Finished runner-up in a Group 3 contest at Sandown (good-to-firm) when last in action just over a month ago. Had previously run some decent races in valuable handicaps and is an interesting contender here.

Running well so far this season completing a double when winning at Doncaster (good-to-firm) in June and finishing a close third in a valuable contest over C&D last month. Races off the same mark here and one for the shortlist in this.

Lightly raced since finishing a nose second in the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket (good-to-firm) in July 2015. Below par in three starts this season but tackles this off a mark 13lb lower than when a close fifth in the 2015 Stewards Cup.

Betting

Forecast

Stake Acclaim (4/1), Lexington Abbey (4/1), Pipers Note (11/2), Mirza (11/2), Green Door (7/1), Hakam (7/1), Willytheconqueror (9/1), Sir Robert Cheval (10/1), Jack Dexter (10/1), Tropics (14/1), Blaine (20/1), Doc Sportello (33/1)

Verdict

PIPERS NOTE has been in good form so far this season and ran well when finishing third over C&D last time out. Ruth Carr's charge is flexible in terms of tactics and he can confirm form with the horse who finished one place behind him on that occasion Lexington Abbey today. Top weight Mirza ran well when finishing runner-up in a Group 3 last time and off a mark just 1lb higher than for his most recent handicap success he can claim third today.
