J: Daniel Muscutt

T: David O’Meara

Running well on slow turf this autumn, winning at Beverley (7.5f) in September and finishing second at Doncaster last month (7f, heavy); three AW runs came when qualifying for a mark and there's no obvious reason why he wouldn't prove as effective on this surface in time.

J: Hector Crouch

T: Heather Main

Finished third of 15 in the 2018 running; has had a stop-start year but testing conditions suit and he looked in good form when a ready winner from Hodler at Leicester 18 days ago (7f, soft; first-time cheekpieces, retained); back up 5lb; one of the more likely ones.

Hodler

9st 10lb

J: Ryan Sexton

T: Jim Boyle

Acts well on soft and did really well when second of 17 to a big improver in this race last year; has tended to blow hot and cold this season but did his best work late when reunited with Ryan Sexton behind Marshal Dan at Leicester recently (7f, soft); bang there off 2lb lower than 12 months ago.

Scored at Chester (7f, soft) in May but he's been below par since, only fifth back at Chester (in the mud) last time; handily weighted though if getting back on track.

Four most recent wins over 7f at Epsom (on good and good to firm) and has been kept to downhill tracks for his last six starts; has handled soft ground but whether he can come up with the Epsom goods on this very different track remains to be seen.

Often leads; one of his three 7f wins came on soft (the others on good to firm) but questionable whether testing ground brings out the best in him and others more likely to be suited by the conditions.

Won over C&D (good) last September on her third 2yo start, then absent until 15 days ago when a fair third of six in Kempton handicap (7f, AW); could improve for that latest run and she's one to be interested in.

Lunatick

9st 4lb

J: Rob Hornby

T: Hughie Morrison

Off the mark in two-runner race at Brighton in September and things haven't gone to plan in two 1m runs since, had no luck in running at Newbury (heavy) and again pulled hard when seeing too much daylight at Goodwood since; the return to 7f, for the first time on turf, could be ideal; involved.

Justified favouritism in two-runner maiden at Brighton (1m, good), then wasn't disgraced in Newbury handicap (1m, heavy; met traffic issues, bare form can be marked up) later in September; not ruled out.

Verdict

The revised terms give HODLER a good chance of reversing Leicester placings with Marshal Dan, who is respected all the same. Third choice is unexposed Talis Evolvere, ahead of fellow 3yo Lunatick. Dashing Roger would enter calculations if turning up here instead of Doncaster.[Steve Boow]
