Verdict

KACHY hasn’t raced since finishing third in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee at Ascot in June but he still has leading claims on these terms, despite conceding plenty of weight, and goes well fresh having landed a Listed event at the All-Weather Sprint Championships over course and distance last year. Both last year’s runner-up Merhoob and the disappointing Tinto finished behind third-placed Lady Dancealot in Listed company here a fortnight ago while the remainder have been handicapping and are closely matched at the weights. Total Commitment finished just ahead of Lady Dancealot here last month while Harry's Bar won at Kempton in December and Mohareb won over 7f at the track in the same month.
