Yet to add to sole success but two solid runs so far this season. Would have preferred softer conditions and probably needs some help from the handicapper to get his head in front again.

Won three of his first four before running a fair fourth in a strong York handicap on his first try at this trip. Absent since May but goes well fresh and open to plenty of improvement.

Yet to match last season's form and although by Nathaniel didn't convince over this far on his previous try at this C&D. Soft ground looks to be a key factor and other look stronger candidates.

Has raced to a consistent standard in three starts so far this season and 3lb better off for a half length defeat with What A Welcome at Ascot. Top jockey booked again and likely to go close.

Rise in distance won't be a problem after two good efforts over 1m2f at Sandown. However looks weighted up to his best now and extra required in this class.

Proved progressive last year in winning four and although yet to add to that tally this campaign, was a good second at Salisbury last time. Back on last winning mark but this looks a tough ask.

Disappointing in four starts since winning first two on the AW. Gelded since last run in July and others preferred.

Just 2lb higher than sole win but stamina still to prove at this far and needs to bounce back from two disappointing runs.

Betting

Forecast

Nathan (7/2), Perfect Illusion (4/1), Now Children (5/1), What A Welcome (5/1), Temple Church (11/2), Compton Mill (11/2), Infrastructure (6/1), You're Hired (13/2), Ashington (8/1), C'Est No Mour (12/1), He's Amazing (12/1), Guns of Leros (12/1), Seafarer (12/1), Emenem (20/1)

Verdict

You're Hired has gone close in all three starts this campaign and looks sure to be involved again after his second to WHAT A WELCOME. The latter just keeps on winning and although he has to find more again off these terms, his tremendous attitude at the business end makes him a hard rival to defeat. Now Children is unlikely to have reached his full potential yet and is interesting after an absence while Infrastructure is respected if lining up.
