Has two wins over C&D as well as a head defeat, and he should do well back at this course off a mark which should be workable for him.

Has run well on both of his starts so far this campaign and has also made his mark at a higher level than this. Draw possibly not ideal but has the form to go close.

Not disgraced on seasonal debut at Wolverhampton last time out in a much smaller field. This is obviously tougher, but his apprentice rider's 3lb claim should help.

Not far behind El Astronaute over C&D last time and up just 1lb for that run. Could run another big race and is closely matched with a few others here on form.

Beat several of these over C&D last week. Up 3lb for that but has run well on his other starts this season as well, so no surprise to see him run another big race.

Failed to play a major role in his most recent starts, and higher in the weights than at any of his wins in British handicaps. Others look more favourably treated.

Still 12lb above his most recent winning mark, but beaten just a length at Thirsk last time out, and though this is more competitive he's more than worth his place in this line-up.

Not far away in a Group 3 two starts ago, and though he was slightly disappointing last time out he should do better here in a first-time hood.

Behind a few of these last week over C&D in a race won by El Astronaute. Dropped 1lb and tends to go well here, so needs considering once again.

Ran well at Lingfield last time out when only narrowly beaten. This is obviously tougher and he's up 2lb but he's shown in the past he's up to competing at this level.

Behind many of these over C&D last week, and needs to improve on that effort down just 1lb if he's to play a hand here.

Could improve for his uneventful comeback run at Redcar last time out on his second start, but will need to off the same mark on second run after wind surgery.

Some bits of form in sprint handicaps but needs to take a big step up to get involved in this highly competitive contest.

Ran well behind El Astronaute over C7D last time out. Up just 1lb and could easily win a competitive sprint of this nature, especially from a favourable draw.

Yet to really fire in three races so far this season (has beaten a total of two horses home), but would have a chance on his best form from last year.

Drops in trip having won over 6f at Ascot earlier in the month. Up 6lb which might not make things particularly easy for him here.

All career wins have come in much weaker races than this and though he has run fairly well in competitive races in the past he still needs a step up to get involved in this.

A last time out winner at Beverley, but raised 7lb for that and still has to race from out of the handicap. Others appeal more.

Betting

Forecast

Major Jumbo (13/2), Duke Of Firenze (7/1), Dakota Gold (7/1), Carlton Frankie (8/1), Edward Lewis (17/2), Final Venture (9/1), El Astronaute (10/1), Mr Lupton (11/1), Evergate (12/1), Shepherd's Purse (20/1), Fendale (20/1), Batten The Hatches (20/1), Goldream (20/1), Jumira Bridge (25/1), Boundsy (25/1), Quick Look (33/1), Excessable (33/1), Desert Ace (33/1), East Street Revue (33/1)

Verdict

El Astronaute holds obvious claims after his win here last week while Mr Lupton should go well having run well at Newmarket earlier in the month. Preference, though, is for MAJOR JUMBO. Not far behind El Astronaute when third here in that race last week, he's up just 1lb and can continue his recent good form by getting his head back in front here. Dakota Gold and and Carlton Frankie are others with claims.

  2. El Astronaute
