Verdict

Mark Johnston can make it four wins from the last six runnings with AUSTRIAN SCHOOL, who should relish this first crack at 2m.

Smart colt who has long shaped as though a dour stamina test such as this would suit him. Warrants serious respect here despite having to concede lumps of weight away to his rivals.
Fine efforts in defeat since his last win and pedigree firmly indicates he'll relish 2m

Progressive RPR’s in her five starts to date and she is currently 2-2 in handicap company. Now five pounds higher than when winning at Windsor last time out. She may have more to come now tackling extreme trips, however.
Big jump up in trip but she's chasing a hat-trick for trainer with excellent record here

Bidding for a hat-trick today after wins at Catterick and Sandown respectively. Carries a six-pound penalty this afternoon, and he will need more to land this contest. Dangerous to rule out in his current form though.
Made it two in a row at Sandown last time; this a tougher test of his credentials

Weight: 8-2
On the crest of a wave at present and is unbeaten from four previous attempts in handicap company. All of those wins came in Class 6 company, however, and he is now six pounds higher than his latest success.
4-4 this season and idled in front at Chepstow most recently; 6lb rise could be lenient

Weight: 8-0
Has struggled for form in three starts in novice company thus far. Now makes his handicap debut, but this is a tough ask coming up against some in-form rivals. Likely vulnerable running from two pounds out of the weights.
Market check advised on handicap debut but improvement is very much needed
