Has proven to be progressive this season and got his head back in front at Ayr last time, gaining a third win of the season. Wouldn't appear to know how to run a bad race at present and a very talented apprentice takes the ride. Should run well.

Hasn't won since 2016 but he's returned to better form in his last couple of starts, finishing a good second of 18 at Thirsk last time. Up 3lb for that but should go close if enough rain arrives (all best form with soft in the going description).

Impressive when winning at Doncaster at the start of the campaign and has held her form well since without getting her head in front. Her best efforts have come with soft in going so any rain would be a positive.

Inconsistent sort who got his head back in front at Haydock in July. Has run poorly twice since though and wide draw no help here; others preferred.

Hasn't won since he was trained by Jean-Claude Rouget in France back in 2016. A return to softer ground may be what's required and while he's been struggling since joining this yard, first-time cheekpieces may see him to better effect.

Very well-handicapped on old form and versatile as far as conditions are concerned. Generally below form this year but made a promising effort on debut for this yard at Thirsk last time out and not ruled out if building on that.

Got his head back in front at Chester earlier in the campaign but he's been well below that form since and he's not the most straightforward out of the stalls. Widest draw makes others more appealing here.

In good form this year with a win and three places and produced another good third in an 18 runner contest at Thirsk last time. This looks a little more competitive but he gets a talented apprentice taking over here and drop in trip is no concern.

Got a first win with a success at Carlisle in June and only narrowly denied in her next two starts. Can be forgiven her run last time out when poorly positioned and she's interesting with the drop back in trip possibly in her favour.

Enjoyed a fine end to the summer last year with three wins in the space of four starts, all on good to soft over 1m+. Has been well below that form this time around and has a bit to prove at present. Wears first-time blinkers.

Just a maiden win to her name at present and very disappointing when last seen over C&D. Has a first start since wind surgery and has a fair amount to prove at present. Wide draw not ideal.

Arrives here bidding for a hat-trick after a trio of wins on AW. On a career high mark now but shaped like there was more to come last time and can't be ruled out, despite only having one win from 16 on turf.

Not the most consistent sort but he produced one of his best efforts for some time at Redcar last time out. Not always straightforward when leaving the stalls and wide draw not ideal here.

Returned to turf with a win at Doncaster in April but hasn't been in the same form since. At his best on soft ground on turf and has made the running in the past so this stall could play in to this favour if deciding on those tactics here.

All five of his wins have come over 6f but produced one of his better efforts over this trip at Thirsk last time. Has a tougher task here in a more competitive contest up 2lb and may not want the ground too soft.

Betting

Forecast

Ladies First (6/1), Lady In Question (6/1), Round The Island (7/1), Storm Ahead (8/1), Logi (8/1), Mango Chutney (8/1), Pickett's Charge (11/1), Twin Appeal (11/1), Saryshagann (14/1), Rose Marmara (14/1), Outrage (16/1), Gold Hunter (16/1), Kentuckyconnection (16/1), Zodiakos (18/1), Sans Souci Bay (20/1), Golden Guest (20/1), Hitman (22/1), Caridade (25/1), Lagenda (33/1), Bold Spirit (33/1)

Verdict

TWIN APPEAL ran with credit on his debut for this yard last time out and given how well-handicapped he is old form, he may be able to get his head back in front. Storm Ahead is taken to build on a solid effort last time out while Bold Spirit can't be ruled out, particularly if he returns to front running tactics from his inside berth (1).
