Has won previously at this course and has maintained his consistent level of form; nothing wrong with his last effort, runner-up, beaten just under 2l, over C&D 12 days ago; should not be far away

Respectable effort (beaten just under 3l) 19 days ago here over 1m1f; form franked by a next-time-out winner; has not been in the winners' enclosure for a while now but potentially well treated; now off a higher mark; capable of making an impact if building on most recent effort

Verdict

Timeforthat will not be without market support but SEQUOIA should find this very winnable. Tinder Dry should be in the shake-up, and this trip could be a bit far for Admiralty Arch.
