16/1

Course winner who has already been successful in three handicaps this season looking generally progressive. Needs a poor run at Ascot forgiving to enter the argument here (higher grade than usual); handicapper may have him now.

6/1

Very quirky sort who often travels well but doesn't often deliver and that was emphasised by his run last time at Chester where he failed to go past the leader. Now getting on for a year since his last win and will need a perfect ride to win.

Scored on his initial run for this yard in a Yarmouth handicap over 1m (turf debut) off a 7lb lower mark partnered by today's rider. Ran to a similar level despite failing to win on his most recent start but both those runs makes him a player here.

Winner of this contest last year off the back of an Epsom win this time around he comes here off a Sandown victory. Had fallen to his last winning mark (up just 2lb here) and given a strongly-run race will make a bold bid to repeat his win.

Unreliable sort who has plenty of quirks and needs to put his best foot forward to win this although he's becoming attractively handicapped if he could be trusted. Ran way below form last time and clearly comes with risks despite the attractive mark.

An AW winner over this trip last year he's for the most part run with credit since then and has dropped 4lb below that winning mark. Both wins this year have come on the AW (better for comeback run) and not out of this back on turf.

Should need no introduction around here with six course wins to his name; has already won over C&D this year. Continued in good heart since that victory scoring again at Newmarket and scheduled to be competitive off this mark; rider knows him well.

Consistent sort who has run with credit since his AW win in April over 6f but there must be a question mark against him over this trip. Tried over this trip in the past but much better over shorter and others appeal more.

Three-time C&D winner who has run well at the track this year without winning (42420) with his winning performance coming when springing a surprise upped in grade at Ascot. Ran well in the same company (not well placed) last time; place chances.

10/1

Three-time course winner (twice over C&D) who always goes from the front performing well (supported) last time out at Chepstow. Not guaranteed to get an easy ride upfront here but hovering around her last winning mark and not out of this.

Blinkers on for the first-time he benefitted from an enterprising ride when successful at Windsor over this trip (tried over further previous three starts). That was very much a career-best and unlikely to be allowed the same latitude this time.

Betting

Forecast

Enigmatic (4/1), Lord Clenaghcastle (5/1), Zlatan (6/1), Buzz Lightyere (13/2), Optimum Time (7/1), Pour La Victoire (10/1), Andalusite (10/1), Pastoral Player (16/1), Pendo (16/1), Harry Beau (16/1), Tigerwolf (25/1)

Verdict

The one element of this race that shouldn’t be lacking is a decent pace with the likes of Harry Beau and Andalusite looking to go forward and with a good pace almost guaranteed last year’s winner LORD CLENAGHCASTLE is taken to follow-up arriving as he did last year on the back of a victory; he’s only off a mark 2lb higher than last year. Course specialists Pour La Victoire and Buzz Lightyere both come into this in good form and have to be respected while Enigmatic still looks on a dangerous mark off the back of a break. Zlatan should be an ideal sort for a race like this but he just can’t be relied on at the business end of the race.
  1. Lord Clenaghcastle
