By Frankel out of an Oaks winner and could prove very good himself as he's improved rapidly so far, doing plenty wrong but still well on top at Newmarket 3 weeks ago. Couldn't dismiss under Dettori.

Took another big step forward when winning the Chester Vase in good style in the mud last month, keeping on well. Remains capable of even better but plenty of his rivals make more appeal on balance.

Goes really well in the mud and notched up a second Group 1 when making all in the Irish 2000 Guineas a fortnight ago. Should stay this far and prospects even brighter if it rains.

Did well at 2 yrs, chasing home Mac Swiney in the Futurity at Doncaster final start, and he returned with a good run in the 2000 Guineas. Should strip fitter here and not without a chance if he stays.
