Struggling for any sort of form at present and very disappointing when well beaten at Windsor last time. Capable on his day but very unreliable.

Has only won twice since 2014 and didn't beat a rival home at the Curragh last time out. Has been below form this year and hard to fancy at present.

C&D winner last time out and there could be more to come for this yard. 6lb higher here but plenty to like about the way he won that day and a reproduction of that run should see him go close.

Habitual slow starter who was only seen once last year and has been below par in two efforts this campaign. Best form is on AW and hard to fancy at present.

Arrives here bidding for a hat-trick after his win at Brighton last time out. The way he won didn't suggest he had a whole lot left so may struggle in a deeper race here up 4lb in the handicap.

10/3

Progressive three-year-old who has really slipped into gear of late with wins at Pontefract and Doncaster over slightly further. Produced a new career-best in his latest victory showing a sharp turn of foot and should run well.

Really struggling for a ny sort of form this season and has been struggling to break cleanly from the stalls. Hard to fancy until that trait has gone.

Just has one win from 16 starts but running well in defeat of late and he's consistent at least. Yard in good form and can't be ruled out.

Betting

Forecast

Midsummer Knight (3/1), Shaheen (10/3), Leo Minor (9/2), Gracious John (11/2), Duke Of Firenze (6/1), Arzaak (10/1), Compas Scoobie (16/1), Shamshon (16/1), Outrage (20/1)

Verdict

LEO MINOR was a course and distance winner last time out and it would be no surprise to see Robert Cowell unlock more improvement from this sprinter. Shaheen was impressive last time out and should go well again while Midsummer Knight is a consistent sort who should be thereabouts.
  1. Leo Minor
  2. Shaheen
  3. Midsummer Knight
