He was drawn in stall one last year when nearly pulling off the big one in the Stewards Cup and just got worn down close home by Summerghand in the shadow of the post. KIMIFIVE races of a 1lb lower mark now and has been running consistently without winning this season. He likes this track and, in an open contest, has an each-way chance.
The top weight First Folio has an obvious chance having just missed the Stewards Cup and now drops into this consolation race. He’s only a three-year-old and could be very much on the up after two wins from three this season.
SYMPHONY PERFECT ran a blinder in the Weatherby Super Sprint at Newbury going down narrowly to a smart stablemate in Gubbass, who was placed here earlier in the week. The ground is not a worry and Richard Hannon’s team continue in good form. The danger may come from the top-weight Lady Ayresome, who has won a couple of races at Beverley and gets the assistance of a 7lbs claimer now.
Better known as a jumps trainer, Alan King has been the man of the moment on the Flat this week and last year’s November Handicap winner ON TO VICTORY can emulate Trueshan and Asymmetric by joining them in the winners enclosure.
He has been running consistently over jumps this winter and showed his well-being back on the level with a good second to Hukum at this venue on slow ground in May. He actually beat one of the market rivals Nuits St Georges in the November Handicap.
Ryan Moore gave this daughter of Deep Impact a very good tactical ride at this track last time when making all the running and dictating the contest from the front. PORTFOLIO might not have it all his own way this time, but Richard Kingscote is a very good judge of pace. This filly is a very sporting price.
Chiasma, ridden by Frankie Dettori, is a full sister to the mighty Frankel and won nicely at Kempton last time. Frankie has not got lots of other rides, so this looks like one of his best. Goodwood and Doncaster are also on, but Dettori is staying at HQ.
Ed Walker’s four-year-old GREAT AMBASSADOR may not be done improving as he has run in some good races recently, but has just been falling a little short. He has been running well this season, including in a competitive handicap behind another big-race rival Chill Chill at Newmarket.
He must have every chance in this dash on the downs now that he’s ridden by William Buick. Summerghand can’t be dismissed back at this level either after last year’s win, while Michael Dods’ is another who arrives in very good form.
