in first-time blinkers (sweating) after 4 months off, ran up to his best, almost as impressive as he had been in this race in 2017, a third win from 4 starts in 2018, though so high were the expectations for his season (the longed-for clash with Enable in the Arc) that that tally absurdly looks less than might have been expected, his temperament quite close to getting the better of him, whether headgear would have worked a second time a matter purely for speculation; never far away, went in snatches, effort straight, led over 2f out, stayed on strongly, well on top finish; he was clearly a top-class racehorse and will hopefully pass on that ability to his offspring as he heads off to stud.

isn't performing to the exceptionally high standard he set last autumn, not even close to it in fact, admittedly back on firmish ground here, for the first time since third in the Derby, but that's not what should be focused on, mindful of how laboured he was at Epsom too, seeming more that he's lost his focus, becoming lazy; this slightly indolent streak was evident even down at the start as Dettori actively tried to liven him up by showing the whip before loading the stalls, and as soon as they jumped he was bustling him up, chasing the leaders but never really travelling at any stage, and, although he responded to hit the front 2f out, Poet's Word was already looming up at that point and soon swept by, Cracksman keeping on to pull clear of the rest but no match on the day; it might seem odd to say about a colt that has won 2 more Group 1s this year, but suddenly he does have a bit to prove, and it wouldn't be at all surprising if headgear was applied in the King George given the recent signals.

took his winning run to 5, scrambling home against a well-ridden rival, getting the rail late on crucial, just seemingly not quite himself and though probably not ideally suited by the track (for all that he's won here twice, his other win also hard fought, and seemed undone by inexperience as much as anything when a close third in the Derby), another excuse did emerge, banging his head on the stall when anticipating the start; held up, still plenty to do and off the bridle 4f out, closed gradually straight, switched to rail 1f out, stayed on to lead final strides; he'll remain the one to beat wherever he goes, the Prince of Wales's Stakes the next port of call.

after 6 months off, picked up where he left off when last seen, not having to run close to his Champion Stakes-winning form but that was only to be expected at this stage of the season; chased leader, went with zest, ridden 2f out, quickened to lead 1f out, forged clear to win easily, suited by the way the race developed getting a lead from his chief rival's pacemaker; he's sure to continue to be hard to beat this season, with the Arc back here in the autumn his long-term target.

had gone on well from his defeat in the Derby, despite supposed immaturity, controversially missing the Arc, though that decision was clearly fully vindicated by his much-improved performance here, as good as any in Europe this year, and one which promises much for a 4-y-o campaign, when hopefully he will clash with his stable companion Enable at some stage, perhaps here in the King George; in touch, travelled well, led over 2f out, stayed on strongly, impressive; he's clearly as effective over this trip as over further, at least under testing conditions, and he handles very soft ground much better than most.

has really come of age, though this in itself was only signing the big statement he'd made at York, a brief flat spot on the home turn - almost a carbon-copy of the Voltigeur - a tell-tale indication that there's still some edges to be put on him yet, fostering the general feeling of an awesome 4-y-o campaign in the pipeline, but once rolling he put the race to bed quickly over 1f out, still looking full of running at the end, though the pace had been slow, not enabling him to turn it on fully; there's no horse in Europe, bar stable-companion Enable, with a better profile for what looks a thin Arc this year, yet he reportedly won't be returning for it next month, a decision that seems to ignore all of the irrefutable evidence from the colt and the climate, whatever the case for the defence.

has learnt with every start and after an 8-week break to strengthen and mature that bit more he was able to showcase his talent in a well-run race at this flat, galloping track that brought the very best out of him, putting up one of the middle-distance performances of the year to completely rout this field; always in touch in fourth place, he didn't travel as sweetly in the first half of the race, shaken up intermittently before the home turn, but once they'd turned in he made rapid headway to lead around 3f out and very quickly - and impressively - put the race to bed, storming clear and continuing to pour it on until Dettori took it easy towards the finish; a powerful galloper with stacks of talent and a rapid rate of progression in just 5 career starts to date, Cracksman looks a Group-1 winner in waiting and could yet develop into a colt right out of the top drawer and, whether we see him again this autumn or not, he will be kept in training for what will be an exciting 4-y-o campaign.

ran at least as well as at Epsom and appeals as the best long-term prospect in this field, seemingly ridden with one eye on Wings of Eagles on this occasion, in his slipstream for much of the way, mastering that one late on only to find Capri pulling out a bit more; held up, ridden entering straight, came wide, stayed on, just failed; with further improvement likely it is surely only a matter of time before he gets off the mark in pattern company.

hadn't impressed everyone in the Trial here, but that form had been boosted since and he built on it himself, albeit unable to justify good support on just his third start, not lacking anything for stamina over this longer trip but, if anything, leaving the impression that he's not yet the finished article, this environment clearly a lot tougher than what he'd previously faced, also ridden more to the fore in a well-run race than the others in the frame, though any disadvantage in that was only slight; prominent main group, hampered after 1f and tended to go in snatches, driven over 3f out, every chance 1f out, stayed on; he was having just his third run and may well have more still to offer this term, still a good chance that he will make up into a high-class colt.

looked one to follow after winning his maiden and was all the rage in the betting for this Derby trial (as low as 11/1 antepost for the main race itself beforehand), and though forced to work hard to maintain his unbeaten record upped 2f in trip after 6 months off, was clear value for extra having conceded first run to a more experienced and race-fit rival, whilst understandably also showing signs of his inexperience under pressure; handy, shaken up when shuffled back over 2f out, forced to switch and chased leader over 1f out, ran green but stayed on to lead near line, responding really well to pressure; he'll reportedly head for another trial next, either the Dante or the Chester Vase, and he remains an exciting prospect, one that is likely to be well suited by 1½m when the time comes.

(by Frankel: fifth foal: half-brother to useful 2-y-o 7f winner (barely stays 1½m) Fantastic Moon (by Dalakhani): dam 7.6f-9f winner) made plenty of appeal on paper, a grand type physically, and he looked a good prospect, well backed in making a winning debut; held up, took keen hold, headway and every chance from 2f out, led inside final 1f, kept on well; will stay 1¼m; type to do much better and is one to follow in 2017.
