Losing run goes back three years and rating continues to fall. They rarely hang about in this race and that will test his unproven stamina. Top rider will require her considerable experience to nurse him home.

Former Group 3 winner over this trip on fast ground for Hughie Morrison, but that was three years ago and his three starts for this trainer suggest that he has plenty to prove at present.

Game front-runner who will keep finding more and stays further than this. Needs rain to take the sting out of the ground, but could be difficult to pass if conditions are favourable.

Well-backed on Newcastle return but down the field next time and has been off eight weeks since. Yet to make the frame in this class so clearly has work to do.

Appeared to be given too much to do in this 12 months ago when second to Tapis Libre. Improved considerbly thereafter when ridden more prominently and represents a trainer with a 3-7 record in this race.

Disappointing last time and has been given a break since. On a career high mark, but that may not matter if the forecast rain arrives.

Winner of two weak races at Newcastle but little wrong with his Chester form. Any rain getting into the ground would be detrimental, but handily weighted if things stay as they are.

Won three on the Flat in 2013 when rated in the 90s but his last three efforts on the level have been poor. Off the track 18 months and he probably has too many questions to answer.

Has been running to a fairly consistent level but one which is below the standard needed to win this.

Beat Mukhayyam in this 12 months ago under this rider off today's mark having been third 12 months earlier. This has clearly been the plan for 2018 but he may not enjoy the run of the race this time.

Without a win under any code for two years and 3lb above his last winning Flat mark. Not at his best over hurdles recently so difficult to recommend.

Found out on quicker ground last time and connections will be hoping the forecast rain arrives in time to alter current conditions.

Betting

Forecast

Pacify (9/2), Desert Ruler (9/2), Mukhayyam (5/1), Armandihan (13/2), Rayna's World (13/2), Star Of The East (7/1), Tapis Libre (10/1), Archippos (16/1), Mister Belvedere (20/1), Vent De Force (25/1), Always Resolute (33/1), Venue (33/1)

Verdict

The Easterby family have a good record in this and had a 1-2 a year ago when Tapis Libre beat MUKHAYYAM. The selection had to come from a long way back that day but went on to land two races when ridden more prominently. The selection handles any ground so his chances will improve considerably if it remains dry as Rayna's World, Star Of The East and Archippos all need rain. Desert Ruler has each-way claims, but Serena Brotherton's mount, Pacify, has to prove his stamina in what promises to be a strongly run race.
