Dual AW winner has only raced twice on turf. Made an odds-on favourite latest under a 6lb penalty at Yarmouth after winning at Newcastle but could only manage fifth. Bit to prove on turf but not out of this.

A winner over 7f at Thirsk earlier in the campaign and managed a couple of fair thirds at Ayr before slightly lesser effort last time. Not ruled out completely but others appeal as better handicapped.

Lightly raced veteran has failed to get competitive in two starts this season both over this trip and at this level. No obvious reason to expect better here so passed over.

Irish raider won over 1m at Gowran Park earlier in the season but struggled on the whole since. Only beaten 2L at Ayr penultimately and maybe given too much to do there so claims here 3lb lower and trainer 29% with UK runners this season.

Maiden ran his best race to date at Catterick on penultimate start finishing second of 12 over this trip. Possibly didn't handle easier conditions next when disappointing at Thirsk. Hard to be confident overall.

Yet to win in 14 starts for this yard and over two years since he last scored. Only beaten 2¼L last time out over 6f at Thirsk when fourth which was his best run for some time. 2lb lower here so a similar effort would see him competitive.

Maiden of 27 starts but placed six times this year including latest third at Carlisle over 1m where he led until well inside the final furlong. Same mark here so is interesting and logically a drop to 7f should suit.

Dual winner over 1m½f in Jersey this summer but hard to gauge that form overall. Form on UK soil overall quite average as latest effort at Yarmouth showed (beaten 23L). Others preferred.

Has struggled since winning off this mark at Ayr in July. Drop in weight will help but far from prolific these days so not easy to fancy. Also engaged Hamilton Thursday.

32 race maiden now with his fourth trainer but showed little in two starts for the yard at Nottingham and Southwell. Hardly the sort to be taking a chance on.

Collared late on over 1m here two starts ago which was comfortably her best effort to date. Couldn't build on that over C&D latest although wide trip not ideal there. Only 1lb higher than close 1m second so has to be considered.

Betting

Forecast

Texas Radio (5/2), Colour Contrast (5/1), Frank's Legacy (11/2), Mr Shelby (6/1), Eva Docc (7/1), Muraadef (15/2), Tadaany (9/1), Be Bold (9/1), Destination Aim (14/1), Tellovoi (33/1), Stardrifter (33/1), Iconic Figure (66/1)

Verdict

John James Feane has a good record with his raiders from the Emerald Isle and TEXAS RADIO is worth chancing here. He wasn't beaten far at Ayr in August despite being given plenty to do so with a further 3lb off his back he has to be a leading contender. Eva Docc is an interesting three-year-old and has hinted that she's close to a winning mark lately while Colour Contrast deserves to get his head infront belatedly. Mr Shelby would be a leading contender if taking his chance but is declared for Hamilton on Thursday.
