10/1

Has only had two AW starts, acquitting himself well on both occasions, one of them being over C&D. Looks well handicapped on his turf form of 12-months ago, but recent efforts below that level and has a fair bit to prove now.

11/4

Dual winner on Dundalk's Polytrack (7f/1m), the 7f success being his most recent, and from this mark. Not at that level since, mainly on turf. Has to prove he acts on Tapeta and if he does, he couldn't be ruled out from this mark.

Sole win was over this trip at Kempton in a maiden, on his second start back in 2015. Yet to race on this surface. Has struggled this year on turf and plummeted in the weights as a result. Blinkers called for here, but lots to prove.

Scored over 6f at both Kempton and Goodwood for Dean Ivory. Well held on only previous try over this far. Changed hands for 2,500gns and joined current trainer since last run in October. On a handy mark if fully firing. Has won when fresh.

40/1

Showed promise in all three maiden runs for Kevin Prendergast, but this £100,000 yearling changed hands for just £3,000 in November. Makes debut for this trainer on a stiff enough mark, but a market check could be wise.

49-7OR: 63CD
5/1

Triple C&D winner, though the best of those was from 6lb lower than today. Beaten less than 2L from this mark at Lingfield last time, however, so entitled to respect and certainly appears to have each-way claims.

49-4OR: 60CD
8/1

Dual C&D scorer. 4lb higher than the more recent of those wins in February. Ran well back here last time when beaten just 1¼L from 1lb higher. A bit more needed, but entitled to enter calculations from a good draw.

9/4

Has shown a bit of improvement in her two most recent runs, going down narrowly at Chelmsford in May and not disgraced here over C&D (first-time cheekpieces, now discarded) last time. Up 5lb, so more needed but not ruled out.

39-1OR: 65
12/1

0-8, but encouraging that the only two occasions that he has been in the money was here last year. Would have a squeak from this mark based on either of those, but recent efforts uninspiring and he has a fair bit to prove.

Betting

Forecast

Dutch Monarch (9/4), Fashaar (11/4), Viola Park (5/1), Herm (8/1), Art Echo (10/1), Handsome Bob (12/1), Artscape (25/1), Marylebone (28/1), Mabaady (40/1), Pablow (40/1)

Verdict

The majority of the field have a bit to prove coming into this, including ARTSCAPE, who is the selection given that he is unexposed over this trip and looks to be on a handy mark if he can go well now freshened up, as he did last year. Dutch Monarch is a potential threat, as is Fashaar, with Herm and Viola Park two others to consider.
  1. Artscape
  2. Herm
  3. Dutch Monarch
