8/1

Ended a lengthy losing run at Musselburgh last time out but not the most consistent and may struggle to defy top weight.

Hasn't won since 2015 and well beaten last time out at Chelmsford. Recent rain is in his favour and has run some respectable races in defeat this campaign so he can't be entirely ruled out.

Has just won one of his 15 starts and struggling for form of late. May want a step back up in trip before he gets to visit the winners' enclosure again.

Only wins came in back-to-back races at Hamilton at the back end of last year. Started this campaign with a couple of promising efforts but form has tailed off subsequently and perhaps a shade vulnerable here.

Struggling for any sort of form of late, tailed off on most of his starts for this yard. Certainly capable on old form but he's a veteran now and it's unlikely he retains much of his old ability.

Gives the impression he's a bit of a Southwell specialist and has only placed once in eight starts on turf when a well beaten second in a maiden back in 2015. Others preferred.

Won on handicap debut at Newmarket last year but she's been below form in three runs this campaign. Rider won this race in 2014.

Won a maiden at Deauville last year and while his seasonal return at Catterick was promising enough, his four runs since have been well below par. Has a bit to prove at present.

Hasn't won since his maiden success at Lingfield. Placed on several of his outings last year but he doesn't look the most straightforward and he's been well beaten on both starts this year since wind surgery.

Won three of his 22 starts for Richard Fahey but his four runs for this yard have been below par and stamina is unproven over this far.

Won at Southwell earlier in the campaign but his turf form has been patchy and he's been struggling for any form of late. Has first start since wind surgery and others preferred.

Gained just a second career win at Wolverhampton last time out in claiming company. Makes debut for his new connections here with a recently retired jockey certainly not a negative in a race of this nature.

Still a maiden after 15 starts and struggling for any sort of form on his last couple of outings. A return to this sort of trip might be in his favour though.

Sole win came on heavy ground at Ffos Las last year and she's been running well in defeat throughout this campaign. Doesn't look the easiest ride (can race keenly and can be slowly away) but not ruled out if the first-time hood works.

Won three times last year and while he's failed to land a blow from his revised handicap mark, his most recent two efforts have been respectable. Versatile with regards to conditions and has place claims.

Has been in good form throughout this campaign and got his head back in front in claiming company at Lingfield last time. Versatile with regards to conditions and this rider has gone close in the contest in previous years.

Forecast

Cheeky Rascal (3/1), Detachment (15/2), Zeshov (8/1), Laqab (8/1), Lady Alavesa (9/1), Central City (10/1), Placebo Effect (10/1), Fink Hill (10/1), Cadeau Magnifique (12/1), Ventura Gold (14/1), Mudawwan (16/1), Fleetfoot Jack (20/1), Luna Bear (20/1), Assimile (25/1), Ginger Jack (25/1), Traveller (33/1), Tavener (33/1), Hammer Gun (50/1), Young John (100/1)

Verdict

It might be worth taking a chance on CENTRAL CITY after a success at Wolverhampton last time out and with the recently retired Ted Durcan in the saddle, he may have an advantage over many of his rivals. Cheeky Rascal may still be a maiden but a return to this sort of trip will play to his strengths while Ventura Gold arrives in decent form and shouldn't be ruled out.
