Got up late on over 1m2f at Newmarket this July; will need to better his subsequent efforts to take this, though soft ground wouldn't have been ideal the last time.

J: Tom Marquand

T: Ed Walker

Ran well once on soft in 2020; first leg of a double last summer came here and he also got up late on over 1m2f at Newmarket this July; big player on that but he needs better than he delivered on last two outings; slowly away on latest.

Kicked off for this yard with back-to-back 1m2f wins at Newbury (soft/good) early last season but that's as good as it's got; slipping back to a better mark but opposable at the minute.

Won a 1m2f AW novice during the winter and returned with a close third on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (1m4f); didn't offer much at York but gelded in the meantime and he's still lightly raced.

J: Marco Ghiani

T: Marco Botti

Left his first two runs (both on turf) behind when upped in trip and readily making all at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) last November; this half-brother to Derby winner Golden Horn could continue to improve now upped further in distance, and he has potential off his opening mark.

Hung both ways when a narrow winner over 1m4f at Goodwood last month and returned there a week later to follow up over 1m6f (good to soft); no knocking that performance and a 4lb rise seems fair; effective at this trip.

Form & Verdict

Better than ever with a 4l win at Bath (1m2f, good to soft) in May and wasn't too shoddy when only 2l away at Newbury next time off this mark; failed to reach the same level at York but easy to envisage her bouncing back.

Entitled to get off the mark in a maiden at Carlisle (1m1f, soft), especially having had the run of things; that form has been let down since but he brings potential into handicaps for his top yard.

J: Jack Mitchell

T: Roger Varian

Has finished third in two visits to Kempton (1m) this year and the form of his latest race is working out well; now switches to turf after a gelding operation but he's a half-brother to a useful winner in this sphere and is strongly respected for in-form yard.

Novice winner who has been holding his own in handicaps, latterly dividing older opposition over 1m2f at Newmarket (good to firm; goes on soft); the blinkers are working and he should be on the premises.

Formerly smart in these colours for David Menuisier; close up off his reduced mark at Newbury (1m2f, good; fine on softer) but then down the field at Newcastle (has placed on AW) and he's become a hard horse to call.

Won two 1m2f handicaps for Mark Todd in May of last year (good to soft/good to firm) and ran okay on stable debut (after a break) at Leicester given a mile was on the sharp side; could step up on that; front-runner.

Stamina on both sides of his pedigree but brother Silver Jubilee did his racing at about this trip; not without support for a backend Newmarket maiden last year, when weakening away late on soft ground.
