6/1

4lb higher than when winning by a neck over this trip at Ascot in July (good to firm); fairly mixed fortunes since, but likely to appreciate this drop back into a Class 4 handicap.

8/1

7f specialist who has won 9 of his 65 career starts, including twice on a fast surface at Leicester in 2018; 3lb above his last winning mark, and never involved (seventh) behind all the way winner Tadaawol at Redcar latest.

13-race maiden; returning from a four-month break when finishing fifth of seven at Yarmouth (1m) on Wednesday; drop back in trip helpful; runner-up in a C&D maiden in April (good to soft).

Fast-finishing second at Chepstow (7f, soft) in June, and racing from a 2lb lower mark today; the more rain the merrier (would enhance his chances massively), but just 2-34 overall and that's off-putting.

Fairly solid and mainly progressive throughout his brief racing career; off the mark on the AW at Lingfield (7f novice) earlier this month, and should fare better today than on handicap bow at Newbury (1m) immediately prior.

No win since November 2017 (5f, AW), but has raced fairly consistently in the main in 6f Class 4 handicaps throughout 2018; staying on third at Ascot latest, so certainly worth trying over 7f.

Winner on the beach at Laytown (7f) on his first start for Jamie Osborne; well handicapped on that occasion (able to run off his turf handicap mark on sand -14lb lower); 1-16 on turf.

Beaten just over ½L (third) over 5f on the July Course last month, but less pleasing since and has dropped a further 3lb in the weights; hasn't raced over 7f since July 2016; stablemate of Glenn Coco.

50% AW strike-rate (2-4), but remains a maiden on turf (0-9), that said; is running well lately - held by just a neck at Yarmouth (7f) on his penultimate start; respected in a slightly stronger contest; stablemate of Compas Scoobie.

Forecast

Florencio (3/1), Ambient (4/1), Game Player (6/1), Perfect Hustler (6/1), Blazed (8/1), Firmdecisions (8/1), Colonel Frank (8/1), Fox Trotter (12/1), Glenn Coco (14/1), Compas Scoobie (25/1)

Verdict

A tight affair where Fox Trotter would become of more interest should the ground change significantly. Glenn Coco has threatened to win a race on turf, and is almost certainly capable of doing so, whilst Lingfield AW winner Game Player is open to improvement in handicaps (lacks experience). However, the selection is PERFECT HUSTLER. He was a winner at Ascot in July and despite suffering mixed fortunes since, there have been mitigating circumstances; namely he was restless in the stalls (Kempton), and raced in a more competitive Class 3 handicap latest (Leicester).
  1. Perfect Hustler
