8/1
Veteran that goes well here (five wins and seven places form 19 starts) and likes quick ground, so has that going for him. Takes a drop in grade too, which will help, and every chance of bouncing back from a moderate effort last time.

Not the most consistent but can win in this grade when it drops right for him, and almost got on the scoresheet under very similar conditions at Yarmouth last time. Repeat takes him close from 1lb higher, but no guarantees of that.

Two efforts at this track have seen him finish second both times, so acts fine on it, and has generally been in good form over the years. May find this ground a little lively, so a drop of rain would help his cause.

Has been in good form over fences this year, winning three of his last five starts in that sphere and looks nicely treated on his return to the Flat. Trip and ground fine, and has a nice habit of winning, so not hard to see him running well.

Came good at Yarmouth last September but that was under different conditions to today (shorter trip and slower ground) and was most disappointing when last seen out. Plenty to prove today and others preferred.

Yet to win in 14 starts, nearest he came was at Kempton over 2m last year (beaten a length) but mainly disappointing efforts since, including when made favourite at Chelmsford last time. Visor tried this time, but clearly a risky proposition.

First start for new yard after leaving Kevin Prendergast and worth a try at this trip as she's looked short of speed, but hardly looks thrown in for her debut on these shores today. Best watched unless market tells you otherwise.

Two wins to show for her 35 starts, both over shorter trips than today and she's taking a step up in trip after looking one paced in a few recent starts over 12f. Remains to be seen if that will work, but others make more appeal.

Better known for his exploits on Southwell's Fibresand over the years, but does have five turf wins to his name as well. In no great form at present though, and last two starts have left plenty to be desired.

Have to go back to 2016 to find last win, that coming over hurdles at Newton Abbot. Effective at this trip and ground won't be a problem, but simply doesn't win enough and the places may be the best he can hope for again.

Straw to cling to is that he went close in this race (under similar conditions) last year, but since then has put in a series of disappointing efforts. Coming back off a break here, but still very hard to fancy.

Has only beaten one horse home in his last four starts, takes a big step up in trip here and has no real form to speak of. Not hard to look elsewhere.

Got as close to the front as he's ever got at Market Rasen two starts back (chase) but is a longstanding maiden with little chance again here.

Betting

Forecast

Stynes (9/4), Bumble Bay (7/2), Strictly Art (6/1), Hallstatt (8/1), Purdey (8/1), Caracas (12/1), Cool Music (20/1), Spiritoftomintoul (20/1), Crakehall Lad (20/1), Seventii (25/1), The Lock Master (40/1), Ripper Street (100/1), L'es Fremantle (250/1)

Verdict

The ones to concentrate on are probably towards head of the handicap, although a case of sorts can be made for Bumble Bay, but STYNES knows where the winning post is and can add to his recent hauls here. He looks nicely treated and this track should suit. That comment also applies to old Hallstatt, who faces hie easiest task for a while at his favourite track and looks sure to run a good race. A bit of rain would bring Spiritoftomintoul into it as well.
