NEW! A 'WS' icon means the horse has had wind surgery to improve its breathing since its last run.

Multiple Group winner in his time and returned to form with a win in a decent Listed race on Lincoln Day at Doncaster on seasonal bow. Has failed to reproduce that effort since and he looks vulnerable to less exposed types with higher BHA ratings.

Useful handicapper who made the frame in a couple of Group races in 2015. Without a win since 2014 and has several pounds to find in order to take this.

Has two wins and two seconds from six starts around here. Steps up considerably in class but yard are going well and sprang a surprise in this 12 months ago.

4-9 but appears to have two ways of running. Possible the tactics have been wrong on his last two starts and that he needs to lie up with the pace. In form stable have employed a rider with a good record for them who has won on him previously.

Beat Home Of The Brave in the 2016 Hungerford Stakes but has not been the same horse since. Visor and ease in grade now tried following two lacklustre efforts in 2017.

Has made all to land two races here and at Kempton including a Listed race in May when accounting for Escobar by 1L. Goes well fresh and has been given a break since a dismal effort in June.

Has winning form at this level and proved an easy victor of a competitive handicap at Ascot in July. Subsequent efforts of the third that day, Fire Brigade, suggest his current BHA rating does not flatter him. Looks the one to beat as a result .

Has made little progress since going down in a tight finish to Khafoo Shememi earlier in the year. Current headgear configuration eludes to his problems since and hard to fancy as a result.

Landed a Group Three a year ago with Escobar 9L in rear. Faced some hard tasks subsequently but has been below his best most recently when finding little. Change of scenery may help and the market may provide clues.

Cambridgeshire entry showed improved form to score at Newmarket last time when assisted by a change of tactics and going described as "more holding" than his previous flop behind D'bai at Ascot. More to do on this quicker surface at this level.

Betting

Forecast

D'bai (7/4), Laidback Romeo (11/2), Larchmont Lad (8/1), Naval Warfare (9/1), Richard Pankhurst (9/1), Escobar (12/1), Khafoo Shememi (14/1), Murad Khan (14/1), Hors De Combat (16/1), Kool Kompany (20/1)

Verdict

Richard Pankhurst and Larchmont Lad have sound claims on their 2016 form but more current efforts suggest they carry some risk. Khafoo Shememi is suited to positive tactics on a right-handed track and goes well fresh. As a result he has a lot in his favour although Naval Warfare could spoil things up front. D'BAI was not beaten far in a French Listed event last time having comfortably landed an Ascot handicap. That form has worked out well enough to give him an excellent chance on these terms and he has fewer questions to answer than his rivals.
  1. D'bai
