Form & Verdict
Won on good ground here (1m2f) and at Newbury (1m4f) last year and that first success was on his seasonal return last May; creditable fourth over 2m on Polytrack when last seen in October and he still looks feasibly treated; yard is in good form and he's respected back in trip on reappearance.

J: Ryan Moore

T: Sir Michael Stoute

Found a chunk of improvement to easily make all on return at Newmarket (1m4f, good; 9lb higher today) in May; 1m6f on fast ground looked fine on 2023 evidence but he could not muster a blow at Royal Ascot last month; unraced on good to soft and below form in his one 2023 appearance on soft.

J: Ryan Moore

T: Sir Michael Stoute

Looked exposed towards end of 3yo campaign but trainer excels with late-maturing types and he found a chunk of improvement to make all easily on last month's return at Newmarket (1m4f, good); also fine at 1m6f and on fast ground; a 9lb rise might not stop him if he confirms that latest promise.

Has some ups and downs in his nine-race profile but he won at Doncaster (1m2f, soft) last August and resumed his progress with a 4l win there (1m4f, good to soft) two weeks ago; up 8lb but he had a lot in hand last time and is still unexposed at this trip; major player again, particularly if the forecast rain arrives.

J: David Nolan

T: David O’Meara

Hasn't always been the easiest to predict but useful on his day and he emerged from off the pace to win by a length at Haydock (1m4f, good) two weeks ago; didn't appear to do a great deal in front; has now won two of his last three and this progressive 4yo holds strong claims up 5lb for last time.

Form & Verdict
Very lightly raced 4yo; won at Wolverhampton (1m4f) and Kempton (1m3f) during the winter but he faded back on turf in his hat-trick bid at Windsor (11.4f, good) last month; may have needed that after a break but he needs to kick on again to make a big impact here.

Lightly raced 4yo who won two in a row last winter (1m4f/1m3f, AW) and returned to form when going close in first-time blinkers (retained) at Windsor (1m, good to firm) recently; able to run off 2lb lower today (due to be 6lb higher in future) and can be bang there if confirming that latest promise.

J: Billy Loughnane

AW wins in the winter came over middle distances and he's been expensive to follow since handicapping; has still to prove he's as good on turf and it could well be all or nothing coming right back in distance in first-time headgear.

Won three times on AW since November, including with a strong finish at Chelmsford (1m5f) last month; his last turf win was in July 2021 but he was as good as ever last time and is 7lb lower on this return to grass; dangerous if he can continue the good work.
