Given a tough ask at York and back to the same grade he previously finished a close second in at Nottingham. Only win came in impressive fashion over this C&D and only 6lb higher at present. Has to be respected.

Twice a C&D winner and comes back to a trip all his best form is over. Now 1lb lower than last winning mark and returned to form with a good third last start. Looks a leading contender.

Formerly trained by Andrew Balding and was well beaten on first start for his new stable. Steps up in distance and needs to find improvement for it.

Missed the whole of last year and has been tailed off in all three starts this campaign for his new trainer. Hard to make a case for.

Little promise in three starts for Scott Dixon last year and now makes stable, handicap and seasonal debut. Best watched at present.

15-race maiden but ran his best race for a while when keeping on over a furlong shorter. Seemed to improve for the extra distance and this increased test of stamina should only help.

Won over the C&D in 2016 but just one success since. Has been falling significantly in the weights and showed up much better off 2lb higher last time. Apprentice rode a winner last month and should be competitive.

Improved for a drop to the mile and a switch to this surface and is still open to progress. Could be involved but needs to show he needs this far.

Well beaten in all five starts to date including twice on this surface. Hard to see her getting involved on the evidence so far.

Betting

Forecast

Orobas (2/1), Majestic Stone (11/4), Exclusive Waters (7/2), Ideal Angel (8/1), Polar Forest (14/1), New Britain (16/1), Silken Moonlight (33/1), Bay Watch (33/1), Onda District (40/1), Lady Grigio (40/1)

Verdict

OROBAS was given a tough ask from out of the handicap at York and will appreciate both the drop in grade and return to this track. Likewise Exclusive Waters returns to his ideal conditions and should be a contender along with a back to form Polar Forest who is on a very attractive mark. Majestic Stone is getting to the sort of distance that can help in the quest for a first success.
