Andrew Balding’s hope has 5lb extra to carry today after scorching away from his rivals on the Knavesmire. That looks fair enough as he looked more like a group horse than a handicapper.
He was sporting first-time blinkers so there is a slight concern about them having the same effect again but it was a huge effort.
Adamant could be a typical Sir Michael Stoute horse that gets better with age.
