Alcalde is an interesting contender here, while Dazzling Light should get involved, but we think TURJUMAN can complete a hat-trick. Willie Musson's four-year-old has won successive handicaps over this trip at Windsor, on both occasions pulling out the necessary needed to finish ahead. That total rise of 7lbs for those successes suggests that he could still be well handicapped and we will take that view in selecting him. Dazzling Light has been tricky to win with for trainer Jim Goldie, who managed to get him off the mark over 1m 6f in May. He is also very effective over today's trip and should remain competitive from this mark. Alcalde was well beaten at Doncaster recently after a 10 month absence. All his racng so far has been on soft ground, but there is no reason he won't act when it is quicker and if that race has blown off the cobwebs then he could have a say. Times Up appeared to have been harshly treated by the assessor when appearing in that same Doncaster contest, but it may be that he just didn't handle the ground and he is not one to dismiss lightly. Sir Boss is perhaps being bossed by the handicapper right now and Turjuman can go in again.
