Hasn't shone in her last two outings in decent company but previously ran very well when thrid to the decent Ginger Nut in sales race at Newbury. Reproduction of that form off 6lb lower mark would give her a proper chance.

Landed minor nursery at Brighton last month and again ran well when third at Sandown last time off 5lb higher mark. Eased 1lb and good young rider claims 3lb more so should be thereabouts once again.

€57,000 Society Rock colt showed progressive form at minor level in maidens then ran well when runner-up on handicap bow at Ffos Las last time. Eased 1lb and represnts top yard so has to enter calculations.

Beaten just a neck on third start when trained by Joseph O'Brien and ran with credit on first three starts for current handler. Ran too free in first-time blinkers latest start and no surprise to see them left off here. Worth a market check.

Represents last year's winning stable but will do well to repeat the feat on recent evidence having run poorly last two outings. Down 4lb after poor run over 6f at Ffos Las latest. Drop back in trip may well but has work to do.

One of three trained by Stan Moore in this field, this filly has had just three starts and finished fourth in a Goodwood seller last time out. Makes handicap bow but others appear to offer more.

Bungle Inthejungle filly who hans't looked any great shakes on evidence of her seven appearances so far. Well beaten at Deauville in heavy ground last time and tries the other going extreme now.

Placed twice from 12 starts and has been generally disappointing. Beaten a long way last two starts and hard to make a case for despite receiving weight from all her rivals.

Betting

Forecast

Tinto (2/1), London Rock (11/4), On The Stage (3/1), Staycation (7/1), Raskolnikov (14/1), Ever Rock (20/1), Lippy Lady (22/1), Tisneverending (50/1)

Verdict

Marginal preference is for ON THE STAGE whose fourth in a decent Sales race at Newbury in July reads well in this company. London Rock made a promising handicap bow when runner-up last time at Ffos Las and should again go well, while Brighton winner Tinto ran with credit at Sandown last time and won't be far away. Raskolnikov represents Ralph Beckett who won this race 12 months ago and may be helped by the drop back in trip, but has work to do.
