Worth noting that all his wins have come racing right handed but hasn't won for a while; finished last of seven in a stakes race (over 1m2f here) in January; back from a layoff; looks vulnerable

Verdict

This looks a tight contest on the figures but MAMBO COME TESIO is put forward as the selection. United Council looks a big threat, and Medlers Tart isn't out of it.
