Won well at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) in March on second start, looking a stayer in the making; while his third in a Thirsk novice (1m4f, soft) last month was slightly better form and these are early days, on current evidence he is not in the same league as many of today's rivals.

Refused to enter stalls once as 2yo; progressive form otherwise and seems to stay 1m6f but this season's handicap form makes him look an outsider at this level; blinkers (last time) are replaced by cheekpieces.

Seventh race when he won a maiden at Bath (11.6f, good to firm); again comfortably made all in a very small field when following up in handicap at Chelmsford (1m6f, AW) later in April but he needs to have had an awful lot in hand if he's to prove equal to this much harder task.

Very solid 2020 culminated in his second in 1m2f Group 3 at Newmarket (soft), showing lots of stamina for a 2yo; not so good this term but at least Lingfield Derby Trial last time was better than Sandown Classic Trial.

Brother to Kew Gardens who won this race and the St Leger in 2018; runner-up in August on sole 2yo start and went one better in Curragh maiden (1m2f, good) on reappearance; pipped by a stablemate when odds-on in Listed race at Navan (1m5f, good) four weeks later but that's among the best form in this line-up and he looks a smart stayer in the making.

Brother to fairly useful 1m6f-2m winner Dalileo; won heavy-ground maiden on sole 2yo start; tongue tied this season, running as if something amiss in 1m1f Newmarket Listed race (good) in April but his second in Group 3 at the Curragh (1m2f, soft to heavy) nearly six weeks later suggested another step up in trip is in order and puts him firmly in the picture for this.

Progressive last term; good deal better still when reappearing to win a seven-runner conditions event at Naas (1m2f) last month, coming from last to first in a style suggesting reserves of stamina and he's since joined top jumps owner JP McManus; not the best form but should improve.

Won at Galway (1m, heavy) and Cork (1m2f, good; useful form) in his only two Irish starts; disappointing, contrastingly, when travelling over for 1m2f Group 3 at Newmarket in October and the Lingfield Derby Trial (11.6f, soft; in cheekpieces) on latest outing; brother to 2021 Chester Cup winner Falcon Eight and stamina is probably not the chief concern with him.

Races freely but he's justified favouritism in 1m6f handicaps on soft at Wetherby and Sandown on both starts this season, in space of nine days; strode well clear of rivals including Pied Piper last time, undeniably impressive, but did so off a mark of just 75 so this company is very different; sold out of Ralph Beckett's for £310,000 on Monday.

4-4 in handicaps as 3yo, last time having to switch before he led final strides in bunched finish at Doncaster (good to firm) on step up from 1m4f to 14.5f; has proved his stamina, looks capable of better and his handicap form is up there with the best brought by rivals from other routes.

Stormed home to win at Naas (1m, heavy) in November on sole 2yo start; reappearance (on good) was his closest finish in three 1m2f Group 3s this season and he has just under 5l to find with Arturo Toscanini from latest start but made late gains that day too and this extra 4f (with blinkers also enlisted) may well give him the first opportunity to show what he is capable of.

Late foal who made debut in December; big improvement over 1m4f at Leopardstown (good) this term, latterly when staying on well for close third in Listed race; can improve again, which makes him a leading contender.

Forged clear at Kempton (1m4f, AW) in January and well on top in a novice at Leicester (1m4f, good to firm) in April; the latter looked good and he was coughing when tailed-off second favourite in the Chester Vase (soft) six weeks ago; cheekpieces now; could yet prove himself of this quality.

One of the dam's previous winners was smart at 1m4f; 16-1, glaring promise in novice at Lingfield (1m4f, AW) in April, tenderly handled but closing to within a head of his long odds-on winning stablemate; duly won three-runner maiden here (1m4f, good to soft) 16 days later, perhaps not with the ease expected of him at 4-9 but this trip can help (also now tongue tied) and he can still be a very interesting staying prospect.

Dam smart 1m2f and 1m4f winner, half-sister to St Leger winner Milan; hooded when second at Newmarket (1m2f, good) on debut; 5-4, dominated in another maiden at Yarmouth (11.4f, good) 15 days later and could relish another step up in trip today, so not dismissed despite the jump in class.

RACING POST TIP

silk
Taipan
Mark Johnston and Aidan O'Brien have both won this race on seven occasions but with Johnston not having added to his tally since 2014, during which time O'Brien has won it four times. Dancing King is a serious player for the former, with Wordsworth looking tailormade for the race and probably just ahead of Arturo Toscanini among the Ballydoyle runners. However, watch out also for Jessica Harrington's TAIPAN, who could be a revelation now that he moves up from 1m2f, and he gets the vote in front of Wordsworth. Ruling, Kemari and Stowell also demand a mention.
