- Surface: Turf
Has easily disposed of his rivals on his last two starts, including one here, and the form has been upheld since. Indeed the runner-up at Windsor has scored since and is rated 86, so he looks fairly weighted for his seasonal bow.
Formerly with Mark Johnston and opened his account at Goodwood in September. A line through the runner-up gives him a bit to find with West End Charmer. His size suggests he may do better this year, but equally that he may need the run.
By Camelot and the first foal of a dam who won eight races. Bred for this sort of trip and has shown speed to win two AW contests over shorter. Clocked a good time at Kempton and his opening mark looks just about right.
Beat Just Hubert at Kempton before he was outstayed by a stable companion at Newmarket. Improved with every run so far, but yard have made a slow start to the season.
Has twice finished behind Fearless Warrior and yard are just 2-37 in 2019. Bred to need this trip as a minimum and probably best watched.
Received a good tactical ride to deny a hotpot 16 days ago on AW. Stable do well here with this age group and he's weighted to maintain his current rate of progress on turf debut.
Gelded since his Wolverhampton success when he only needed to match his BHA rating to score. Bred to do even better over this sort of trip and there may be some value in his mark.
