Form & Verdict

Has worn cheekpieces or blinkers on his last four starts and his form has taken a downturn; however, perhaps he's been unsuited by the headgear, which is left off today, and he's now 10lb lower than when a fair sixth of 22 in the Lincoln (1m, heavy) in April; versatile ground-wise; interesting.

Unraced beyond 10.3f but the way this Camelot 5yo kept on for third over that trip at Chester two runs ago suggests this step up in distance is worth a go; headgear on his last five starts but not today; effective on Polytrack and could be a contender if seeing it out.

Chasing Aphrodite, Dual Identity

Verdict

The removal of headgear could be a positive for GREATGADIAN, who has been below par in cheekpieces or blinkers on his last four starts, and he’s well handicapped on form as recent as April. The 3yo Sceptic was disappointing at Sandown last time but the form of his convincing win here in June reads well and he is feared most, ahead of the back-to-form Graignes. Mostawaa and One Step Beyond have been prolific this year and are others to consider.[Ben Hutton]
