Won his first two starts of the campaign at Pontefract and Redcar on firmer ground, not disgraced in two subsequent starts in Class 2 company. He's capable down in grade and he ran well on heavy in France last year; considered.

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Highly-tried five-year-old who has done very little wrong in recent starts, including two placed runs in higher company. He's won off higher marks previously and handles heavy going, so he needs considering for the places.
Solid form of late and won on heavy last November; can give another good account

Won in a higher grade at Chester two starts on softer ground, running a shade below that standard when fifth at the same venue last time. He remains unexposed on softer going and another career-best effort is hard to rule out.
Career best when making all two starts ago, his sole run on going slower than good to soft

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 35 in the last 14 days (3%)
Long Traveller - Trained 150+ miles from racecourse
Has been painfully inconsistent since winning a soft ground handicap at Newmarket last July. He did return this year with a placed run at Chelmsford, but a subsequent poor run over the same course and distance complicates matters.
Disappointing at Chelmsford latest but this soft-ground 1m winner can't be ruled out

Form has gone alarmingly south since a placed run at Chelmsford last September, well beaten in all three of his starts in 2019. He's now dropped to an extremely dangerous mark, but there is a huge amount of risk attached.
Mark continues to tumble but he's been out of form this season

Winless sequence extends all the way back to June 2015, having his first run since June 2018 when running a fair race on stable debut at Kempton in March. He's capable on the surface and sits on a dangerous mark, but he's difficult to trust.
On much-reduced mark and not beaten far on stable debut, but losing run keeps mounting up

Winless on the turf since July 2017, currently sitting four pounds below that mark. His latest third at Wetherby was a step in the right direction and he's won here on softer ground, so he's impossible to rule out for a place.

Bounced back from a poor run at Beverley when reappearing a day later to win a Wetherby handicap. He's gone up two pounds for that and he handles a softer surface, but his overall profile makes him difficult to entirely trust.
Got up late at Wetherby a fortnight ago and he remains on a winning mark; handles soft

Verdict

The 2-2 Haydock record (including on soft) of GULF OF POETS catches the eye and he was drawn on the wrong side at Newbury last time.
