Belied his big odds at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) on debut in April, not hard pressed after leading early in the straight; stumbled and unseated Pat Dobbs leaving the stalls in the Derby (again 28-1) three weeks ago before leading the field home riderless; very hard to weigh up but the suspicion is that he's well above average and should not be passed over lightly.

By Derby winner Golden Horn; siblings include Listed winners at 1m2f and 1m3f in Italy, also at 1m4f in stakes race in US; 28-1 for belated debut at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) in April when he wanted to go as fast as possible early but still proved much the best horse in the race; has potential but could hardly be taking a bigger jump in class.

Smart middle-distance pedigree, out of an American Oaks winner who bred an Irish Oaks winner; maiden after three starts, looking ready for a step up in trip when beaten just over 2l by Voyage at Newbury (1m2f, good to soft) in April but not improving for 1m4f when third in a Chester maiden 22 days ago on final start for Roger Varian; right up against it.

Overall record is 2-5 and she led 2f out to justify favouritism comfortably on handicap debut here (1m2f, good; unraced on firmer) in May; every chance and rallied in the blanket finish over 1m1f at Hamilton 22 days later; needs better but there's a lot of stamina on the dam's side, as demonstrated by her half-brother the Gold Cup contender Coltrane.
