Took this event 12 months ago but he's yet to fire in three runs this term, only eighth in 1895 Duke of York Stakes at York (6f) 38 days ago. Needs a big step forward.

Has taken his form up a notch for his new yard, and he made it 2-3 in 21-runner handicap at York (6f) 27 days ago. Still low mileage, so he's well in the mix under a 5 lb penalty.

Vastly improved of late since dropped back to 6f, impressively landing handicaps at Newbury and Haydock when displaying a good turn of foot to lead close home on each occasion. He's capable of a fair bit better still, and rates a big player under a 5 lb penalty.

Verdict

Marco Botti's SILVER SAMURAI has proved a revelation since dropped back to 6f and is fancied to complete a quick hat-trick under a 5 lb penalty after showing an excellent turn of foot to score at Haydock and Newbury. Fresh came home runner-up in this event 12 months ago and seems sure to have another big say on the back of his good Victoria Cup fourth here. Blackrod, Summerghand and Bielsa are all firmly in the picture too in what promises to be a typically competitive Wokingham.
