The presence of the useful hurdler Beyond The Clouds
serves to muddy the waters, but equally he'll need to be fit and raring to go in order to make a winning start on the Flat and defy a welter burden of 10st. Canoodling
ran as well as could be expected when finishing fifth in a very competitive maiden at Ripon a fortnight ago, and with that form already franked by Grenadier Guard she merits a positive mention. However, the form pick is the Hugo Palmer-trained IRONCLAD
. This Dubawi colt is improving race by race, and it's perfectly relevant to highlight that Jack Mitchell (sole mount) travels across from Thirsk in order to take the ride.
