Probably not quite as competitive as the numbers suggest and the relatively exposed TIMES UP was able to get the better of the well backed pair Sharayeen and Life And Soul. Times Up had needed his first run last year and stepped up considerably on his reappearance at Doncaster. He has a fine record at this track and at the July course and handles quick ground well but he is versatile having won the November handicap on his final start of last season on a softer surface. He travelled well in behind a steady pace, moved smoothly through to challenge and narrowly managed to get the better of Sharayeen; he was a model of consistency last season and should continue to be a factor in the top handicaps. The runner-up had been a shade free in the first part of the race and that may have made the difference between victory and defeat; he's only won twice in 11 starts now but looks to be progressing although he'll need to in order to keep pace with the handicapper. The market suggested that Life And Soul was straight enough for this reappearance and he ran his race on ground that was probably a little firmer than ideal having raced a shade keenly; he looks capable of landing a similar prize this season. He was quite closely matched with The Fonz on last season's form and Sir Michael Stoute's charge made a pleasing reappearance having been rather fresh early on; like the first three, he should continue to have his say in similar contests. Nanton travelled well for much of the contest and improved vastly on his return; he is remarkably consistent and another pound or two off his back wouldn't hurt. Coin Of The Realm also shaped well and is likely to turn up for the mile and a half handicap at the Derby meeting for the race in which he has won and finished fourth in the last two years. Mr Willis was another to take the eye for his new yard and he has a bit of wriggle room with his turf mark after just his fifth start on grass but this trip did stretch him. There was less encouragement to be taken from the performances of Mark Johnston's trio and Chiberta King who may have needed the run although those to the fore of the pace were running into a headwind. Sweet Origin was facing much stiffer company than he'd met on the all-weather and finished well beaten having travelled well enough in behind the pace but may have done a little too much early on.
