Useful handicapper in Ireland but held off a mark of 93 at The Curragh (good-to-firm) when last in action back in July. Wears blinkers for the first time and has plenty to find with the principals on his debut for this yard.

Winner of this race in 2016 but failed to score in eight outings since. Ran well when third in the Nunthorpe at York (5f, good) on his penultimate outing and probably found the ground too soft when disappointing subsequently.

Ran well when runner-up in a Group 3 contest at Sandown (good-to-firm) in July and put in his best effort since when finishing a close fifth at Beverley last time out. Has won over C&D in the past but likely to find a few too good today.

Forecast

Cotai Glory (9/2), Muthmir (5/1), Judicial (13/2), Waady (7/1), Take Cover (8/1), Priceless (9/1), Hit The Bid (12/1), Encore d'Or (14/1), Caspian Prince (14/1), Mirza (25/1), Goldream (25/1), Thesme (33/1), Line Of Reason (50/1), Rosie Briar (50/1), Go On Go On Go On (50/1), Just Glamorous (80/1), Abstraction (125/1)

Verdict

TAKE COVER returned to form when winning in Listed company last time out and he can take this competitive looking Group 3 sprint contest. The selection has put in some good efforts at the highest level in the past and is taken to get the better of last years winner Cotai Glory who was placed in a Group 1 event on his penultimate outing. Of the remainder Muthmir has registered a Group race success already this season while Priceless is another to consider having beaten a number of these at Haydock in the spring.
  1. Take Cover
