Recorded 8 wins from first 9 starts for this yard in 2019, including this race. However, he's yet to hit the same heights in 2020 so a leap of faith is required to support him.

Has won 11 races from 1m to 1m 6f on ground varying from good to firm to soft and on the all-weather. Well beaten at 18-1 behind Cape Coast when last of 13 on his latest outing at Newmarket over 1m 6f (soft) last month.

He has won four times from 1m 2f to 2m on good to firm ground and on the all-weather. Beaten 11l behind Reshoun at 15-2 when 10th of 11 on his latest outing at Newbury over 2m (good) last month.

At The Races Verdict

Laafy went down fighting when second in the Old Newton Cup and having scored impressively at Newbury before that, holds leading claims as he returns to further. The form of Calling The Wind's Ascot win is solid and he could play a part following a 7lb rise, while the consistent Mordred is interesting stepping up in trip. Mark Johnston has a fine record in this and his King's Advice was twice a C&D winner last season, including when taking this off a 4lb higher mark. Stablemates Hochfeld and Themaxwecan are both capable operators who can't be ignored, but a chance is taken on PLATITUDE, who is a dual track-and-trip winner and can take advantage of an attractive rating following an encouraging second at Sandown.

Timeform Verdict

A gelding operation prior to his reappearance seems to have sorted LAAFY out, as he improved on his winning Newbury form when runner-up in a well-up-to-scratch Old Newton Cup at Haydock and the step back up in trip may also be in his favour. Themaxwecan and Shailene are feared most.
