25/1

Picked up for 35,000 gns in February having won three races for John Gosden in 2017. Found things a lot harder in 2018 and current mark requires him to be at his very best on his seasonal bow.

Beat Breden at Wolverhampton and was behind that rival in the Lincoln. A draw in stall one would have been unhelpful at Doncaster and he renews rivalry on better terms here. Mark looks high enough, although that is mitigated by rider's claim.

Won four times last season and has finished midfield in the Balmoral and Lincoln on last two outings. Has received some help from the handicapper and he should be happier now he has a bend to go round.

Back to his best with the aid of cheekpieces in the Spring Mile and this race was made his next target. A 6lb rise should be manageable, but his best performances have come on a straight track.

Turf record reads 0-17 and he has twice finished behind Zwayyan and Breden this year. On a positive note he ran Power Of Darkness to a nose in June and reopposes on 5lb better terms. Stable had a double on this card last year including this race.

Lightly raced sort who usually attracts plenty of support in the market. Relegated to second after edging out the in-form Executive Force on his latest start and would appear to have a good prize in him. Needs a good gallop and that seems likely.

Winner of Kempton's London Mile in September and he has always looked marginally better on AW. Dropping towards a favourable mark and stable had a double on this card last year including this contest.

12/1

Record of 1-23 (placed 13 times) and he only beat one home last time. Has a fair bit to find with Wahash and Power Of Darkness on June form, but as his record shows he is usually thereabouts and his price should offer plenty of each-way value.

Showed himself suited to fast surfaces when scoring here and at Carlisle last summer for Hugo Palmer. Failed to stay 1m2f on his return last month and he is yet to prove himself in this grade.

Favourite when finishing behind Petrus in the Spring Mile having landed his prep race at Kempton. Raced a bit too freely at Doncaster and he should get more cover on his round course. Stable 2-2 here since 2014.

Has form at this trip but all his wins have come over shorter. On an attractive mark at present, whilst not running well enough to convince he can take advantage.

Sole win in 27 starts came on very soft ground at Amiens in a low grade race. His Windsor comeback run was poor and he makes little appeal in this company with conditions faster than ideal.

Betting

Forecast

Salute The Soldier (7/2), Waarif (9/2), Petrus (5/1), Zwayyan (6/1), Breden (7/1), Wahash (8/1), Power of Darkness (8/1), Mr Top Hat (12/1), War Glory (12/1), Mythical Madness (12/1), Rampant Lion (16/1), Ghayadh (20/1), Sea Fox (25/1), Tricorn (25/1), Uther Pendragon (50/1)

Verdict

Wahash has a lot going for him but he may be a bit tricky and preference is for SALUTE THE SOLDIER who was demoted after crossing the line in front at Wolverhampton where he had finished alongside prolific winner Executive Force. He has been a short price on his last five starts, possesses a good turn of foot and acts on turf. Power Of Darkness and Breden are both entered at Newmarket on Thursday, but either would enter calculations if re-routed here, whilst Zwayyan ran well from a wide draw in the Lincoln and has always been better on a round track. In contrast Petrus has been better over a straight 7f/1m, whilst Rampant Lion needs to prove himself in this grade.
  1. Salute The Soldier
  2. Zwayyan
  3. Wahash
