5/1

Showed big improvement to win on his stable debut and makes a quick reappearance under a penalty. Won with plenty in hand and should be a leading player if reproducing the run on this surface.

Has fallen to a very competitive mark and ran a solid third over shorter at Wolverhampton. Extra distance should be a plus and can be in the mix.

Suited by this C&D when bouncing back to form and only just denied late recently. Chance if in the same mood but can be inconsistent.

Sent off at long odds and tailed off in all three starts so far. Tried in first-time headgear but hard to make a case for on handicap debut.

Won a lower-grade handicap at Kempton earlier this year but has struggled off higher marks since and remains best watched.

24-race maiden who suggested a win wasn't far away over this C&D two starts back before not really building on it under the same conditions. Place possibilities.

Won off a reduced mark at Wolverhampton before a beaten favourite over this C&D. Has to reverse form with Shamonix but racing well enough to be competitive in this company.

Just three wins in 45 starts and hasn't been able to take advantage of falling AW mark. Not certain this extra distance will suit.

14-race maiden who ran his best race for some time when rattling home to finish third over this C&D. Major player if building on that.

Only had the five starts and just failed to land a gamble on handicap debut. Failed to build on that last time but one of the more likely types and market support would be interesting on AW debut.

Seven-race maiden who hasn't shown much in two starts back from a break. Needs to find significant improvement for this step up in trip.

Only showed slight improvement on her fifth start and needs to take a big step forward to be competitive .

Betting

Forecast

Oakley Mimosa (5/2), Gift From God (4/1), Cat Royale (9/2), King Athelstan (5/1), Ronni Layne (14/1), Shamonix (16/1), Cold Harbour (16/1), Spryt (20/1), Angel Of The North (20/1), Astroblaze (28/1), Outrath (33/1), Foxy Locks (50/1)

Verdict

KING ATHELSTAN returned from a break with a win for his new stable and did so in the manner of one who can follow up under a penalty in a race lacking depth Cat Royale would rate a danger with the extra distance likely to help while Shamonix can also be in contention if backing up his last run, however that is no certainty. Likewise Gift From God can be involved if building on an improved performance over this C&D while Oakley Mimosa is lightly-raced and not one to give up on just yet at this level.
  1. King Athelstan
  2. Cat Royale
  3. Gift From God
