Won on debut at Ascot and not disgraced in both the Coventry or the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood. Needs to bounce back from a poor run in France on his latest start but rates as the type to bounce back and trainer/jockey won this last year.
Ran with promise on debut and justified favouritism in a 13-runner maiden at Cork next time out. Fair to say he's been a shade disappointing in three subsequent starts though and looks reliant on first-time blinkers sparking a return to form.
Won on debut and while he found himself out of his depth in the Coventry, he bolted up when dropped in class at Catterick next time. Well beaten in two subsequent starts though and looks up against it on these terms.
Won a Dundalk maiden on debut and ran with credit when 20/1 behind a smart sort in Listed class next time. Possibly did too much too soon here next time out and remains capable of better.
Won on debut and has appeared to be a little unlucky on some of his subsequent starts not to get his head back in front, particularly at Deauville two starts back in Listed class. Not the most consistent and possibly better over 5f.
Arrives here with an unbeaten record to defend after back-to-back wins at Salisbury. Yard are flying at present and it would be no surprise to see him find the requisite improvement needed to play a part here.
Got his head in front at the fourth time of asking when prevailing at Newbury two starts back but disappointed when a short-priced favourite at Ffos Las since and he has plenty more on his plate here.
Well beaten in each of his three starts and doesn't give the impression a drop in trip is what's needed. Wears first-time blinkers.
Had been a beaten favourite on three of his first five starts but belatedly got his head in front at Pontefract last month. Failed to back that up in a deeper race at York though and has plenty to find at this level.
Unplaced on each of his five runs but there's been some promising signs on his last two starts. However, he would need a sizable step forward to play any part here.
Improved from debut to only go down narrowly at Thirsk and improved again to win at Wolverhampton last month. Should carry on progressing for a yard that do well with their juveniles but plenty more needed in this company.
All three of his wins have come on AW and his turf form has been poor. Well beaten at Chelmsford when last seen and more exposed than most. Wears first-time cheekpieces.
Winner on debut at Naas and not disgraced despite failing to justify favouritism at Roscommon last month. Drop back in trip may be in his favour but he has a bit to find on form here.
Winner on debut and got his head back in front on his third start when winning at Beverley. Failed to land any sort of blow at pattern level and more exposed than some but can't be ruled out if he bounces back.
Still a maiden after four starts and well beaten when favourite in a claiming race last time at Leopardstown. Hard to fancy on all known form.
Well beaten here in a maiden on only start to date and hard to make a case for on that evidence.
Ruler Of The World gelding, cost €9,000 as a yearling. Dam a 5f juvenile winner and half-sister to a 7f Listed juvenile winner. Tough ask on debut and it's not a good sign he's already been gelded.
Roderic O'Connor colt, cost €1,000 as a foal and €14,000 as a yearling. Dam a half sister to a couple of winners over further. Hard to make a case for on debut.
