Admirably consistent stayer who can be forgiven his effort in the Chester Cup, and was back to form when third to stablemate Dee Ex Bee in the Henry II Stakes at Sandown. This is easier, and he is shortlisted.

Successful three times last year, including twice on the AW at Kempton. Needed the run on return at Newcastle (1½m), and will do better, but looked like a non-stayer when tried at this trip last season.

Form figures are not inspiring, and only fifth behind Stradivarius in Yorkshire Cup last time. That was his 15th consecutive run at Group level, though, and this drop in class is overdue. Not dismissed lightly with that in mind.

Won King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2016 when named Primitivo (for Alan King) and has since shown smart form in Hong Kong. Creditable fourth over 2m in Dubai Gold Cup at Meydan in March, and interesting now starting out for new yard.

Had the run of the race when winning the Chester Cup on penultimate start, and just a respectable fourth behind Dee Ex Bee in the Henry II Stakes last time. Ground fine, but has a little bit to prove at this level.

Best effort in handicaps last season when winning a heavy-ground event over 1¾m at Haydock by 7L. Has run well up in class on both starts since, finishing in front of Austrian School and Making Miracles at Sandown on return. Holds very solid claims.

Very good second in Group 3 St Simon Stakes at Newbury (1½m, soft) in October 2017 for Brian Meehan. Failed to match that form last season, but could be revived by a switch of stables, and not one to dismiss.

Betting

Forecast

Mekong (1/1), Raheen House (9/2), Austrian School (5/1), Making Miracles (8/1), Buzz (14/1), Desert Skyline (14/1), Gold Mount (16/1), Glan Y Gors (100/1)

Verdict

MEKONG had Austrian School and Making Miracles behind when chasing home Dee Ex Bee in the Henry II at Sandown last time, and he will be even better returned to a soft surface, so gets a confident vote. Raheen House could get back on track having moved to William Haggas since last seen, and Desert Skyline is not ruled out having been highly tried for the past couple of seasons.
