Swordbearer sets the standard with a handicap rating of 70 but was still beaten five lengths when runner-up over track and trip. Kubeba's latest third came in a plating race but both Frederic and Guesshowmuchiloveu posted better efforts last time and may well figure on their Polytrack debuts. However, HOLIDAY MAGIC went close at Wolverhampton when finding only a couple too good and the Godolphin charge can open his account with any further progress.
