Won at Newcastle in 2021 but came last at Wolverhampton in 2022 on his only other AW start, both on Tapeta; had turf wins last year at Windsor in May, Newbury in June and in Hungary in September, before two minor honours at Newmarket in the autumn; ran respectably on both attempts at 1m6f (last summer) but has more to prove going beyond that for the first time.

She made giant strides in quick time in the spring, winning 2m handicaps at Lingfield (twice) and Doncaster; disappointed at Haydock in May and again after five months off at Newmarket (1m4f, heavy); could resume her progress back on AW but she does now have a point to prove.

Veteran with just one British win to his name and that back in August 2021; he does retain a good deal of ability, however, and has finished placed in 1m4f AW handicaps on his last two starts; shaped like a non-stayer on his previous attempt at 2m, though.

Looked suited by the drop back to 1m2f when a comfortable winner from the front in the mud at Newmarket in November; faded to finish well held over an extended 1m4f at Newcastle on his final start so this return to a slightly shorter trip looks the right move on reappearance; still relatively lightly raced for his top stable.

Verdict

Having won three of his last four starts and four of his last six, including over 1m6f on soft ground last time, the progressive DIVINE COMEDY brings an appealing record. There are notable pros and cons with the rest, so Goobinator is feared most despite his long absence, while Splendent, Carzola and Prince Alex are also considered.[Richard Austen]
