Formscan - Although HIGHLAND AVENUE hasn't scored since April 2021, he made a creditable return to action when finishing in third behind stablemate Adayar in the Gordon Richards Stakes at Newmarket last month. He lost second towards the finish on that occasion and can benefit from dropping back in trip. He holds a speculative entry for the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown in July and must be of significant interest, but the unexposed Kolsai boasts an appealing pedigree and is respected for powerful connections. Regal Reality finished one place behind the selection last time out and also warrants a market check.
