A chance is taken on the former Mick Channon-trained gelding who bounced right back to form at Musselburgh when last seen to register his first success since he defeated Kalashnikov in the Kingmaker at Sandown in February 2019.

The 10-year-old has only ran once at Newbury, finishing third in a handicap off a 16lb higher mark, so could be up to defying his current rating of 134 if in the same vein of form.

Lorcan Williams, who partnered him in Scotland, retains the partnership in Berkshire and the drop back in trip should not prove much of an issue.

Senior Citizen looks the value each-way play for the in-form Alan King yard, while former track winner Paint The Dream has to be taken seriously on the merit of his course history.
