Veteran who won on his first three visits to this course including twice over this C&D before getting very worked up in the stalls, missing the break and pulling up lame last time. Given a break and can go well fresh. Rates a leading contender.
Finished his juvenile campaign with a Group 3 second and was most progressive this year winning four in a row before held at a higher level in France and Canada. Returned from a break with a solid run in Listed company and looks set to go well.
Ran second in the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes last year but hasn't been up to that level in two runs in Listed company this campaign. Respected down in grade but hasn't seen his races out the last twice and others look more solid propositions.
Won three in a row in July and was right up to his best with a very good second over this C&D last time. Likes this track and should be competitive again off the same mark.
Dropped to a really low mark when taking advantage to make it two from three over this C&D. Won well and has to be a leading contender but has gone up 8lb so not certain to confirm placings with Alsvinder.
Both AW wins have come on the fibresand but acted well here when a close third to Queen In Waiting and Alsvinder over this C&D. More required though to reverse the form.
Three-time C&D winner but looks a tough ask in this grade having been behind a number of these rivals in his recent runs.
