The son of Oratorio, a three-time Listed winner in the past, was last seen finishing a close sixth in the Champions' Sprint at Ascot.

That was over six furlongs and he is now stepping up to a mile for the first time since he finished fifth in the 2012 Lincoln Handicap.

In fact, he won his maiden over tonight's course and distance back in May 2010. The runner-up that day was subsequent Group 2 winner Afsare whilst multiple Group winner and John Smith's Cup hero Green Destiny was also down the field.

He has trained well since his latest run and he should put up a bold showing in what looks a competitive renewal of the race.

Roger said: "Eton Forever has been working nicely and goes there in good form. He has won at the track before and whilst most of his recent form is over seven (furlongs), an easy mile shouldn't hold any problems for him."
