Seaport (11/4), Blazon (7/2), Glutnforpunishment (9/2), Manjaam (5/1), Author's Dream (7/1), Monjeni (10/1), Fleeting Visit (10/1), Rydan (18/1)

Verdict

Given he rattled off a hat-trick when last seen in this grade in early 2018, Author's Dream should not be totally written off. However, this looks set to be decided recent Kempton rivals including Manjaam who is 4lb better off at the weights with Blazon after finishing behind that rival. He should make a bold bid to reverse that 5-length deficit. Preference though, is for SEAPORT who may have been delivered just a fraction too early before being worn down by Blazon when the pair recently met. He still looks attractively handicapped off this mark and can regain the winning thread.
