Oasis Fantasy was placed for the sixth time in succession when third at Goodwood while Rapier finished last of six stepped up to today’s trip at Kempton, though Ryan Moore takes over the reins. Groveman ran a shocker bidding for a hat-trick at Goodwood and is better than that but King's Proctor has lost his form completely. AZARI posted a better effort over 1m6f on his return from a lay-off. He was winning over 1m4f off a 10lb higher mark last year and Tom Dascombe’s charge gets a speculative vote to come good again in a tricky contest.
