9/2

C&D winner off this mark in July 2017, and has run well on a number of occasions since June, including when beaten 3L (third) by The Resdev Way over 1m6f here last month.

Won just once in 13 starts, but that was off this mark at Nottingham (1m6f, good to firm) in May; not overly convincing since and now drops back in trip.

Led close home when beating Zihaam by ¾L over C&D (good to firm) in July; beaten favourite off this revised mark (2lb higher) twice since, including when finishing just over 2L third at Redcar (1m6f) latest.

Tried hurdling early summer, but back on the Flat more latterly, and was headed close home when beaten ¾L by Archie Perkins at Beverley (1m2f good to soft) recently; back up in trip.

Stablemate of I'm Yer Man; AW regular (3-11) and far from certain that he has the required stamina reserves for this 1m4f trip; versatile in terms of ground conditions, but is returning from a 135-day absence; vulnerable.

9/1

Prominent racer; 3lb higher than when winning at Thirsk (1m4f, good to soft) on his penultimate start; excuses latest (Fibresand); merits consideration at this sharp track with a top jockey booked to ride.

Nine-race maiden; has shown he can compete off this mark with early season placed turf efforts at Nottingham and Redcar (both 1m2f); disappointing latest, so needs to bounce back to form and definitively prove his stamina.

Stablemate of Mr Carbonator; sole win came for previous trainer Ann Duffield at Chelmsford (7f) in December 2017; dropped 16lb in the weights since joining this trainer, but highly debatable as to whether or not this longer trip will suit.

Seven-race maiden; best effort so far was when a ¾L runner-up to French Resistance at Carlisle (1m1f, good) in June; stamina reserves untested over this extra 3f trip.

20/1

Stable amongst the winners at York on Sunday, and this veteran found the frame (albeit well beaten) on his latest start at Pontefract (1m4f) in July; has won here in the past (7f), but nowhere at all since 2015 and that's off-putting.

Eight-race maiden, finishing last on five of those starts; clearly of limited ability and as a result is immensely difficult to consider as a realistic contender.

No worthwhile form in three starts in 2018; doubtful stayer over 1m4f, and has an overall career record of 1-21, so fair to say that the odds are stacked firmly against him today.

13-race maiden; third (beaten 2L) in a 1m6f seller here in June, but increasingly poor since and is readily overlooked.

Ten-race maiden; runner-up over this trip (soft) at Thirsk on his penultimate start, but never involved behind Mont Royal at Beverley (1m2f) latest; open to a degree of improvement as a stayer, but rates as risky on the whole; market a guide.

Forecast

Calliope (7/2), Firby (9/2), Swansway (9/2), Jaquar (6/1), Mystical Mac (8/1), Mont Royal (8/1), Albert Boy (9/1), Tristram (12/1), Correggio (20/1), I'm Yer Man (20/1), Mr Carbonator (25/1), Allnite (28/1), Simmo's Partytrick (33/1), Arizona Sunrise (100/1), Echo Beat (100/1)

Verdict

There are doubts about a number of these horses in terms of stamina, and the prominent racing Thirsk winner Albert Boy will be amongst those who will help to ensure a solid even tempo. He merits consideration along with the reliable top-weight and previous C&D winner Swansway, and the dual purpose 4yo Mont Royal. However, it's always worth keeping a close eye on Ken Slack-trained Flat runners at Catterick (6-17; 35%), and his mare CALLIOPE remains feasibly handicapped, just 2lb above her last winning mark (over C&D). She's fairly consistent in the main, and is another horse likely to prove well suited to racing handily throughout at this tight track.
