Verdict

JACK DEXTER's fourth in the King's Stand Stakes is the best form on offer in this and Jim Goldie's much-improved sprinter can get back to winning ways. Majestic Myles has won a couple of Listed races but his best form has generally been over 7f, though heavy rain would bring him into the equation. There may not be enough runners for the quirky Mass Rally to find cover while this looks too tough for the likes of Dubawi Sound, Free Zone and Justineo. Hitchens won in the grade at the Curragh last month but there is no reason to believe he can reverse Doncaster running in March with the selection.
