Course winner whose latest success came in the Spring Cup at Newbury last year. Running well in defeat at Meydan this winter and while he was well beaten on return at York (too keen), he may bounce back here; signs in his pedigree he will stay.
Last seen finishing tailed off in the Chester Cup but won a Listed race at that course last year. Probably wants a bit further than this but he's dangerous to gift an easy lead to and not ruled out.
Three wins from four starts as a juvenile. A shade below that level in two runs this year but still unexposed and this is easier than his more recent assignments. Needs to settle better.
In good form on AW this winter but form has tailed off more recently and has been on the go for some time. Propensity to starts slowly off putting at this course and others preferred here.
Last Year's Winner
Contango (11/10), Manjaam (5/2), Final (7/2), My Reward (4/1), Banksea (4/1), Baydar (20/1)
