Almania
J: Jim Crowley
T: Sir Michael Stoute
Hot Recent Form Trainer - 5 wins from 20 in the last 14 days (25%)
Beaten favourite in a maiden at Ascot on his debut last July, but he stepped forward on that effort to score at Sandown afterwards. Open to improvement this season, but the bare form of those last two runs leaves him with plenty to find.
Two runs last summer; lacks the Group-race form of some of these but he's a good prospect

J: Ryan Moore
T: A P O'Brien
A progressive juvenile who ended his campaign with a Group 2 win at Naas. Half-brother to Secret Gesture, who won the Middleton Stakes on this card in 2015. Shapes as though he will stay well but is possibly vulnerable to a speedier rival over this trip.
Led on line in Group 2 at Naas (1m, good) as 2yo; this fine prospect should stay well

Hot Recent Form Trainer - 5 wins from 12 in the last 14 days (42%)
Smart two-year-old who recorded progressive RPR’s in his five starts last season; culminating with his win in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Churchill Downs. Pedigree suggests that he should have more to offer over this trip; leading contender.
Final 2yo win came in 1m Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf in USA; will stay at least 1m2f

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Took his form to a new level when landing a 1m2f handicap at Newmarket on his reappearance earlier this month. That was a smart performance, but this is a considerably stronger assignment, and others look far more likely winners today.
A Group-race performer on reappearance handicap win but this should be exalted company

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
A progressive colt who has won two of his last three starts; latest success coming by a fourteen-length margin at Newcastle. Falls firmly in the ‘could be anything’ category at this stage of his career, but he will need to improve to land this.
Impressed last two starts; half-brother to Prix Vermeille winner Kitesurf; major potential

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Second behind Derby hopeful Bangkok on his debut in March, and he built on that performance to run out a comfortable winner of a Windsor novice race last time out. More is demanded now running in Group company, however.
2nd to Sandown Classic Trial winner on debut; ran away with 1m2f Windsor novice next time

Too Darn Hot
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
Leading two-year-old last season; winning all four starts including the Group 1 Dewhurst at Newmarket. Missed the 2000 Guineas due to injury though, and he steps up markedly in trip on his return to action today, which asks a question of him.
The champion 2yo and it looks as if he will stay 1m2f; missed 2,000 Guineas after setback

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 30 in the last 14 days (0%)
Winner of successive novice races last season, but his limitations have been exposed since. Not disgraced in a Listed event at Epsom last time, but the bare form of that leaves him with an awful lot to find today.
3rd in 1m2f Listed race at Epsom was his best form but gives him bleak prospects in this
