Made debut in Listed race at Leopardstown (7f, good) in April and did very well to finish fourth at 150-1 behind subsequent 2,000 Guineas winner Poetic Flare; hasn't gone on from that in his two runs since, however, and has something to prove today.

First three starts at Gowran Park (7f/1m, soft/slower), winning a maiden on the second occasion; at one point he looked to have the Dante field in trouble when clear in that York Group 2 (1m2f, good) last month, finishing fourth; remains to be seen whether he's flattered by that form but he's unexposed at the trip and has to be respected for Aidan O'Brien and Ryan Moore, who have won two of the last three runnings.

Travelled well when third in Group 3 at the Curragh (1m2f, soft to heavy) last month on sole run beyond 1m and may have potential at this trip when back on better ground; the drop back to 7f may not have suited last time and Frankie Dettori rides, but a career best is needed on this 13th run.

Concluded 2yo campaign with a Listed win at Pontefract (1m, soft); Oaks runner-up Mystery Angel was in second but she's improved markedly this year, whereas this fellow has finished in mid-division in Listed and Group 2 races (both 1m2f on good); others have stronger credentials.

Carries a 4lb penalty and needs to produce more than when sixth on his two starts this year in the 2,000 Guineas (1m, good to firm) and the Derby (1m4f, good to soft); however, the drop back in grade is a positive, and possibly today's in-between trip is too, and this 2yo Group 3 winner could have a part to play; claims will be boosted if there's plenty of rain.

Won Listowel maiden (7f, good) on second 2yo start and has been soundly beaten in Listed (7f, good) and Group 3 (1m2f, soft to heavy) races on his two runs this year; considerable improvement is needed today and Ryan Moore rides stablemate Roman Empire, but he could have more to offer at this trip when back on better ground and might not be a forlorn hope.

Runner-up last autumn on first two starts (1m, AW) and returned with easy win in Newmarket maiden (1m2f, good); takes a big step up in grade today but he's in top hands and it remains to be seen where his limitations lie.

No match for Mohaafeth when second of four in Newmarket Listed race (1m2f, good to firm) on May 1; however, that may not be his true form and prior to that he kept on for a better Listed second there (1m1f, good); this stiff 1m2f should suit and he's not written off; unraced on slow ground.

Kicked off the campaign with novice and handicap wins and landed the hat-trick in Newmarket Listed race (1m2f, good to firm) last time; that four-runner contest appeared to fall apart somewhat but he was still very impressive in cruising to victory by 5l from Secret Protector and he holds leading claims today; non-runner in the Derby due to unsuitable ground (good to soft).

No impact when mid-division on his two runs this season in the Group 3 Craven (1m, good to firm) and Irish 2,000 Guineas (1m, soft to heavy); however, he stayed on well two starts ago, hinting this step up in trip could suit, and has each-way possibilities now back down in grade.

RACING POST TIP

Mohaafeth
Having cruised to victory in a four-runner Listed race at Newmarket last month, MOHAAFETH can make it four out of four for the season before going on to bigger things. Secret Protector was well beaten in second that day but didn't appear to be at his best, having previously posted a far more promising Listed second at the same venue. He is second choice, with stablemate One Ruler, Ballydoyle's Roman Empire and the Roger Varian-trained Movin Time others who could go well.
