3/1

Recorded a second career win when scoring on seasonal reappearance at Chepstow (1m4f, good to firm) but came up short on handicap debut at Goodwood one month later; stamina to prove over 2m.

Closely related to the top-class stayer Order Of St George; shown a strong level of form (improving) on all three starts to date, keeping on well behind a useful Godolphin 3yo at Pontefract (1m4f, good) latest; of major interest on handicap debut.

Hasn't progressed since finishing a respectable third to Sir Ron Priestley at Ripon (1m4f, good) in April; blinkers are applied as he seeks to get back on the right track.

9/1

A consistent, yet fairly exposed seven-race maiden; eased very marginally in the weights since finishing third on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (1m4f) earlier this month; a real surprise if she's good enough to take this contest.

9/2

On an upward curve posting back-to-back wins at Catterick (2m, soft) and Chelmsford (1m6f); carries a 6lb penalty for that latest neck win (beat a six-race maiden); clearly on a good handicap mark, and the 5lb claim of his rider is also a boost.

Betting

Forecast

Grenadier Guard (1/1), Brasca (3/1), Champagne Marengo (9/2), Luck Of Clover (9/1), Arthur Pendragon (14/1)

Verdict

The improving Champagne Marengo is lowly weighted and would make plenty of appeal but for the presence of the Mark Johnston-trained GRENADIER GUARD in the line-up. The selection faced a tough task giving 6lb to the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Dubai Tradition at Pontefract (1m4f) last month. By Australia and closely related to the top-class stayer Order Of St George he should relish stepping up in trip on handicap debut. He can take this race in his stride before heading onto much loftier assignments in the weeks and months ahead.
