Verdict

The lightly-raced Olympiad may be suited by a first try over 2m while Herostatus could hardly be in better form having beaten the consistent Eagle Rock over C&D last time in first-time cheekpieces. Countrywide Flame, winner of the Triumph Hurdle in March, is potentially well treated on the Flat while Western Prize, 2011 Cesarewitch winner Never Can Tell and course specialist Deauville Flyer also enter calculations along with Downhiller and Cape Express. DAZINSKI won this last year and is better off at the weights than when just behind Herostatus, Eagle Rock, Itlaaq and Deauville Flyer over C&D last month. He's more reliable than stablemate Mystery Star and, with Paul Hanagan doing the steering, could be worth a bet to open his account for the season as Reem Star looks held on the form book.
