3yos in a potentially tactical affair is questionable, though.

Nothing to prove with regard to the suitability of the track having won three times over 1m3f/1m4f here last year; well held in both starts after returning in April (including back here) and has been off for another 132 days since; this a tough race in which to try and bounce back.

Ready winner of a 1m4f handicap at Newcastle in October and the RPR of 111 he recorded there brings him right into the reckoning; he has come up short in Listed events the last twice, however, and he has work to do with Base Note on their latest Kempton run.

Proved suited by the return to AW in Newcastle handicap (12.5f) in October, taking record in this sphere to 2-2; last of four in C&D Listed event since but the steady pace wasn't ideal; remains open to further progress and has possibilities granted a stronger gallop.
