Verdict

It's been sometime since October's Group 3 winner Highland Knight has competed in a handicap but he won't find life easy under today's burden. George Guru won this in 2012 off a lower mark and beat Luhaif over track and trip last month while True To Form just got the better of Atlantis Crossing here three weeks ago with SPIRITUAL STAR not beaten far in fifth. The latter re-opposes on better terms and given he started last season on a 17lb higher mark, he may well be up to landing this. Stasio is another with a shout and stablemates Party Royal and Mondlicht can also be thrown into the mix, though both of the latter's wins came on the Fibresand at Southwell.
