3/1

Winner of over £1.5m in prize money after hugely profitable spell in Hong Kong and returned to these shores with C&D Listed win latest where he beat more fancied Raheen House by 2½L. Looks a major contender on that form.

Won four times last season and already scored at Ayr over 1m5f this season which was two starts back. Has an excellent strike rate but does appear to have it to do with top rated pair 13lb higher than him.

Won a valuable 1m4f Haydock handicap latest which came hot on the heels of a bold second at Ayr first time out. Questions to answer now at Group level but looks an improved sort this season so can't rule him out.

Group Three and Listed winner (beating Weekender) at three but quiet since. Second to Gold Mount over C&D on return arguably his best form since three-year-old days so is respected here although reversal with aforementioned could be tricky.

Doncaster winner first time out has struggled since in a Group Two and Three with the latter won by Crystal Ocean. Is a previous Listed winner but is 0-7 at Group level and general feeling here is that he will be battling for a place.

Extremely lightly raced eight-year-old won three times last season before C&D Ebor third (Weekender second). Another excellent second on return bodes well but is 8lb worse off with Weekender this time.

Just touched off in a C&D Listed race last season before fine weight carrying performance to be second in the Ebor. Still winless at Pattern level but surely a matter of time and after a warm up win at Chelmsford latest he has excellent claims here.

Won four times last season including at this level at Goodwood in a three-runner race. Not shown anything in three starts this year however so at present rates a highly risky proposition.

Betting

Forecast

Raheen House (15/8), Gold Mount (3/1), Weekender (3/1), Sea The Lion (7/1), Kelly's Dino (11/1), Red Verdon (20/1), Island Brave (20/1), Maid Up (40/1)

Verdict

A fascinating clash between 112-rated performers GOLD MOUNT and Weekender with the former preferred after impressing enormously on his return to the UK in a C&D Listed race where he comfortably disposed of Raheen House. Weekender's Ebor second off top-weight was one of the best handicap performances of last season considering that race may well now be the hottest handicap in Europe so he can't be taken lightly. Raheen House failed to hit top gear at four but his three-year-old form was rock solid and perhaps he can build on his reappearance second now.
