In depth

Verdict

KINGS ACADEMY is getting steadily closer and found only one too good at Kempton last week. Paul Cole’s colt is less exposed than Her Terms, whose recent efforts have failed to match an earlier second at York. Shabeeh is another expected to have shown more progress than he has of late while Arzaak has returned a losing favourite the last twice. Five Star Frank was three lengths behind the selection last time while Canberra Cliffs failed to threaten in Ireland and has joined Don Cantillon.
