5/1

Consistent Front-runner who was caught close home by Moraawed on Doncaster reappearance and beaten a head. Now enjoys 2lb pull and pair were clear of remainder. Tactics should be suited to this track and more to come.

Two wins last season but seemed to improve for wind and gelding operations over the winter when doing really well to finish second on comeback here when not enjoying the clearest of passages. 3lb rise is fair.

Much improved when winning Newbury nursery last backend and 7lb rise not excessive. Gelded since and this tougher, but if ready to go on seasonal reappearance looks a player.

All runs at this trip and consistent. Behind two of today's rivals on comeback run here last month so needs to eke out a bit of improvement.

Two wins at this trip as juvenile but finished her campaign running over 7f and not sure the drop down to 6 is what she wants now.

Two wins in lesser company last season but hasn't fired either run this term, including handicap debut latest and plenty to prove for now.

Did really well to get up close home to beat Dazzling Dan at Doncaster as nothing else got in to the race from behind. Up 8lb, but that was turf debut so likely has plenty more to come and has to be on the short list.

Just the four starts and they have all been at the minimum trip. Fair fourth in Hamilton conditions event recently and this handicap debut demands more.

Showed one again that this is his optimum trip when creditable third here on Guineas day in similar event. Blinkered first time now and wouldn't need to improve much for them to be involved.

Busy as a juvenile with two wins from 11 runs and has started this campaign consistently though looks to need to find a bit extra for win purposes.

Had to work hard to get off the mark on third start last season at 2/7 when just scraping home. Failed to see out 1m on comeback run but while happier back down in trip, needs to find improvement.

Off the mark when making all to beat market rival at Goodwood over 7f but gave impression the drop down to this trip, at which he has run well at before, will be ideal. His high draw could be ideal for this Front-runner.

Betting

Forecast

Moraawed (3/1), Dazzling Dan (5/1), Yousini (13/2), Luxor (7/1), Dominus (10/1), Top Breeze (10/1), Rocket Action (11/1), Naughty Rascal (12/1), James Watt (12/1), Kinks (14/1), Don Armado (16/1), Tinto (25/1), Octave (25/1), He'zanarab (25/1), Dupioni (25/1), Kamikaze Lord (33/1)

Verdict

Plenty can be fancied and while Moraawed and Dazzling Dan fought out a Doncaster race that should work out, narrow preference goes to DOMINUS who showed a good attitude to get off the mark last time and may be able to bag the stand rail.

  2. Moraawed
