Won a Doha Group 3 in February and won a handicap by a narrow margin at Haydock last time but will surely struggle off top weight in a much deeper contest and against better handicapped rivals.

More effective on AW than he is turf and his best form on turf is with cut in the ground. Well beaten at Windsor last time and likely to struggle.

Not the most consistent sort but early in the season seems to be the time to catch him. Won last time out and likely to find life tougher in a more competitive race from 4lb higher.

Won a Listed race at York last year but his handicap mark has suffered as a result and he would want to see softer ground than what's forecast to be of interest here.

Produced a fair fourth of 13 over C&D when last seen and won on his reappearance last year but there's a suspicion he may be struggling from his revised mark for the time-being.

Got an easy time of things on the front end when winning over this trip at Newbury last time out. Very little chance he will get such luck here and likely to struggle from his new mark.

Arrives here unbeaten and very impressive when recording a belated hat-trick over C&D on his return after missing all of 2017. Given time to recover from that so he's unlikely to bounce and has to be of interest here from an 8lb higher mark.

Won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes here in 2015 but that was a career best effort and he looks regressive at present. Will be primed for this for a yard that do well here but there's a suspicion the handicapper has him about right.

Yet to win from a mark this high but ran well in Listed class last time and a return to 6f looks set to suit. Not ruled out.

No match for a speedy sort around Chester last time including when runner-up to The Tin Man in a Group 1 over C&D. On a very lenient handicap mark at present and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back at some stage.

Generally regressive these days but he put up a fair effort when third of 19 in a competitive race at York last time. Has won at this course from a higher mark over 5f but more needed here.

Seemingly better on AW than turf in recent times. Has been in good form of late but has a habit of slow starting and wouldn't want to do that in this field.

Only beaten by a well-handicapped one in a remarkable bid for a six-timer at York last month. Left on the same mark for that run here and there's every chance he will be in the mix again.

Useful when able to dominate from the front, as seen in handicaps at York and Newmarket in recent times but he's unlikely to get away with those tactics here and he would probably prefer some cut in the ground.

Won a valuable Doncaster handicap last year and not beaten far next time out at York off this mark. Below par in two end of season efforts but he may have been over the top by that point. Tends to need his seasonal reappearance.

Has really found his form again since joining this yard and followed a decent run over C&D when second of 15 with two wins at Windsor. 5lb penalty makes life tougher but not without each-way claims in current form.

Won this race in impressive fashion last year and while he's not won since, he's only 1lb above that winning mark now. Will relish conditions and impossible to rule out.

Progressive sort who ran a big a race here over 7f when just beaten two lengths two starts back and followed up with a win at York last time. Drop back in trip a minor concern but can't be ruled out.

Won a Listed race at Doncaster last year but very inconsistent in recent times. Ryan Moore usually gets the best out of him so can't be entirely dismissed if on a going day.

In fine form towards the end of last year but entitled to need this on return from an absence (has never won fresh) and he may want a little bit of relief from the handicapper at present.

Could hardly have been more impressive when bolting up in a York handicap two starts back but failed to justify favouritism next time at Goodwood. Quite possibly still feasibly handicapped but his inconsistency is the concern.

He was starting to become very frustrating but finally put it all together on second start since a wind op at Doncaster last time. Warrants respect under a penalty if he can build on that effort.

Not won since winning a French Group 2 back in 2016 but there were signs of a return to form last time when not beaten far at Newmarket. Needs to build on that now and there's a suspicion he may want better ground to be seen at his best.

Unexposed and ran a good fourth last time out at Newmarket when only beaten 1L. May come on for that run and still unexposed so can't be ruled out here.

Won three times last year and was a model of consistency but he's looked held by the handicapper on his more recent starts. Likely to bounce back at some point but it's unlikely to be in a race as competitive as this.

Fresh may be the time to catch with his sole win for this yard coming at York on reappearance in 2017 and he nearly won on return this year. Disappointed last time though and others make more appeal.

Not won since winning a maiden but he's steadily working his way back to form after wind surgery. Looks on a reasonable mark and not one to rule out.

Verdict

It may be worth taking a chance on BLUE DE VEGA who ought to appreciate a step back up in trip here having been tried over 5f of late. It's hard to rule out Out Do who is only 1lb higher than last year's winning mark in this race while Foolaad should continue to run well after a gallant second at York last time.
  1. Blue De Vega
  2. Out Do
  3. Foolaad
