11/1

Won on debut, and best effort when landing a 6f novice here under a penalty in July. Not disgraced in better contests since, and should enjoy this easier task, although does have to conclusively prove that he stays this far.

Didn't need to improve on debut form when landing a 6f maiden at Nottingham in July, and found the jump to Listed company too much at Doncaster last time. This is easier, and he's worth another chance to progress.

Second in a Goodwood maiden on debut, and bounced back from disappointing run in a valuable contest at York to score at Musselburgh last time. Made hard work of that simple task, but much respected on debut effort.

Made a really promising start at Newmarket in July, and a big player if finding that form, but he's failed to go on as expected in three starts since, and looking expensive to follow.

Failed to score for Tom Dascombe, but got it right on debut for new yard at Thirsk (7f, soft) on penultimate start, and much better than the result when fourth on heavy at Ayr last time. Must show he's not reliant on testing ground, but respected.

Improved when a close fourth in a 7f novice at Yarmouth on penultimate start, and backed that up with a good second over 6f at Pontefract last time. Handicapper has been lenient with his opening mark, and he should go very close.

Off the mark on soft ground at Thirsk in August, and has run well on both starts since, needing stronger handling when runner-up in a C&D nursery last time. Creeping up the weights, but will remain competitive.

Ghost Queenv8(ex 6)
28-7OR: 68CD
9/2

Was looking exposed, but fitting of a visor seemed to deliver marked improvement when she made all to land a C&D nursery last time. No guarantee of an easy lead here, but she's clearly ahead of her mark under a penalty.

Has shown plenty of ability, but still tends to race too freely, and not progressing as a result, with both runs in nurseries no more than respectable.

Betting

Forecast

Al Mureib (11/4), Reeves (7/2), Ghost Queen (9/2), Theatre Of War (13/2), Stronsay (9/1), Artistic Rifles (10/1), Kuwait Station (11/1), Sky Defender (14/1), Five Amarones (14/1), Loch Ness Monster (14/1)

Verdict

GHOST QUEEN was much improved when making all over C&D last time, and is well-in under a penalty, so will be hard to beat for all it won't be so easy to dominate. Reeves goes handicapping off a lenient mark, and looks a big danger, with Sky Defender and Loch Ness Monster respected on the promise of their respective debut runs.
