13/2

Tailed off on return to turf and is 11lb higher than last win on this sort of surface. Does appreciate quick ground but arguably better on AW nowadays and this will prove tough again.

8/11

Back on last winning mark and since finishing down the field in the Victoria Cup has been placed in three starts at this level. Conditions will suit and gets the opportunity to boss a small field from the front. Looks the one to beat.

7/4

Won a nice handicap on just his third start at the back end of last season and looks open to plenty of progress this year. However it was reported that he appreciated some give in the ground so this surface is a query.

Betting

Forecast

Poet's Society (8/11), Monaadhil (7/4), Isomer (5/2), Chevallier (13/2)

Verdict

A small field but an interesting handicap where tactics may play a part. POET'S SOCIETY is the only confirmed front-runner and this consistent performer should be hard to pass. Isomer is proving hard to win with but in fairness has been given some quite stiff tasks while Monaadhil is open to the most improvement of the four runners but there is the query with the likely quick ground.
