Was slightly better drawn than Havana Goldrush when third to him over C&D latest, and markedly so this time; didn't hit the line strongly there, however, and yet to convince fully on any start at 1m-plus.

Form & Verdict

C&D win 10 days ago (good to soft) came off a 15lb lower rating than when last seen on turf; still retains very low mileage on this surface and no great surprise were he able to uphold superiority over four reopposing rivals, despite a 3lb rise and a poor draw.

Havana Goldrush

J: Shariq Mohd

T: J S Moore

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.

Form & Verdict

Gelded and back from Hong Kong this year off a hugely reduced mark; not hard pushed to land Class 6s at Chelmsford and Yarmouth, the latter proving his previous effectiveness over a galloping 1m now extends to soft turf as well; not easily opposed under 4lb penalty.

Returned from Hong Kong with two wins over 7f/1m on soft/Polytrack in April and has run with credit in three outings since, as when third of 13 at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) eight days ago; races off the same mark, but has never attempted this far before and this is a stiff track.

Didn't curl up once taken on by Havana Goldrush last time (C&D), ultimately failing by just a neck; another bold bid likely off 1lb better terms, though like that old rival is drawn a fair bit wider today.
