10/1

Has won a couple over 5f this year, but is equally adept over this trip. However, the handicapper just looks to have his measure at present, so worth a try with this claimer up. Not written off.

Scored from 4lb lower at Ayr (6f, good to firm) in July and was beaten just 1½L frok this mark at Musselburgh (5f) last time. Should be in the mix.

Won a 1m2f seller here in 2016 (good to firm). Has raced mainly at that trip or 1m. Well held at Newcastle last time when 3lb higher. May have needed that after a break, but not easy to see him having the speed of some of these.

Scored from 1lb higher at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) in July. Badly out of sorts on his last three starts, however, and can only watch for the time being.

Sole success came over this trip in France on soft ground. Well held on both runs for this trainer and handicapper has reacted by dropping him 8lb here. Has it to prove on fast ground, but merits a market check.

Has won over this trip, though most recent success came over 5f at Doncaster (good to firm) in July, when 1lb lower. Has run respectably in most starts since, but more needed if he is to land this.

Can be a little inconsistent, but has won two of his last three, both over this trip. 4lb higher than his latest success at Thirsk, and in a better race, he is going to need to better that career-best to follow-up.

Won a fast ground Thirsk seller over this trip in May. Would have decent claims if able to replicate his Ripon third, two starts ago when he was 2lb higher. Soft ground a possible excuse last time. Should be involved.

Has won two of his last three, both at Catterick, the latest in a similar quality event. Up 3lb for that, but trip and ground suit and he should be very competitive.

3lb better off with Extrasolar for a 1L defeat at Catterick last time and had pipped him at that venue in May. Should be little to choose between them again here and this consistent performer (at this level) should be in the thick of it.

0-10 on turf and has not shown enough this season to suggest that he will be winning this.

38-11OR: 67

Inconsistent in four starts since joining this trainer, but his two better efforts at Haydock and Carlisle, both from 1lb higher, entitle him to respect with his age allowance to assist.

3-50 so far, all those wins being over this trip and on good/good to firm going. 2lb higher than the best of those here, but 3lb claimed and she is not ruled out.

Betting

Forecast

Dirchill (13/2), Spirit Of Wedza (13/2), Mr Strutter (7/1), Extrasolar (17/2), Etikaal (10/1), Suitcase 'n' Taxi (10/1), Zorawar (10/1), Rantan (11/1), Jessie Allan (14/1), Point Of Woods (14/1), Fard (14/1), Thello (16/1), Scuzeme (16/1)

Verdict

An open contest where the suggestion is RANTAN, whose Ripon run two starts ago gives him decent claims, provided of course that he can come up with something similar. Numerous others could have a say, with Dirchill one of them, Mr Strutter an obvious contender, Extrasolar, Spirit Of Wedza, Fard and Jessie Allan all difficult to write off.
