59-2OR: 73
12/1

Has won on tapeta before at Wolverhampton and shaped well over this trip at Hamilton finishing a close second. This track should suit his hold-up style but does have an absence to overcome.

2/1

Three-time C&D winner who is still two pounds below highest winning mark and seems to be thriving this winter. The one to beat if he returns in the same form.

C&D winner who won well here two starts back. Has plenty to find on these terms though having to carry the same weight as several who have achieved more.

Has bounced back to form in last two starts but has work to do to turn around two-and-a-half length defeat to Bollihope and only two-pounds better off.

7/1

C&D winner who has struggled to break on terms recently and that has to be a concern given the competitiveness of this race. Holds every chance if he can get his act together though and has won better races than this in his career.

Drops back in trip but best recent efforts have come over further and hasn't exactly hit the ground running in four starts for this yard.

89-2OR: 74
7/1

Has failed to place in eight runs since returning from 19-month break in May and while he's been performing to a consistent level, it's far below his best and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Bollihope (2/1), Siren's Cove (7/2), L'Inganno Felice (4/1), Polar Forest (7/1), Storm King (7/1), All You (12/1), Kicking The Can (14/1)

Verdict

BOLLIHOPE has won over C&D three times in his career to date and he is taken to make it four. Another horse's running style that should suit this track is All You who has a absence to overcome but performed well over this distance at Hamilton. Polar Forest has been slow out of the starting stalls the last twice but has operated at a higher level than this and very capable of taking this race if he can get his act together. 1. Bollihope 2. All You 3. Polar Forest
