Mark Johnston’s gelding has been stepped up in class here, but he finished second in a Class 2 handicap at Glorious Goodwood last year at a mark of 92.

He is 2lb higher here, but the five-year-old has seen three of his wins in handicap come on turf and will be fresh after a two and a half month break.

The son of Galileo has proven his staying ability over the last few seasons and he could well produce a big effort on his return to action.

At 16/1, Rochester House could well prove to be great each-way value for this contest at Newbury.
