Verdict

Knightly Escapade ended the last campaign with a victory over 1m4f at Goodwood and didn't appear to be enjoying the Polytrack when a beaten favourite on his return at Lingfield. MOHANAD has won over hurdles and 2m on the Flat so has no problems with the trip. He's run well on soft ground so is handed the vote with his low weight and Frankie on board. Arab League, another successful hurdler, isn't badly treated on his return to the level but dual Polytrack winner Rasheed is untested on soft ground as is Monterey, though the latter is by Montjeu and should be suited. Bowdler's Magic is on the same mark as when successful over 1m6f at Yarmouth in September though he's yet another who hasn't done it in the conditions while Taiko and Boss's Destination are very closely matched on their run at Southwell in April and neither looks quite good enough.
