This longer trip should be fine for THE LAST EMPEROR and the horse who beat him here last time was completing a hat-trick.
The Last Emperor
Has done most of his winning on the All-Weather, though his sole turf victory did come at this venue (albeit over the mile). Arrives here completely out of form, failing to beat a rival home from his last two runs. Certainly risky enough.
Has won four but off for 119 days and was in poor form back then.

Novice winner on debut who arrives here after two second-place finishes over the mile, shaping as though he needed further. He gets that today and given his 230,000gns price-tag, connections clearly think a huge amount of him.
Same mark as when second to one bang in form here last time; should be fine at 1m2f.

Has been a mixed bag since winning at Windsor in June, with two poor runs flanking a close third at Chelmsford. Won't mind stepping back up to this trip, but he's handicapped to his best and he's completely exposed.
Below best in two of his last three starts and others appeal more.

Extremely frustrating five-year-old who has placed second on five occasions this year. Arrives here on the back of two disappointing runs over the mile and he tends to find little for pressure. Can't afford to be keen over this trip.
Hold-up performer who can take a keen hold and is very hard to win with (3-36 now).

Dual-novice winner earlier in the year, not disgraced in her first two handicap runs prior to a poor run at Kempton last time. Should be suited by further and the yard going well, interesting contender.
Dual novice winner so far held in handicaps, but this longer trip looks a good move.

135,000 euro purchase who posted just the one good novice run from three, looking a non-stayer over this trip at Newbury when last seen in May. Makes his handicap debut off a lowly mark, gelded over the break. Watch the market.
On a tough enough mark for handicap debut but has been gelded during 119-day absence.
