69-11OR: 100BFCD
8/1

Remains 4lb higher than last winning mark which came over two years ago. Consistent enough in this grade and this looks slightly easier than some of his recent contests.

Taken out of the 2017 Cambridgeshire and he has not been seen since the 2016 equivalent. Obvious claims if fit and the market will be informative.

Ended a losing streak to score at Haydock when the strong pace was in his favour. Has fared less well off higher marks since and, with no obvious pacemaker in this, he has work to do.

Bounced back to land a gamble here and went close from a favourable draw in similar company on Saturday. Not as well drawn here but has to be feared on a track he clearly likes.

Had gone close in two races here before finding a valuable prize at the Curragh too competitive. Handicap mark is up with events.

Took advantage of a good mark to score over 1m2f here in July. Equally effective at this trip and this easier than last time.

Impressive in both Ripon victories and not disgraced at the Goodwood Festival in between. Both his dam and half-brother were successful on AW surfaces and the jockey booking can be considered another positive.

Dual C&D winner this year from marks of 80 and 82 so respected under a rider who is good value for his claim.

Betting

Forecast

Very Talented (11/8), Rufus King (10/3), Restive Spirit (5/1), Firmament (8/1), Greatest Journey (8/1), Glory Awaits (14/1), Singyoursong (20/1), Mythical Madness (33/1)

Verdict

AW debutant RESTIVE SPIRIT is bred to handle the surface and showed a great attitude to score last time. The handicapper has been lenient and he can get the better of Rufus King who went close in similar company on Saturday. Singyoursong will find this easier than last time, whilst 2016 Cambridgeshire third Very Talented has not been seen since and connections will be keen to get a run into him before this year's equivalent.
