Effective at this level and ran well enough on return from absence in 1m3f Windsor Listed contest to suggest the fire is still burning. Entitled to come on for that but may be vulnerable to classier rivals.
Lightly raced for his age. Returned from layoff with 9L defeat in Group 3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes in May when sweating up beforehand. Hood applied for this but best watched on return from another absence.
Group 2 winner as a three-year-old last season and was well fancied for the St Leger when last seen on British soil. Hasn't been seen since fifth in Group 1 Jebel Hatta in Dubai and gelded since. This looks a good opportunity on return.
Highly regarded yet inconsistent. Showed some signs of form when second to Elarqam at Goodwood (1m2f) on penultimate start but flopped when last seen in Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot. Hard to fancy now.
Good winner of 1m2f Newmarket handicap in July but looked to be bogged down by heavy conditions in 1m Haydock Group 3 last weekend. Return to forecasted ground and trip should suit him better.
Above-average juvenile, beating St Leger fancy Sir Ron Priestley at Ffos Las before 1L defeat in 1m2f Group 1 in France. That form looks week tho and makes belated reappearance in this.
