The improving Champagne Marengo
is lowly weighted and would make plenty of appeal but for the presence of the Mark Johnston-trained GRENADIER GUARD
in the line-up. The selection faced a tough task giving 6lb to the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Dubai Tradition at Pontefract (1m4f) last month. By Australia and closely related to the top-class stayer Order Of St George he should relish stepping up in trip on handicap debut. He can take this race in his stride before heading onto much loftier assignments in the weeks and months ahead.
