13/2

At the veteran stage of his career but has been running well from marks of 70-71. Struggled off this higher mark last time when easy to back but he is 3-5 in this grade at this venue.

Not won since he was with Kevin Ryan at the end of 2016. Not far off his best on his return from seven months off and should give a good account if this does not come too quickly.

Winning for the 13th time when successful on firm ground over this distance at Nottingham in June. Work to do having finished well beaten subsequently.

Narrow Bath winner who has not been disgraced in either start since. The ground was reportedly too hard last time and apprentice on board has had eight winners this year.

Losing run is starting to get to a worrying level now and looks to be struggling to find his form at the moment. Tried over 5f here last time and young rider is seeking her first winner.

The longer trip was not entirely to blame when running below expectations here last time. More likely it was the fast conditions and a lower mark gives him the opportunity to bounce back providing the going remain no quicker than good.

Won twice over 5f in May when ridden up with the pace. Not the same force since over this longer trip when ridden with more restraint.

Winner of two races off a mark of 54 last month. The latest came despite hanging right as he was feeling the ground. Has been given time to recover and now needs a career best to complete the hat-trick off a more taxing weight.

Opened his account in a class 7 contest (6f) at Lingfield in February. Has campaigned over various trips since, but today's suits him best and he is back to that winning mark.

Not the most reliable despite what look to be some consistent looking form figures. Tends to need quite strong handling and she is out of the handicap.

No win and just a handful of places from 34 starts to show for his efforts. Well-beaten on most starts recently (over both 6f and 7f) and appears to have little chance of ending his drought.

Betting

Forecast

Essaka (9/2), Yogiyogiyogi (9/2), Monarch Maid (6/1), Kinglami (13/2), Shovel It On (8/1), Perfect Symphony (17/2), Mooroverthebridge (9/1), Major Valentine (14/1), Whitecrest (14/1), Major Assault (14/1), Fantasy Justifier (14/1), Jacksonfire (25/1)

Verdict

Most of these can be considered likely to win if on one of their better days. The booking of Finley Marsh for FANTASY JUSTIFIER looks a significant move. Ron Harris has his team going well at present and his seven-year-old gets a healthy 9lb pull with Mooroverthebridge for a 1½L beating in May. Shovel It On will need perfect conditions, whilst Kinglami needs to put a poor run last week behind him. Essaka faces a stiffer test in pursuit of a hat-trick having been reassessed, but Perfect Symphony gave positive signals on his return and can reach a place at least..
