Has been retaining his form well and the step up to 2m this summer has proved no handicap at all. Another solid effort at Thirsk last time and takes a drop in grade here. with De Sousa to do the pushing, is bound to be popular.

Had looked a bit out of form but bounced back with a neck defeat at Wolverhampton last time, staying on well. Extra 2f to cover here asks a new question but could be running back into a bit of form. Acts well on the track.

Looked sure to win races after his second here in April but only seen out once since then, when disappointing. Has had a break and a wind operation, both of which may help, but unproven at the trip and that's a concern.

Plenty went wrong for him at Chelmsford at the weekend but he still dug deep to record a good win. Penalty to carry here less of a worry than the trip but he shapes as if he will stay, so that makes him a big player here.

No win in 9 starts and in truth, has been running okay without setting the world alight. May strip fitter for a couple of recent runs after a break but still plenty to prove at present.

Hadn't shown a lot first three starts but clearly better expected for handicap debut, going off 7-2 and only finding one too good at Southwell (pair well clear). Up 3lb but totally unexposed, stays, and looks like a major contender here.

Got his head in front at the seventh time of asking when successful at Newcastle last time out, the step up in trip (and cheekpieces, retained here) proving key. Probably more to come and ought to be on the premises with a repeat.

Only had the six starts and looked all about stamina when staying on for sixth (at 50-1) over 18f at Chepstow last time. Young enough to improve, which he will need to here, but could go well at a price.

A bit more exposed than a few here, and yet to win one and although she ran her best race for a while last time, that was over 12f, and this trip is a step into the unknown. Others make more appeal.

No win in 10 starts, isn't progressing and after proving a disappointing favourite at Windsor two starts ago, did no better at Windsor last time out. Looks to have plenty on her plate here.

Sent off big prices all four starts and has shown nowhere near enough to think she will be a threat here. Others readily preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Swordbill (11/8), General Zoff (7/2), Saint Mac (5/1), Duration (11/2), Sigrid Nansen (20/1), Giovanni Medici (20/1), Folies Bergeres (25/1), Time To Perfection (25/1), Hereyouare (40/1), Shes Queen (50/1), Snow Mobile (100/1)

Verdict

A tricky finale in which SAINT MAC just gets the vote after a good handicap debut at Southwell where he found only a course regular a bit too good. The nine-length gap back to the rest gives that form a solid enough look and he can get off the mark here. Swordbill will be a huge danger if he stays this trip after a good win at the weekend, and both Duration and General Zoff look key players as well. Those looking for something at a big e/w price could do worse than Hereyouare.
