MIXOLOGIST was well beaten into third at Kempton in March, exactly a month since landing a maiden at Southwell. He should make progress this campaign and this can provide the platform. Macarthur, who is now on his fifth trainer, is perfectly capable of getting involved at his best though it's a very long time since he won won the Hardwicke Stakes for Aidan O'Brien and Johnny Murtagh. Gran Torino looks as though he needs more testing conditions but Gary and Jamie Moore are riding high at present so Agincourt Reef is one to keep an eye on. Stay In My Heart had 20 starts in Ireland without winning and Superciliary, who has been busy on the Flat and over hurdles, is 10lb higher than his only success over timber.
