250,000 gns yearling, won well on Haydock debut in a race that has worked out well and took a big step forward to win a Newmarket Group 2 earlier in the month. Likely to need more against these rivals but yard capable of improving their juveniles.
€900,000 yearling who won very well on Curragh debut. While runner-up in the Chesham last time at Royal Ascot, he was no match for Pinatubo that day, finishing 3¼L behind that re-opposing rival and hard to envisage him reversing that form.
Arrives here with two wins from four starts, most recently at Wolverhampton in novice company. Others have achieved plenty more at this stage of their careers though and he makes limited appeal up in trip.
Unbeaten in three starts. Very green prior to get the hang of things on debut and then bolted up at Epsom. Better again when winning the Chesham in good style last time out (Lope Y Fernandez runner-up) and sets the standard here.
Second to Pinatubo on debut before winning a Leicester maiden and travelled best in the Windsor Castle but couldn't quicken to beat winner. Stayed on for second again in a Newmarket Group 2 last time (Visinari third) and may improve again now at 7f.
Bolted up when well backed for his Salisbury maiden on only start to date. Yard know what it takes to win this race having landed 2009's renewal and this colt isn't one to rule out, despite needing a big step up on his debut effort.
Very impressive when winning a novice event on debut at Newmarket in a good time. However, only third when odds-on favourite for the Group 2 July Stakes at Newmarket (Platinum Star second); will need improvement for the step up to 7f.
