Verdict

TIMES UP generally needs a run to put him straight so it was no real surprise to see him finish well beaten behind Cracking Lass at Doncaster last month. John Dunlop's gelding, who has the beating of Simenon on last year's form, left that run well behind when scoring at Newmarket next time and, though yet to win over this longer trip, can reverse Town Moor running with Richard Fahey's mare here. His stable has won this twice in the last five years. Theology never reached the leaders when finishing last of six finishers in the Sagaro Stakes at Ascot on his reappearance but is better than that and holds stronger claims than recent Aintree winner Oasis Knight.
