Didn't show much for David Elsworth but bred to be much better at this longer trip and this represents a drop in grade. Low mileage and may well be more to come having changed hands for 12,000 gns since last seen.

Dual winner over shorter as a juvenile when trained in Belgium but below that form since including two runs over hurdles for current connections. Only of interest if money speaks in his favour.

Showed little in three runs for Ger Lyons and it's been a similar tale since joining this yard with slow starts holding him back. Relatively low mileage though and yard is having a good run so could be capable of better.

Not knocked about when returning from a short break last time and with Kirby taking over better can be expected, especially as he won on his last run in this low grade.

Sole win was at Wetherby last May but has been held back by slow starts of late which have been getting worse since joining this yard.

Gained his three career wins in early 2018 but hard to predict since though bit better in first-time cheekpieces on latest (retained here) and claims if able to build on that.

On the downgrade since most recent win in 2018 but better when third to a subsequent winner when last seen here in early December and if able to build on that effort he should be competitive here.

Nine race maiden who hasn't been near to reaching the frame so far at shorter and needs this step up in trip to bring about plenty of improvement.

Nine course wins and has reached the frame in 24 out of 47 visits here but losing run goes back to June 2018 and the veteran hasn't looked like adding to his record since.

Tried front-running when stepped up to 1m4f in a seller here last time but easily brushed aside when passed and not hard to look elsewhere again now.

No sign of ability in three starts. Now sports cheekpieces for handicap debut but is 10lb out of the weights and needs then to bring about huge improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Arabian King (5/2), Famous Dynasty (11/4), Presence Process (9/2), Sauron's Eye (9/2), Attain (7/1), Born To Frolic (10/1), Hard Toffee (12/1), Tiffindell (25/1), Janus (33/1), Birthday Girl (50/1), Supreme Dream (66/1), Fitzy (66/1)

Verdict

ARABIAN KING failed to live up to expectations for his previous yard but he may be worth chancing on this drop in class with a tongue-tie now tried. Famous Dynasty showed more than he has for a while on latest and a repeat makes him a big threat while Hard Toffee merits interest with Adam Kirby back on board.
