Trainer: Charlie Hills
Jockey: Jim Crowley
He has been twice runner up in this race, in the last two running's, on both occasions by sprinting superstar Blue Point, who has been retired and this looks an ideal chance for him to finally get his head in front in this race.
He is by no means the most reliable, shown in his last run when bombing out of the Abbaye on Arc day and finishing last however when he’s on a going day, he’s very difficult to beat, that was shown when he finally landed his first grade one in August, winning the Nunthrope at York.
There is no doubt he is the best horse in this field by a long way and behind closed doors may well aid his case with the fact there is no Blue Point too and should everything go according to plan, he will be hard to beat.
