Ukrainian scored by four lengths at Wolverhampton on his handicap debut and has been raised 10lb for his troubles. My Destination failed to land odds of 1/9 at the same track on his reappearance and has since left Godolphin while Dartford seems to be treading water off his current mark though he had Beauchamp Castle behind when third here last time. AWESOME PEARL wasn't beaten far on his return to action and takes another step up in trip today. That could give Sir Mark Prescott's colt the edge on only his fourth start and he gets the nod ahead of Topanga Canyon, who is fancied to reverse recent running with Zain Princess.
