3/1

Lost his way for Godolphin but made it two wins from three runs at this track when benefiting from been well positioned to beat Goring by 1L a month ago. This a bit tougher but may have more to come.

3/1

Form has improved since switched to AW and building up a really consistent profile. Probably chased too strong a pace when third here on latest but looks sure to play a major role.

15/2

Fine record here and has a 3lb pull for 1L with Silent Attack from their recent meeting. Closely matched as well with Kuwait Currency from the prior run and set to give it another bold go at a track he loves.

7/1

Just the two runs on the AW in his long career and front-runner who has dropped to a low mark and dangerous if allowed an easy lead for yard going well.

12/1

Has excellent record in small fields and three from five on AW. May have been feeling effects of a busy campaign when disappointing when last seen but freshened up since and market should guide as to what is expected.

9/2

Often well backed and everything fell right for him when scoring over C&D but failed to pick up off a steady pace when beaten at Chelmsford since. The harder they go up front the better.

6/1

Got his head in front here last time having finished runner-up on three previous visits to the venue. This a touch harder but tough and consistent sort who can't be easily ruled out.

Betting

Forecast

Silent Attack (3/1), Kuwait Currency (3/1), Almufti (9/2), Corazon Espinado (6/1), Zhui Feng (7/1), Goring (15/2), Spirit Warning (12/1)

Verdict
A strong handicap with plenty arriving in good from and KUWAIT CURRENCY has taken his form to another level since switched to the AW and he can deservedly get back on the winning trail. Plenty of dangers and Goring may prove the biggest threat with Corazon Espinado also warranting plenty of respect.
  1. Kuwait Currency
  2. Goring
