7/1

Novice stakes winner over 6f on soft ground here in June 2016. Had just two subsequent outings and interesting to see if he can build on a promising handicap debut at Newmarket (7f, good-to-firm) last month.

Sole success came in a Doncaster (7f, good-to-soft) maiden last October. Fair efforts in handicaps over 1m the last twice and interesting down in trip.

Returned to form with a 2L fourth over C&D on good-to-firm ground last time out. Races off a 1lb lower mark and a repeat of that would see him involved in the finish.

Improving with racing this term and was a winner over C&D on good-to-firm ground a week ago. One for the shortlist off a 4lb higher mark.

Forecast

Rux Ruxx (1/1), Knockout Blow (6/1), Wild Dancer (7/1), Amplification (7/1), Golden Slam (7/1), Harbour Approach (8/1), Dear Bruin (16/1), Assassinate (16/1), Luna Bear (16/1), Jupiter (20/1)

Verdict

GOLDEN SLAM remains open to improvement and he can build on a promising handicap debut last month by defying top weight in this competitive contest. Trainer Roger Varian comes into this contest with a 21% strike-rate (6/29) in recent weeks and his charge is taken to get the better of Rux Ruxx who was a winner here seven days ago. Dear Bruin, impressive winner here on her penultimate start can take third.
