39-7OR: 101CD
3/1

Useful performer as a juvenile last year and gained reward for some solid efforts this term when winning a 4-runner handicap over C&D from Kimifive. Cheekpieces added now, and should be competitive after a small rise.

4/1

Justified favouritism on return at Windsor in June, and ran to a similar level when third to Kimifive there last time on handicap debut. More needed, but retains scope to progress in this sphere.

7/2

Won novice at Windsor in June, and improved further when landing 6f handicap at Leicester on latest start. Respected on form, although unproven on an easy surface, so could do with the ground drying out.

38-7OR: 87
4/1

Form of both his victories has been working out well, and had excuses when mid-field at York on penultimate start. Bit disappointing here last time, but that came in a red-hot handicap, and capable of bouncing back with cheekpieces deployed.

38-5OR: 85D
14/1

Won over 5f at Nottingham and 6f (soft) at Goodwood last year, the latter in a decent fillies' nursery from 4lb higher. Looked to be coming back to form at Chester last time, and considered, especially if ground remains on easy side.

38-5OR: 85D
10/1

Hasn't managed a place in eight turf runs, but unlucky not to put that right at Goodwood last time when his rider dropped the reins, and he showed there that he could be competitive from current mark.

38-4OR: 84D
11/1

Best turf efforts have come on good or softer ground, so unwise to judge him on latest effort at Windsor. Previous close second over C&D would give him solid claims, and he's one to bear in mind.

Betting

Forecast

Staxton (3/1), Rebel Streak (7/2), Buffer Zone (4/1), Jawwaal (4/1), Count Otto (10/1), Spoof (10/1), Airshow (11/1), Neola (14/1)

Verdict

He may look a bit more exposed than some of his rivals, but STAXTON has plenty of solid efforts to his name, and is capable of conceding weight with cheekpieces likely to help him travel into his race. Airshow can be forgiven a poor run when going off too hard at Windsor, and he has claims on his previous second over C&D, while Buffer Zone is open to improvement and capable of building on a satisfactory handicap bow.
