8/1

Beat a modest lot comfortably at Chepstow and achieved more when third at Goodwood. Handles this surface and should give a good account if fit after three months off.

Won twice over hurdles in 2016, but well beaten in all three starts since over a two year period.

Relished the return to AW action and a drop in class to score at Lingfield 11 days ago. Idled in front so had more in hand than the official margin suggests, but the handicapper has taken that into account.

9/1

Nine-race maiden having his second start for leading NH trainer who has a 4-15 record with his AW Flat runners. Weakened quickly on return from two year absence and if now back to his best 2016 form he would have to be considered.

Windsor winner who showed he could be competitive off this mark on his next outing. Out of his depth last time but should offer more here with the likelihood of a decent pace to aim at.

Bred for shorter but steps up in trip having looked short of pace. Would have finished second when supported on handicap debut if his rider had not lost his whip.

Winner of a couple of class 6 AW contests since sporting blinkers. His latest effort was highly impressive and no reason in his pedigree why he will not stay this longer distance.

C&D winner who handled the conditions better than most when coasting home at Lingfield two weeks ago. Has more to do here off 4lb higher against better horses.

Betting

Forecast

Morning Skye (5/2), Moving Forward (11/4), Lexington Empire (3/1), High Command (6/1), Bombero (8/1), Press Gang (9/1), El Borracho (14/1), Famous Dynasty (20/1), Red Orator (80/1)

Verdict

LEXINGTON EMPIRE has been transformed by blinkers and can take the step up in class given the ease with which he scored last time. The likelihood of a decent gallop helps El Borracho, but a bigger threat may come from Moving Forward who was backed on his handicap debut and gave indications he would improve for this longer trip.
