A winner on the Rowley course here over 5f when he hit a purple patch back in 2015. Only won once since then and while running well in defeat at present, others appeal as better handicapped.

Sole win came in a Newbury maiden over 7f on fast ground. Largely disappointed last season but produced an improved effort when fourth of 13 back at Newbury on return from an absence on first start since a wind op. May come on for that run.

His more recent wins have come on AW but he's effective on turf and ran well at Ripon last time over this trip on fast ground. This is tougher but back below his last winning handicap mark and hard to rule out.

C&D winner but not won since winning a Group 3 at Ascot in 2015. Ran well here on return in April and while disappointing in two starts since, he's becoming dangerously well-handicapped. Booking of Moore is eye-catching and not ruled out.

Sole win in 2017 came at Chepstow but has run well in defeat twice this campaign and only just touched off over this trip the last twice. Up another 2lb doesn't help but can't be ruled out.

A winner at Kempton from a 6lb higher mark just over a year ago. Hasn't shown enough this season though to suggest he's about to return to the winners' enclosure.

Two wins from 12 starts. Down markedly in trip here and hard to fancy on debut for his new yard. Wears a first-time tongue-tie.

Course winner who won over this trip at Thirsk last time on debut for his yard. 5l higher in a tougher race demands more though.

Won off this mark on the Rowley course back in 2016. won just once last year when winning a Lingfield handicap in December but she's disappointed twice since and not the most consistent type.

Arrives bidding for a hat-trick after wins at Windsor and Goodwood. Has won here on the Rowley course from a higher mark but perhaps wants a bit of ease in the ground to be seen at his best.

Career best effort to win at Chepstow last time but got an easy lead that day and finds herself in a tougher race here from a 6lb higher mark.

Betting

Forecast

Eastern Impact (7/2), Baron Bolt (4/1), Gunmetal (9/2), Ultimate Avenue (5/1), Solar Flair (12/1), Bungee Jump (14/1), Double Up (16/1), Tomily (16/1), Show Stealer (20/1), Englishman (33/1), Burguillos (40/1)

Verdict

ULTIMATE AVENUE may have not won since his maiden success at Newbury but his return from an absence last time was encouraging and he may take a step forward from that run here. Eastern Impact is very well-handicapped on old form and can't be ruled out while Baron Bolt arrives in good form and has place claims.
