Winning for the second time when successful over 1m2f at Navan (good) earlier this month. Races off an 8lb higher mark here and shapes as if this step up in trip will suit.

Easy winner over 1m3f at Newbury (good-to-firm) last time out. Better ground that day appeared to suit and he looks a leading contender with a tongue tie worn for the first time off a 14lb higher mark.

Betting

Forecast

Communique (9/2), First Eleven (6/1), Downdraft (6/1), Cross Counter (8/1), Baghdad (9/1), Making Miracles (10/1), Dubhe (10/1), Corgi (12/1), Lucius Tiberius (14/1), Dukhan (14/1), Elegiac (16/1), Cassini (16/1), Occupy (20/1), Lucky Deal (20/1), He's Amazing (20/1), Baileys Excelerate (28/1), Billy Ray (33/1), Perfect Illusion (50/1), Lisheen Castle (66/1)

Verdict

FIRST ELEVEN represents a leading yard and can take what looks a highly competitive renewal of this three-year-old handicap contest. Trainer John Gosden has taken this race twice in the past and his charge looks capable of getting the better of Dubhe who impressed when winning at Sandown last time out and should appreciate the step up in distance. Mark Johnston has no fewer than six in the race and Downdraft, another likely to appreicate the step up in distance can finish best of his representatives by claiming third. Handicap debutant Cross Counter is another to consider having run well to finish runner-up last time.
