9/2

Won on seasonal reappearance at Doncaster in May and looked to be coming to the boil again when not beaten far at Epsom last time out. Drawn to attack, but worry is overall strike rate (just 3-42). May find something too strong late on.

Beaten a length or less last three starts and is knocking on the door. No problem with quick ground and a stiff 6f could be up his street. Has a poor draw to cheat but this isn't beyond him, and could go well.

Form has a very patchy look to it, useful when on song and only just behind Watchable at Doncaster in May. Not sure this track will suit either and although chances on a going day, carries too many risks at present.

Put a couple of mediocre efforts behind him when bouncing back to form at Carlisle last time, almost making all but caught late on. However, that was over a mile and in lesser grade, so new questions to answer here. Others preferred.

In cracking form at present and clearly this C&D suits, having won twice over it recently. Came clear when winning here last week and a very obvious chance of following up under a 6lb penalty. Looks the one to beat.

New yard immediately found the key to him when successful on seasonal debut at Hamilton last time, sticking well to the task and this uphill finish should hold no terrors. Well drawn and possibility of further improvement, so has to be considered.

Twice a winner from 14 starts here, and came right back to form when successful at Haydock last time. However, all wins in lower class and may find others quicker here, so places may be the best he can hope for.

Betting

Forecast

Highly Sprung (9/4), Dalton (4/1), Watchable (9/2), Raselasad (11/2), Private Matter (8/1), Ower Fly (10/1), Mr Orange (14/1), Huntsmans Close (20/1)

Verdict

Watchable will give it a go from the front but almost always finds something to beat him, and in this case, it could be the fast-improving HIGHLY SPRUNG, who dotted up here last week and has every chance of completing the hat-trick. Ower Fly has place chances if they go quick enough up front, and Dalton is another that appears to be improving at the right time.
