Faithful Promise
Best Odds
Capla Demon
J: Gina Mangan
T: Gay Kelleway
Form: 36225
Age: 3
Weight: 9-7
Placed at both Thirsk and Kempton in recent starts prior to a disappointing run on the All-Weather last time. He'd been progressive prior to that run, and Gina Mangan takes off seven pounds today. No surprise were he to bounce back.
Chance if reproducing form of Kempton second in June but bit disappointing last time
Faithful Promise
J: Lewis Edmunds
T: Chris Dwyer
Form: 659823
Age: 3
Weight: 9-6
On a nine-race losing streak, with her profile very patchy this year. She's hit the frame on her last two starts, however, including on stable debut over course and distance last time. The cheekpieces now go on and she's now eight pounds below her last winning mark.
Two sprint wins last year; placed over C&D on recent stable debut; cheekpieces now
J: William Carson
T: Paul D'Arcy
Form: -46911
Age: 3
Weight: 9-4
Hat-trick seeker, holding on gamely to score at Newmarket eight days ago by a neck. She's now two pounds higher and although she does need more to be scoring again, she has a great attitude and she's unlikely to be far away.
Won her last two and still on competitive mark; one to take seriously
Dreamboat Annie
J: Jason Watson
T: Mark Usher
Form: U76714
Age: 3
Weight: 9-4
Capitalised on a sliding mark with a four-length victory over course and distance, well-held under a penalty at Newbury subsequently. Her new five-pound higher mark now kicks in and given her prior form off similar marks, she's vulnerable here.
Easy win over C&D last month but held off 6lb lower latest, albeit in Class 4
J: Toby Eley
T: Steph Hollinshead
Form: 96-227
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
Placed on two of his last three starts, not quite able to stay the seven-furlong trip at Wolverhampton last time. A drop in distance is a positive and any rain is a big help, but you have to feel he'll fall short without further progress, which he's lacked.
Maiden but 2nd twice on soft ground in April; return to 6f is a plus; rain would help
J: Tony Hamilton
T: Tim Easterby
Form: 372984
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
Yet to score from eight attempts, with form this year very difficult to get a hand on. His fourth on his final start for Scott Dixon was a fair effort, but he was still well-held and needs plenty more on stable debut, including rain.
Maiden but promise for previous yard; rain would help and market informative
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Martin Smith
Form: 0-8204
Age: 3
Weight: 8-11
Nine-race maiden who was placed over seven furlongs here in June, not quite up to that level the last twice. He tries six furlongs for the first time today and the blinkers are also added, but he doesn't seem likely to want this drop back in trip (stayed on well over further).
Ran well here in June (7f) and not disgraced latest; blinkers tried now dropped in trip
