On a very lenient mark on pick of his 2017 form, which included a win at Ascot off 15lb higher. Increasingly hard to catch right, however, and anyone's guess whether he will put his best foot forward.

Often makes the running, but benefited from more patient tactics when winning four-runner affair at Yarmouth in July. Creditable effort in amateur event next time, and excuses since when finishing lame.

Won at Lingfield in January and finished clear of the rest when 2½L second of 8 to Narjes in apprentice handicap at Brighton last time. Solid claims on that effort, and top rider booked.

Below form since winning at Yarmouth in May, and looked a hard ride when fourth there on penultimate start. Last of 4 at Brighton more recently, and readily opposable on balance.

Well treated on 2017 form, and not disgraced on first few starts this year, but his form has dropped off more recently. Normally wears cheekpieces, and possible refitted blinkers will spark him back to form (has worked before).

On a lengthy losing run, but ran one of his better races when fourth at Catterick on final start for Karen Tutty in June. Had a sighter for new yard at Wolverhampton last month, and should build on that, for all he needs to.

In good form on AW this season, winning twice over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton, and ran well to be third there recently. Not as good or reliable on turf, however, and finished last at Pontefract when tried in July.

Veteran who has never been easy to predict, his sole win last year coming out of the blue; has achieved very little this year, and may well have run his course.

Longstanding maiden who ran poorly last time, but would struggle to make a major impact even on the pick of her form.

Runner-up at Brighton and Epsom this season, but she is still a maiden after umpteen starts, and a place is probably the best she can hope for once more.

Ran a fair race when fourth over an extended 5½f at Bath (firm) in June. Well beaten there the following month and doesn't shape as if crying out for a step up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Mr Andros (7/4), Cricklewood Green (5/2), Relight My Fire (11/2), Caribbean Spring (10/1), Emily Goldfinch (16/1), Cool Strutter (16/1), Following Breeze (20/1), Gulland Rock (25/1), Spirit Of Ishy (40/1), Tally's Song (66/1), Lutine Charlie (80/1)

Verdict

Mr Andros has a fairly solid profile and the assistance of Serena Brotherton, so should give a good account, but a chance is taken on RELIGHT MY FIRE, who has been perked up by a change of headgear more than once in the past and who is well treated on the pick of his form. Potentially thrown in on old form is Cricklewood Green, and the topweight is feared despite very mixed results this season.
  1. Relight My Fire
  2. Cricklewood Green
  3. Mr Andros
