10/1

Tailed off in what was a tough ask in a Listed turf contest and better judged on his very good two course wins which were followed by a fine fourth in a higher grade over this C&D. Rates a leading contender off the same mark.

Former Irish performer who then showed plenty of graded form over in Bahrain. Didn't look particularly well handicapped on his stable debut and finished well beaten. Down 5lb but others preferred.

Just 1lb higher than last winning mark at Lingfield in November and had been generally consistent before being pitched into the John Smith's Cup. Can run well back on the AW but others look better handicapped.

Very progressive in his first four starts for leading connections before being unsuited by racing on a very fast tempo in a hot Newmarket handicap. Back to his previous winning distance he can kick on again on this AW debut.

Bred to appreciate a trip but didn't seem to stay over further at Newbury following his previous third over this C&D. Looks on a competitive mark but may be that he doesn't have the turn of foot on a quicker surface as both wins came with cut.

Disappointed last time having returned to his last winning mark and now dropped a further 2lb. Yet to race here but has shown a preference for an AW surface so could be a danger if bouncing back.

Didn't stay over further at Ascot but may require a drop back to a mile to be at her very best. Front-runner who is vulnerable late to others with a better change of gears.

Won at a big price on his fifth start for his new stable taking advantage of a falling mark. Up 5lb but remains 2lb lower than previous winning mark for Godolphin. Up in class but won in good style and one to keep on the right side of.

Former Luca Cumani runner who like stablemate Vale Do Sol raced most recently in Bahrain. Has returned on a tough handicap mark and best watched on stable debut.

Won his first three career starts at Newcastle before being well beaten in two starts on turf. Now tried in first-time blinkers but has to bounce back and others look more solid propositions.

Two from four with both wins coming on the AW and both defeats with cut in the ground. Questionable how strong latest win was but if the blinkers have the same effect he is open to plenty of progress.

Betting

Forecast

Adamant (11/8), Nathan (5/1), Rashdan (6/1), Emenem (7/1), Secret Art (10/1), Fayez (12/1), Dowayla (14/1), Casey Jones (16/1), Super Kid (16/1), Vale Do Sol (50/1), Four On Eight (50/1)

Verdict

Judged on his previous three runs here, including the last twice coming in a higher grade, it's worth taking a chance that SECRET ART can bounce back to form. There were also excuses for Adamant on his latest run and in these conditions he looks a leading contender. Super Kid won nicely last time and would be suited by a likely quick tempo that should make him capable of making his mark in this higher grade while Rashdan needs to step forwards again but that isn't out of the question.
