Lightning Charlie beat Hakam by a short-head to win this race last year, but both arrive here in poor form and look opposable for now. With question marks over most in this field, How Far looks a likely contender arriving here targeting a hat-trick. He is coming up against a well-handicapped rival, however, in NORMANDY BARRIERE who is now running from two pounds below his last winning mark. That win came over this course and distance, and he has had a wind operation since his last run, so looks a major player if that brings about some improvement from him today.
