1m4f Goodwood winner in May was disappointing over C&D here next before finding Listed race too hot last time out after a break. Strip fitter now and only 2lb higher than Goodwood win so better can be expected.

Nine-time winner at up to 1m4f was narrowly touched off over 1m2f here two starts back before a shade disappointing next at Kempton. 1lb lower now and repeat of recent run here would put him firmly in the mix.

9/2

On a hat-trick after two Yarmouth scores over 1m2f and 1m3½f latest. Gets another 5lb tacked on here but clearly progressing well at the end of his three-year-old year and has to enter considerations once again here.

Dual 1m2f winner this season paid the price for another good effort penultimately with latest handicap rise seeing him struggle at Bath (last of five) although 1m not ideal. Trip here should be fine and form overall has been good.

2017 C&D winner bolted up on soft ground at Epsom penultimately before taking a big step up in class in a valuable Irish handicap where he finished midfield. 7lb higher than Epsom but likes trip, course and ground so hard to see him not going close.

1m2f Wetherby scorer hasn't been disgraced in any of his subsequent starts with a second and two third before latest fourth at Wolverhampton for which he gets 1lb back. Still has to prove effectiveness beyond 1m2f and others appeal more.

Only 1lb higher now than Chester win over 1m2½f back in May but not really performed to that level since and last two runs at Hamilton and Chester again not seriously competitive so others boast better claims.

3/1

Only won once so far, in 2017 on heavy ground. Made the frame five times this season so remains pretty consistent and stays up to 1m6f. Third and fourth the last twice off same mark as today so place claims again pretty strong.

Betting

Forecast

Hawridge Flyer (3/1), Mr Reckless (4/1), Protected Guest (9/2), Ashington (9/2), Medalla De Oro (5/1), Fast Dancer (7/1), Bid Adieu (7/1), You're Hired (10/1), Noble Gift (20/1), Canberra Cliffs (28/1)

Verdict

MEDALLA DE ORO is two from two here including C&D and fairly hacked up at Epsom two starts back on soft ground so the return here in similar conditions should be very much to his liking. Ashington is considered the biggest threat and he also bolted up two starts back before running another sound race latest when upped in class. Hat-trick seeking Protected Guest is also on the shortlist given his progressive profile.
