Verdict

Ladies Are Forever returned from a similar-length absence to win this last year but could have been better drawn this time round. TAROOQ makes more appeal given his yard has won two of the last four renewals and he arrives on the back of winning a competitive handicap over track and trip. He beat Hawkeyethenoo on that occasion with Hoof It, Forest Edge and Ballista further behind and also makes more appeal than stablemate Hitchens, well beaten in Dubai last month. Rivellino had Iptisam and Nocturn behind over course and distance a fortnight ago but the latter may well reverse running on better terms today. Rummaging found Forest Edge a couple of lengths too good at Kempton on a recent raid over from Ireland but has even more to find with the selection on that form.
