Was race fit from the All-Weather when springing a surprise over five here in May, denying a short priced favourite. Hasn't got involved in two handicap starts since off a stiff mark; likely to find this level and seven furlongs similarly beyond him.
Improver this year and likes it here; however, trip far enough and up in class

Below-par effort at Windsor latest but 2-2 here including this race last year

Has struggled in his last three runs over seven furlongs, tailed off in a Group Three last time. This is easier, however he doesn't win as often as he should and he was comfortably held by Oh This Is Us at Lingfield in April. Vulnerable once more.
Pays his way and had tough task at Newmarket latest; place chance

Two time French winner who made a winning stable debut at Thirsk. Soft ground counted against him after when fifth to a Haydock specialist and he stayed on encouragingly in the Wokingham last time, second of six in his group. Every chance.
Second best of his group in the Wokingham; easy 7f suits and solid claims

Best form comes with a little cut in the ground, posting a career best when scoring comfortably at Goodwood from a mark of 89 last time. Was beaten a long way in Listed company prior to that; should prove vulnerable at this level on a good surface.
Goodwood winner latest; running style not ideal but chance if ground eases

Well suited by small fields, bouncing back to form at Pontefract last time when denied by a neck from a mark of 87. Was just outpaced late on there, the return to seven looking well suited. Has come up short in nine starts in Listed company however.
Lots to find on these terms but good record in small fields; won't be disgraced

Well drawn for his front running style, he has performer with credit in competitive contests this year, fourth in the German Guineas before chasing home Space Blues. Faded from the front at Ascot last time; should find this track more to his liking.
Useful front-runner who landed Group 3 at this time last year; major player
