1m2f novice winner (good) for the Gosden stable last July and recorded his best run in four handicap starts since when third of seven over 1m2f at Chelmsford in November; off since but he has gone well fresh before and is still relatively low mileage.

Form & Verdict

Half-sister to very smart middle-distance winner Al Hakeem; unbeaten after two starts, having won twice by narrow margins over 1m2f towards end of last summer (AW/good to firm); makes handicap debut after 253-day absence but has obvious scope for progress this year.

Kingman half-sister to the same owner's 1m/1m2f winner Al Hakeem (including Group 2; 123); 9-4 at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last month and she knuckled down well to lead close home; that was a promising start but this is much tougher under a penalty.

Six-time winner who looked as good as ever when second on last month's seasonal debut at Brighton (1m2f, good); usually runs well when fresh, though, and may find younger rival better handicapped here.

Gained his only win from eight starts in a three-runner race but, having been gelded and given a wind op in the autumn, made pleasing seasonal debut when close third at Lingfield (1m2f, good) a fortnight ago; might be the answer.

Seen more in France than Britain thus far and while she's shown a good level of ability, her limitations look to have been exposed in Listed/Group 3 races; returns from five months off and she will need to take a leap forward tackling AW for the first time.

1-5 in France and 0-8 for this yard but improved when stepped up in trip last summer, finishing placed three times in amateur riders' races, the latest at Chelmsford (1m6f, Polytrack) in September; has to be a question mark against him over this sharp 1m after 196 days off; stable triple-handed.
