Scored over this trip on firm at Bath last year, when 2lb lower. Ran well at Yarmouth last time in a 0-75. Should appreciate 3lb drop and drop to this grade. Good pilot up and should go very well.

Best form on the Flat has been shown on good or slower, so ideally wants some rain. Could give him a big chance from this mark based on last year's form (including over C&D) but no better than each-way claims on recent efforts.

11-race maiden. Some of his maiden form suggests that he has a chance from this mark, but he arrives with plenty to prove after a couple of hefty reverses for this trainer, either side of wind surgery. Precautionary market check.

Has really hit form in his last two runs and scored decisively at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) last time, when 7lb lower. Won from this mark two years ago, so a successful follow-up is far from out of the question.

Has run eight times at Yarmouth this season, winning twice there over this trip, including when making all last time from 3lb lower. This is not as strong a contest and his chance is very much respected.

Hurdle winner who is 0-10 in this code. Well treated here on his best efforts, but they were in 2016 and more recent form leaves plenty to be desired.

Placed in 15-23 starts, but remains a maiden. Best handicap form gives him a clear chance from this mark, so a revival is not ruled out. Will need one if he is to avoid the hefty defeats of his last two starts.

5lb higher than when scoring at Hamilton (1m½f, good to firm) in June. Best effort since was back over that C&D from 1lb higher in July, but looks up against it unless he can find some improvement.

Stays further and is without a win for two years (both on good). Has dropped to a more feasible mark now, and not a bad effort from 3lb higher in a Goodwood amateur event last time. Not written off.

0-12. Third at Beverley (1m½f, good) in June, when 5lb higher and would have claims if able to repeat, but has not been able to do so. Bit to prove.

Drops in trip after being well held both here and at Wolverhampton over 1m4f on his last two starts. 1lb 'wrong' and not easy to enthuse about his chance.

Betting

Forecast

Bayston Hill (3/1), Right About Now (4/1), Long Call (6/1), Zamperini (6/1), Prerogative (8/1), Traveltalk (9/1), Dutch Coed (12/1), Hard Toffee (14/1), Gealach Ghorm (40/1), Haroon (50/1), It's How We Roll (50/1)

Verdict

Moderate fayre to conclude proceedings. The market should be informative, but BAYSTON HILL makes appeal dropping a few pounds and into this grade and is taken to score. Haroon may be capable of a better showing on his second start after a wind op, while Traveltalk looks a more obvious potential player. Right About Now also makes some appeal, with Long Call not written off.
