J: Ryan Moore

T: Joseph Patrick O’Brien

Only fourth start when third in the 1m6f Copper Horse at this meeting last year (good to firm); well beaten in two top races in his only other handicaps and odds-on when winning two non-handicaps on AW in February, not needing to be near his best; fifth in Group 3 five weeks ago won't be good enough either but he's 2lb lower than this time last year, so case can be made.

Form & Verdict

In-form handicapper; won over 1m4f here in December; C&D winner on penultimate start; good second to the rejuvenated Bowerman over 1m4f last week; race-fitness should help but meets Okita Soushi on 17lb worse than handicap terms.

Form & Verdict

Versatile performer who has scored in five categories, bumper, Flat turf, AW, hurdles, chases; has won two of his four starts at this venue, including the corresponding race last year, beating a Joseph O'Brien-trained runner with a rating of 96; takes on the 105-rated Okita Soushi this time; in common with that rival, has run well when fresh.

Form & Verdict

Was in the form of his life for David Elsworth in 2018, the highlight when winning the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes; spent the last two seasons with Adrian Keatley; won a four-runner Pontefract event in 2021; hard to fancy on 2022 form; best over 1m4f.
