Decisive winner of a soft ground 6f h'cap on reappearance. Not so good last time but conditions wouldn't have suited; will be much more at home on this softer surface. Riders claim effectively puts him back on last winning mark and goes well fresh

Has shaped on several occasions that he will be better than this mark but also shapes like another furlong will help. Got going too late when well backed at Ffos Las (6f, good to soft) last time and that would be the only worry again here. Player.

Has already won three times this year but can be a bit in-and-out. 4lb higher than for his last win at Goodwood and best efforts come on a sounder surface than today's.

Bounced back to form to win at Newmarket two starts back. Followed that up with a sound effort in a big field contest at The Curragh last time and has sound claims of going well if still in the same form.

Winner over this trip at Pontefract (soft) back in May off a 4lb lower mark. Not been so good since but encounters soft ground for the first time since so has claims of getting involved.

Ony 4lb higher than when winning well at York four starts back. Form can be a bit patchy but he tends to go well in these big fields and is hard to rule out.

Took advantage of a drop in the weights to get back to winning ways at Hamilton last time under similar conditions. Riders claim negates most of the rise and should be a leading contender once more.

Previous C&D winner who is having a superb summer winning three times already. Conditions here are spot on and every chance of seeing another bold showing for this rapidly improving filly.

Having a wonderful time of things having completed a quick-fire Brighton hat-trick. Goes particularly well for this rider but is likely to find this much tougher going that those previous efforts under a double penalty.

Won over C&D (good) back in June and followed up next time at Newcastle (5f, AW). 7lb higher than for the first of those victories and this is much tougher.

Has shown much improved form since joining this yard and is 2-4 so far this year. Only narrowly denied at Thirsk (6f, good) last time and gets to race of the same mark here. Every chance there is more to come

Ultra-consistent handicapper who rarely runs a bad race. These conditions hold absolutely no fears for him and has leading claims of getting involved here once again and should go well.

Only had three starts so far this year and has shown improvement with each run. Only up 2lb for being narrowly denied at Newmarket last time and should be plenty more to come. Respected.

Won twice as a juvenile and although he has run with credit in handicaps this term, he has failed to add to his tally. Should run his race, but looks a little vulnerable at the weights.

Has been shaping like he still has a decent race in him. Caught the eye at Epsom earlier in the year and is handicapped to run well. Would become of interest were he to attract some market support.

Won at Newcastle (6f, AW) three starts back off a 3lb lower mark. Not so good the last twice back on turf but this ground should be to his liking (won on heavy) and riders claim is a big plus. Could go well.

Can be inconsistent but bounced back to form at York (6f, good to soft) last time when only caught close home. Races off the same mark here which gives him live claims but not assured to back that effort up.

Dropped to a tempting mark and ran a strange race at Doncaster last time when well backed. Having led he rallied again late on to finish a close up second. Nudged up 3lb for that but this likely to have been the target for a while and big chance

Having run some good races this year he got his head back in front at Carlisle (6f, good to soft) last time. 5lb rise is fair and capable of going well again.

Forecast

My Amigo (13/2), Equitation (8/1), Dalton (9/1), Start Time (10/1), Kenny The Captain (11/1), Lucky Lucky Man (12/1), Royal Residence (12/1), Gabrial The Devil (12/1), Captain Jameson (12/1), Alaadel (14/1), Tommy G (16/1), Yes You (18/1), Tawny Port (20/1), Red Pike (20/1), Adam's Ale (22/1), Soldier's Minute (22/1), Dark Defender (25/1), Russian Realm (28/1), Pour La Victoire (33/1), John Kirkup (33/1), Robero (33/1), Paddy Power (40/1), Oriental Lilly (50/1), Buccaneers Vault (66/1), Go Far (200/1)

Verdict

A wide-open sprint handicap in which you can make a case for plenty. Equitation is lightly raced and has improved with each start so far this year. He should have more to come and is a player for his powerful yard. Gabirel The Devil rarely runs a bad race and is very dangerous to dismiss once again. Kenny The Captain is another who has conditions to suit and having been so well backed last time should be a force off just 3lb higher. We will take a chance that they will go hard enough here to set this up for ALAADEL who looks sure to be capable of progressing passed his current mark. There is a slight suspicion he'll be better over further but they should go quick enough to set this up here.
  1. Alaadel
  2. Equitation
  3. Kenny The Captain
