Listed winner at Royal Ascot and won a C&D Listed race before a Group 3 win in France. Just about a career best at Del Mar when just caught on the line by Declarationofpeace and should come on for his reappearance on better ground here.
Listed winner at Fairyhouse last year was the highlight of his juvenile career. Showed little at Navan but yard in better form now and an interesting runner dropped back in trip.
Won a valuable race at Del Mar when last seen, beating Sound And Silence and returns 2lb better off at the weights here. Potentially capable of better this year but yard's runners have needed their reappearance runs more often than not this year.
Won a soft ground novice race at Nottingham on second start and respectable run at Haydock in follow up bid. Struggled upped in class throughout the rest of the year and needs to take a big step forward from reappearance run in a Newmarket handicap.
Arrives bidding for a hat-trick after wins at Southwell and Sandown but largely struggled at pattern level last year. Needs to keep improving if he's to land any blow here.
Won over 6f here on second start before finishing third in the valuable sales race here in August. Career best effort when beaten only 3L in a Newmarket Group 1 towards the end of the campaign and should come on for his reappearance last month.
Maiden winner at Ripon having run a huge race at Royal Ascot behind re-opposing Sound And Silence earlier in the year. Placed behind that rival again when third in a Group 3 when last seen and may do better now on first start since wind surgery.
Narrowly beaten by stablemate Sound And Silence at Royal Ascot but failed to justify favouritism on his next two starts. Returned with a good win at Doncaster last time and likely to come on for that effort.
Arrives bidding to defend her unbeaten record but needs to improve on the C&D Listed win on her latest start to be involved here. Entitled to need this on return from a significant absence but holds two Group 1 entries and worth a market check.
Progressive on AW this winter and produced a fair effort at Bath in Listed company on return to turf but this is much tougher and looks up against it.
Two wins from four starts, most recently in a Class 5 Newcastle Novice event earlier in the month. Not disgraced on sole run in Listed company at Newbury last year when sixth of 15 but she needs to improve.
