Beaten just a length in the Coventry (ahead of Sergei Prokofiev) on his second start, winning a Group 2 at Newmarket subsequently. That was impressive and he remains unexposed, but a turnaround is expected given how Aidan O'Brien's string tend to improve.
Coventry second underlined Group 1 potential with emphatic July Stakes win at Newmarket

Looked potentially very promising when beating a subsequent winner over course and distance on debut, bombing out in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot. He's surely capable of better, but that run raises plenty of question marks.
Flopped in the Coventry having looked useful when winning first time out at this venue

Hugely promising, building on a Listed win when a shade unlucky to finish third at Royal Ascot behind Advertise. He had plenty to do and flew home, so a turnaround in a smaller field looks on the card, given there is more to come.
Just behind Advertise at Royal Ascot, fair chance he will reverse the form on home soil

Made it third time lucky with a conditions win at Newbury, disappointing when safely held at Royal Ascot last time. That run seemed to suggest her limitations lie at this grade and she looks vulnerable once again.
Dropped away inside the last furlong when finishing in mid-field in the Coventry, held

Quietly progressive in four starts, fourth in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. Her latest victory at Group 3 level was a career best, but she'll need to improve exponentially to be living with two rivals who hold significantly better form.
Fourth in the Queen Mary, winning favourite in 6f Group 3 here six weeks ago
