Absolutely thriving at present, and brought up hat-trick of wins when landing 'Dash' at Epsom on latest start. Up a further 7lb for that win, but this is actually a drop in class, and he's drawn to play a prominent role.

Reliable performer, and winner of corresponding event in 2016, and gained another course win in September. Better than the result at Haydock (6f) last time, and one to bear in mind again.

Has raced mainly at 7f, winning at Musselburgh last August, but seemed to benefit from drop in trip when a front-running sixth of 20 at York last time. Worth a try at 5f on that evidence.

Not quite the force of old, but goes well here, and bounced back to form when close second to Zac Brown over 6f last time out. Clearly still capable when things drop right, and folly to rule this veteran out.

Half-sister to recent Chesham Stakes winner Arthur Kitt out of a Queen Mary winner. Hasn't really progressed from a winning 2-y-o debut, and last two efforts have been disappointing, so needs to bounce back for fitting of a visor.

Winner of a novice at Beverley last July, and belatedly built on that when ½L third of 6 to Kodiac Express in handicap at Nottingham on reappearance. More required now, however.

Betting

Forecast

Tanasoq (13/8), Confessional (9/4), Powerallied (10/3), Bosham (7/1), Soldier's Minute (9/1), Wirral Girl (14/1), Formidable Kitt (20/1), Turanga Leela (33/1)

Verdict

TANASOQ is up in the weights, but down in class after landing the Dash at Epsom, so he's taken to follow up at the chief expense of the reliable Powerallied. Soldier's Minute has been racing over further, but looks worth a try at the minimum after showing speed at York last time, and is another to consider.
  1. Tanasoq
