Respectable effort in a Group 2 at Newmarket before appreciating the drop in class to Listed level at Ripon last time. Needs to improve again but trainer is going well in recent weeks and no surprise to see him progress.
Won at Windsor on third start and not disgraced in a Group 2 at Newmarket last time but needs to improve if he's to figure here. Yard in fine form with their juveniles this year and won this contest last year with Harry Angel so can't be ruled out.
Has been in excellent form all year and yet to run a bad race. Won a Kempton Group 3 last time, producing a new track record in the process, suggesting he may want fast ground here. Obvious player if the rain stays away with more progress possible.
Running well all season and followed a fine effort at Royal Ascot by winning a Doncaster maiden. Only just touched off at York last time and may have won if he stayed straight. Should appreciate the return to fast ground and more improvement likely.
Well related colt who cost 300,000 gns at the Breeze-Ups and started repaying that price tag at Windsor on debut. Suspicion the ground went against him in a Group 3 at York last time but still ran well and less exposed than most in here.
Not won since his debut but largely running well in defeat. Proved a little disappointing at York last time out and may want softer ground to be seen to best effect but proven at this level at least.
Nice performance when runner-up on debut in a decent Ascot maiden and built on that with a win at Thirsk last time out. More improvement likely but plenty more needed in this company and yard have been a little quiet in recent weeks.
Still a maiden after four starts and couldn't justify short-priced favouritism at Newmarket last time out. Plenty to find at this level and others arrive with stronger claims.
Has won twice already having made his debut in July and not disgraced in a Group 2 at York last time out. Needs more again to figure here and plenty on to turn the form around with Invincible Army.
