This wide open handicap can go the way of AJJAADD, who has scope for improvement and the form from his last run looks rock solid so off the same mark should run a big race. On that run he holds Gwilym so a bigger threat maybe Bold Tie, who also only found the one too good off this rating on his last effort. Ryan Moore is an eye-catching jockey booking on Doctor Hilary so a big run is expected from him but in a race where loads have chances Ajjaadd is the one open to most improvement.
