Stylish winner of the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes earlier in the season but failed to go on since, finishing down the field in both the Queen Anne Stakes and Eclipse (1m2f). Won't want the ground too soft but claims back both down in class and trip.
Ready winner of the European Free Handicap over C&D in April before sixth in the 2000 Guineas. Struck at Group 2 level at York (7f) in August before below par fourth in Park Stakes (7f) last time. Leading contender if bouncing back.
Two-time Group 1 winner and dual winner of this race, including last year. Notched 7f Group 3 on the July Course in June but well-held in July Cup and Goodwood Group 3 (7f) last time. Thrives at this track but ground could be a concern.
Rarely runs a bad race and won 7f Chester handicap for second year in a row when last seen. Has run well in this company before and could take advantage in a depleted race.
Had been reliable but starting to put some disappointing performances in, including when tenth in 7f Doncaster Group Three in September. Up against it on current form.
