Contesting decent races over jumps in recent seasons including when beaten 50L in a valuable handicap hurdle at Aintree (good) earlier this month. Worth a check in the market on first Flat appearance since 2015.

Winner of two of his five AW starts but pulled up in a novices' handicap hurdle at Ascot (good) in November on his most recent start. Market support would be notable on return from a break.

Forecast

Sleeping Lion (5/4), Crystal King (15/8), Lexington Law (7/1), Inn The Bull (8/1), Dr Richard Kimble (14/1), Battle Of Marathon (25/1), All Set To Go (33/1), Throckley (66/1)

Verdict

CRYSTAL KING represents a top yard who do well with their four-year-old's and he can get his season off to the perfect start with a victory in this eight runner handicap. Sleeping Lion was twice a winner last season and he can finish runner-up on his seasonal reappearance while third place can go to Lexington Law who is one of two representatives for his trainer.
  1. Crystal King
