Ran with credit when seventh of 23 in the Coventry at Royal Ascot. Made hard work of what should have been a simple assignment at Pontefract last time but still got the job done. Step up in trip will probably suit and not ruled out.
Off the mark at the third time of asking at Tipperary last time out. Beautifully bred (full-brother to Highland Reel and Idaho) and it would be no surprise to see him take another step forward here.
Won his first two starts in good fashion and far from disgraced when third of seven in a Curragh Group 2 last time out. There's probably more to come back up in trip here and yard have enjoyed a fine season so far, particularly with juveniles.
Improved from his debut to make easy work of a novice event at Newcastle. Should improve for the step back up in trip here and likely there's more to come.
Still keen when winning at Salisbury in June, improving from a promising Newbury debut. Needs to improve on that form but it would be no surprise to see him improve.
Showed promise on his Newbury maiden and improved on that when winning over C&D last time out. Likely he needs more here but there's plenty to like about his attitude last time and not ruled out with course form already in the book.
Won what looked like a strong novice event here on debut last month. Runner-up didn't do the form any harm with an excellent second here on Thursday and there's every chance he will take a step forward here. Leading claims.
