Kitbag has finished a close second in his last two races back in the spring which was on the AW. Unexposed on turf and had been running in deeper races than today and with the jockey’s claim he’s 18lb better off so he looks very well handicapped. Still very unexposed an open to plenty of improvement and the break may have him fresh and ready to go for this one today.
9/2 - 1.5 points EW
Regheeb was a good winner here on debut on testing ground and was impressive again on latest start at Lingfield in a decent class 3 novice. Looks to have a bit of class about him and on handicap debut here looks a key player considering the form when 7l behind the Arc winner Ace Impact on 2nd start.
Step Back In Time
15/2 - 1.5 points EW 6 places
18/1 - 1.5 points EW 6 places
More than happy to take two here given the nature of the race and the 6 places available. Step Back In Time has ran well in all of his last 3 efforts winning here over 5f on yielding then finishing 4th at Leopardstown over 6f, conditions right up his street here and with a clear run goes close. Stanhope was extremely unlucky last time out when squeezed then lost numerous places before rallying again to finish 6th, looks set to go close today at a venue he loves with ideal conditions.
