Change of tactics worked a treat when cashing in on a career-low mark at Windsor in June. Possible to excuse both starts since so she remains of interest.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Having dropped a long way in the weights, KING ROBERT served notice that he's ready to cash in when fourth from an unpromising position over C&D 17 days ago, so is well worth siding with. Lorna Cole and Something Lucky also arrive in good nick and are feared most.
