It's hard to find one of these that ticks all the boxes. STORM KING could be more consistent but his latest fifth behind much higher rated horses in Listed company at York is the best recent form on offer and he gets the tentative vote. True To Form has gone well fresh before and can race off a lower mark back on Turf. But he's yet to score on this surface while Kakatosi has done all of his winning over shorter and Classic Colori's Musselburgh victory came in lesser company. Bank On Me has yet to land a handicap but has gone close to doing so on more than one occasion and looks best of the rest.
