The Robert Hickmott-trained galloper defeated Hauraki in the 2016 Ranvet but faces a tough test on Heavy ground on Saturday.

He is yet to be tested on anything worse than a Soft 5 in Australia but he did win in Heavy going on debut in Ireland.

Trainer John O’Shea will be looking to go one better this year and will be hoping Hartnell can bounce back from a shock 8th placing in the Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) last start.

Chris Waller will saddle up Preferment (barrier 4) and rising star Antonio Guiseppe who finished 2nd to Tavago in last Saturday’s Sky High Stakes (2000m).

He may have needed the run last time and is undefeated in two starts on Heavy tracks.

Our Ivanhowe is another import that is yet to race on anything worse than a Soft 5 in Australia, but it remains to be seen if the likely Heavy track may be too testing for his first-up assignment.

Stratum Star, He’s Our Rokkii and Sofia Rosa are also queries on a Heavy track.
