confirmed the promise of his reappearance to bag this valuable prize on just his second start for this yard, no doubt better than ever for all he had plenty in his favour, ideally drawn/positioned under one of the best 7-lb claimers around; close up, travelled well, led under 2f out, joined final 100 yds, found extra; he'll presumably be back here for the Buckingham Palace.

Not the first race, and unlikely to be the last either, on the straight course here that was rendered less competitive than it should be by baffling tactics from some of the riders, as despite going stick readings pointing to significantly faster ground towards either rail, plenty of those drawn low sacrificed their chance by opting to tack across to the near side after 2f or so, ending up marooned towards the middle after initially racing in 2 groups, the influence of the draw hard to argue with stalls 26, 27 and 28 filling the first 3 places.

VAFORTINO (IRE) confirmed the promise of his reappearance to bag this valuable prize on just his second start for this yard, no doubt better than ever for all he had plenty in his favour, ideally drawn/positioned under one of the best 7-lb claimers around; close up, travelled well, led under 2f out, joined final 100 yds, found extra; he'll presumably be back here for the Buckingham Palace.

ACCIDENTAL AGENT evidently achieved more than credited with at the time for his decisive reappearance win as he ran a stormer under his big weight, rolling back the years to recapture the sort of form that saw him win the Queen Anne back in 2018, some credit to his trainer given how he lost his way (including refusing to race) in the interim; mid-field, pushed along over 2f out, challenged inside final 1f, ran on.

RIVER NYMPH won this race second time out last year and bounced back to his best after 8 weeks off, though little doubting he was well positioned; patiently ridden, got gap entering final 1f, ran on.

FRESH goes well at this track and continues in good heart, unable to race so close to the rail as the first 3; chased leaders, effort over 2f out, challenged entering final 1f, one paced; he'll have the Wokingham or Buckingham Palace to consider at this track next month and remains on the shortlist for a big handicap.

ROPEY GUEST ran well in this race for the second year in a row, the handicapper giving him a bit more of a chance, doing well under the circumstances here too, caught wide and faring best of those drawn in single figures; chased leaders, travelled well, ridden under 2f out, kept on.

ONE RULER (IRE) strong in the betting for a belated handicap debut, surprisingly so given all his form of late has been over further, shaped well after 3 months off, having not been seen to best effect; held up, pushed along over 2f out, switched towards rail inside final 1f, finished strongly; will be suited by a return to 1m and appeals as a leading contender for the Hunt Cup, even off a lofty rating.

STAR OF ORION (IRE) possibly needed the run after 6 months off, this seemingly a prep for the Buckingham Palace at the Royal meeting; slowly into stride, held up, ridden 3f out, hung left over 1f out, one paced.

ARATUS (IRE) ran better than last time, up against it given his track position, but he continues to hold himself back by being too keen (connections yet to try a hood); held up, not settle fully, pushed along over 2f out, kept on.

HIERONYMUS is probably better judged on his previous form, the tactics he tried to adopt very difficult to pull off in a field of this size; led, headed over 2f out, no extra final 100 yds.

DARK SHIFT has the right profile for a big handicap this year, ending 2021 on the up, and can have a line put through this first start for 7 months, ending up well away from where the action unfolded; held up, headway out wide from 3f out, edged left inside final 1f, effort flattened out.

EAGLEWAY (FR) finished runner-up in this last year, but wasn't in the same form as when sixth in the Lincoln; mid-field, ridden 3f out, plugged on.

THE TURPINATOR (IRE) back down in trip, this likely to suit better than further on turf, though failed to build on the promise of last run; mid-field, ridden over 2f out, weakened.

CHIEFOFCHIEFS had finished hot on the heels of the fourth at Kempton last time and can be forgiven this run given the trouble he ran into; held up, travelled well, headway when badly hampered entering final 1f, kept on, finished with running left.

POPMASTER (IRE) was upped in trip and failed to see things out; close up, ridden over 2f out, weakened over 1f out.

SPIRIT OF LIGHT (IRE) cut little ice on first outing since leaving E. Charpy, albeit from the centre of the track; mid-division, ridden 2f out, weakened inside final 1f.

MAGICAL MORNING might have needed the run after 7 months off, and did win second time out last season, though this didn't contain much promise; mid-field, ridden over 2f out, weakened inside final 1f.

GIOIA CIECA (USA) failed to repeat last effort; close up, pushed along over 2f out, weakened approaching final 1f.

SHOOT TO KILL (IRE) wasn't in the same form as last time; prominent, ridden over 2f out, weakened quickly.

BALDOMERO (IRE) fared no better than last time, and though there was mitigation given his draw/track position, he still needs to show himself as good on turf as all-weather; mid-division, ridden 2f out, weakened inside final 1f.

TADREEB (IRE) was left poorly placed but again ran poorly; held up, made no impression.

ROYAL PLEASURE (IRE) turned out again quickly, wasn't in the same form as last time; chased leaders, lost place over 2f out.

PATH OF THUNDER (IRE) was well held, his positioning a secondary issue; mid-field, ridden over 2f out, found little.
