Completing a double when winning a valuable 6f contest at York (good-to-firm) in June and ran well when beaten 1L at Newmarket (good) over this trip subsequently. Slightly disappointing over the same C&D last time out but remains of interest here.

Ended his two-year-old campaign with a Listed success on soft ground over 6f at Maisons-Laffitte back in October. Well held in five starts since being gelded during the winter though hampered when finishing seventh at Newmarket (good-to-soft) last time out. Wears a hood for the first time today.

Winner of three of his four starts this year including over 7f the last twice. Most recent of those victories came on good-to-firm ground at York last month. Has made all for two of his three victories and has to defy a 6lb rise in the weights in this.

Successful on debut over 6f at Pontefract (good-to-firm) in July last year. Best effort in three subsequent starts came when finishing 4L third of 12 over the same trip at Ayr (good-to-soft) in September but absent since and is an interesting runner on her handicap debut.

Forecast

Nobly Born (5/2), Golden Apollo (4/1), Lualiwa (9/2), Private Matter (8/1), Goodwood Crusader (9/1), Bohemian Flame (11/1), Turanga Leela (12/1), Megan Lily (14/1), Belle Meade (14/1), Smokey Lane (20/1), Poet's Society (20/1), Repton (25/1)

Verdict

With no obvious pace amongst the confirmed runners Kevin Ryan's LUALIWA is taken to make all the running dropping back to 6f for the first time this season. The selection has won his last two starts and can complete the hat-trick to give the Rest Of The World team a winner here. Nobly Born ran well in a highly competitive contest at Newmarket last time and can claim second off the same mark here while Golden Apollo who had been in good form prior to disappointing last time out can take third.
