17/2

This will be his third run back from wind surgery and he may well welcome a drop in grade having found it tough to win in better company this year. Not only drops in grade but slips back below his last winning mark; ran well enough last time.

11/1

C&D winner who is prone to the odd laboured effort (one came last time) but they have mostly occurred in a better grade than this one. Not on a going day last time at Chester but has always bounced back from a poor run and could do so again here.

Starting to get to grips with what's required now he ran well enough in first-time cheekpieces last time over 1m2f (trip looked too sharp). Now back over 1m4f in first-time blinkers a repeat of his Thirsk 2nd will see him go close here.

On the evidence so far looks as though he needs a real test at this trip and the drop to 1m2f last time didn't play to his strengths. This will be his 3rd handicap attempt but it looks as though there is more to come as his stamina is pushed further.

Faces some progressive types here and despite the fact that he still looks capable off this mark he comes into this off a below-par run. Given the test he races here likely to come up short and others are more persuasive in their claims.

11/4

Showing some steady progression in handicaps although he's yet to win one. The only one to get near an all-the-way winner at Sandown last time over 2f further having loomed up in the home straight he's expected to be a contender here.

11/1

A Ripon win over this trip in June pointed to him showing some progression although that win did come in a lower grade than he faces here. His two starts since his victory have shown him in a good and bad light; bounce back needed now.

Forecast

Silver Crescent (13/8), Moon of Baroda (11/4), Vision Clear (5/1), Hilborough (5/1), Kajaki (17/2), Zihaam (11/1), Airplane (11/1), Wotabreeze (22/1)

Verdict

The three-year-olds hold sway numerically here and they ought to be able to take this race again having won the last four renewals. Vision Clear and Silver Crescent are two from that age group that give them a strong hand with both of those protagonists looking as though this trip will suit them. However, neither of them can match the Sandown 2nd of MOON OF BARODA last time out with the drop to this trip looking ideal for the Charles Hills trained runner. Of the older brigade Zihaam is a C&D winner but he has to bounce back from a poor run last time while Kajaki despite slipping below his last winning mark may find it hard to cope with the progressive three-year-olds.
