11/4

C&D winner (Oct 2017); landed the Grp 2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood (7f, good) for the second successive year in July; is penalised accordingly; renews rivalry on slightly better terms with the brave City Of York Stakes winner Shine So Bright.

Short-head winner of this race in 2016 (also placed in 2015), but at the age of nine appears to be nowhere near the force of old; no win since taking the Grp 2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood in August 2017; others readily preferred.

Ready winner of the European Free Handicap (7f, gd/fm), and thereafter acquitted himself well (sixth) in the 2000 Guineas; back from a break when beating Laurens with a brave display of front-running in the Grp 2 City Of York Stakes three-weeks ago.

Down the field in the 2000 Guineas (11th of 19 to Magna Grecia); managed to land a Grp 3 contest at Chantilly (1m, good to soft) in June, yet absent since flopping on his next start behind classy stablemate Too Darn Hot in the Grp 1 Prix Jean Prat.

Forecast

Shine So Bright (10/11), Sir Dancealot (11/4), Turjomaan (3/1), Azano (5/1), Never No More (15/2), Breton Rock (33/1)

Verdict

Shine So Bright did exactly that with a brave display of front-running in the City Of York Stakes on the Knavesmire three-weeks ago (Sir Dancealot fifth). He has endured a relatively light campaign, so should theoretically be a fresh horse as he bids to follow up on Town Moor. However, similar comments apply to the exciting TURJOMAAN who was supplemented for this race at a cost of £9,000. He tanked through a couple of minor 7f novice events on Tapeta at Newcastle, but possibly didn't quite see out the trip (1m) when downed by the hat-trick seeking Duke Of Hazzard in the Group 3 Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes at Goodwood. Owing largely to untapped potential, he gets the nod.
