Group races the last twice, finishing fourth of six in the Craven at Newmarket (1m, good) then fifth of eight in the Dante at York (1m2f, good); there's less depth in today's contest but others still make greater appeal.

The highlight of his 2yo campaign was a close fourth in a Group 2 at Leopardstown (1m, good) in September; no threat on Listed reappearance at Leopardstown in April and he's won just one of his nine starts, but he's the sole runner for Aidan O'Brien who has won two of the last four runnings and it's possible the new trip and first-time cheekpieces will unlock some improvement.

Won the Group 3 Solario Stakes at Sandown (7f, good) last August and reappeared with clear Listed second there (1m, good to firm) behind My Prospero, who went close in the Group 1 St James's Palace Stakes on Tuesday; holds standout claims on form and his pedigree firmly indicates this longer trip will suit; ran well in the Chesham at last year's Royal meeting.

Headstrong sort who was runner-up in the Listed Dee Stakes at Chester last month (1m2f, good to soft); has shown promise on good ground, unraced on faster; the Dee Stakes form hasn't worked out and he has something to find with Reach For The Moon, but his form is up there with the best of the rest; changed hands for £490,000 at Goffs London on Monday night.

Won on debut at Windsor (1m2f, good to soft) in April and again showed promise when close fourth of six in Listed race at Goodwood (1m3f, soft); further improvement is needed but the slow pace didn't help last time, when failing to settle, and this unexposed gelding could have more left in the tank.

Won sole 2yo start (7f, soft) before a creditable (albeit soundly beaten) second to subsequent Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Native Trail in the Group 3 Craven Stakes (1m, good); finished last in the French 2,000 Guineas since but used up lots of early energy from the widest draw; bred to be suited by the step up in trip and this unexposed colt could bounce back with a good run.

Verdict

Frankie Dettori can ride a Royal Ascot winner for the Queen in her Platinum Jubilee year thanks to REACH FOR THE MOON.
