Consistent rather than progressive, yet he shaped better than the bare result when third over 1¾m at Chester last time having been left poorly placed. Likely there is more to come over this trip.

Debut novice winner (1m) highly tried thereafter in 2 starts as a 2-y-o. Low-key start to present season but more like it of late, runner up over 12f at Ripon 5 days ago. Longer trip worth exploring.

Fair maiden in France who improved a little to score on yard debut at Leicester (11.8f) in May. Latest Yarmouth second over this trip was a solid display but an even greater test may suit ideally.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

There remains an air of unfinished business about ANNANDALE, who wasn't seen to best effect having his first crack at this sort of trip when third at Chester recently, running on having been left poorly placed. He shades the vote, with stablemate Roseabad possibly the one set to give him most to think about.

Betting Forecast

11/4 Classic Lord (Ger), 3/1 Annandale (Ire), 9/4 Roseabad (Ire), 7/2 Lady Pacifico
