2.00 Doncaster – Top Rank – WON 11/2

Does have to concede a 5lb penalty here, but could easily progress to a higher level, as he’s such a big horse and still only run 7 times. A winner on 5 occasions, he’s improved with every run so far, so no reason why there isn’t more to come and reports suggest he’s in great form at home. He does have a little to find with Montatham on York form last season, but Top Rank had a bad draw that day, and subsequently improved when winning at Group 3 level at Haydock. His final run saw him last of 6 at Newmarket behind Kameko, but he ran better than that final position suggests, just fading in the closing stages when seemingly not handling the dip. He won fresh before, and looks to hold very strong claims despite giving his rivals weight.
