11/1

Group class in her heyday although not at that level these days. Over a year since last win but several good efforts this term including latest third at Nottingham. Handicap becoming appealing so a live each-way contender.

Twice Listed placed as a two-year old and won twice this term, the latest at Yarmouth two starts back. Not beaten far into fourth last twice and off the same mark she is likely to run another solid race.

Unsuccessful this year although set some stern tests along the way. Handicap continues to fall and gets another 2lb back despite a close fourth as favourite at Wolverhampton latest. Surely big contender off this mark.

Landed a bit of a touch at Windsor in July but somewhat up and down since. Only 3lb higher than that win now and not totally out of this although slightly below par of late.

Chilean and Norwegian winner over sprint trips but well beaten in three starts here early in the year. Changed trainer now and visor fitted but hard to fancy on UK form.

Not seen on AW since April probably due to lower turf mark. Winner at Thirsk in July and a couple of good seconds since so returns to favoured surface in good enough form to expect a strong run.

Treble C&D winner who has eleven AW wins in all. Not beaten a rival last twice and fact latest was back on favoured surface at Wolverhampton particularly worrying.

Only beat one home on return from a short break at Kempton last time out. Back to last winning mark now but big improvement on last run required to take advantage.

As good as ever this summer onwards and won over C&D here two starts back. Good second latest at Wolverhampton despite extra 4lb and off that mark once more he looks a likely contender.

Not seen at all this season but was capable of some useful form when last seen but must have been difficult to train. No great record fresh and best watched at his age.

Course and distance winner last time out and looked to have a bit more than the 1¾L margin in hand. 6lb penalty sure to make life tougher but no surprise if she is still in the thick of things at the finish even 1lb out of the handicap.

Three time AW winner had a quiet 2017 with just the three races. Showed again that she prefers this surface with better effort latest at Kempton. Handicap mark attractive enough but probably better over 6f.

Won at Ayr back in August but only beaten one rival in two starts since. Poor effort at Wolverhampton latest and looks one of the least likely players based off that run.

Betting

Forecast

Atletico (11/4), Bowson Fred (5/1), Hilary J (13/2), Memories Galore (13/2), Landing Night (7/1), Green Door (11/1), Equimou (11/1), Fast Track (14/1), Dynamo Walt (14/1), Jameerah (16/1), Rich Again (20/1), Rosina (40/1), Ziggy Lee (66/1), Old Fashioned (100/1)

Verdict

BOWSON FRED can take advantage of a steadily falling handicap rating with his latest drop putting him on a very appealing mark. There are plenty of others here with claims and as a comfortable course and distance winner last time out Hilary J is one of the leading contenders. Also expected to run well is Landing Night who arrives in excellent form.
