Off the mark at the second attempt at Beverley in early May and wasn't disgraced when 9l 14th in Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot. That form sets the standard and will improve with racing over time. Leading contender.
Speedy juvenile who won readily at Windsor two starts ago before flopping in 6f Newmarket listed contest last time. Will appreciate the return to 5f in easier contest and well in on nursery debut.
Kept busy with four runs in June, winning 5f Newcastle novice on debut and made all to win Catterick nursery handicap (6f, good to firm) on latest start. Likely to set the pace but has a penalty to contend with and unsure the drop to 5f will suit.
Winner at Ripon in April but has lacked improvement in two starts since, most recently when 11l seventh at Leicester (5f, good to firm). Plenty more needed but can't be discounted for powerful yard on nursery debut.
Narrowly prevailed in Musselburgh novice contest on penultimate start before weakening to finish eighth over C&D in May. Not seen since and has been gelded since but this looks a tough ask. Likely to force the pace.
Hasn't progressed as was hoped since Beverley success in April and seemingly didn't handle soft ground when weakening third in 5f Catterick novice last time out. Return to likely ground a positive but improvement needed.
