50/1

Filly was a C&D winner in July 2016 but has had a troubled time since and two turf runs since joining this yard have left more questions than answers.

9/2

Fair performer, with a 25% strike rate on the AW that includes a C&D success in January 2015. Latest success over 1m2f at Newcastle in July and on the same mark again now.

9/1

Both AW wins have arrived this year, including here over shorter trip in March, struggling for form since Epsom success in July and best watched for now.

6/1

Generally consistent this season and gained a deserved win at Haydock in August (1m3 ½f, good to soft). This looks more competitive and he was well held back at Haydock eight days ago.

9/1

Can only be described as a disappointment since making the ideal start to his career at Lingfield in March (1m4f). A fast falling mark has yet to threaten to reap dividends, and was well beaten over C&D in July.

40/1

Lightly-raced sort was full of promise around here in late 2015 and early last year, returned from 607 days off last month with a lifeless display over C&D. Hard to assess now.

Has won around here in the past but now coming back from 590 days away and unless money is down will surely be needing this run.

3/1

Won a maiden here over extended-mile in September last, arrives now on the back of a solid effort over this trip at Epsom (good to firm) in August and holds claims.

May well have more to offer over this trip than looked the case last time at Newcastle, particularly if getting more pace to aim at.

Returned from a 455-day layoff with a commendable third over C&D two weeks ago, drops 1lb now and must get involved if able to build on that effort.

Nine-race maiden and has struggled in five turf runs since switching to this yard, had run well over this C&D in maiden company but plenty to prove on these terms.

Forecast

Ode To Glory (3/1), Sir Gnet (7/2), Frozon (4/1), Archipeligo (9/2), Omotesando (6/1), Singular Quest (8/1), Star Of Lombardy (9/1), Voski (9/1), Kaisan (33/1), Enriching (40/1), Innish Man (40/1), Mayasa (50/1)

Verdict

Frozon has won two from three recent C&D starts and needs plenty respect having gone up the minimum for the latest of those. Singular Quest was close behind that evening returning from a long spell on the sidelines and can surely give him a race now if able to build on the reappearance, while Sir Gnet is unexposed over this trip and is expected to play a leading role granted some pace to aim at. Another with winning C&D form is ARCHIPELIGO and he's on a workable mark returned to this trip having run a solid race over shorter last time out.
