15/8

Has hit a purple patch with wins over this trip here and at Nottingham, the latest in decisive fashion. Carries a double penalty, but is taking decent strides forward and has to be strongly considered again.

Goes on any ground and is never too far away from his next win. The last of those came at Beverley last month, when 2lb lower. Ran well again back there from this mark last time and is entitled to enter calculations.

Scored over C&D (soft) in May from 5lb lower and went close back here from this mark (good) two starts later. Has remained competitive and again he returns with each-way claims.

99-9OR: 72CD
4/1

Recorded one of his 13 wins over C&D in 2014 and is at his best on good/fast ground. Arrives on the back of success at Beverley (5f) last month, for which he has gone up 7lb. Has plenty of winning form from higher marks, so follow up not ruled out.

Scored over 5½f (good to firm) at Wetherby in June, from 9lb lower. Has been at least as good as that in all four starts since, despite not winning. Each-way claims again, but needs to eek out a bit more for another win.

14/1

Won over 6f at Carlisle (good to firm) last month, when 3lb lower. Has been unable to reproduce such an effort at either Catterick (7f) or Doncaster (6f) since. Worth a try over a stiff 5f, but stable quiet and he has it to prove.

9/1

Five-time winner at 6f/7f, with all the turf ones being on good to firm. Went close over this trip at Thirsk in May, when 1lb lower, so looks to have the speed to make an impact here. Interesting.

Betting

Forecast

Classic Pursuit (15/8), Bondi Beach Boy (4/1), Foxtrot Knight (9/2), Canford Bay (11/2), Maureb (9/1), Desert Ace (12/1), Extrasolar (14/1)

Verdict

Maureb is interesting now dropped back in trip, but CLASSIC PURSUIT arrives in tremendous form and is difficult to oppose, despite his double penalty. Desert Ace is respected, while Bondi Beach Boy also has claims.

  2. Desert Ace
  3. Maureb
