Best on good to soft/soft; has been as steady as they come in valuable 7f and 1m handicaps here in earlier years but his recent record is more shaky and he is still only 1lb lower than his latest win here two years ago; first-time headgear.

Seen more often on AW than turf but he showed what could be done on grass when beating big fields over 7f at York and here in the second half of 2020 (both on good); just 3lb higher than the latter win and this type of race suits him well but has not been at his best this year.

Effective at 6f-1m on turf but has been sparingly raced in recent times and his two most recent wins have come over 6f, at Newmarket in 2019 (good) and on the AW when last seen in December; now has to show that a thorough test at 7f is what's wanted on return from a break.

Best 7f form when held up in strongly run races and he might have got there too soon when sixth in a similarly competitive C&D handicap in late 2019 (soft; has won on firm); missed 2020 but was in good form at Meydan early this year, winning a 1m handicap before running with credit in Group races; can go well despite big weight.

Suited by 7f and handicapper is giving him a chance; however he might have run better in a lower grade back at Goodwood recently as it's a track where he has achieved two of his better results (good/soft).

Beaten only once in seven AW starts at 1m and 7f; well held in a 6f Listed race back on turf in April but a persevering fifth in a valuable 7f Cork handicap since (good; has form on soft) suggests he can improve on grass.

Started 2021 on a 13lb lower mark than reappearance last June and has made hay, winning his last three at about 7f on ground ranging from heavy to good; again won with something in hand at Chester recently and the rise in class on an unfamiliar track is perhaps more of a concern than a further 6lb rise; he is still one of the more interesting ones.

His 3yo season was slow to get off the ground but he took a step back in the right direction when runner-up to Tomfre at Leicester in October (7f, heavy) and another one when a cosy winner at Haydock in April (7f, good to firm); lightly raced and the best may not have been seen of him yet.

Can lead; looked good when making all from subsequent improver at Newbury last June (1m, good to soft); hasn't raised his game in Listed/Group events since but dropping him to 7f on handicap debut is an interesting move; yard won this in 2012 (the race wasn't run in 2015-2019).

Has generally kept pace with the assessor since handicapping and his fourth in the Lincoln and subsequent second in a good Newbury handicap were two solid efforts at 1m (good; has won on good to soft); he does race freely though so a strongly run race back at 7f could see even better from him.

Went handicapping off a low mark and took full advantage with four 7f wins on turf and AW in second half of 2020; has come on again this season, impressive from the front at Haydock (7f, soft) and no disgrace when nailed late on by Karibana on AW three days later; never better but she is another 4lb higher here.

All races on good to soft or slower; won his first three, finding the job easy against fellow 3yos when upped to 7f here on reappearance (good to soft), but was left with a lot of ground to make up when never-nearer third to a smart subsequent winner at Goodwood next time (soft); 12lb higher than his C&D win but could be ahead of his mark still; tongue-tie on.

RACING POST TIP

Danyah
Aldaary has to be respected after a highly impressive win against his own age group here in May and Lord Campari is also right up the list at this more realistic level. The more seasoned DANYAH looks interesting back at 7f though as a strongly run race at this trip could be ideal after two solid form efforts in good 1m handicaps. There are some slight queries about the tried and trusted course specialists Blue Mist, Raising Sand and Documenting but in-form Boardman, Persuasion and Karibana have big runs in them.
