7/2

Raised 3lb for latest back to form win on the AW and should be competitive again back over a C&D he won over last May.

Ended last season with two wins including over the C&D. Struggled on her reappearance off a 3lb higher mark but could easily improve for the run and remains lightly-raced.

Well beaten on both starts this campaign and best form has come on an easier surface. Best watched at present.

Dropping down in the weights but has disappointed on his last two runs and untried on quick ground.

9/2

Breakthrough victory on the AW last start and did so with a bit in hand so 4lb raise is not insurmountable. Needs to handle a different surface but can go close again.

Just 3lb higher than last winning mark and probably needed first run back. Should be fitter but all his best form is with give in the ground.

Plummeting in the weights but has shown little for current stable and hard to make a case for on any recent form.

Racing consistently on AW and remains on a competitive mark. Not always straightforward and visor retained from last solid run but touch more required here.

Betting

Forecast

See The Sea (3/1), Bayston Hill (7/2), Lady Valdean (4/1), Spiritual Man (9/2), Love And Be Loved (7/1), Manchego (8/1), Edge (10/1), Let Me In (14/1), Pack It In (25/1)

Verdict

An open contest with Bayston Hill likely to make a bold bid off top-weight following his recent win. See The Sea probably needed her seasonal reappearance and should be more competitive now for her leading stable. Preference is for SPIRITUAL MAN who got an overdue maiden win showing that this is his ideal distance and it's worth taking a chance he can handle this ground as he looks ahead of the handicapper at present.
  1. Spiritual Man
  2. Bayston Hill
  3. See The Sea
