Maiden in both codes but did run better over hurdles last time. First run back on the Flat for current stable (formerly Chris Wall) and returns on a very low mark that should put him in the reckoning.

Was trying this trip for the first time on start number 77 and saw it out well when a staying on third. Racing on a decent mark at present and should be a leading contender down in grade.

Returns to the Flat after two unsuccessful runs over hurdles and on a 7lb higher mark following her Brighton win in May. Had to be rigorously ridden there and although the rise in weight might not be a problem, the drop in trip may be against her.

Won back-to-back races last year including over this C&D and has now dropped to a 3lb lower mark. Returned to form at HQ when travelling well and staying on in a tougher race and should be involved if building on that.

Seventh start in a row at this track and was a C&D winner four starts back. Has struggled since of his revised mark and may need further assistance from the handicapper before a second win.

Has dropped back to only previous winning mark but out of form at present and yet to prove he needs this far. First-time cheekpieces added.

Ran a close second on quick ground last time but has ideally preferred a softer surface in the past. Should go well again off just 1lb higher than his last winning mark.

Finished a close second in this race last year off a 9lb mark and was a running on neck second over the C&D again last time. Is proving frustrating that he hasn't converted more of late but looks sure to go well again off this current mark.

Better effort but still well held second in a selling handicap last month. On a long losing run dating back to November 2013 and looks up against it again.

Betting

Forecast

Sussex Girl (9/4), Tyrsal (3/1), Lunar Deity (11/2), Zoffany Bay (6/1), Right About Now (9/1), Glorious Asset (9/1), Carraigin Aonair (11/1), Edge (14/1), Ataman (20/1), Let Me In (33/1)

Verdict

Tyrsal runs well over this C&D and can go close again in this race following his second last year. Ataman is well handicapped as he seeks a first success while Lunar Deity can build on a decent first try at this trip. Zoffany Bay and Edge are respected in an open race but preference is for SUSSEX GIRL who caught the eye staying on in stronger company last time and has ideal conditions.
