Sir Michael Stoute has won this three times in recent years and though three-year-olds don't have the best of records EAGLES PEAK can put matters right. A superbly bred son of Galileo out of a Group 2 winner, he showed battling qualities to beat subsequent winner Thimaar on his debut in what looked a very hot Newmarket maiden last month and he could prove a blot on the handicap. Barren Brook has suddenly found his form and a 3lb rise for landing a tough Doncaster handicap looks lenient and he should go well under Kieren Fallon who deserts the increasingly temperamental Naqshabban, who refused to enter the stalls again last time. Arlequin is well regarded which is hardly surprising given his fine victory at Goodwood where the consistent Our Joe Mac was third and he's won over this C&D in the past. All of Ithoughtitwasover's four runs to date have been over 1m4f and he's won twice. He was probably a little unfortunate not to beat Parlour Games in the Shergar Cup Classic at Ascot and he looks well treated.
