Confirmed he's better than a handicapper when a close fifth in the St James's Palace (ahead of Berkshire Shadow) last time; good chance at the weights in this lesser event and may well be capable of better still; leading claims.

Form & Verdict
Smart performance to win Ascot handicap on reappearance (off 102) but never figured after slow start in the Jersey last time (just in front of last Saturday's handicap winner Tacarib Bay); worth another try over this trip but he'll need things to drop right if he's to win.

Giant's Causeway colt; justified favouritism when winning under Jim Crowley on turf at Meydan (7f, good) in early March; penalised for that success, so it'll be interesting to see what he makes of the switch to Tapeta; trainer Saeed Bin Suroor was 7-17 (41%; +£5.22) here in 2021.

Half-brother to the very smart Estidhkaar and the high-class Toormore; has shown fairly useful form himself, landing the odds in Doncaster novice (7f, good) in March; raced too freely when last of six in 1m1f Listed race at Newmarket two weeks ago; today's drop back to 1m should suit but others may have more potential.

Form & Verdict
Beaten at York on debut last year but won all other starts in 2021, including Grade 1 (1m, turf) at Woodbine in September; below that level on dirt for UAE debut in January but easy to overlook that and yard rampant in this division this year; interesting back on grass.
