In reasonable form since returning to action in November but hasn't won since June 2018; dropped to a career lowest handicap mark as a result yet still retains ability. The step up to a mile might bring new opportunities. Betting can guide.

Well backed on several occasions last season on turf but only managed a solitary win (extended mile, good to soft, at Beverley in August). Disappointed since and still 3lb higher; but it's possible the recent switch to a new yard will perk him up.

Won a very modest handicap over 7f at Lingfield last August but lightly raced since. Needs a big step forward from last month's return to action at Lingfield and also has a bit to prove now tried over 1m for the first time.

Won after a break as a juvenile but tended to need a couple of runs to put him straight in recent times. On the plus side; he's more experienced over this trip than a number of the rest and is very well handicapped. Dangerous to underestimate.

Breezed through a test over C&D on his polytrack debut last month and has to merit an interest from just a 4lb higher mark; this is a slightly stronger race but his proven stamina makes the gelding a serious player in this company.

Won the 2019 renewal and counts 14 other wins alongside 20 placed efforts from his 95 starts; owes little in terms of payback but needs to better two poor efforts from the back-end of 2019; jockey bookings suggest Haddaf is the yard's first choice.

The trip and surface are not an issue but behind Lunar Deity in this race last year and was below par in a light campaign afterwards; been off since June and might just need the outing.

Forecast

Coviglia (2/1), Haddaf (5/2), One To Go (4/1), Casina Di Notte (5/1), Channel Packet (8/1), Kadrizzi (8/1), Fancy Flyer (14/1), Lunar Deity (25/1)

Verdict

An interesting one as Stuart Williams adds spice to the conundrum with Haddaf, who is on a handy mark for his debut run over a mile, making more appeal than his stablemate (and last year's winner of this race) Lunar Deity; and the top weight is certainly one to take seriously if he's supported in the betting ring. However, COVIGLIA has proven stamina over the trip and, given the manner of last month's win over C&D, a 4lb higher mark hardly looks insurmountable. Kadrizz is very well handicapped and is another to monitor closely in the betting. Casina Di Notte ran well on his only previous attempt over C&D and also merits consideration.
