In good form since joining this yard winning twice including when odds-on under a penalty over C&D on good-to-soft ground in July. Beaten favourite the last twice but remains of interest having finished second of three off this mark last time.

Forecast

Knight Commander (6/4), Maximus Maridius (10/3), Focaccia (7/2), Samson (15/2), Mamoo (12/1), Orion's Might (20/1), Marlais (22/1)

Verdict

FOCACCIA went close when finishing runner-up on his most recent handicap outing in the spring and can register a first victory by defying top weight today. The selection is likely to appreciate the return to 2m having finishing runner-up over further last time out and can see off the improved Knight Commander who was successful over C&D in July. Maximus Maridius, runner-up in handicaps the last twice can claim third on this occasion.
