Mightily impressive when winning on Champions' Day at Ascot and just touched off in a Listed race at Newmarket when last seen (winner has been running well in Group class in Meydan). Should run well back in a handicap for last year's winning stable.

Doesn't get his head in front often but ran well in some Group races last season. Soft ground in his favour and quite possibly well treated off this mark so he can't be ruled out.

Unbeaten on the AW but form has been a little more inconsistent on turf. 5lb penalty for a recent Wolverhampton win shouldn't be an issue but plenty of others likely to be better suited to the forecast conditions.

Won this race back in 2015 but only won once in 42 starts since. Has often run well in Group company in that time and he's on a fair mark but he's been below form on AW of late and others hold strong claims.

Recorded a 3½L win in a Class 2 Handicap at Newmarket when last seen and the form of that race looks rock solid. 9lb higher mark to contend with and entitled to need this run but soft ground is no issue and he's capable of making his presence felt.

Produced a career best when placed behind Lord Glitters on Champions' Day at Ascot. Not quite in the same form since but he should strip fitter for a recent tune up at Kempton and shaped like he would come on for that run. Each-way claims.

Won last year's Cambridgeshire and seen just once on the Flat since when narrowly beaten in a muddling affair at Lingfield in December. Produces his best in big fields and can't be ruled out with excellent 7lb claimer taking the ride.

Narrow runner-up in the November handicap here over 1m4f. Raised 3lb for that though and he will need a career best significantly back down in trip but conditions are likely to be in his favour again here.

Winner on the AW last year but found out to some extent in pattern company last year and his handicap mark looks a little stiff for what he's actually achieved.

Seen at his best when held up off a strong pace but his most recent efforts have been disappointing on AW and the drop back in trip probably not in his favour. Others preferred.

Winner in France twice last year but form tailed off towards the back end of the season and handicap mark looks on the high side. Well beaten at Kempton last time out and others preferred.

Listed winner at Newmarket last year but consistency hardly his forte. Best recent efforts have come over further than this and he's best watched on that evidence.

Impressive winner of a competitive race at Newmarket when last seen and still very lightly raced. Likely he will go on improving for this yard throughout the campaign and capable of running a big race here.

Won a French maiden for Andre Fabre and eventually came good for this yard when winning a Newmarket Handicap on final start of 2017 season. Plenty to like about that effort and may be capable of better despite a 10lb hike in the weights.

Very inconsistent but useful on his day and he's a course winner. Well above his highest winning mark now though and hard to gauge whether he will be ready first up. Others likely to be better handicapped.

Barely ran a bad race throughout his 2017 campaign and 4lb rise perfectly fair for his most recent success at Leicester. Well suited to testing conditions and possibly more to come this year; he's an obvious player with Moore on for the first time.

Ran a cracker from a 3lb higher mark in this last year but form was below that level throughout the rest of the campaign. First-time up may be the time to catch him though and he's not ruled out, particularly with this eye-catching jockey booking.

Inconsistent performer and still 4lb above his highest winning mark, despite some disappointing efforts towards the end of last season. Ground and trip probably his optimum but unlikely to find required improvement at this stage in his career.

Impressive when winning an Ascot handicap over this trip in September. Only 5lb higher here and promising effort on his comeback run at Lingfield last time so can't be ruled out.

Formerly with John Gosden. Impressive on yard debut after a significant absence at Wolverhampton and probably bounced next time at Newcastle. Hard to access given he's so lightly raced for his age but may struggle to dominate these from the front.

Betting

Forecast

Lord Glitters (9/2), Addeybb (5/1), Fire Brigade (8/1), Leader Writer (9/1), Chelsea Lad (10/1), Mitchum Swagger (12/1), Dark Red (14/1), Ballard Down (14/1), Donncha (16/1), Big Country (16/1), Bravery (16/1), Gabrial (20/1), Grey Britain (20/1), Dolphin Vista (20/1), Repercussion (25/1), Via Via (25/1), Withernsea (25/1), Kings Gift (25/1), Stamp Hill (33/1), Not So Sleepy (33/1), Hayadh (50/1), London Protocol (50/1)

Verdict

David O'Meara won this last year with Bravery, but LORD GLITTERS would appear to be his first-string this time around and the form of his narrow defeat to Bravo Zolo has been franked multiple times since. The unexposed five-year-old should get a strong pace to aim at and he may be capable of taking this on his way to Group company throughout the rest of the season. Dolphin Vista is seen to best effect in big field handicaps and last year's Cambridgeshire winner should give another good account while Addeybb and Fire Brigade make up the shortlist given there improving profiles.
  1. Lord Glitters
  2. Addeybb
  3. Fire Brigade
