Struggled in better contests so far this season including in a Group 3 at The Curragh (1m2f, good-to-firm) earlier this month. Worth a check in the market back in handicaps.

Put a disappointing effort at Royal Ascot (1m4f, good-to-firm) behind him when winning over this trip at The Curragh (good-to-firm) last time out. One for the shortlist despite an 8lb rise in the weights.

Victorious over this trip at Cork on his penultimate outing. Well beaten over 1m4f at the same venue subsequently and this drop in trip should suit.

Betting

Forecast

Lucius Tiberius (7/2), Mawaany (5/1), The King (7/1), Espoir D'Soleil (7/1), Massif Central (7/1), Surrey Hope (7/1), Alcatraz (14/1), Agent Zigzag (14/1), Aussie Valentine (16/1), Aared (20/1), Turbine (25/1), Tennessee Wildcat (25/1)

Verdict

A highly competitive handicap that can see MASSIF CENTRAL take the step up in trip in his stride to record a first victory of the season. The selection has run well over 1m the last twice and can get the better of Mawaany who is likely to have improved for his seasonal debut. Lucius Tiberius has won twice this campaign and can finish third following a hefty rise in the weights.
  1. Massif Central
  2. Mawaany
