Robert Eddery’s four-year-old has been unfortunate not to get his head in front on the last few occasions but remains off only a 4lb higher rating than his only winning mark in August 2020.

He steps back up to six furlongs here but around that a sharp track, that shouldn’t deter his chances and the in-form Andrea Atzeni is jocked up once again.

The cheekpieces have been added on this occasion and he has the stall from which there were three winners yesterday.

NB: ARTHUR’S VICTORY | 3:25pm John Akehurst Handicap

Despite needing a career-best, Joseph Parr’s filly is going well in the right direction and holds course-and-distance form which could prove decisive in her hat-trick bid here.

She’s up in the weights but Harry Burns’s eases the rise and she’s still relatively unexposed with only six appearances to date.

The others appear to have a few questions to answer, Sir Oliver aside who is normally a consistent type.
