In depth


KING'S CAPER concedes weight all round after a battling Beverley success and is advancing well with his racing. Such progression is a hallmark of a typical Mark Johnston contender and he's taken to come forward again and land back-to-back successes. The three newcomers need a market check but Phantom Bride could emerge as an intriguing threat as she was thought good enough to debut in a decent maiden at the Qatar Goodwood Festival. She will improve for the run and this rates a less demanding test. Swift Arion was beaten a long way on debut and it will be interesting to see if he improves for a subsequent gelding operation.
