69-10OR: 98CD
8/1

Gained third career success in valuable Chelmsford City Cup over C&D last time getting up right on the line. 3lb rise for winning a heritage handicap lenient so looks sure to make another bold bid here.

Often threatened a big field handicap but flattered to deceive before winning 7f York contest earlier this season. Not disgraced since in more big field events including fifth here latest and course win in the past is a bonus.

C&D win two starts back took him to 3-3 on AW but was subsequently only midfield in Chelmsford City Cup behind War Glory. That his first taste of a big field so could well improve for the experience.

Danced all the dances in a 15-race campaign in which he's won twice. Best efforts make him look well handicapped but poor effort latest and winless AW record lead the search to look elsewhere.

Won four times on AW for Roger Charlton last year including here over 6f. Had a break coming into this, his stable debut but not well enough treated to take a chance on him.

Two from three on AW and after latest of those wins at Kempton he received no sort of run at all at Ascot back on turf. Remains well enough handicapped to be a serious contender here.

Winless this season but had some fiendishly tough tasks so that must be taken into account. Just touched off in International Stakes last year off an 11lb higher mark so is dangerously well handicapped if AW debut piques his interest.

Won first two starts last year including on only previous visit to this course but found life tougher since in handicaps. Trainer won this race a year ago however so back on AW he's not taken lightly.

Won two valuable contests last season but below that level this term in a winless four-year-old campaign. Can argue him well handicapped but others are in better form and his only previous AW effort was only fair.

Appeared to have every chance when narrowly outpointed by Lethal Lunch in a good battle at Kempton last time out. 1lb better off for that neck defeat so little between the pair here and both are rated leading contenders.

Up 5lb for Kempton win last time out, her second in five starts. Deeper waters here but yard has a 25 per cent strike rate on AW this season so not forgotten by any means.

Two wins and a narrow second since joining this yard. Upped 7lb for her 6f Epsom win last time out and up in class but always dangerous to rule out one so progressive.

All of his wins over 6f and at a lower level than this so has plenty to prove overall and he doesn't look particularly well handicapped as shown by fact he hasn't won since January.

Betting

Forecast

Habub (4/1), Piece Of History (9/2), Lethal Lunch (5/1), Arbalet (5/1), War Glory (8/1), Diocles Of Rome (10/1), Turn 'n Twirl (14/1), Zap (14/1), Firmament (16/1), Breathless Times (16/1), Lake Volta (20/1), Sonja Henie (20/1), Busby (25/1)

Verdict

There was very little between LETHAL LUNCH and Diocles Of Rome when they clashed at Kempton recently but the former edged it and looks a progressive individual so he is taken to follow up the win here over his old rival. Chelmsford City Cup winner War Glory has to enter calculations having only been raised 3lb for winning that valuable contest.
  1. Lethal Lunch
  2. Diocles Of Rome
  3. War Glory
