Has won two of his three starts, winning at Thirsk last time out having to give weight to most of the field. That's not the strongest form though and others have achieved more. Steps up in trip.
Impressive when winning a maiden at Navan on fourth start and only narrowly denied in a three-runner Listed race at Navan last time. Step up in trip should suit.
Won his maiden on debut at Wolverhampton as a juvenile and while he hasn't won since, he posted a respectable effort in a Chester Group 3 last time, doing too much too soon. Step up in trip not sure to suit.
Killarney maiden winner on debut but last of three in a Listed race (Barbados second) earlier this month. Plenty of stamina in his pedigree and should relish this step up in trip.
Runner-up in what looks a decent maiden at Leopardstown last month and off the mark at the fourth attempt when winning a Tipperary maiden. Shapes like he will appreciate this step up in trip. Wears first-time blinkers.
Green on debut when runner-up at Wolverhampton but impressive in novice company at Newmarket before a Listed success up in trip at Longchamp last time. Form franked when runner-up from that went close in a Group 2 subsequently. Interesting runner.
Beat stablemate Jalmoud on debut before winning his next two starts, bolting up by 9L in a four-runner event at Leicester in April. Disappointed in a Group 3 in France last time when favourite and not guaranteed to appreciate this new trip.
Won twice as a juvenile and posted some respectable efforts in defeat in Listed company and his third behind the subsequent Derby winner at Lingfield now looks like strong form. Yard in form and shapes like a step up in trip will be fine.
Won twice as a juvenile and bolted up on his return at Newmarket last month. Struggled in the Dante and never going at Epsom when last seen though so has questions to answer now. Steps up markedly in trip.
Listed winner at Newmarket as a juvenile and placed in a Derby trial at Chester on return. Only eighth in the main event earlier this month but a proper stamina test has looked as if it would suit in the past.
A winner on debut at Leopardstown and produced a much improved effort when stepped up in trip, finishing runner-up behind Western Australia at Navan last time out. May struggle to reverse that form but holds place claims.
Won his first two starts and while he failed to show up in Lingfield's Derby trial, it was a much better effort behind a subsequent winner at Doncaster earlier this month. Still has a fair bit to find on form though.
Maiden winner at Gowran as a juvenile and back in the winners' enclosure when stepped up markedly in trip at Navan last time in Listed class. Looks sure to kick on from that effort now.
