5/6

Has been doing well in handicaps, winning four of his last six, including here over 7f (soft) last time. Form of that race franked by runner-up winning Victoria Cup on Saturday, so he looks to have decent claims. Trip/ground fine.

Better known for his successes over 7f than this trip, but recorded his first win over 1m at Southwell in January when 6lb lower. That ended a lengthy drought and he has mainly been back in better form since, including here last time. Not ruled out.

Won a 0-85 over C&D (good to firm) this time last year when just 1lb lower and went close from a higher mark twice afterwards. Has been in good form on the All Weather in recent months and handicapper has given her a chance here.

Was dropped in trip to 7f for a Doncaster maiden last time when 200-1 and ran a much better race than he had previously shown he was capable of. Extra furlong looks just about right for him and he is interesting with the champion booked.

1-16 so far, that win coming at Doncaster (7f, good) from 1lb higher in 2016. Went very close here from 2lb higher over C&D last May (when fresh) and not ruled out if able to hit that level again on his reappearance.

Has won 4-15 on the All Weather but is yet to make the frame from five starts on turf. Is on a good mark here based on his efforts away from turf, but as last time's run showed he still has plenty to prove on the green stuff.

Betting

Forecast

Salt Whistle Bay (5/6), Desert Frost (3/1), Bint Dandy (6/1), Majestic Moon (6/1), Fashaak (15/2), Gibeno (10/1), Ifwecan (10/1), Ourmullion (14/1)

Verdict

SALT WHISTLE BAY has been rising steadily through the ranks for some time and can continue to do so here, after the form of his last time win at the track was boosted at Ascot on Saturday. Gibeno is an interesting handicap newcomer after a significantly improved performance last time, while Majestic Moon and Bint Dandy are others with chances in a reasonably competitive event.
