Aside from his last two runs, he had been running very consistently in valuable handicaps and Listed races this summer; ran well in this race last year and has chances if bouncing back from recent setbacks.
Slightly disappointing when stepped up in trip and class in May/June this season but returned to form last time out at Kempton over 1m4f; won this race last year and another bold bid expected.
Struggled to make a mark in valuable handicaps in the spring and early summer and no show on recent return run at the Curragh; certainly has a ability but still has only one win to his name.
Out of his depth in two Group 1 appearances this summer but has run some sound races in defeat at this level including last time out at Leopardstown (1m4f). One for the shorlist.
Entitled to take this step up in class following a fine effort in defeat last time out at The Curragh (1m2f); has improved with every race this season and looks to be one of the leading contenders.
Won her maiden here in January and followed up with a conditions race win at Gowran Park in May; has struggled on her latest two starts (Group 2 at Ascot and handicap at The Curragh); something to prove in this company.
Just one maiden win to her name but has been far from disgraced in Listed and Group company since that win; likely to run her race but also likely to find one or two too good for her.
Comfortably won a maiden here last October over a mile and while generally running her race around this level does not jump out as an obvious winner here.
