99-9OR: 76BFCD

His 13 career wins have included six over C&D and a sound or fast surface suits. Excellent efforts when runner-up here the last twice, and respected despite creeping further up the weights.

49-7OR: 74

Reliable filly who won at Doncaster in April, and ran a creditable 1¼L third of 7 to Eastern Racer at Thirsk last time after a break. Wide draw not ideal, but will give it her best shot.

79-6OR: 73CD

Goes well here, with two C&D wins to his name this season, the more recent from this mark. Stuck very wide when keeping on into sixth of 16 to Musharrif here last time, and has again been unlucky with the draw.

59-6OR: 73D

Best form in the mud at Pontefract, and runner-up in those conditions there in May. Not in same heart since, however, and opposable despite getting best of the draw.

59-4OR: 71BFD

Front-runner who improved to win at Brighton last month, and ran at least as well when third at Chelmsford last time. No easy task dominating here, but not dismissed.

49-4OR: 71D

Won at Chester in June, but a long way below that level since, and slim hopes rest on him being sparked back to form by the fitting of eyeshields for the first time.

69-3OR: 70D

Hard to win with, but ran well when second at Haydock and Pontefract earlier in the summer. Form has tailed off on recent starts, however, and badly drawn here, so passed over.

69-3OR: 70CD

Suited by big-field scenario and took advantage of reduced mark when beating Bondi Beach Boy in 16-runner handicap here last time. Still fairly handicapped, but no so well drawn now.

69-3OR: 70D

Not the force of old, and while he's been running respectably in handicaps of late, he's not really shaping like a winner in waiting, and wide draw merely adds to that feeling.

59-2OR: 69D

Much her best recent effort when runner-up at Ayr in June. In and out since, although latest effort when badly hampered is easy enough to forgive. Cheekpieces, worn for first time there, are retained.

49-1OR: 68BFD

Won at Wolverhampton in April, and not disgraced on return from a break at Chelmsford last month, but recent form on turf not so good, and easy enough to take on here.

39-1OR: 69CD

Won at Hamilton in June from 1lb lower, and consistent in defeat since. Handicapper has given him a chance after latest respectable effort at Carlisle, and he shouldn't be far away.

59-0OR: 67

Better on Fibresand than turf, but mark now reflecting that fact, and he was back to form when second of 14 to Moonraker at Southwell last time. Just 3lb above last winning turf mark, and can go well.

48-11OR: 64CD

Everything dropped right when he returned to winning form in a 0-70 handicap here last month, and he needed no excuses when third at Catterick last time. This grade asks a sterner question, especially with a wide draw.

38-9OR: 63D

Winner of a low-grade handicap at Musselburgh in July, and ran well next time. Not so good in recent outings, however, and eyeshields reached for now. Is at least well drawn.

58-7OR: 59CD

Last couple of wins have come in 0-60 company, most recently here last month. Had excuses for a moderate effort last time, but this looks a little bit too competitive.

58-7OR: 57CD

In fine heart at present, winning a pair of low-grade handicaps at Chepstow from the front this summer. Out of the weights here, but well berthed to attack, so not entirely dismissed.

Betting

Forecast

Musharrif (6/1), Van Gerwen (6/1), Entertaining Ben (13/2), Bondi Beach Boy (15/2), Sky Gypsy (10/1), Fumbo Jumbo (10/1), Arnold (11/1), Tricky Dicky (11/1), David's Beauty (12/1), Cameo Star (12/1), Granny Roz (12/1), Scoundrel (16/1), Twentysvnthlancers (18/1), Patrick (20/1), Foxtrot Knight (22/1), Computable (25/1), Desert Ace (28/1)

Verdict

He may be better at Southwell, but TRICKY DICKY looked better than ever on Fibresand last time, and is fairly handicapped even on his turf form. He's taken to make the most of a good draw, which hasn't been so kind to Bondi Beach Boy and Musharrif, although that pair pulled clear in a similar event over C&D earlier in the month, and should remain competitive.
