3/1

Won three times in French provinces at up to 1m4f, and popped up on British debut at Yarmouth last week, staying on well having been solidly suported to a handicap over nearly 1m4f. Extra half mile now and has 6lb penalty but is interesting.

Five AW wins to his name but pulled up here on only previous visit when never travellng well. Returns from two month break but has been out of form for a year and looks up against it.

Barely run a bad race all year and got his reward over two miles at Lingfield AW in June off 4lb lower mark than here. Went close over this C&D in March off higher mark so may not be far away once again.

Hasn't won on the Flat since 2012 when trained in Germany by Andreas Wohler. Returns from 99 day break but on all known form may struggle to see out this trip.

Last win came over 1m6f at Wolverhampton in February 2016 but went close here over similar trip in the spring and certainly worth another try at two miles having scored at this trip at Kempton five years ago.

Still a little unexposed on the Flat and might have been a shade unlucky after a slow start when runner-up over C&D a couple of weeks ago. Never showed at Catterick last week but has to have a bit of a chance.

Very one paced Sea The Stars maiden gelding who ran third here last time. Is tried in a first-time visor to try hurry him along but tends to do things at his own speed.

2-32 but hasn't won for four years when successful twice at 7f. Placed here in the past at 1m6f, but probably doesn't stay a truly run two miles and others make far more appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Final Choice (6/4), Esprit De Baileys (3/1), Tynecastle Park (6/1), Fitzwilly (6/1), Planetoid (8/1), Spiritoftomintoul (14/1), What A Party (20/1), Slowfoot (25/1)

Verdict

FITZWILLY is guaranteed to stay and is in reasonable form so might prove good enough with questions marks hanging over most of his rivals at this staying trip. Top weight Esprit De Baileys made a great start in Britain when landing a few tiday bets over the extended 1m3f at Yarmouth recently on his first start since leaving France. The question is whether or not he will stay this extra half mile under his penalty? Spirit of Tomintoul and Final Choice are the others with claims if things go their way and they are in the mood.
