Gossip Column is respected but BAJAN GOLD looks particularly solid on his recent C&D run and he gets the verdict.

Best Odds
Berkshire Blue
J: Joao Moreira
T: Andrew Balding
Form: 417
Age: 3
Weight: 9-10
Lightly raced three-year-old making just the fourth start of his career today. Well held in a Group 3 at Newmarket last time out, he should find this race easier on handicap debut, but this does not look a lenient opening mark.
Wide-margin winner at Wolverhampton on second start; well held in Group 3 latest
Gossip Column
J: Andrasch Starke
T: Ian Williams
Form: 121141
Age: 3
Weight: 9-10
Improving sort who has won four of his six starts since joining these connections, rising twenty-two pounds up the handicap in the process. Hard to completely rule out here, but he was comfortably beaten on his only previous visit to this track.
Progressive sort who is 4-6 for new connections this year; made all at Chester last Sunday
Bayshore Freeway
J: Gerald Mosse
T: Mark Johnston
Form: 211413
Age: 3
Weight: 9-5
Her form has improved significantly of late, and she now has two wins from four starts in handicap company. Ran with credit in a one-mile six-furlong handicap at Chelmsford last time out, more needed back at this trip, however.
Her three wins came in small fields; this is stronger company
Blue Laureate
J: Pat Cosgrave
T: Ian Williams
Form: -50072
Age: 3
Weight: 9-5
Caught the eye when staying on to grab seventh-place on his debut for these connections in June. He could only manage second-place in a three-runner race at Newmarket last time out though. This yard has stronger claims with Gossip Column.
Form of latest Newmarket effort isn't entirely compelling
Sergio Leone
J: Corey Brown
T: Richard Hannon
Form: 467122
Age: 3
Weight: 9-4
Gained the second win of his career when scoring in an Amateur Riders’ Handicap at Newbury last month. He has recorded progressive RPR’s in his two starts since. Respected here for a yard that has won two of the last three renewals of this race.
1m winner a month ago and has gone well over middle distances (1m2f/1m3f) since
J: Per-Anders Graberg
T: Mick Channon
Form: 773331
Age: 3
Weight: 9-4
Returned to the winner’s enclosure after landing a one-mile two-furlong handicap at Sandown last time out. He has been raised four pounds for that win, however, and he has his stamina to prove at this trip.
Suited by return to 1m2f when scoring at Sandown; worth a go at 1m4f
Bajan Gold
J: Josephine Gordon
T: Stuart Williams
Form: -01132
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
Progressive RPR’s in his five starts this season, culminating in a respectable run over this course and distance last time out. He has been raised three pounds for that effort, but he should run his race once again this afternoon.
Significant improvement since upped to middle distances; neck second over C&D latest
J: Hayley Turner
T: George Margarson
Form: 121875
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
Gained two wins on the All-Weather earlier this season but he has beaten just the one rival home in three starts on turf since. Struggled in a Class 4 handicap at Windsor last time out, significantly more is required now back up in grade.
Underperformed when back down in class last time; best form remains on AW
Bubble And Squeak
J: Adam Kirby
T: Sylvester Kirk
Form: 3-5103
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
Her form has been in and out in four starts this term, but she recorded a career-best RPR when third over a mile here last month. Respected if building on that effort, but she has major stamina doubts now stepped up half a mile in trip.
Campaigned at 1m this season; has stamina doubts over this new trip
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Jim Goldie
Form: 4463
Age: 3
Weight: 8-9
Four-race maiden for Marco Botti, she was purchased for 29,000 guineas at the sales last month and is now in the care of Jim Goldie. More needed to feature on her debut for these connections, running from five pounds out of the weights.
Some promise for Marco Botti; 5lb out of weights upped in class
T: John Gosden
Form: 61-13
