Good level of form in novice events before finishing fourth of 18 on his handicap bow at Royal Ascot with Occupy and Elegiac behind. Plenty of room for improvement and looks a leading player.

Raced prominently for a long way when finishing behind Cross Counter and Occupy at Royal Ascot and made all to land a four-runner contest at Hamilton. Up 3lb, but has to be considered.

Well beaten on latest outing over 1m2f at Sandown and has been dropped 2lb. Earlier form this season offers more encouragement, but he has a bit to prove.

Did not get the clearest of runs at Royal Ascot when fifth, one place behind Cross Counter and ahead of Elegiac. That was only his fourth race so he has to be of interest off the same mark.

Has been well placed to win three of his four starts this season, latterly at Haydock. Tries his longest trip so far and is up another 5lb, but cannot be dismissed given his recent record.

Seemed to relish the step up to 1m3½f when back to winning ways at Windsor. Has to cope with a 4lb higher mark, but is progressive and warrants respect.

Defied a rise in the weights when scoring at Chester on his latest outing and now finds himself up another 4lb. Stays this trip well and is not one to dismiss lightly.

Betting

Forecast

Cross Counter (13/8), Corelli (3/1), Occupy (7/2), Elegiac (5/1), Gossip Column (11/2), Desert Path (12/1), Berkshire Royal (14/1), King's Proctor (16/1)

Verdict

Elegiac may be the best of his stable's two runners, Corelli is interesting on his handicap debut and Gossip Column and Desert Path may have more to offer after wins on their most recent starts. However, the finish may be fought out by CROSS COUNTER and Occupy, who were fourth and fifth in the King George V Handicap at the Royal meeting and who can take another step forward. Berkshire Royal continues to climb the handicap, but stays well and is not out of it.
