Gurkha Friend returned to form when making all over one-mile one-furlong here last month. The handicapper has raised him eight pounds in the weights though, and his front-running style may set this up for DAWAALEEB today. Les Eyre’s gelding has improved in each of his four starts for these connections and pulled clear to win in stylish fashion at Beverley last month, he arrives here still looking unexposed, and can land this before tackling some valuable turf handicaps later this season.
