AZRAEL's form is stacking up well and he can win again. Alan McCabe's colt has had his Ascot and Leicester runs massively franked and his mark of 83 may underestimate the further improvement to come. Ardour is on a roll but he looks to have been well-placed previously and this looks much tougher, and a bigger danger might be Mayhab after his fine effort behind Zebedee here last month. Azameera sprang a surprise at Salisbury on debut having been described as slow to develop mentally by her trainer, Song Of The Siren looked very professional at Folkestone but this looks tougher, whilst Right Said Fred and One Lucky Lady look potential improvers now entering handicaps.
