Formscan - The ultra-consistent QUINAULT arrives here on the back of a willing success over C&D last time and a repeat of that effort would see him go close once again. Stuart Williams' charge beat the reopposing Popmaster (second) by a neck on that occasion and that rival has subsequently franked the form by going one better over 7f at Newbury. Off 4lb better terms, the son of Oasis Dream can confirm that form, while the hat-trick seeking Baradar also appears likely to offer another bold bid.
