Verdict

Exchequer lurks dangerously off his lower turf mark but JUANITO CHICO is interesting with excuses for his last couple of starts.

Losing sequence stretches back to August 2016 and he's had plenty of chances since. Ran a stormer in a tougher race at York two starts ago, not disgraced in the Irish Cambridgeshire last time. Capable but very frustrating.
Close third at York two runs back but lesser run since and is hard to win with on turf.

Won the Group 3 John Of Gaunt in June 2017, suffering a torrid time of things this year. Has fallen to his lowest mark in over four years and his latest run at Goodwood suggested he's more than capable of a big run with a clear passage.
Group 3 winner last season but nowhere near that level thus far this campaign.

Very good second at Thirsk two starts ago prior to a defeat at Chester, where the draw was against him. Has never been the most consistent and not assured to bounce back, but he's certainly dangerosu to discount.
Had a bad draw at Chester last time and nearly won the time before off 2lb lower.

Beaten half a length off two pounds lower at Sandown two starts ago, unable to back up that run at Kempton seven days ago. That took his record to 2/18 and given his run style, he needs plenty of luck in running.
Beaten only half a length over 1m here before not getting the clearest of runs at Kempton.

Front-runner who has faced two very tough tasks since a placed effort at Newmarket in July. Should find things much easier going here but won't get an easy lead and hard to recommend given how he shaped last Saturday.
Could have run better at Ascot last week, albeit in a very hot handicap.

Nottingham winner un June off a pound lower, poor in three runs since, latterly in the Stewards' Cup. This is obviously a much easier contest, but stepping up to seven furlongs raises stamina doubts, with this only his second attempt.
Has been struggling in competitive handicaps since his Nottingham win in June.

Hard to win with but does arrive here after two excusable runs, hampered at both Epsom and York in the summer. Has fallen back onto a feasible mark, but a leap of faith is required given how much trouble he tends to find.
Progressive last year and had excuses since a respectable reappearance at Newmarket.

Completed an All-Weather four-timer earlier this year, struggling on the turf in three runs since. Sits on a dangerous mark if putting everything together, but he does look to just be a better horse on the Synthetics.
Four-timer on Fibresand earlier in the year but has struggled since returned to turf.

Has gone close on two occasions this year, both under today's seven-pound claimer. Beaten just a neck over course and distance in a lower grade last time, raised a pound. Bit more needed but unlikely to be far away.
Goes well for Emma Wilkinson and round here, only nailed late on the last time.

Broke a long-standing losing sequence at Kempton two starts ago, making the most of a drop into Class 5 company. Back up in grade off his new mark at Lingfield last time, he was safely held. Dangerous mark on turf and off a featherweight.
Better for wind surgery on the AW and returns to turf on a dangerous mark.
