99-10OR: 104D
20/1

Listed winner/Group-placed performer in his younger days, but not so good recently (no win since June 2016) and has his work cut out from top weight here.

Appealing overall strike-rate but has drawn a blank so far this year. This looks a more suitable test, though, and he wears first-time cheekpieces.

10/1

Finished the turf season in good form, being denied a hat-trick only narrowly at Doncaster last week. Two runs on the AW so far have been unimpressive but a player if able to reproduce his turf form.

Finished fifth in the Easter Classic when last seen, not beaten far. Drops back in trip here and is on what should be a workable mark, especially with his apprentice rider claiming 7lb.

9/2

Beaten only narrowly at this course last time out over a furlong shorter, but stays this far and if anything may be slightly better over this trip. On a career-high mark but lightly raced for his age.

4/1

Lightly-raced type who won a Leicester maiden on debut before being beaten favourite at Newcastle in April. Has something to prove now on handicap debut but he clearly possess talent and could improve further.

Has picked up a couple of fair races in his career but overall record not encouraging, including when beaten into fifth in a 7f handicap here last time.

C&D winner who was well-beaten on his last two starts before a recent break. Likes it here but has never won off a handicap mark this high before.

Went close at Kempton last time having run well in some valuable handicaps in recent seasons. Has won off a much higher mark than this in his younger days and also has a good record on Polytrack.

2/1

C&D winner who has been slightly disappointing in races at this level so far this season but put in a career best at Kempton last time out, and always seems most at home on an AW surface; strong claims.

Steps back up in trip having finished well out of the places in two valuable handicaps the last twice, but still wasn't beaten too far at Chelmsford latest. Has never won on the AW in Britain, though.

Betting

Forecast

Eagle Creek (2/1), Utmost (4/1), Sacred Act (9/2), Arcanada (7/1), Charles Molson (8/1), Shady Mccoy (10/1), Certificate (10/1), Belgian Bill (12/1), Gabrial (20/1), Third Time Lucky (33/1), Swift Approval (40/1), Forceful Appeal (50/1)

Verdict

This can go to BELGIAN BILL. He was only narrowly beaten at Kempton last time having run some very encouraging races in better events than this through the summer. His good record on Polytrack and the fact he has won off a much higher mark in the past (albeit when younger) are further causes for enthusiasm and he has a nice draw in one. Meanwhile Eagle Creek should have more to offer and has won over C&D in the past, while Third Time Lucky ran a nice race in the Easter Classic here last time and shouldn't mind the drop in trip.
