He has finished second in his last two starts with the blinkers fitted. The son of Rafeef is course and distance suited. He is doing well at home and we are hoping that he can shed his maiden tag.

She was disappointing in her comeback run, but a lot did go wrong for her at the start. However, trainer Sean Tarry is happy with the way that she has come out of the run. She does meet a competitive field and we are hoping for a form return.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:113. Needed latest and should strip fitter. Chance.

Breeding: Silvano (GER) – Princess Royal by Captain Al
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He has been a model of consistency and has taken his last run well. He steps up to the 2400m for the first time and jumps from pole position, with Keagan de Melo in the saddle. If seeing out the extra distance on offer, he should be involved in the fight to the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Best MR:104. Finished right behind number 4 in latest and has claims.
