10/1

Top weight but has eased 2lb over the last two starts where he hasn't run by any means badly. Handles the surface and the return to this trip should not be an issue.

All three career wins have come on the AW but has failed to reach a place in four starts on turf. 1lb lower than narrow defeat on AW at Wolverhampton last time but seemingly not the same on turf.

16/1

Two wins to his name but both on artificial surfaces and doesn't look as good on turf being 0-6 and failing to even reach a place. Entitled to improve for seasonal reappearance but others make more appeal.

Raised 7lb having won with plenty in hand over C&D last time out having hardly hinted such a performance was in the offing. Good apprentice claims 3lb back so has a big chance if in the same mood.

Three runs in maidens on soft and heavy ground last term and looked at home on better ground when decent fourth on handicap bow at Wetherby. Could be more to come so with stable in good form has to be considered.

Struggling when short of room over C&D last time but ran nicely here the time before. Improved display not ruled out off a 1lb lower mark.

8/1

Stepped up from 7f to 9f last time and scored nicely in five-runner affair. 2lb higher but worth a try over this extra furlong and market support would be a very good sign.

68-9OR: 51

22 runs since his last win which came over 7f and has never really suggested that this three furlong longer trip is his optimum. Fair effort atest over extended mile here but there are stamina doubts.

38-9OR: 63
7/1

8-race maiden who drops back from 1m4f last few starts but hasn't indicated his winning turn is just around the corner. Yard continues in fine form but he has something to prove.

Seven-race maiden who hadn't shown much until better effort last time when solid third over this C&D. Likely to set the pace and then do his best to hang on.

Didn't beat a horse in first three starts and only marginally improved last two outings. 9lb out of the handicap and appears to have little chance at this level.

Betting

Forecast

Long Socks (11/4), Broken Force (4/1), My Fantasea (6/1), Tommy Shelby (7/1), Ventura Gold (8/1), Fleetfoot Jack (10/1), Berlusca (11/1), Quoteline Direct (12/1), Peace And Plenty (16/1), Captain Revelation (40/1), Snoop (66/1)

Verdict

BERLUSCA has been around a while but had been struggling prior to running away with an event over C&D last time. Despite his higher mark he should again go very well. Long Socks is unexposed and may be the right side of the handicapper having run creditably at Wetherby, and top weight Fleetfoot Jack is by no means out of it having run a couple of decent races of late. Broken Force and Ventura Gold are others worth a second glance.
