Dual 5f winner here and has only one won over this far. Handles fast ground, but ideally wants it a bit easier. Scored at Chester (5½f) from 4lb lower and went close back there from this mark last time, but more needed over this trip.

Won a 7f Musselburgh novice event last season and also ran respectably in Listed company. Has not got back to that level on handicaps this term, but mark keeps slipping and back up to this trip, he is not ruled out.

Particularly good at Pontefract where he has three wins, two of them this season. 7lb higher than the most recent of those, but still in decent form and with 5lb claimed he could again be involved.

7f Kempton novice winner last year. In good form, having recorded a career-best when a neck second here over 7f and then running well in Carlisle Listed event. Up another 3lb, but scope for more over this shorter trip.

Ran well over C&D in June, though his wins have so far all been over 5f. Handicapper has put him up 8lb for the latest of those at Catterick, meaning a rise in grade. Looks to be improving still, and has each-way claims.

Both his turf wins have been on fast ground, so rain would be a negative. Is enjoying a good season, but was found out here from 3lb lower last time. Up against it.

Both wins were over C&D (good/soft) when with William Haggas. Has not managed to add one this season after wind surgery. Well held last time and despite a 1lb drop, he can probably only be considered as an each-way player at best.

Has won twice at Hamilton on good to soft. Not disgraced again back there last time, despite 6L defeat. 1lb lower here and did run well here last year. Interesting.

Won a C&D novice event in September (good to soft) and followed up on his handicap debut at Chester, when 4lb higher. Back in better form on fast ground here last time. Looks primed to run a big race if rain comes to help his cause.

Ran well here on debut (C&D, good to firm) 13-months ago and bettered that marginally when fresh at Doncaster (7f, good to soft) last month. Initial handicap mark looks fair. Unexposed and interesting.

All his 10 wins have been at this trip and those on turf had good in the description. In decent form and on a competitive mark for his current abilities, so each-way claims.

Forecast

Ginbar (3/1), Fille De Reve (7/2), Equitation (13/2), Manshood (9/1), Pennsylvania Dutch (9/1), Diamond Set (10/1), Soldier's Minute (10/1), Bernardo O'Reilly (10/1), Confessional (11/1), Highly Sprung (12/1), Royal Residence (12/1), Robero (12/1), Meshardal (14/1), Bahuta Acha (14/1), Madrinho (16/1), Handsome Dude (20/1), Zapper Cass (20/1)

Verdict

A wide open look to this, with those of interest including Handsome Dude, Robero, Equitation and Fille De Reve. However, GINBAR looks primed for this and if there is some ease in conditions, then this C&D winner can take advantage. Bernardo O'Reilly would also be interesting if it get softer, while Manshood is another to consider.
