SUMMERGHAND (13.50 Newmarket, 6f handicap)

Ran a string of fine races in top handicaps last year, finishing fourth in the Steward’s Cup, the Ayr Gold Cup and the International Handicap at Ascot.

Spent the winter in warmer climes at Meydan and run consistently but just short of his best. A break of 99 days will probably have done him good as his form figures after breaks of 75 days or more reads 121 and he acts well at this track finishing runner-up in competitive handicaps in both starts on the course.

David O’Meara’s runners this week have just started to perform better, so let’s hope Summerghand can continue that trend.

BREATHTAKING LOOK (14.25 Newmarket, 6f Group 3)

Has a lot to find on official figures but can be expected to improve again as a five-year-old as she’s still lightly raced.

Has raced only once at this trip and that came on her debut but has increasingly shaped as if she is a sprinter.

Trainer Stuart Williams has been firing in the winners in the last year and looks a trainer to continue to follow and any market move for this mare would make her of immediate interest.

MOMKIN (15.00 Newmarket, 1m Listed)

This race revolves around last season’s Royal Ascot winner Sangarius who will be a hot favourite to make a winning comeback for Sir Michael Stoute.

But he was beaten on his seasonal return in this grade last year and it could be worth taking him on first time up.

Momkin may also be fitter than most given he travelled to Doha for a really valuable race in February and he looks to be crying out for this return to a mile after a few decent runs at higher levels last summer.

Trainer William Haggas’s form is a concern but he’ll surely turn the tide sooner rather than later.

GHAIYYATH (15.35 Newmarket, 1m 4f Group 1)

The first Group 1 of the season is a brilliant one as champion stayer Stradivarius does what many people have longed for and drops back to this trip for the first time since May 2017.

Connections are surely using this to get a run in him before he attempts to win another Gold Cup, but even if he was fully wound up he may struggle to beat Ghaiyyath.

This runner disappointed in the Arc but that was on the slowest ground he raced on and he wasn’t able to dominate from the front.

The highest-rated runner in the contest, you can expect him to make all and be hard to pass.
