14:20 Newbury Sat 22 September 2018
Dual winner this year including in a 1m4f Group 3 contest at Goodwood (good-to-firm) early last month. One for the shortlist under a penalty.
Winner of this race 12 months ago and recorded a first victory since when winning over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (good) last time out. Another bold show expected.
Good second beaten 3L by Stradivarius in a 1m6f Group 2 at York (good-to-firm) in May. Disappointing in staying races since and is dropping back in trip.
Fair form in Listed and Group company this year and got back to winnings when taking a 1m2f conditions race at Doncaster (good-to-soft) earlier this month. More needed in this contest.
Finished sixth in this race last year and ran well when second in a 1m2f handicap at Ffos Las (good-to-soft) last time out. Plenty to find on ratings.
Winner of a Group 3 race over an extended 1m4f at Chester (good) in May. Absent since disappointing in the Derby the following month and one for the shortlist in this contest.
Winner of three of his four starts so far including by 2L over 1m4f in an all-weather handicap at Kempton a month ago. Stepping up markedly in grade.
