Progressed with racing between October and December 2018 (mainly on the AW), justifying favouritism when making a winning handicap debut at Newcastle (1m); 6lb higher for the return to turf; up in trip.

Dark Angel gelding who is bred to stay this trip (half-brother to four winners including Monarch's Glen (1m1f-1m3f)); best effort to date came when beaten ½L by Great Bear at Wolverhampton (1m+) in November; handicap debut.

Half-brother to the 2013 Musidora winner Liber Nauticus; runner up on the AW at Wolverhampton (1m1f+) and Kempton (1m); place possibilities, but could find that a couple are slightly better treated on handicap debut.

$400,000 yearling; brother to the 1m AW winner Althaaqib; placed on all three starts and generally progressing well; finished just over 1L behind subsequent 2000 Guineas runner up King Of Change at Wolverhampton (1m1f+) in November.

Galileo filly; cost 800,000gns as a yearling; has shown plenty of ability over 7f (twice a runner up) and is bred to be suited by a greater emphasis on stamina; that said, she didn't set the world alight on seasonal reappearance at Nottingham (1m+).

Australia colt (20,000gns yearling); raised his game when beaten a short-head by Gold Bere at Lingfield (1m) in January; will need to do so once more now switched to handicapping and racing on turf for the first time.

Mastercraftsman filly; has run to a similar standard of form on all four starts (7f-1m+); finished just in front of today's rival Mary Somerville on handicap debut at Nottingham; 1lb lower.

Off the mark at the third time of asking in a fairly moderate 7f maiden auction fillies' stakes at Wolverhampton in September; scope to do better over this trip on handicap debut (half-sister to a 1m2f dirt winner), but in all reality does need to.

Betting

Forecast

Sezim (11/4), Copal (7/2), Mary Somerville (5/1), Amjaady (6/1), Holy Kingdom (13/2), Battle Of Wills (7/1), Arctic Fox (16/1), Minnelli (33/1)

Verdict

A race which lacks a real standout contender, with plenty of those declared having shown a broadly similar level of ability. This longer trip could see the 800,000gns yearling Mary Summerville in a better light, but at this stage she's appearing plenty costly enough. Furthermore, Roger Varian's Sezim could make the frame but a couple of others are taken against the field, namely the handicap debutantes Amjaady and COPAL. The selection progressed with racing during the autumn, often appearing as if a further step up in trip was required (half-brother to the 1m1f-1m3f winner Monarch's Glen).
