Won his two AW novices with something up his sleeve and looked sure to bring up the hat-trick on his handicap debut at Ascot (1m, good) until the winner (who challenged away from him) went into overdrive late on; didn't make his debut until March and this well-bred 4yo could have a lot more ability in him.

Out of sister to triple Group 1 winner Almanzor; unraced until this year but won both AW starts at 1m and looked to have plenty of scope when seeing off two unbeaten rivals at Kempton last month; this stiff test can suit; fascinating contender on turf/handicap debut; yard won this in 2018.

Made it 4-8 over hurdles when reappearing with a win over C&D a fortnight ago (good; Soaring Glory second); the four hurdles in the home straight were omitted which creates a doubt about the form but he was impressive nevertheless; now 2-2 here and may well take a 6lb rise in his stride.

It was a winnable race he landed on at Newcastle in February (2m4f, good; 4lb lower) but he can be excused his subsequent defeat in new blinkers which he's not sported in any of his subsequent Flat runs (close up in the latest over 1m4f in April); lacks a run and, even if on his game, this might be too tough.
