Despite the double penalty, expect another sound effort from the so-far unbeaten Sir Johnson. Dome Run and Royal Guardsman also carry penalties for respective wins at Perth and Fontwell, while Merry King and Talkonthestreet both bring winning form into the race from the point-to-point circuit. Special Catch was third on his debut at Newcastle in February but the Reveley yard were more impressed with SWINGING SULTAN's effort at Market Rasen later that month. Despite racing wide, he swept to the front inside the final quarter-mile and it was only right on the line that he was collared by Anychancedave. Sure to know more now, he gets the nod.
