"I rode him at Lingfield, the identical monitor and distance, and whereas we had a pleasant draw, we acquired squeezed out and the race was a nightmare and he nonetheless managed to end second.

"He went on to win at Wolverhampton after that and was second in the Winter Derby Trial.

"The solely factor is it isn’t a really perfect monitor for him. If it was at Newcastle it will go well with him higher. I don't assume he's in love with coming down the hill, but when he will get a clear run he's able to an enormous run."

Hugo Palmer's Star Archer and Jeremy Noseda's Abe Lincoln are two extra fascinating contenders in the ten-runner subject.
