Bangkok wasn't disgraced in good company as a juvenile and opened his account in some style at Doncaster's Lincoln fixture last month. He strode clear of Telecaster and the runner-up bolted up by nine lengths next time at Windsor.
The same combination should go close in the opening bet365 Esher Cup with FOX LEICESTER (1.50). He mopped up a novice stakes at 1-3 following a running-on third over seven furlongs at Ascot last September. This mile should be ideal.
There is some rain forecast and that wouldn't inconvenience PRIVATE SECRETARY (5.05). John Gosden's three-year-old opened his account at Redcar, edging out his William Haggas-trained market rival.
At Perth, Gordon Elliott and Richard Johnson team up with COUNT SIMON (2.40). The Irish raider had three fairly quick runs in March, the best probably coming at Leopardstown when third to the 146-rated Tombstone. Count Simon races off 133, so is potentially quite well treated.
The Highland National is a tough one to call but top weight GOLD OPERA (4.15) should go close. Keith Dalgleish's ten-year-old travelled supremely well in a better race at Aintree before wandering around a bit under pressure and finishing fourth to Kildisart. A slipping saddle two out didn't help and Craig Nicol did well to stay aboard.
Oliver Sherwood doesn't send many this far north and GOT AWAY (3.15) must go close in the Mares' Chase following her neck second to Mister Whitaker at Cheltenham nine days ago.
She cantered home at Leicester in February, so going right-handed isn't a problem. More of a concern is this three-mile trip as she does most of her racing over 2m 4f, but Got Away hasn't been stopping at the finish.
