Has won elsewhere (10 times winner overall) but generally seen as a Chester specialist these days with his last four wins coming there. Has run well on his two starts there this year; looks well handicapped if he can produce his form elsewhere.

Was a smart sort when with Hugo Palmer (ran in the Jersey Stakes in 2017) and this yard has done well with similar sorts. Looked to be on the way back last time over 7f at Doncaster and now tried over 1m; well handicapped and of interest.

A lightly-raced sort he failed to build on a creditable return when finishing down the field on the AW last time (didn't look straightforward). Drops down 3f in trip now with the cheekpieces worn for his only win going back on.

Started the season in very good fashion showing up well in a big-field handicap at Newmarket (just beaten) before taking a lesser-grade Nottingham handicap. That win saw her raised to a career-high mark and running poorly at Ascot last time.

C&D winner who has already registered two wins this year the last coming on turf under a good ride in a race that lacked pace. Showed that win to be no fluke when running better than ever last time (just beaten); slightly more needed in this grade.

His last two starts have very much hinted that he could be returning to winning ways soon (shaped better than the bare result last time; finished with running left). Slipped back below his last winning mark and one to note for this.

Tried over a variety of trips last season winning over 1m on the AW but failing to stay further and ending the season on a low over 6f. Now with new connections there's every chance he could spring back to life; had wind surgery.

This yard appear to have got the best out of him winning with him five times so far and he should strip fitter here for his return run at Chester. Back near his last winning mark but the suspicion is that others will be a little stronger still.

Betting

Forecast

Zabeel Star (5/2), Escobar (10/3), Dubai Horizon (4/1), Calvados Spirit (7/1), Via Via (8/1), Red Tea (10/1), Alejandro (12/1), Sound Advice (14/1), Kenstone (25/1)

Verdict

Just about the best race on the card and a testing one to work out with Escobar looking well handicapped for his new connections who do well with this type. Sound Advice needs to prove that he can produce his best away from Chester while Zabeel Star comes from a stable in rude health at the moment and has to be respected. The vote overall though goes to ALEJANDRO who has been knocking on the door of late and has slipped to a very attractive mark. Calvados Spirit is one to watch in the market for new connections having shown himself to be a capable sort last season when with William Muir and having had some wind surgery in the interim.
