3/1

Ran a career best and finished second for the third time in four starts when travelling like the winner before not quickening late on at this track. Extra distance may help and can be involved again.

Hasn't been in the same form since winning at Goodwood in June and despite easing back in the weights others look more solid propositions at present.

Had wind surgery following his debut and has run to a similar level on his two starts since. Needs to learn to settle better but open to plenty of improvement on handicap debut.

Has improved nicely on his last two runs with a Beverley win and then only just caught late on over this C&D. Has more to offer and could be the one to beat.

Forecast

Breathable (6/4), Astromachia (11/4), Qawamees (3/1), Dr Richard Kimble (9/2), Reassurance (5/1)

Verdict

There's enough pace on show to suggest that this will be truly run with Reassurance likely to take them along on this significant drop in class. Qawamees will be popular but needs to find more at the business end to convert his runs into wins while Astromachia is interesting on handicap debut for a stable really hitting form. BREATHABLE has really kicked on the last twice and looked like making it two in a row last time. He's proven over the C&D and represents a stable who has won three of the eight renewals of this race.
