Trainer Eve Johnson Houghton is adamant Accidental Agent can challenge for glory at Kempton on Wednesday.
Accidental Agent has been included in a high-class field for the British Stallion Studs EBF Hyde Stakes and there is a sense of optimism from connections ahead of the race in Surrey.
The five-year-old has been running consistently in 2019, picking up a second at Salisbury and a third at Newmarket last time out, with the only blemish coming in defence of his Queen Anne title when he refused to leave the stalls.
Barring that run, the bay horse has been looking good and Houghton is adamant her charge can put in a strong display.
"He's in good form - if he behaves himself! He's not bad, I know he's got a squiggle against his name but I think that is undeserved. He just decides when he wants to participate," she was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"He's been running well of late, it's just that bottomless ground doesn't really suit him. He has a win at Kempton to his name already, so we'll see how he gets on."
