Gained a third success in four runs when winning on soft ground at Newmarket in July, and while he’s yet to score again, the gelding has twice performed well in better company of late. Rates as a big player on form.
Versatile regarding tactics and course type, but may be where the assessor wants him now.

A winner at Carlisle in July, the gelding arrives here off the back of a solid effort in second at Redcar last time out. On that evidence, he’s not one to dismiss lightly.
Up an unhelpful 5lb for not winning at Redcar latest (7f); not sure extra 1f rates a plus.

Hasn’t won since winning a maiden back in July 2017, and although his effort over further at Epsom in July was a positive one, the step down in trip didn’t do him any favours last time out. Not easy to fancy on that evidence.
Solid place finishes at 1m2f this summer but drop back in trip is worth a try; down 1lb.

Improved to finish second on just her third start, while the filly continued to move in the right direction when winning with lots in hand over course and distance last time out. That effort suggested that she’s got plenty more to give, so much so that it’s hard to oppose her in this six-runner affair.
Ran to about previous best when making all over C&D (firm) in July; may yet fare better.

Scored at Nottingham in June, though the gelding has been unable to match that effort since. Has run some nice races, but since he’s failed to come out on top in Class 5 company of late, it’s tough to see the gelding winning this.
Neck second at Sandown two starts back but darker side evident last time; others safer.

Won at the first time of asking when beating thirteen rivals to the post at Newbury, though the colt has since failed to move in the right direction. Arrives here having finished a tame fourth at Doncaster last time out. Needs to do more on that evidence.
More like it again when near-3l fourth at Doncaster latest (1m2f); drops back 2f and 3lb.
