He has run consistently well since winning at Wolverhampton in March and he has his chance again despite creeping up the handicap for those defeats.
I rode her when she finished third on her debut at Ascot and she clearly shaped with a lot of promise there. I am not sure how strong the bare form is – the second disappointed next time – but this Ardad filly obviously ran with a lot of promise, being hampered when starting to make her run and finishing off strongly once she was able to get racing again. It is going to be testing here but she should go very well if handling it and she should have learned a lot from Ascot.
She shaped quite well on her debut at Wolverhampton by the looks of it. She will have to step up to win this but improvement looks likely and this is a winnable race.
