J: Paul Mulrennan

T: Tony Carroll

Back to a realistic mark now and he's run well in two of his last three starts, finishing close behind two of today's rivals when fifth at Kempton last time; fully effective over C&D; each-way shout with Paul Mulrennan a good booking for him.

Struggled initially for Tony Carroll but his close second at Newcastle in November was more in keeping with his French form; took a backward step last time but he's been gelded since and he remains of interest.

Second in a red-hot AW handicap on his reappearance and stepped forward from that when winning at Doncaster last month (6f, soft; cheekpieces first time); backward step at Kempton 13 days ago but likely to give his running.

Chased home Ferrous at Wolverhampton on return to action at Wolverhampton four weeks ago and ran to a similar level when winning at Doncaster 13 days ago (6f, soft; cheekpieces first time); his yard continues in fine form and he's set for another prominent showing.

Capable at the right level and she ran right up to her best when a close third at Kempton 18 days ago (6f), not aiding her cause by hanging left in the closing stages; good chance if she can keep straighter this time.

Last two wins over 6f and he could have done without the drying weather over this easy 5f; will be happier back on turf but there's no wiggle room off this mark and he didn't offer a lot on his Chelmsford comeback.

Consistent on turf last year including a win at Doncaster (6f, good); off five months and can go well fresh, but well held in three goes on the AW and not sure a fast 5f like this is ideal.

Verdict

Judged on best form, AMAZONIAN DREAM looks capable of defying a 5lb penalty for his Windsor success. Knebworth, who holds a solid chance, is second choice ahead of Fantasy Master. Magnificence would command respect if turning up here instead of Doncaster.[Steve Boow]
