Has finished last on both tries over this trip on the Flat, but stamina seems her forte at shorter, and she kept on dourly to score over 1m4f here last time. Should continue in form, although not an obvious type to defy a penalty.

Back to form on last two starts, most recently 1¾L third of 13 to Pepper Street in 1m6f handicap at Ffos Las. Untried at 2m, but should stay, and claims for all he remains a maiden.

Took advantage of lenient Flat mark to win over 2m2f at Chepstow and has since run well over hurdles at Kelso. Revised rating is still workable, and this useful sort is not fully exposed in this sphere despite his age.

Only win from 18 starts came in 1m2f Nottingham handicap last year on good ground. Best recent effort when second at Thirsk (1m4f) in August, but didn't seem to stay 1m6f at Musselburgh on latest start.

Has a poor strike-rate (1-32), but running well at present, and would have been closer at Pontefract without a tardy start. Has no secrets from the handicapper, but holds solid enough place claims on balance.

Has plenty of ability, but doesn't always give it all when required, and strike rate in recent times is poor. Back to form when second at Musselburgh (1m6f) last time, but not sure to build on that.

Had been frustrating for a number of trainers until making all to win a weak 2m handicap at Ripon in August. Seen to maximum effect there, and opposable on balance unless a tongue tie brings improvement.

Has won twice this year at up to 1m1f, and back to form when second over 1m at Hamilton last time. Does stay a little further, but this drastic step up in trip is something of a gamble.

Only made debut in this sphere early this year, so unexposed despite his age, and won readily in a 1m6f handicap at Redcar last time, his first turf outing on the Flat. Could still be ahead of the assessor despite a 6lb rise. Cheekpieces retained.

Over two years without a win, and more bad runs than good ones for current yard. Not disgraced over hurdles on penultimate start, but ran a stinker at Stratford last time, and hard to support now.

Stablemate of Pack It In, and like that one, he's been in action over hurdles this summer. Not disgraced on return to the Flat at Bath last time, making late headway, and place claims if that has brought him on.

Went very close over this trip at Ffos Las (1m4f, heavy) on his penultimate start despite taking a grip, and was again too free when failing to see things out at Haydock. Can do better, but must settle if he is to stay this longer trip.

Runner-up at Wetherby (1m6f) in May on latest Flat start, and better than ever over hurdles since, winning at Cartmel and finishing second at that venue when last seen. Should stay this trip, and one to consider in return from a break.

On a lengthy losing run, and while he wasn't disgraced when fourth of 10 to Ice Galley at Redcar last time, he had the run of things there, and he is easy enough to oppose once more.

Unexposed granted a test of stamina, and showed his best form when 3 lengths third of 13 to Massini's Trap in a 2m2f handicap at Chepstow last time. No surprise to see her improve further, for all drop in trip isn't ideal.

Forecast

Massini's Trap (7/2), Poucor (7/1), Cue's Folly (7/1), Betancourt (15/2), Booborowie (15/2), Urban Spirit (8/1), Thahab Ifraj (12/1), Allfredandnobell (12/1), Flower Power (16/1), St Andrews (20/1), Falcon's Fire (22/1), Aelius (33/1), Adrakhan (50/1), Highwayman (50/1), Pack It In (125/1)

Verdict

BETANCOURT and Massini's Trap are thoroughly unexposed in this sphere despite their hurdling experience, and the pair appear to be still capable of further progress on the Flat, with Stef Keniry's 8-y-o just favoured. Alfredandnobell is coming off a break, but should be suited by this trip and was better than ever over hurdles in the summer.
