A stellar performer, landing Group Ones in Dubai and Australia. Last seen finishing honourable second behind Winx in the Cox Plate last October and dangerous to rule, especially as he can go well fresh.
Maintained a high level throughout the season and got back on the winning keel with good success in the Group 3 Strensall Stakes at York (1m) last time. Usually gives his running and that puts him bang in the mix.
Established herself as a fine performer at Group 3 level but some uninspiring efforts of late, including ninth in Supreme Stakes (7f) last time out. This looks a tough ask.
Last win came in York Listed race (1m) in June. Fourth in the Sussex Stakes two starts ago before 1L defeat in the Group Two Celebration Mile at Goodwood (1m) on latest start. Them efforts merit place claims.
Rates as one of the top mile prospects after Sandown Listed victory followed by narrow second in St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. Too keen in the Juddmonte International last time but every chance back at this trip.
Made an impressive debut over C&D back in April before maintaining unbeaten record with success in 1m2f Newmarket Stakes on 2000 Guineas Day. Off since and back down in trip but still rates as an exciting prospect.
