Age: 4|  Weight: 9-7| J: David Probert| T: R Hannon| OR:  93

Louganini32
Age: 4|  Weight: 9-7| J: Hollie Doyle| T: R Charlton| OR:  93
Progressive last year, culminating with second in very competitive Rowley Cup at Newmarket (1½m, soft) on final start. Likely unsuited by quicker ground on return and remains one to be interested in.

Nuits St Georges182
Age: 6|  Weight: 9-2| J: Rossa Ryan| T: D Menuisier| OR:  88| D
Fairly useful middle-distance stayer who ended 2020 with a good third in the November Handicap at Doncaster. Races off the same mark so capable of having a say if ready to roll on reappearance.

Creditable in-frame efforts on all 3 outings last yea and another good run when fourth of 16 on Newbury reappearance. Consistent but wide stall could prove tricky.

Group One Power18
Age: 4|  Weight: 9-0| J: S De Sousa| T: A M Balding| OR:  86| D
Excellent fourth in King George V handicap over C&D at last year's Royal meeting. Reappeared with all-the-way Epsom success 18 days ago and he has the potential for better again. Big player.

Aced Itt41
Age: 5|  Weight: 8-10| J: Andrea Atzeni| T: C Poulton| OR:  82| D
A good advert for his new trainer, scoring over this trip at Kempton and Doncaster (good). Form of latter win boosted by second going in next time so ought to remain competitive despite 6 lb rise.

Forecasts

Louganini (3/1) Group One Power (7/2) Labeebb (11/2) Aced It (15/2) Frontispiece (8/1) He's A Keeper (11/1) Nuits St Georges (12/1) Calling The Wind (14/1) Man Of The Night (16/1) It's Good To Laugh (16/1) Speed Company (18/1) Koeman (25/1) Protected Guest (28/1)

Verdict

LOUGANINI may well have been unsuited by a quick surface on his Pontefract reappearance and is probably worth another chance as his 3-y-o form looks solid. Group One Power rates an obvious danger after his recent Epsom success, while Labeebb was a good third on his sole previous visit here and may strip fitter for his AW reappearance.
