Verdict

KAANOON followed up his victory at Wolverhampton under a penalty at Windsor last month. Roger Varian's colt is expected to improve for this additional furlong and give a good account off an opening figure of 89 now sent handicapping. Valcartier is entitled to perk up for the fitting of first-time blinkers and has dropped to an exploitable mark, while Nonios, beaten by a neck off 5lb higher on the all-weather two starts ago, could also go well.

Verdict

KAANOON is going the right way and can complete the hat-trick on his handicap bow. Valcartier has dropped to a good mark and may emerge as the biggest threat if first-time headgear has the desired effect.
