16/1

In good form placing on his last four starts and is edging up in the weights in the process. Last win came at this distance and should be competitive again.

Can be slow to get going but has decent form over hurdles and transferred that to the Flat with a smooth win over this C&D. Could be hard to hold out under a penalty.

Bred to need a test of stamina and while he didn't find much improvement on handicap debut, he was possibly unsuited by a slow pace and this extra trip should help.

25/1

Front-runner who was tailed off when last seen on turf in April. Has run well after an absence previously and has form at the C&D so not without hope. However this does look a tough race.

6/4

Six-race maiden who has suggested a win shouldn't be far away with a steady level of improvement in three runs this year. Looks a leading contender with step up in trip likely to suit.

Took another step forward to get off the mark on his eighth start when upped to this trip. Likely to improve again and should be competitive.

Betting

Forecast

Twister (6/4), Final Choice (5/2), Dazzling Rock (4/1), General Zoff (5/1), Strictly Art (16/1), Indian Red (25/1)

Verdict

An intriguing race to conclude the card with some improving stayers and all holding a chance. FINAL CHOICE likes a pace to aim at and the presence of the front-running Indian Red plus the fact that most of the rivals like to race on the pace should create a truly run race and he has plenty more to offer on the Flat. Strictly Art is racing conistently but may have to settle for a place with his rivals having more upside. Twister is progressing and with Dazzling Rock will be suited by this trip while General Zoff like the selection is coming off the back of a good win.
