Mostly consistent on the AW over the winter, has been off since February and return to turf on a good mark if able to reproduce C&D from July last year when denied a head from 6lb higher mark.

Inconsistent sprinter. A fast 5f probably a bit sharp for him and others preferred here after failing to beat a rival home in the 'Dash' at Epsom earlier in the month.

Capable performer, with four of his five wins having come in this grade. Only beaten 1L over 6f at Goodwood last time, drop in trip helps and last year's winner needs respecting back here.

Hit a real purple patch when joining this yard last year winning his first three starts and looking a progressive sort. Improved for reappearance when just collared over 6f at Windsor (good to firm) last month and suited dropping to 5f now.

Just one win in 24 starts for this yard and running below form of late. First-time blinkers (discarded) didn't appear to help at Epsom in the 'Dash' recently. Has plenty to work on.

Won twice last season and goes on just about any ground. Just the one run this season however and has tended to need a few runs to reach her peak, so others are preferred.

Experienced seven-year-old, won over 5f at Beverley in May on good to firm and can be forgiven defeat at York in Class 2 even since (raced from 2lb out of the handicap). Back in calmer waters now.

Seemingly no excuse when picked off late at Bath (5½f, firm) last time having slightly missing the break. Three-time winner over this trip in 2017, just 2lb higher than previous win-mark.

Made a successful start in handicaps last year on the back of a maiden win over 6f and she's shown form in a better grade than this making her look capable off this mark. Badly interfered with last time out back from a break; better expected.

Lightly-raced Dubawi filly, made pleasing start to life in handicaps last time at Nottingham (6f, soft) when 2½L third of seven. Down in trip and meets better ground, capable of getting involved and may improve.

Hasn't won since November 2016 and despite falling mark he doesn't jump off the page as a winner waiting to happen based on recent AW efforts. Was second in this last year.

Forecast

Island Of Life (3/1), Rio Ronaldo (5/1), Shamshon (5/1), Wiley Post (7/1), Jashma (15/2), Delagate This Lord (8/1), Madame Bounty (8/1), Roundabout Magic (12/1), Royal Mezyan (14/1), Desert Ace (14/1), Kasbah (16/1), Babyfact (22/1), Super Julius (33/1)

Verdict

RIO RONALDO won this even last year and comes back now rated just 2lb higher. He put in a good effort last time at Goodwood over 6f and the strong travelling sort shouldn't be underestimated back down in distance at a track where he goes well. Delagate This Lord was worn down late on at Windsor last time out and there could be more to come on third start back. Likewise Wiley Post may go well returned to minimum while Desert Ace should find this less taxing than the York race he contested last time. Island Of Life is unexposed and a potential improver for William Haggas.
