Storm Ahead needs serious consideration but INTENSE STYLE ran well at Carlisle last month, is well drawn and looks ready to strike.
Ran out a 20/1 winner of a Gentleman Amateur Riders handicap at York in May, but he has struggled for form in his three starts since. Currently still three pounds above that last winning mark, and he has a tough draw to overcome in stall 10.
Won big-field event at York in May but short of that level since; wide draw not ideal here

Now without a win for over two years, and he was well held in a handicap at York on Sunday. Well treated on his best form, however, and the return to these genuinely soft ground conditions should suit him today.
On losing run but penultimate second a good effort and has his ground here; well drawn

|17 Jun 18||Doncaster||1m GF||4Hc||9-3||3/8||Flying North (2½L)||11/4F||81||83|
Showed some useful form on the All-Weather earlier this year, but he was well held on his return from a break at Chepstow last month. The handicapper has dropped him three pounds since that run, but others are preferred for now.
Three-time AW winner but 0-4 on turf and unproven on soft ground

Not the most frequent winner, but he finished a close second in a handicap at Carlisle last time out and is running from the same handicap mark today. Respected here if building on that last run.
On handy mark and latest 2nd a solid effort; conditions to suit and one to take seriously

Usually saves his best for Chester, top four RPR’s have all come at this track. He failed to beat a single rival home in a fourteen-runner handicap at Thirsk last time out. The return to this softer ground should suit him though.
Four-time course winner but well held latest and vulnerable from the widest draw

|26 May 18||York||7f Gd||3Hc||10-9||20/20||Magic City (25L)||20/1||76||18|
Rated in the low 100’s at his peak, and he took advantage of this much lower mark when scoring over this course and distance in July. Now just three pounds above that last winning mark, and he is still well treated if recapturing some of his best form.
C&D winner in June and not impossibly treated; drying ground would suit; tricky draw

|16 Sep 17||Chester||1m 2.5f Hy||4Hc||9-6||4/11||Bahama Moon (5½L)||13/2||76||75|
Winner of this race (from a six pounds lower mark) back in 2015. Has been in respectable form recently, and he was not beaten fair into fourth over this course and distance on his start prior to last. Claims here if returning to that level of form.
Won this off 6lb lower in 2015; running well this year but could use ground drying out

|7 Apr 18||Wolverhampton (AW)||7f St||5Hc||9-3||3/9||Fire Diamond (3¾L)||14/1||76||74|
Badly out of form this term, but as a result of those efforts, he is now running from seven pounds below his last winning mark. Connections now fit him with first-time blinkers, and leading amateur Simon Walker is booked to ride.
Struggling this year but dropped in the weights and Simon Walker booked; could revive

|2 Sep 17||Sandown||1m Gd||4Hc||9-12||10/12||Al Nafoorah (7¾L)||11/1||81||71|
In good heart earlier this season, but he struggled in a mile handicap at Salisbury last time out. Questions to answer here on the back of that run, but he was a winner on his last start on soft ground.
Two wins this year but well held last time and new mark kicked in now

|12 May 18||Nottingham||1m 0.5f GF||6Hc||9-5 p||13/16||Thornaby Nash (26L)||6/1F||60||9|
Has run more bad races than good races in his eight starts this year. Now running from twelve pounds below his last winning mark, but others in this field arrive here with far less to prove at present.
12lb lower than for soft-ground win in October but that as a result of a low-key 2018

Was a 25/1 winner of a handicap at Goodwood last August, but he has failed to match that level of form in six starts since. Currently eight pounds below his last winning mark, but he is comfortably passed over for now.
Not fired so far this year but conditions fine and has dropped in the weights; inside draw

She has recorded regressive RPR’s in her four starts on turf this year, but her run at Wolverhampton last week was not devoid of promise. Not discounted here if returning to her best form, but she is now without a win on turf since August 2015.
Didn't run badly last weekend, experienced rider booked and not a forlorn hope
