Prolific winner on the AW in 2016 but absent since winning by a head over 2m at Lingfield in December of that year. Worth a check in the market following a lengthy absence.

Built on a promising third over C&D when winning at Chepstow (2m, good-to-soft) last time out. Raised 2lb for that success and is of interest once more.

Returning from a break when finishing a close fourth over an extended 1m5f at Newbury (good) last month. Has run well over this distance in the past.

Placed second over C&D on good-to-firm ground in July. Well held behind Gang Warfare on only subsequent start and others hold stronger claims.

Winner over 1m4f at Salisbury (good-to-firm) in June but struggled in a couple of hot handicaps subsequently. Steps up in distance and wears cheekpieces for the first time.

Running well over hurdles this summer but well beaten in a 1m6f contest on good-to-soft ground here last month on his most recent Flat appearance. Probably best watched at present.

Won four of her five starts since switching to handicaps. Sole defeat came over this trip in July and she looks likely to play a leading role back up in distance.

Betting

Forecast

Polish (11/8), Altra Vita (9/4), Monjeni (4/1), Arty Campbell (10/1), Gang Warfare (12/1), Arthur Mc Bride (12/1), Alfredo (20/1), Nabhan (25/1)

Verdict

POLISH drops in grade here and that combined with the application of cheekpieces can see him register a first handicap victory stepping up in distance. The selection contested a valuable handicap at York last time and this looks a much weaker contest. Altra Vita looks capable of finishing runner-up receiving weight from all of her rivals having looked a progressive sort since switching to handicaps while third can go to Gang Warfare who was a winner last time out.
