Timeform on Victoria Tower

#2 Phil's Power - Fairview R5 (13:20 BST)

Phil's Power has found a rich vein of form recently and ran out a comfortable winner when last seen over this course and distance four weeks ago. He has a small rise in the weights to contend with here but remains potentially well treated judged on the pick of hs form, so this looks a good opportunity for him to follow up. Winter Vacation and Turn It Up Harvey head the list of dangers.

#1 Viking Moon - Fairview R7 (14:28 BST)

Viking Moon is clearly thriving at present and kept going well to record his fourth victory in succession at this course last month, ultimately landing the spoils by three quarters of a length. That form comfortably sets the standard in this line-up, so he is very hard to oppose as he attempts to complete the five-timer. Earth Hour and Marmara Sea can battle it out for a share of the minor money.

#4 Victoria Tower - Fairview R8 (15:00 BST)

Victoria Tower is on a losing run stretching back to July 2019, but she has been knocking on the door recently, including when beaten just half a length on the turf here last time. She is fancied to build on that effort to gain a deserved success, leaving Valeriana and Lady Catherine to complete the shortlist in an open contest.
