Trained by Alan Brittain ridden by Cam Hardie down to a mark of 97 now after some below par efforts last summer. Was some promise in his return this year and is seriously well treated if can return to the form of when second in a listed rover course and distance last July. Losing run dates back to 2021 but he’s back on his last successful mark and last month’s keeping-on fifth at Ripon will have blown away the cobwebs

The lightly raced filly Free Wind has been kept in training this season, which is a strong indication of confidence from trainer John Gosden. With Frankie Dettori in the saddle, Free Wind returns after her scintillating victory in the Lancashire Oaks last summer. Despite her absence, she possesses the best form in the field and should easily confirm herself as a high-class filly. Aristia, the runner-up in this event 12 months ago, could emerge as the main threat, with returning duo Sea Silk Road and Toskana Belle also worth considering.

In this handicap race, Brunch and Northern Express, both trained by Dods, stand out as strong contenders. While the vibes and impressive victory of Assessment last time suggest potential group class, the short odds are not justified given the relatively low class 4 handicap he won. Therefore, we lean towards Brunch and Northern Express. The latter was a convincing winner last time and has previously tasted success at York. Brunch, a course and distance winner, is gradually receiving assistance from the handicapper and will appreciate the return to fast ground
