A typically competitive premier handicap in which a case can be made for plenty but it could be worth taking a chance on the potential improvement in THE KING, who ran a cracker at Navan last month and should be able to progress from that effort. Massif Central would likely have been the selection but for his much wider draw (stall 12 rather than the selection in 2), while Lucius Tiberius and Aussie Valentine are in good heart. [Mark Boylan]

Third here to Giuseppe Garibaldi in Listed King George V Cup (1m4f) and never involved over same trip in Royal Ascot handicap before appreciating return to 1m2f to land Curragh handicap nicely 13 days ago; life tougher with 8lb rise but is progressive.

Looked smart colt when winning Gowran maiden and perhaps outclassed but probably more so needed run in Derrinstown Derby Trial on seasonal bow; back on track when just touched off by Downdraft, who was fancied for Royal Ascot handicap when below best, at Navan latest; up 5lb but is progressive sort.

Progressive last year; entitled to have needed first run of year and had to go wide in challenging behind improver Sea The Lion here over 1m4f but finished fine fourth; needs to prove he's as strong over 10f on good-to-firm but surely can be competitive off 90.

Fine third on seasonal bow behind race-fit stablemate Saltonstall, form that race working out well (Maths Prize and Petticoat behind); honest run from front at Curragh (1m) 11 days ago and extra 2f can help here; wide draw not so much but still respected.

1m1f maiden winner here last August; promising Curragh comeback behind Aared and had no luck in running at same venue latest when 5-4fav; shouldn't be judged on that effort and will be interesting if supported again.

Fine Newbury seasonal bow but poor at Chelmsford and down the field in Royal Hunt Cup latest; has only ever raced over 1m so must prove stamina from wide draw; represents stable which nearly landed premier handicap on Irish Champions Weekend with well-backed Machine Learner so check market.

In fine fettle of late, given excellent ride to score over this C&D from subsequent winner Near Kettering and Waterboy (runs here 6.15) before landing Tipperary rated race nicely; up 9lb since penultimate start and draw not great but hard to rule out.

2-27; continues to run well in defeat but usually over shorter than this, notching fine Curragh fourth over 1m (0.5l behind Massif Central) latest and before that was second over 7f; not beaten far though on only 10f start and has decent draw for in-form team.

Was proving a bit of an enigma until everything fell right when winning 1m2f Curragh handicap convincingly two starts ago; raised 6lb and not disgraced in Cork Derby over 2f further 25 days ago although well-beaten; dropped 1lb since and this trip likely better; each-way claims if on a going day.

Can blow hot and cold but capable when in the mood and has been handed box seat draw in race which he has finished been placed in for the past two years, both off 2lb higher than now; hard to have confidence after last two runs but far from dismissed.
