Only defeat in three starts came when second to outstanding Calyx at Royal Ascot, where he had Sergei Prokofiev a neck behind in third. Won Group 2 July Stakes at Newmaket last time, and sure to go close again.

Won on debut here in May, and not unfancied for Coventry Stakes next time, but well held behind Advertise and Sergei Prokofiev there, and hard to imagine how he will turn the tables on that pair now.

Won 5f events at Navan and Naas before finishing third to Calyx in Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, shaping better than the result after weaving his way through. Little to find on form, and yard has an exceptional record in this contest.

Made up for defeat on first two starts when winning impressively at Newbury in May, but had his limitations exposed in Coventry Stakes, and limited appeal despite fitting of a tongue tie here.

Behind Gossamer Wings in Queen Mary Stakes, but has improved with each start, and beat a subsequent stakes winner when landing Grangecon Stud Stakes over C&D last time. Could sneak a place if continuing progress.

Betting

Forecast

Advertise (11/10), Sergei Prokofiev (7/4), So Perfect (7/1), The Irish Rover (12/1), Indigo Balance (14/1), Gossamer Wings (50/1)

Verdict

Four of these clashed in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the other pair running in the Queen Mary at the same meeting, although only Advertise and SERGEI PROKOFIEV are of serious interest here, with the latter taken to make up the neck deficit from Ascot given he didn't get the best of runs that day. So Perfect could pick up the pieces if either of the front pair fail to fire.
  1. Sergei Prokofiev
  2. Advertise
  3. So Perfect
