8/1

Equally adept at both 5f and 6f and goes particularly well at Wolverhampton. Also acts on turf and, while he has not been in the best of form lately, he has dropped to a very handy mark. Money for him would be interesting.

0-16 but has been reasonably competitive a few times this season and has slipped to a more attractive mark. Drops in trip, but worth a try, though clearly a bit to prove.

Has won twice here, including two starts ago (good), when 6lb lower. Couldn't back up that tenacious effort last time, but is again worth each-way consideration back here, especially if it is good or slower.

Scored on good ground over this trip at Musselburgh in May, when on the same mark. Held since, and doesn't win too often, but handles any ground with good in the description and is not written off back on this mark.

Runner-up in this race last year when 8lb higher, but is 0-22 on turf. Not seen enough lately on either surface to suggest that a revival is immiment.

Best at Chelmsford, but has won once from 19 starts on turf, so can do it. Hinted at a return to better at Thirsk last time, but is not easy to be confident about.

1-10, that win being on the AW at Lingfield (1m) in June, in first-time cheekpieces, from this mark. Has since joined this stable and after two runs, he is interesting back on this mark and under this pilot.

0-47 and although placed from this mark when beaten 2L at Ffos Las (5f, good) last time, she would be a surprise winner. Even so, can't rule her out on an each-way basis.

Has earned 10 wins from 5f-6f, but none since 2016. Now a light of former days and can't be recommended here on this season's evidence.

Betting

Forecast

Nibras Again (6/4), Toni's A Star (9/2), Red Stripes (5/1), Twentysvnthlancers (11/2), The Golden Cue (7/1), Invincible Ridge (8/1), Prezzie (14/1), Celerity (25/1), Mighty Zip (25/1), Minty Jones (40/1), Secret Asset (40/1)

Verdict

Very poor fayre, with Invincible Ridge making some appeal now down to this mark and in this grade. He should go well, but we know less about PREZZIE, who is back on the same mark as her sole win so far and in the hands of a trainer enjoying a cracking season. With Hanagan up, she could be the one. The Golden Cue would come into it particularly if the ground went soft, while Twentysvnthlancers is not ruled out.
