Made it four wins from four starts when getting up to beat Raffle Prize (runs in 2.25) in a Deauville Group 1 last time. Yard's runners warrant respect here but this looks a tougher race and he will need to improve to maintain his unbeaten status.
Group 2 winner at Goodwood and far from disgraced behind Earthlight at Deauville last time but no obvious reason why he will be reversing that form here given how far the front pair pulled clear.
Won a maiden on debut at Dundalk and placed in a couple of Listed races. Returned to something like his best form when fifth of 20 in a valuable sales race at Doncaster last time but that form leaves him needing plenty here.
Curragh winner on debut and ran well enough behind the high-class Pinatubo on his next two starts. Justified a drop in class when winning a Group 3 at the Curragh last month and should continue to improve.
A winner at Naas on debut but no match for re-opposing Siskin on his next two starts. Beautifully bred and may do better if he can settle better in his races.
A mightily impressive performance, both visually and on the clock at York last time out, winning by 11L. Every chance he can justify a big step up in class here if he takes another step forward; exciting prospect.
Won a valuable conditions race at Beverley but hasn't managed to hit the frame in two subsequent starts up in class. While he's run okay in defeat in those races, this is plenty tougher.
Won his debut before a pair of placed efforts in Group 2 company and has stepped up on those runs with wins in the Gimcrack and the Champagne Stakes. Still gave the impression he wasn't the finished article last time out and respected here.
