Gained an overdue second win two starts back and kept on well last time. Previous success came over this C&D and very consistent so should be competitive again.

Not on a bad mark on old form but has struggled recently for current stable including in claimers the last twice, Others preferred.

Showed promise for Michael Dods in 2016 but has been well beaten in two starts for current stable with the races coming nearly a year apart. Presumably has been difficult to train and remains hard to fancy.

Ran on strongly off a quick tempo to breakthrough on her sixth start. Likely to get race run to suit again and looks a leading contender off just 3lb higher.

Has dropped 3lb lower than last winning mark which came over this C&D. Has struggled of late and been well below that level on his last three runs and others look stronger candidates.

Up 3lb on turf for winning a weak looking Catterick handicap. On a tough mark now in that sphere and gets to race off lower on the AW. Yet to convince on this type of surface and others preferred.

Just two wins from 25 starts and last success came in April 2016. Ran a good race on his second run this season and has a case to be made for, however perhaps needs soft ground to produce his very best.

Has been often placed but just one win from 39 starts causes concern for win purposes. Disappointed last time and perhaps needs a furlong further.

Winner at Wetherby in April and perhaps needs similar underfoot conditions again in the future. Remains badly out of form since and best watched.

Best form on an AW surface has come on the fibresand and although dropping to a very handy mark once again looks vulnerable on balance of recent form.

Yet to convince on the AW and has better form on turf. Ran well last twice and on a good mark but needs to find improvement on this surface.

Ran third on only previous AW start at Wolverhampton behind Charleston Belle but is lightly-raced and could reverse the form as she showed again on turf last time that she's starting to click.

Betting

Forecast

Liamba (3/1), Charleston Belle (4/1), Duke Cosimo (13/2), Epeius (7/1), Santafiora (8/1), Avenue Of Stars (9/1), Danish Duke (9/1), Majorette (9/1), Pulsating (11/1), Mr Strutter (16/1), Decision Maker (16/1), Unnoticed (18/1), Another Angel (25/1), Racquet (33/1)

Verdict

Epeius has hit a good run of form, rarely runs a bad race and has a good opportunity to gain a third career success on this drop in class. However slight preference is for MAJORETTE who gained a first win at Lingfield, showing a nice change of gears. She clearly needs a fast pace to quicken off and is likely to get that again and the narrow winning margin means she may still be ahead of the handicapper. Liamba may improve past Charleston Belle but both have the form to be competitive again.
