Twenty one runs since last win in 2019. Creditable fifth of 12 in C&D handicap on reappearance 14 days ago. Interesting off his reduced mark but the outside stall lessens his appeal this time.

Forecasts

Magical Mile (6/1), Diamond Haze (6/1), Dogged (6/1), Irv (6/1), Frog And Toad (13/2), Broctune Red (9/1), Yanifer (9/1), Mutanaaseq (12/1), Esticky End (12/1), Clear Angel (18/1), Shalaa Asker (20/1), Temper Trap (25/1), Thrave (28/1), Krystal Maze (28/1), Bankawi (33/1), Mac Ailey (50/1)

Verdict

In a wide-open finale the suggestion is DIAMOND HAZE who made a sound return to action at Ayr last month and has been runner-up off higher marks on his last 2 visits here. Frog And Toad can have a line put through his latest Wetherby run and rates an obvious danger. Broctune Red, Magical Mile and Yanifer also make the shortlist.
