Won a couple of races in South Africa as a juvenile but was out of his depth in the Doncaster Mile on his British/stable debut and well held in three subsequent starts. Handicap sliding but still looks plentiful.

Made the most of an ease in the weights to score for the first time for this yard at Newmarket penultimately over 1m. Midfield since over the same trip at Ascot suggesting handicapper's 6lb penalty may have done the job.

Already produced three wins this season (all on the AW; Tapeta at up to 7f); had held his form well returned to turf over 6f before not staying 1m at Newmarket latest. Back to this trip he can fare better.

Front-runner gained ninth career win when landing an 18-runner 7f Newbury handicap penultimately. Upped 6lb latest he was disappointing at Newmarket but is always a threat when given an easy lead.

Winner over this trip at Carlisle not been the most consistent since although perhaps his last of nine at York latest can be blamed on soft ground. Not now on the face of it well handicapped but that rarely stops runners from this yard.

Gained second career win with an all out success over this trip at Leicester last time out. Upped 3lb and in a better race now but still lightly raced and looks an improving sort.

Betting

Forecast

Golden Force (7/4), Martineo (5/2), I Am A Dreamer (5/1), Swift Approval (6/1), Mountain Rescue (10/1), Toy Theatre (10/1), Givinitsum (11/1)

Verdict

Not too many of these arrive in form compelling to their cases so it looks a good opportunity for Clive Cox's GOLDEN FORCE to follow up his Leicester win last time out. Swift Approval is always a threat when getting his own way upfront and he may prove the biggest danger although I Am A Dreamer is also the sort who can spring forward when least expected.
