Something of an in and out performer who is capable of bouncing back from two poor runs since his York success. Still takes a leap of faith to follow him off this mark.

Had a hard race when justifying short odds at Newmarket and completely fell away at York next time. May be more at home in less competitive fields than this.

Bounced back to land a gamble here on penultimate start and back to his inconsistent worst here a fortnight ago. Hard to know what to expect and equally difficult to say he is well-handicapped.

His overall AW form and best recent run at Newcastle give him every chance. Hard to overlook a poor run last time though when no obvious excuse.

Back to form when landing a quite valuable 7f Newbury handicap for the second year in a row under this jockey. 8lb higher from a poor draw and yet to make the first three on the AW.

Landed the 7f Class 2 International Stakes at Ascot in July 2017 (50/1), but predictably has found life tougher since from his elevated mark. Ran well in the face of another stiff task when last seen in June and better weighted here if ready.

Now 2-3 on Polytrack having looked more mature last time. That was a big improvement on his first run since being gelded when behind Sea Fox and there is potentially better to come.

Scored here (7f) on only AW start and a subsequent placed effort in Listed company damaged her handicapped mark. Produced a good run from this mark at York and worth another try at this trip, although her style of running requires luck in running.

Was in good form off higher marks at this level earlier in the year. Best recent run came from this mark and this less competitive than last two starts. Engaged Sandown 4:30 Friday.

Has won three times this year including a pillar to post victory here in July. Race probably did not go to according plan two weeks ago so the effort can be upgraded, however he is yet to make the frame in this grade.

Closely matched with Swift Approval on Newmarket July running but clearly held by Fenaan on his latest run and now 0-12 in this grade.

All seven wins have come on all three AW variants. Best recent effort came in a hot race at Newcastle and he's been sprinting since. Has C&D winning form and down to a good mark, but losing run stretches back 26 races.

Betting

Forecast

Fennaan (9/4), Victory Wave (7/2), George (6/1), Clubbable (6/1), Rufus King (10/1), Gallipoli (12/1), Poet's Society (14/1), Swift Approval (16/1), Sea Fox (16/1), Squats (20/1), Stamp Hill (33/1), Holiday Magic (33/1), Constantino (33/1)

Verdict

A typically open class 2 event for this track can go to FENAAN who shaped well in two valuable handicaps earlier in the season and showed the benefit of a gelding operation to increase his AW tally last time. There should be better to come and he has most to fear here from Stamp Hill who had a stiff task at Newcastle when meeting Florencio on unfavourable terms and that form has been upheld since. Richard Fahey's other runner, Clubbable, is prone to finding trouble whist his third string, Galipoli, is held by the selection. Swift Approval and Holiday Magic have claims on their best AW form, whilst Mark Johnston's pair, Poet's Society and Rufus King are unpredictable.
