40/1

Not seen since winning a Kempton maiden over 7f in November 2015 when in the hands of John Gosden before returning to the track following a two-year hiatus. Will come on for the run but still up against it here.

Course winner that has won over this trip but has failed to beat a single runner home in his last two starts and the veteran has work to do despite dropping in trip.

Consistent and solid performances over the spring and summer months including a win at start at Killarney over 1m in July. Not seen since September but worthy of a market check.

Won once on turf when trained by George Baker in England, having started his racing career in Ireland. Better form of four starts here has come in two starts over 7f and can hit the frame in this company.

C&D winner in November, staying on powerfully to lead on the line, beaten since but not disgraced including last time out over C&D 2¾L behind Storm Ryker last month. Another bold show looks likely.

Popular veteran last seen winning for trainer Henry Candy in October 2015. Not disgraced on comeback run here over 6f and can be expected to perform better over winning trip.

Winner over 7f in claiming company for Richard Hannon last March. Held in a seller on final appearance for yard before a 15L on return to the track on stable debut last month. Others preferred.

Has run well all three starts here for this yard, twice going very close over this trip. Has a good draw weighted to go close.

Victorious on handicap debut over 1m here in December before finishing third of 10 beaten 2L off a 3lb higher mark. Capable of another big run.

Lone win for Tom Dascombe came over 7f at Chester. Not disgraced beaten 6¾L on stable debut here in December before blowing his chance at the start at this track in January over 6f. Will need to improve to figure.

Has four wins to his name here and was only 3L behind Master Speaker over 6f in January before a ½L defeat over the same trip last month when second of 14. Step up in trip doesn't look ideal.

Betting

Forecast

Arbourfield (7/2), Mr Ormsby (5/1), Alcatraz (11/2), Allegio (7/1), Grey Danube (7/1), Fashaar (8/1), Lily's Prince (8/1), Dinkum Diamond (16/1), Arc Royal (20/1), Russian Soul (22/1), Zeeyalater (25/1), Amanaat (40/1), Willwams (50/1)

Verdict

If Grey Danube can grab the lead from stall 6 in the early stages it could make for a fascinating contest and is taken to hold on for a place at least. With the likes of Willwams and Allegio also up with the early speed advantage could fall to the likes of second over this trip last time out, Mr Ormsby and C&D winner ARBOURFIELD to battle for the victory.
  1. Arbourfield
  2. Mr Ormsby
