8/1

Only 2lb higher than Musselburgh win over 1m4½f in May. Second three times since but shade disappointing as favourite last time although turned out just four days after Ripon second. Capable but a few doubts if ground comes up soft.

Hat-trick of seconds at Nottingham, Leicester and Thirsk have seen him raised each time by the handicapper. Obviously progressing all the time so bold bid expected once more.

Twice a winner over this distance at Lingfield this term (both good-to-firm) including last time out. On the up it seems but career high mark here and likelihood of softer ground than he's showed best form on.

Ran well to finish 3L fourth over 1m on handicap debut here in April. Visor worn for the first time that day is retained stepping up markedly in distance. Trip should suit but absence a concern.

Placed a couple of times on heavy ground in Ireland. Not achieved a great deal in two starts for this yard but softer ground likely here which should suit so better can be expected in first-time cheekpieces.

1m1f winner at Lingfield (good-to-soft) in May but not as good last twice here and at Epsom. Weak finishes on several occasions leave big doubts over suitability for this longer distance.

Maiden has shaped with more potential in last two races at Lingfield (1m4f) and Wolverhampton (1m6f) perhaps not staying latest having led 1f out. Lone race on turf here less encouraging so that the biggest doubt.

Beaten just four rivals in five starts to date. Off since finishing last over 6f at Southwell over six months ago. Bred to appreciate this sort of trip better but hard to overcome such an absence.

Completely tailed off in a Lingfield seller, his only start this season and similarly uninspiring in two starts at two. Little to suggest him here.

Forecast

Pentland Hills (6/5), Sir Fred (9/2), Dark Side Jazz (7/1), Poetic Steps (8/1), Shes Queen (17/2), Rupert's Lass (11/1), The Night King (14/1), Astrofire (50/1), College King (50/1)

Verdict

There are doubts over the majority of these runners for one reason or another but those sentiments don't apply to PENTLAND HILLS. Chris Wall's three-year-old is in fine form and deserves to go one better after three straight seconds. Dark Side Jazz is another seemingly on the up having won again last time out so he is a leading contender also. Rupert's Lass is completely unexposed at this trip but she's bred to stay so could well prove to be on a nice mark.
