9/1

Returned to win at Newmarket in April, but well below form in three subsequent runs. This doesn't look any easier than his recent assignments and still above last winning mark. Needs first-time blinkers to have a positive effect.

Eight of his wins have come at Ripon but has won here before and while he disappointed in a hat-trick bid at his favourite course last time out, it's likely he's still in form. Has run well from higher marks before and can't be ruled out.

Won at Epsom earlier in the campaign on soft ground and has run well in defeat on his last couple of starts. Looks a shade vulnerable from this handicap mark in a race of this nature but likely to continue in form at least.

Hasn't won since landing a Listed race in 2016. He's been in and out of form this year but certainly capable off this sort of mark and any cut in the ground would be in his favour.

Very consistent this year before a rare below par effort at Ascot last time. Won this in 2016 from 5lb lower and has place claims here.

9/2

French winner who ran with some credit at Chester on debut for his new yard. That effort can be upgraded given his slow start and could be lurking on a nice handicap mark here. The drop in trip is the concern.

9/1

Inconsistent sort but he's won three times already this year. Failed to follow up a Newmarket win back at the same course last time when last of 7f and yet to race on turf on ground worse than good to firm so has questions to answer.

Ended a long losing run at Newcastle back in January but he's been disappointing since and he only has one win from 22 starts on turf. Not always quick away and may need a strong gallop to aim at.

4/1

Gained a first win since debut at Lingfield (turf) in June and followed up with an impressive win at Ffos Las in a 16 runner contest next time. 9lb higher up in class but conceivable he could carry on progressing, particularly with Atzeni on board.

Betting

Forecast

Shanghai Glory (4/1), Bernardo O'Reilly (4/1), Al Erayg (9/2), Lake Volta (5/1), Amazour (7/1), Normandy Barriere (8/1), Citron Major (9/1), Aeolus (9/1), Shared Equity (10/1), Dark Power (12/1), Von Blucher (25/1), Pipers Note (25/1)

Verdict

BERNARDO O'REILLY arrives bidding for a hat-trick after an impressive win at Ffos Las last time, overcoming trouble in running, and with Atzeni on board, he's expected to run another big race despite a rise in the weights. Last year's winner Amazour can't be ruled out from just a 2lb higher mark this time around while Al Erayg is an intriguing runner if he can cope with the drop in trip. Dark Power could run well if there's soft in the going description.
