Won three from four earlier this year moving rapidly up in the weights and has run well enough in stronger company since. The drop back in class and distance will help but stable could be in better form.

Won at Carlisle three runs back, making it two wins at that course this year. Bit below that last twice and looks weighted up to his best. Stable also runs Presidential.

Slowly easing back in the weights but is still 3lb higher than Leicester win, Well handicapped on 2016 form but likely he's not the same horse and could probably do with some more slack from the handicapper.

Winner of four races this year and has progressed well to step up from plating company to winning a handicap at Ripon. Goes well here and the step back from a mile will only help. Should go well again for last year's winning stable.

Hasn't lived up to the best of his French form since joining current stable, although went close in a good York contest two starts back. Below that last time and perhaps cut in the ground will suit down the line. Stable also runs Acrux.

Won off this mark for Simon Crisford and made it a second career win when making all at Pontefract. Ran well from a poor draw last time and should be a leading contender.

Looked a horse on the up winning twice on the AW at the end of last season but well held back on turf both starts this year. May be worth waiting for a return to Newcastle.

Dropping back in the weights after not repeating the promising form of 2017. Well held last twice and best watched at present.

Showed improvement for a second career win in a first-time hood but headgear (retained here) didn't have the same effect when a beaten favourite. Still lightly-raced but needs to find extra.

Failed to build on promise of first win when well beaten favourite at Haydock. That was disappointing although he reportedly lost a shoe and while he's so lightly-raced is worth a check in the betting.

Won a maiden when trained by Marco Botti but didn't build on current stable debut when last at Chelmsford. First run on turf since career debut and questions to answer.

Betting

Forecast

Presidential (11/4), Ghayadh (4/1), Knowing Glance (5/1), Etikaal (6/1), Prestbury Park (12/1), Acrux (14/1), Tadaawol (16/1), Equiano Springs (18/1), Saryshagann (25/1), Dream Mount (25/1), Firmdecisions (28/1)

Verdict

Presidential should be helped by a drop back in grade in what looks an open handicap. He will also be suited by the drop back from a mile, much like Acrux, who also looks the pick of his trainer's two runners. ETIKAAL is in good heart, his run from a poor draw can be upgraded and gets the valuable 5lb claim of an apprentice who is flying at present. He should make a bold bid from the front while it would be no surprise to see Knowing Glance leave behind a surprisingly below-par effort.
