HIGH COMMISSIONER was placed in a handicap last time and has the edge over Rhythmic Intent, third over 1m2f here, on today’s terms. Paul Cole’s charge finished runner-up at the track earlier to Away He Goes and collateral form with the latter gives Adonijah something to find, though Henry Candy’s charge has plenty of scope to improve. Arabist also finished a long way behind the selection here back in May and has his first outing since while Paintball Wizard was tailed off at Nottingham on his debut.
Adonijah 7-2 (9-2) Tracked leaders, effort approaching final furlong, stayed on to go 2nd towards finish, 2nd of 5, 1/2l behind Away He Goes (9-8) at Newmarket 1m 4f stks (3) gf in Jul.
