Better on the AW and has a good bit to prove on this type of ground after failing to beat a rival to the finish line at Leicester earlier in the month. Looks flattered by the position of joint top weight.

Likes Beverley and seems versatile regarding the ground. fair effort at Chelmsford latest gives him place claims once more. (Well treated in comparison to AW rating, so worth a betting check.)

Won well over 1m at Carlisle last time and respected on that effort. The previous form had been shaky at best this season but he does handle cut in the ground and may have more to offer over this new trip. One to monitor.

Possible he'll improve for stepping up to this trip but has been well held on a few occasions since he won over an extended mile at Hamilton in June and it has to be a concern that he disappointed twice previous on soft ground.

Winner at Ripon from a mark of 64 last season, so feasible to suggest the mare has a fair chance at the weights. She does like this course and ought to handle the ground but does need to conclusively prove her stamina will last out.

Lightly raced mare that handled the trip and ground well over C&D last month on what was her handicap debut. Prancing Oscar, who runs earlier on the card, can give a good gauge to the worth of that form. One to bear in mind.

Has acted well at this course before now but was a disappointment on similar ground last time out and is now becoming a maiden that is expensive to follow (0-15).

Not too many miles on the clock and has enjoyed a profitable season with a brace of wins already - the first of which was gained over C&D in a lads race at the start of this month. A poor effort last time out needs to be forgiven though.

Tried to make the running at Hamilton on Sunday but faded in the closing stages. However, this drop in trip may be more to his liking and, considering he went close over C&D in July, the gelding makes the shortlist with ground conditions to suit.

Over two years since his last win and has become a frustrating character to deal with. Ought to handle the ground but is prone to the odd stinker. place claims if he's up for the task today.

Yet to break his duck on turf and form figures are less than impressive when he's been tried with some cut in the ground. Others preferred.

Goes well here and has to be noted that he's well treated in comparison to when he won a division of the 2017 renewal of this race. His form has been a mixed bag since then but he has to be respected given his liking for racing at The Westwood.

Has gone well here on several occasions but was well held in this race behind the likes of John Ceasar and Palindrome in a division of last year's renewal. Also has something to find with Warrior's Spirit after their encounter at Carlisle.

Dropped to a very lenient mark in comparison to her form of the distant past. Did finish fourth of nine here in July but has been inconsistent since then and his losing run now stretches back to November 2016. (Out of the weights here.)

Didn't show much in three maiden last season and failed to impress on her return to the AW at Newcastle last month. It's possible the switch to turf will suit but a huge amount of improvement is still required.

Been a grand servant with plenty of wins on both turf and the AW to his name. However, his recent form has been in a downward spiral and he faces a stiff test from out of the handicap.

Steps up significantly in trip and needs to prove he actually handles truly soft ground. 0-7 so far and no surprise to see the negative statistics being extended after this; well out of the handicap and unproven over the trip. Readily passed over.

Forecast

Palindrome (7/2), Broughtons Story (9/2), Hard Toffee (7/1), John Caesar (7/1), Ventura Crest (8/1), Warrior's Spirit (8/1), Procida (11/1), Whatwouldyouknow (12/1), Dutch Coed (16/1), Rosy Ryan (25/1), Polar Forest (25/1), Outlaw Torn (33/1), Graceful Act (40/1), Medici Moon (40/1), Steel Helmet (50/1), Silken Moonlight (80/1), Magic Ship (100/1)

Verdict

The drop back in trip may be key for PALINDROME reversing last season's form with John Ceasar, in what looks to be a weak renewal of this race. Procida, who doesn't have too many miles on the clock, and Broughtons Story, who has a strong affinity with this course, are a couple of others that can figure at this level. Both are worth noting in the betting.
  1. Palindrome
  2. John Caesar
  3. Procida
