Running respectably without getting his head in front this season, but handicapper has not shown much sympathy. Connections reach for a visor in a bid to find extra.

Blinkered for the first time when scoring over 7f at Doncaster in August, but went up 5lb and was held at Redcar last time. Only 1lb lower and has a bit to find.

Only win in 16 starts came on the AW, but he has run with credit on turf and current handicap mark is not insurmountable. Each-way claims under his talented claimer.

Four of his five wins have come on the AW, but he ran well to be third on turf at Beverley last month. Only 1lb higher than when winning at Chepstow last season.

Maiden after six starts, but has shown ability and is less exposed than the majority of his rivals. Not at his best on the AW last time and return to turf and 2lb drop in the weights could prove an effective mix.

Has hit the frame only once in six starts, but returns from a break after wind surgery and in first-time blinkers. Jockey booking suggests an improved show is on the cards.

Enjoyed a good 2017 season, but has been restricted to two unplaced outings this term. Best watched until showing signs of a revival.

Placed on his last two starts on the AW and returns to turf off the same mark. Jockey booking suggests he is better fancied than stable companion Pursuing Steed.

Has improved since being gelded during the summer and was off the mark at Kempton last time. Up 7lb and return to grass not sure to suit, but top connections are always to be respected.

Sound efforts on last two starts in maiden company. Not badly treated in his first handicap, but has to cope with this much bigger field.

Veteran who holds his form quite well and has performed with credit on his recent outings. Surprising if one or two of these rivals are not better handicapped, but should run his usual sound race,

Improved effort when second of 14 at Leicester, but has been put up 4lb by the handicapper. Shrewd stable continues in good form.

Brighton winner for Luca Cumani, but well held in two outings over 1m2f for current trainer. Drop in trip and weights and the application of cheekpieces needs to spark a revival.

Has not been in the same form as last season and handicap mark continues to tumble. Won off 10lb higher at Ascot last summer so dangerous if bouncing back.

Ripon winner in August and has run with credit since. Might be a little high in the handicap, but is reliable and should be thereabouts.

Scored at Chepstow in August and ran respectably off 4lb higher at Chelmsford last time. Down 1lb and is one of the more likely sorts returned to turf.

Betting

Forecast

Zamandas (4/1), Pure Shores (11/2), Soldiers Bay (8/1), Harlequin Striker (8/1), Climb Aboard (8/1), Fire Tree (10/1), Rhigolter Rose (10/1), He's Our Star (12/1), Showboating (14/1), Roman De Brut (16/1), Glendun (16/1), Vigee Le Brun (16/1), Excelleration (16/1), Pursuing Steed (20/1), Global Melody (20/1), Pacific Salt (33/1), Wilson (66/1)

Verdict

Bottom-weight He's Our Star should be suited by the return to grass and can go well along with the likes of Glendun, Roman De Brut and Vigee Le Brun. Pure Shores and Climb Aboard have chances for shrewd stables and Rhigolter Rose and Zamandas are respected given their connections, but the two who make most appeal are Soldiers Bay and EXCELLERATION, who give the impression they could be better than their current marks. The latter returns to turf off a reduced mark and gets the vote.
  1. Excelleration
  2. Soldiers Bay
  3. He's Our Star
