He was disappointing in his last run on the Classic course. His stable companion, Touch Of Fate, looks to be his biggest danger in the race. Gavin Lerena is booked for the ride and he is expected to return to best form.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:74. Is held by number 6 on moderate handicap debut. Lerena takes the ride and can improve.

Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Draw: 6 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1
She produced a good comeback run when returning from a 16-week break. She has galloped since that run and should be fitter for this race. It is a competitive line-up and she is capable of running into the placings.
Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:79. Fair comeback run against stronger. Should strip fitter and can go close.
