4/1

Won on his final start for Heather Main in a Wolverhampton claimer and followed up on is debut for this trainer in an Ayr handicap (1m, good), when 5lb lower. Has had wind surgery since his latest run. Not ruled out.

20/1

Best over this trip and on fast ground. Without a win since 2016, but has not seen much action since then and is now back below that winning mark. Well held on both starts for this trainer, but would be interested if supported.

11/2

Won over C&D (soft) in May, when 3lb lower. Has only run to anything like that level of form once since, and been badly out of sorts on his last two outings. Looks up against it unless he can spark a revival.

109-7OR: 80D
8/1

Races over his optimum trip and is not ground dependent. 8lb lower today than his last win, at Ayr last season. Looks well handicapped on that basis and also on his Ripon run from 4lb higher in June. Claims.

Has managed just two wins since 2014, though both of them were from higher marks than this. Should not be far away if he can run to the best of his current ability.

11/2

Scored over C&D (good) last year from 1lb lower. Sluiced up at Musselburgh (1m1f, good) in June, but was hammered by the handicapper, putting paid to his last two starts. More needed, but not written off.

68-2OR: 58CD
6/1

Scored over C&D (good) in 2015 and acts on good to firm. Not disgraced from this mark at Hamilton two starts ago, but otherwise not easy to fancy him on this season's form.

Betting

Forecast

Alejandro (7/4), First Flight (4/1), Rockwood (11/2), Mutarakez (11/2), Pumaflor (6/1), Two For Two (8/1), Fingal's Cave (10/1), Ginger Jack (20/1)

Verdict

First Flight is entitled to consideration on his return from wind surgery, while Ginger Jack is on a handy mark and with his stable having been in decent form for a while, he would be interesting if the money comes. However, TWO FOR TWO is well handicapped and although not always consistent, he has shown enough to suggest that he can make this race his.
