Just one win from 22 starts but only just failed to make all at Musselburgh on latest start. Rallied late and extra furlong here a plus. A leading candidate if handling slower conditions.

Just 1lb higher than last winning mark at Ayr in July and handles these conditions. Can be competitive again but vulnerable to better handicapped rivals.

23-race maiden who took well to a first-time visor (retained) when second at Ayr. Can be competitive but concern over the drop in trip and yet to show a liking for cut in the ground.

Irish-raider who is respected on decent fourth at Carlisle before struggling in a stronger race at the Curragh. Only had the seven starts and open to more improvement than most.

C&D winner who is very well handicapped and returned to form with a fourth on soft ground at Carlisle. Clearly suited by these conditions and looks a leading hope down in grade.

Betting

Forecast

Building Year (5/1), Dodgy Bob (11/2), Alfie's Angel (6/1), Someone Exciting (8/1), Mr Shelby (17/2), Rockley Point (10/1), My Valentino (14/1), Gaelic Wizard (16/1), Vallarta (18/1), Maureb (18/1), Willsy (18/1), Sir Domino (20/1), Gilmer (20/1), Scuzeme (22/1), Dutch Dream (50/1)

Verdict

Dodgy Bob returned to form with a switch to soft ground and that seems to be a key factor nowadays. Along with Gaelic Wizard he goes well at this course and can be in the mix. It may be worth siding with BUILDING YEAR who remains lightly-raced and showed plenty of promise when last on these shores, with his run able to be upgraded following interference at the start. Mr Shelby is another to note although the ground remains a query while Rockley Point is taken to place again.
