Won a Curragh maiden on debut and while he looked a little out of his depth in two subsequent Group starts, he returned to form with a fine effort in Listed class over this trip back at the Curragh. Needs more here.
Won two of his first three starts and ran a huge in a Group 2 at York last time over 6f. Interesting runner if he copes with the drop back in trip here with a bit of cut in the ground.
Followed up debut win with a good fourth in the Norfolk Stakes and stepped up on that when an impressive winner of the Molecomb Stakes. Form of that looks rock solid with multiple pattern winners in behind and should get similar conditions here.
Followed up a Haydock win with a Royal Ascot success (Listed) and posted a respectable third behind Rumble Inthejungle when stepped up in class at Goodwood. Improved again to win a Group 3 in France last time and more progress possible.
Wide margin winner on debut before justifying favouritism in a Listed event at Sandown next time. Hasn't really gone on from that in three runs since and has work on to turn the form around with several of these. Improvement necessary.
Gained his second Listed success at York last time when he had some of these in behind, producing a career best in the process. Worth giving another chance to up in class given he probably did too much too soon behind Rumble Inthejungle at Goodwood.
Won a maiden at Navan before an excellent second in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. Ran okay on two subsequent starts, most recently when runner-up at the Curragh in Listed company and with the yard in better form now, she may be capable of more.
Winner at Carlisle on debut and only beaten 2L in the Queen Mary before a Group 3 win in France. Form has dipped since but yard do well with their juveniles and it would be no surprise to see her bounce back, particularly with Dettori on board.
Finished third to Little Kim in a Group 3 at Deauville and got her head back in front in impressive fashion when winning a Listed event at Newbury by 3L. Worth another crack at this grade but improvement required.
