Prominent-racer who won at Ripon (1m, soft) in April and, after a good third at Newbury (7f, good to soft) last month, he scored when back at Ripon (1m, good) most recently; one to consider up 4lb.

J: Alex Jary

T: Nigel Tinkler

Prominent racer whose form has been patchy since he won at Ripon (1m, soft) in April, and he was no match for the front two when third at Goodwood (7f, heavy) last time; however, it was a step back in the right direction and he ran well here (1m, good) last year on his sole course visit; a possible.

Form & Verdict

Made it two wins for the year when scoring at Sandown (1m, good to firm) in June and fair third of six at Hamilton (1m, good to soft) next time; however, only seventh the last twice and needs to raise his game.

Form & Verdict

5yo who was better than ever when winning at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) in June and posted another career-best when runner-up to Kathab at Haydock a fortnight ago (1m, good; ground changed to good to soft immediately after race); every chance he'll be thereabouts.

All four wins on much quicker ground than he's likely to face this evening; only eighth of 13 when making his reappearance in this race on soft ground last year and the suspicion is he'll find a few too strong again.

Four-time winner on turf; won a small-field event at Yarmouth in June and he's followed that with three creditable runs in stronger company; tailed off over 1m2f here on only AW run but he finished lame on that occasion; not discounted down in class.

Kicked off 3yo campaign with two wins (1m, soft/good to soft; including C&D) and back to form when third at Newmarket (1m2f, good) last time, when shaping as though he may appreciate this drop back in trip; wears first-time blinkers and he's one to consider.

Inconsistent and down the field the last twice, but good to soft ground was against him over C&D most recently; this front-runner has won over C&D four times, including this race two years ago, and is not written off.
