10/1

Has gone the wrong way since winning at Lingfield a year ago, running poorly on final 2018 start, and looking none too keen when tailed off at Brighton on his return in May. Not one to place any faith in, despite his ability.

Won over 1½m at Lingfield in December, but a little in-and-out since, failing to find much after travelling well at Salisbury (1½m, soft) last time. May do better on quicker ground, and possibly still working his way to peak fitness.

Best effort to date when fourth in a soft-ground maiden over 1¼m here in April, but she hasn't progressed, and beaten over 13L on handicap debut at Brighton last time. Still early days, but has a bit to prove.

Off the mark on his second handicap start when tackling 1½m for the first time at Salisbury in May. Excused his next effort on soft ground, and better than the result when fifth in a blanket finish at Lingfield last time. Should be thereabouts.

Good third in an AW event over 1½m on handicap debut at Lingfield in April. Struggled on turf debut at Windsor subsequently, though, and has something to prove on this surface.

Betting

Forecast

Tamachan (11/10), Anyonecanhaveitall (2/1), Twenty Years On (3/1), Taurean Dancer (5/1), Brooklyn Boy (15/2), Highland Sky (10/1)

Verdict

Some have questions to answer here, including the well-bred Tamachan after failing to go on from a promising fourth in maiden company here in the spring. Twenty Years On is easier to make excuses for having had things go against him twice since winning a Salisbury handicap on quick ground, and he should go well, but a chance is taken on ANYONECANHAVEITALL, who has been beaten in all three handicaps, but has acquitted himself well each time, and will benefit from a drop in trip, and the assistance of Silvestre de Sousa.
