Has run some fine races here and was beaten under 2l in this race in 2017 and 2019; however, his reappearance has been deferred a few times in 2021 and he was better for the run when ninth in this 12 months ago on his return.

Time and again he comes up with massive runs in highly competitive 6f handicaps and did so again to win at York last month (good to soft; has won on good to firm and soft); has course form but made no inroads off similar marks in this race in 2018 or 2020.

Handles all ground; below best in his later 2020 runs and on both starts this year, and his losing run goes back nearly two years, but he ran a stormer when a close third in this race in 2018 on his only C&D start (good to firm) and is by no means discarded off 6lb lower.

Every inch a top sprint handicapper and, while his three valuable 6f prizes in the last two years have come at York (good to firm/soft), he made up a lot of late ground into fourth in this race last June; could bustle them all up with a clear run off 3lb lower.

Course specialist who has yet to underperform here and was beaten about 1l in this race when fourth in 2018 and second off this mark in 2019 (both on good to firm; has won on good to soft); ran well over 5f in April and is primed for another rock-solid run.

Early wins came over 1m2f and 1m but he proved very well suited by a strongly run 6f when winning the Silver Wokingham last June (good; off 4lb lower); subsequently not disgraced in Group and Listed company and after two satisfactory efforts this year he is primed for a good run.

Smart C&D form, finishing close up in the Commonwealth Cup in 2018 and justifying late support in this last year (good; made all); another day in the sun is a possibility off just 1lb higher; market can guide.

Progressive on soft/heavy in 2019, including when winning over 5f here; has carried on the good work since missing 2020, only just losing out against Fresh over C&D (good to soft) before winning at York (5f, soft); acts on good but an already sound chance would improve with a slower surface.

Promising as 2yo but ran only three times last year; coughing when soundly beaten on turf in May and although value for a little more than the narrow winning margin at Hamilton since (6f, good to firm), he needs a sizeable step up under a penalty (he is 2lb badly in); has missed soft-ground races because of the going.

Ran a fair race on his reappearance in the Britannia here last year (1m, soft); suited by the return to a bare 6f when impressive on Kempton AW in March but he didn't do himself justice when seeing too much of the open spaces behind Chil Chil at Newmarket in May (6f, good to firm); has definite potential on this more conventional track.

Useful effort when making the running and only just beaten by Repartee in 6f Listed event at Windsor last June (good to firm); will be suited by the return to this trip after being outstayed over 7f at Epsom recently but he needs a lot to fall into place if he's to play a part in this company.

Close fourth in a less competitive race over C&D in September (good; sole course run) but is a better horse now, partly due to being back on slower ground, making all for last two wins at 6f on soft/good to soft; the more rain the better his chance.

Nothing dramatic about his improvement but typically for this yard he is coming along nicely and has finished strongly in two C&D starts, only just failing in October (soft) but getting the better of the returning Pendleton last month (good to soft); can improve further with an even more strongly run race; highly respected.

Has been a revelation at 6f and 7f for this yard since December and this 3yo's improvement went off the scale when he added Group 3 and 2 successes on turf over C&D (good to firm) and at Haydock (6f, heavy); now has to show he can translate the form back to a handicap as he's 17lb higher than on his latest defeat in one during April.

RACING POST TIP

circle_v2
silk
Fresh
The most fascinating runner of all is King's Lynn if he can approach the dynamic 5f form he has been showing, notably when hampered in the King's Stand on Tuesday. He has a big weights chance but this is such a different type of race that it could be his stablemate Chil Chil who is better equipped, having absolutely slaughtered her rivals in a Newmarket handicap this spring. She may need that fast ground, however, and with the uncertain weather preference is for FRESH, a powerful finisher who is going the right way and looks sure to be suited by a very strongly run race. Pendleton just lost out to him here in April and, with a subsequent 5f win under his belt, he can also go well though it remains to be seen which is his best sprint trip. Chiefofchiefs is also respected along with Tis Marvellous and Gulliver whose form here cannot be disputed. The much-improved Rohaan also has to be considered.
