Verdict

Richard Fahey's SPRAY THE SEA probably still has a bigger performance in him and this could be the day he delivers it.

First-time cheekpieces are in place after a below expectations fifth at Epsom following two second spots at Doncaster and Brighton. Down a pound now and overall form gives her every chance if the headgear brings a modicum of improvement.
Runner-up twice this summer but only 5th latest; cheekpieces added

A winner on his return for the season at Doncaster in June but didn’t build on that as hoped when a nineteen length thirteenth at Hamilton when eased off once beaten. Dropped a pound but hard to trust at present after his last run.
Winning return for new yard at Doncaster in June; can't have been right at Hamilton since

His stable won this last season and are back to try again with the son of Intikhab who has been running consistently since his last win at Hamilton in July. Upped nine pounds for that and may need to come down a few pounds to get involved.
Ready winner at Hamilton in July; excuses for defeats since and one to consider

An easy winner by three and a half lengths at Hamilton in July but found an added six pounds too much when beaten forty-eight lengths at York in July. Down in class this afternoon but has to bounce back to put in a serious challenge.
Ready winner on h'cap bow in June; something amiss at York since and run best forgiven

Just the second run for the stable after leaving Jean-Claude Rouget last month and in good form with a top four finish in all five starts this season. Beaten five and a quarter lengths at Wolverhampton last month and open to plenty of improvement.
Ex-French; decent start for new yard when 3rd on AW but will need to step up on that

A winner at Ayr over a mile in August and not disgraced off eight pounds higher at Chepstow when a three and a half-length third when leading before being passed close home. Same handicap mark today and won’t be far away again.
First win when making all at Ayr (1m) last month; up 8lb and just as good when 3rd since

Trainer Keith Dalgleish has added a visor for the first time this afternoon after blinkers failed to see the expected improvement when fifth at Haydock, close to five lengths adrift. Still a maiden after eleven starts but may finally be improving slowly.
Now 0-11 and first-time visor needs to have a positive effect after 10-week break
