One with better prospects than his form figures suggest is ALTERNATIVE FACT (nap), who was quite an eyecatcher at Sandown last time.

Form: 390-17
Age: 6
Weight: 10-0
Made all to land a handicap at Chester in May. That was his debut for Ian Williams, but he failed to build on that initial success when well beaten at Redcar last time out. Respected if getting an easy lead here, but that looks unlikely.
Likes to lead, which didn't happen when favourite for the Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar.

Not disgraced on his return from a 163-day break when fourth at Ripon last month. Does tend to go well fresh, so unlikely to improve significantly for that run. His chances will be enhanced if ground conditions deteriorate.
Recent rain welcomed; can go well fresh and his April run was encouraging.

Weight: 9-5
Improving colt who came up just short in his bid for the four-timer when beaten just under a length over this course and distance last time out. Now four pounds higher, but that appeared to prove his effectiveness on this sort of ground.
Four-timer came up just short over C&D but lost nothing in defeat; up another 4lb.
Alternative Fact
J: Frankie Dettori

Form: 12-685

Weight: 9-4
Smart juvenile and although he was well held in his first two starts this term, both of those efforts came in Group company. Not disgraced on his handicap debut at Sandown last time out, soft ground no concern and a big run is anticipated here.
Group races too tough but ran well on handicap debut at Sandown after starting slowly.
J: Tom Marquand
T: Hugo Palmer
Form: 5316
Age: 3
Weight: 9-1
Got off the mark at the third attempt when bolting up in a novice race at Haydock in June. Found Group 3 company too strong for him last time out. Should improve now handicapping, however, and he likely has room to manoeuvre off this mark.
Good Haydock winner before outclassed in a Group 3 last time; not yet fully exposed.
J: Jason Watson
T: David Menuisier
Form: 4-9111

Weight: 9-0
His form has improved markedly of late and he is bidding for a four-timer this afternoon. Course and distance winner last time out, now running from a five pounds higher mark, but he is dangerous to rule out in his current form.
Unwise to underestimate latest winning form for all that it was a match; raised 5lb.
Derek Duval

T: Stuart Williams
Form: 521421
Age: 4
Weight: 8-12
Recorded a career-best RPR when scoring in a handicap over this trip at Epsom last time out. A three pounds rise for that win looks potentially lenient, but he would appreciate the ground conditions drying up.
Good value for latest Epsom win but all his victories have come in Class 4s or 5s.
