CONTINGENCY FEE had a superb 2021 with the highlight being a hat trick at Brighton and Bath. He made a fantastic return to racing in April when home with 3+ in hand at Yarmouth. A 4lb higher mark isn’t a huge issue and he’s likely to have more to come. MING DYNASTY returns from 259 days off after being sent chasing with plenty of success. He’s most interesting returning to the flat at 10 years old after 1429 days away from it and is certainly capable of landing a contest like this provided he doesn’t need the run.
