- Weatherbys Racing Bank Supporting Mental Health Foundation Stakes (Listed) (Registered as the Royal Windsor Stakes) (Class 1)
- 1m 31y, Good (Good to Firm in places in the last 3f)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Twice scored at this level last year at Sandown, well beaten there recently however and no easy task giving away weight to rivals here.
Dual Listed winner on AW in France, again showing useful form in that sphere in early 2018 but well beaten at Sandown latest (ground not in favour). Others appeal more for this event.
Twice a Group winner over this trip in 2015, has travelled the world since but returned from 395 day off with narrow second on the AW at Kempton this month and could be a big player again.
Seemingly improved for some Meydan winter sunshine. Lines up on the back of a cosy 1m turf (good) handicap success in mid-February at Meydan and capable of going well.
Won a Listed 7f contest at Haydock last summer in a decent campaign, was in fine tune early in the year out in Dubai and now returns for a Hannon team going very well. Decent claims.
Admirable performer for connections, now nine-years-old, scored at Group 2/3 level last year and entitled to have needed the run last time at Sandown in higher grade. Should be plenty sharper now.
Has only started 11 times despite making debut back in 2014, plenty talent and went close in heavy-ground Listed contest at Leicester last time. Remains vulnerable against a few of these however.
Last Year's Winner
Oh This Is Us (2/1), Sovereign Debt (4/1), Arod (9/2), Khafoo Shememi (9/2), Via Via (7/1), Hors De Combat (14/1), Mr Owen (16/1)
