Past course winner, but so often strongest at Hamilton. That said; he hasn't been in great shape on turf since April hence his declining mark and needs to show at least a glimmer of a revival before making any appeal.

Handles this track well (career form figures read; 3,3,1,2,3,5), and was in good order earlier in the year on Tapeta at Newcastle. However has shown signs of those races catching up with him and seemingly a fraction below par at present.

Took full advantage of a drop into selling company to score on two occasions over C&D in 2017. However, has also shown he can compete at this level at this track in handicaps, and having run adequately from this mark latest has claims.

11/1
A 13 time career winner who can be an in and out performer, and appears best suited by a strongly run 5f at Newcastle these days. That said; not beaten all that far when fifth to Perfect Words here latest (5f) and now 2lb lower.

Steps out of maiden company for the first time to take on his elders. Needs to improve on what he's shown in three starts to date, but is fairly unexposed and this opening mark isn't overly harsh.

Consistent performer who found the drop back to 6f to her liking when scoring by ½L from Deben over C&D earlier this month. Encounters different ground conditions today, but a 2lb rise appears most fair, and should play a hand.

Renews rivalry with Melaniemille on 2lb better terms (for ½L) and probably better back over this trip than 7f latest. Doesn't win very often but races almost exclusively at this track nowadays and therefore impossible to dismiss lightly.

An 11 race maiden who has tried various trips to no avail. Difficult to imagine he'll be able to figure amongst the placings despite a basement handicap mark.

An eight race maiden who generally struggles to beat too many rivals home. However, showed some minor promise when fifth of 13 over 5f here in April, but dismal since and now plummeting in the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Melaniemillie (2/1), Searanger (9/4), Deben (5/1), Indian Pursuit (8/1), Windforpower (11/1), Salvatore Fury (12/1), Ginger Love (50/1), Nifty Niece (50/1), Lukoutoldmakezebak (66/1)

Verdict

Both Melaniemille and SEARANGER might not be blessed with the most ability in the world, but given their respective conditions and grade have proved themselves as more than capable of winning races. Whilst in title this race is slightly stronger than the type of contest that the selection has twice tasted victory in over C&D earlier this year, more than a couple of the horses in today's line up would appear to have all but no chance of winning. Therefore, with a fair recent fourth placed effort under his belt, Searanger might not even need to pull out just a fraction more to score now reunited with PJ McDonald.
