7/1

Has come right back to form with a Haydock win and a Listed second. Tough front-runner who should make a bold bid, however he is vulnerable over a mile to a finisher with all his nine career wins coming over a furlong shorter.

4/1

Seventh in last season's Brittania and resumed with a good win at Wolverhampton. Looked destined for bigger things until two very disappointing runs off revised mark. Questions to answer at present.

5/1

First run at this track but made it four from five on the AW with a gutsy win at Newcastle. Only 3lb higher but could have a bigger race than this in him in due course on either the AW or with give in the ground. Looks the one to beat.

On a long losing run and out of form at present in strong turf handicaps. Will appreciate the return to an AW surface but has tended to look better suited to Lingfield in the past. Others preferred.

Gained a first win since a hat-trick back in 2015 when making all at Sandown. Up 6lb and in a tougher grade he does have the aid of an in-form apprentice, however he got an easy lead last time and unlikely to get the same advantage again.

Four of his nine wins have come at this track including two over the C&D. Yet to win on turf and will appreciate a return to the AW. Should be competitive despite remaining a touch high in the handicap.

10/1

Gets a 2lb pull with Humbert for a half length defeat two starts back and his last run can be dismissed as he's not the same horse on the turf. Just three career wins so far but likely to be thereabouts again.

Ran a huge second at Goodwood and now on a career-high mark. Got an easy lead but couldn't capitalise in the Shergar Cup and arguable he's best when dominating over 7f.

Has struggled this season since kicking off with a Listed second and has generally looked in the grip of the handicapper. Tough ask last twice but still yet to convince he needs this far.

Betting

Forecast

Poet's Society (3/1), Leader's Legacy (4/1), Humbert (5/1), Rufus King (7/1), Salateen (7/1), Pactolus (10/1), Constantino (10/1), Race Day (12/1), Mr Scaramanga (16/1)

Verdict

There's loads of speed amongst the field and that might not suit stablemates Rufus King and Poet's Society who are best over a furlong shorter, although the latter is at least in good form. There's a lot to like about Salateen at present but likewise he will be involved in a scrap for the lead along with Race Day. Pactolus is vulnerable to a better handicapped opponent but should be involved back on a preferred surface. Constantino is closely matched with HUMBERT but while rating a danger, he isn't certain to reverse form with the selection who is still on the upgrade and likely to be suited by a fast run mile.
