9/1

Lightly-raced and likely the drop in distance was the issue last time rather than the 5lb rise. Could easily bounce back with quick ground suiting.

Has had a couple of stiff tasks in handicap company and gets a welcome drop in class and in the weights. However could never get going last time and remains best watched.

Took a big step forwards with back-to-back wins on the AW but disappointed back on turf last time. Stable in-form but others preferred on this surface.

Lightly-raced and progressive after a good run on handicap debut in this grade at Ascot in a quick time. Tough ask over a mile in the Silver Bowl here last time and previous win came over this trip. Clearly well thought of and a leading contender.

Raced too freely behind Al Barg last time and still open to improvement based on that and just seven starts. However others more convincing.

Needs to learn to settle and then perhaps she will deliver on her undoubted potential. Handicap debut after stiff task on reappearance in the Fred Darling. Entitled to improve but quick ground also a query.

5/1

Four initial starts came over 6f and then unsuited by a mile last time which has suggested this could be his ideal distance. On a good mark but best two runs came with a bit of cut.

Wasn't well away and found trouble in running but produced a tremendous turn of foot to win cosily on seasonal reappearance. That was a huge step forwards and he's potentially way ahead of the handicapper off just 5lb higher.

Betting

Forecast

Knowing Glance (5/2), Highlight Reel (10/3), Fille De Reve (4/1), No I'm Easy (5/1), Lethal Lunch (8/1), Al Barg (9/1), Aquarium (11/1), Armed Response (20/1)

Verdict

KNOWING GLANCE has clearly progressed hugely over the winter and with the manner of his win on seasonal reappearance he remains potentially well in for an in-form yard. Highlight Reel will appreciate the drop in class and trip and has a lot more to offer. Al Barg also remains a horse with potential for his leading stable and can improve again at this distance.
