Whisky Baron

J: William Buick
T: William Haggas
Prolific winner in South Africa and he made a very encouraging debut for William Haggas when second in a Group 2 at Goodwood last month. Fascinating contender here switched to handicap company, but he does have to give a lot of weight away.
G1 win in South Africa; 2nd in G2 Celebration Mile latest; switched to h'cp off lofty mark

J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Simon Crisford
Progressive handicapper earlier this term who made all to land the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot in June. Finished second in a Group 3 at Goodwood last time out. Interesting back in handicap company, especially if getting an easy lead.
Won 30-runner Britannia at Royal Ascot off 14lb lower, before second in Goodwood Group 3

J: Richard Kingscote
T: Michael Bell
Has been running well in defeat since returning from a short break. Currently just a pound above his last winning mark, and Richard Kingscote is an interesting jockey booking for this yard.
Close to best when 3rd off this mark at Ascot latest; prob doesn't want ground to dry out

Winner of the Lincoln over this course and distance back in April 2017. He has failed to add to that success in fourteen starts since, but he is now running from four pounds below that last winning mark.
Last win came in 2017 Lincoln here (good to soft); 4lb lower now even from 3lb out the hcp

T: Mark Johnston
Only narrowly held when third in a 1m 2f handicap at this meeting on Thursday. The drop back to a mile looks a logical step on the back of that run, and he is certainly not handicapped out of things off his current mark.
Four wins around 7f-1m this year; back to best when 3rd off this mark over 1m2f here Thurs
