Prince Of Johanne lands at least one of these valuable handicaps most years and should go well. Tanseeb went very close to winning in this grade at Sandown last time but stablemate Busatto has something to find with Llanarmon Lad on latest running at Newmarket over 1m2f. Balty Boys and Balducci could make the frame and Fury may bounce back at any time having slipped down the weights. Johnno is upped in class but MUSIC THEORY takes on lesser rivals on his reappearance. Third to the high-class Kingman in the Group 3 Solario Stakes at Sandown in August, he may well be ready to make up for lost time on his belated return.
