6/1

Wore cheekpieces for the first time when victorious in a lady riders race at Ascot last month, which came on the back of three modest runs since the start of the turf season. Previous form was better and has gone well on this surface. Sound claims.

Consistent gelding that handles this surface well. However, he's currently 2lb higher than his last winning mark and a new personal best required on these terms. Dangerous to underestimate nevertheless.

Holding his form well but this looks tougher than the claimer he won at Newcastle in June and more is now required. However, a good effort back in a handicap latest suggests he's still capable of making the frame at this level.

Often goes well after a short break, so her fair effort over 1m here last month wasn't out of character. Her yard is flying with a 60% strike-rate in the last fortnight, so feasible the filly can post another bold effort. One to bear in mind.

Rounded off last season with a couple of wins on turf but is lacking experience of racing on the AW (raced just once at Kempton so far) and last two outings have seen mixed fortunes.

Struggled since switched to handicaps but possible he'll be better suited by the return to 7f this time. Stable going well, so worth a betting check on his polytrack debut.

5/1

Consistent colt that has already placed twice at this course. High enough in the ratings and yet to win over 7f; but likely to go well and, with the jockey's 3lb claim helping at the weights, can be considered as leading candidate for top honours.

Suited by the trip but can also be slowly away and has been well held off his current mark in his last two outings. Comes here with a bit to prove.

In good form and gets on well with the jockey but faces a tough ask for a three-year-old now he's been hit with his latest 6lb rise for winning over C&D last time out.

10/1

Likes to race with the pace and well enough drawn to help force the tempo. Slightly concerning that he lacks experience of a Polytrack surface but can go well for a highly respected yard. Still 8lb higher than his last win though.

Betting

Forecast

Ifubelieveindreams (7/2), Warsaw Road (5/1), Maypole (5/1), Quick Breath (5/1), Cliffs Of Capri (6/1), Florencio (6/1), Inviolable Spirit (10/1), Unforgiving Minute (25/1), Giant's Treasure (25/1), Sans Souci Bay (33/1)

Verdict

A tough one to call as not too many can readily be ruled out. The likes of: Ifubelieveindreams, Cliffs Of Capri and Florencio all have solid recent form, which entitles them to a place on the shortlist. However, MAYPOLE is a consistent performer that has shown a liking for the Polytrack and, with his rider's 3lb assisting with the burden at the weights, the Richard Hannon-trained colt has plenty going for him from a handy draw and edges the nomination as the selection here.
  1. Maypole
  2. Ifubelieveindreams
  3. Cliffs Of Capri
