Hiking has failed to take advantage of two winnable opportunities in handicaps so we will side with VOYAGEOFDISCOVERY on this occasion. Clive Cox's string are operating at the peak of their powers and the gelding won at Windsor with something in hand. It's not too often that Godolphin send their debutants to Thirsk and Fajry dismissed his rivals with contempt at the North Yorkshire track. The handicapper has allocated a rating of 84 on his first foray into a handicap and he'll need to be seriously useful in order to defy it. Sol Hunter and Khee Society have had plenty of chances against inferior opposition while Tigers In Red makes a belated reappearance having disappointed at Kempton Park. Malachim Mist had some smart juvenile form to his name but he hasn't shown much in the way of sparkle this season.
