7/1

Has won twice in five starts but both wins have come on AW in 2016. May have needed the run on return at Thirsk but needs to prove he's as effective on turf.

Won at Lingfield in March before disappointing when favourite in a valuable apprentice handicap back at that course on AW Championships Finals Day. Fair effort in a competitive handicap at Wetherby when last seen and not dismissed now dropped 1lb.

Won three of his five starts in 2016 and has performed with credit in two Lingfield handicaps earlier in the year. Jockey booking looks significant with Moore taking over and may improve in a first-time hood on return.

14/1

Has won four of his 12 starts and placed in a competitive York handicap when last seen. Starts out for a new yard having been bought for 100,000 gns since his last run and not ruled out if ready on his return.

Not won since 2015 and well beaten at Wolverhampton when last seen. Well-handicapped on old form but best days likely behind him now and has a poor record when fresh in recent seasons.

Won his maiden over 1m2f but improved for a drop in trip to make it two wins from five starts at Newcastle last time over 1m. Will need more here but improvement likely and not ruled out.

5/2

Consistent sort who got his head back in front at Acsot last week in a competitive valuable 27-runner handicap. 3lb rise lenient for that success and he's an obvious player if he gets a pace to aim at.

Betting

Forecast

Ripp Orf (5/2), Pouvoir Magique (3/1), Surrey Hope (7/2), Wahash (7/1), Commander Cole (7/1), Flaming Spear (12/1), Zwayyan (14/1), Plutonian (16/1), Perkunas (20/1), Bronze Angel (25/1)

Verdict

WAHASH ran well last time out and is taken to land this having been dropped 1lb by the handicapper. Ripp Orf has to be of interest again after an impressive win last weekend at Ascot but he's not guaranteed a strong pace here with no confirmed front-runners in the line up. Plutonian is an each-way player from just 2lb higher than his last win.
