Verdict

KING’S ADVICE has won all three starts since joining Mark Johnston in February. The style of his latest success at Wolverhampton suggests a 7lb rise may not be enough to anchor him in this and a four-timer beckons. Stonific made a winning reappearance at Doncaster and should go well again while Desert Ruler was successful at Newcastle before failing to figure in this higher grade at Leicester. Both Benadalid and Multellie recorded doubles last year with the former preferred at this level having won a Class 2 race at Ripon last summer while the unexposed Celestial Force should be winning a handicap this season having landed a novices' race over track and trip last year.
