was 4 lb 'well in' under a 3-lb penalty for Ripon but progressed again to complete the hat-trick, on a sharp upward curve now his stamina is being drawn out, a gelding operation in the winter seemingly having had a positive effect too, and was value more than the winning margin here; mid-field, briefly caught behind weakening rival and forced to delay challenge on home turn, angled towards outer over 1f out, finished with a flourish to peg back a couple who enjoyed first run final 50 yds; a progressive profile goes a long way in this type of event, so one to keep on side.

has been campaigned sparingly in the past 18 months, presumably to help protect his handicap mark, but that hasn't stopped him building up a good record in prestigious handicaps - in both codes - and ran another cracker here; mid-field, travelled as well as anything, headway around 3f out, kept on well, getting to Zafayan final 50 yds as both were overhauled by winner; was stronger in the finish than when filling the same spot in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket last autumn, the sharper track helping in that regard, whilst strong-travelling style suggests he may do even better back at 2m; should continue to give a good account.

in a change of headgear, progressed again tackling his first big-field handicap and continues to defy his pedigree, stamina once again clearly not an issue; close up, shaken up and every chance 3f out, stayed on well to lead 1f out, headed final 50 yds; a straightforward ride who is still unexposed, he'll remain of interest, either in this sphere or back over hurdles.

didn't quite deliver on the promise of his Ripon run, getting no closer to Trip To Paris despite a better run through and a pull at the weights, but still did enough to cement the good start he's made for his new yard; handy, raced freely, still going well when briefly forced to wait for a gap under 2f out, not quicken once in the clear; better placed than most the way this went which shows his vulnerability to anything on the up, but he's a consistent sort who should continue to pay his way in top-end handicaps this year.

enjoyed a good time of things on the all-weather this winter and, after a short break, carried that through into this more competitive environment, the late work he put in after things didn't go to script catching the eye; dwelt, raced in mid-field, still travelling well when caught behind rivals over 2f out, finished as well as anything once in the clear, left poorly placed; strike rate is only ordinary, but he's unexposed as a stayer and did enough to suggest he can make a bigger impact in this sort of race over the summer.

ran right up to his best making turf debut, but has done his improving in calmer waters this winter and is probably just averagely weighted in the context of these competitive, big-field events; close up, went upsides early final circuit, led soon after, driven 3f out, headed over 1f out, no extra, his finish probably more a case of him being unable to go with better-handicapped horses than struggling with the longer trip.

has been done no favours by the handicapper, up 6 lb for winning a race when things worked out perfectly, and ran about as well as could be expected, especially as his stamina seemed stretched by the combination of longer trip and having to work harder to lead this deeper field; made running, headed early final circuit, stayed handy, driven 4f out, responded well initially, still in with a shout over 1f out, before fading; percentage call is that he'll remain vulnerable off this revised mark, even in less-competitive scenarios.

was again below the form she showed at Musselburgh, not ideally placed the way this went, always nearer last than first, but basically just travelling like one who has gone off the boil, one of the first off the bridle; is yet to win off a mark in the 90s either.

has presumably had his problems since a truncated 2014 campaign, off 11 months prior to this, and made a relatively low-key reappearance, acknowledging this was a tough race in which to return; held up, driven 3f out, never landed a blow, the step back up in trip just a side issue.

has produced most of her best efforts picking up the pieces in small-field pattern races, that form fairly flimsy in this context, and duly struggled from a mark that looks harsh, the longer trip probably not helping either; in touch, struggling to hold her pitch 3f out, weakened from 2f out; caught between 2 stools at present and likely to prove hard to place as a result.

with recent pipeopener under his belt, shaped better than the distance beaten, but without doing enough to suggest a win off this sort of mark is within his grasp, 10 lb higher than when taking the Northumberland Plate last year; ridden more prominently than usual to make use of good draw, lit up as a result, still in contention 3f out before earlier exertions told.

ran no sort of race, the tardy start putting him on the back foot but insufficient excuse given how far he was beaten, never sighted; down to a potentially workable mark, but needs to show he's firing again before becoming of more than passing interest in this type of contest.

productive winter campaign culminated with victory in AW Champions' Day Marathon but ran poorly back on turf, and though it's too early to pigeon-hole him as surface dependent, especially as stamina limitations may have been a contributing factor here, it's certainly a question mark after this; mid-field, ridden around 3f out, weakened.

All 17 ran.

Winning Owner: La Grange Partnership

Time: 4m 12.87s Closing Sectional: (3.00f): 38.67s (105.1%)

A prestigious and valuable handicap prize and this rates as one of the more satisfactory renewals in recent years, acknowledging the problems with being dropped out and/or poorly drawn were still apparent, the cream rising to the top, the first 3 all boasting progressive profiles and worth keeping on side in similar events; further back the one who did best against the aforementioned biases was Gabrial's Star, who caught the eye with a strong finish.

TRIP TO PARIS (IRE) was 4 lb 'well in' under a 3-lb penalty for Ripon but progressed again to complete the hat-trick, on a sharp upward curve now his stamina is being drawn out, a gelding operation in the winter seemingly having had a positive effect too, and was value more than the winning margin here; mid-field, briefly caught behind weakening rival and forced to delay challenge on home turn, angled towards outer over 1f out, finished with a flourish to peg back a couple who enjoyed first run final 50 yds; a progressive profile goes a long way in this type of event, so one to keep on side.
