Produced a career best effort to win over C&D two runs back and while a shade disappointing last time, he probably paid the price for racing prominently. Better expected now on quicker ground and should run well.

Dead-heated for first at Goodwood in October and has returned in good form this campaign with two placed efforts. More progress likely stepped up in trip here.

Improved from debut to win at Leicester in September and while he showed little on return at Nottingham, he should improve for that here on handicap debut upped in trip.

Impressive surprise winner at Newmarket (20/1) last month and ran with credit from his revised handicap mark at Epsom last time. Very keen before the race so first-time hood may help and not ruled out, despite the widest draw here.

Won twice on AW but yet to record a win in six starts on turf. Best turf effort came when placed behind Austraian School. Not as his best last time but likely to bounce back and booking of Norton a positive to his chance.

10/1

One win from six starts. Disappointing last time when sent off favourite at Newmarket and racing too keen throughout plenty of the race. First-time hood needs to work for him to have a say.

Placed on debut at Evreux but well beaten in a better race on only other French start and showed very little on debut for this yard last month here. Well backed when returning here for a handicap last time but well beaten and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Austrian School (15/8), Istanbul Sultan (5/2), Berkshire Royal (9/2), Shuhood (6/1), Neverbeen To Paris (10/1), Morning Wonder (16/1), Heart Of Soul (25/1)

Verdict

The piece of form that saw AUSTRIAN SCHOOL and Berkshire Royal battle it over course and distance two runs back may prove strongest here and preference is for the former to confirm the form. Istanbul Sultan could be the danger now tried over this longer trip.
  1. Austrian School
  2. Berkshire Royal
  3. Istanbul Sultan
