11/1

Goes well here and gained a second C&D win off this mark in March. Very disappointing on his latest two runs and others preferred on current form.

Is now 4lb worse for a half length second to Lacan in March, however has since improved with a career best performance when gaining a fifth C&D win last time. Should be even better for having two runs back from an absence and likely to go close.

9/2

Winner and placed twice in four AW starts earlier this year and drops back in trip on this return from an absence after being beaten at odds-on over 1m2f. Unsuited by slow tempo there and although likely to be involved may prefer a stronger test.

First run at this track but well suited by an AW surface. Back down to last winning mark but latest three runs since a break have been poor and more required.

Both wins have come over this trip at Ripon and his latest run at Catterick can be upgraded after not getting a clear run. Step back up in distance will suit and remains unexposed on the AW. Should be involed.

Won well on debut at Newcastle but was soundly beaten on her subsequent start in Meydan. Should be better for return over 1m2f here and the drop back in trip but more required off this mark on handicap debut.

Gets a welcome drop in class after struggling in the Ayr Bronze Cup and at Newmarket on his latest start. However others preferred on balance of this summer's form.

Beaten favourite in three of four starts since Haydock maiden win. Tailed off when suffering a breathing problem on return from a break and may be best watched for now.

Has won over 7f here off 1lb higher and gone close previously over this C&D. Mark is starting to plummet after not showing anywhere near the same level of form as last winter and much more needed now.

13-race maiden but has looked well suited by this surface previously and went close when dropped back to this trip at Windsor. Faces tougher opposition but likely there's more to come.

Betting

Forecast

Caring Touch (7/2), Najashee (7/2), Bobby K (9/2), London (7/1), Samphire Coast (8/1), Fleeting Freedom (8/1), Lacan (11/1), Weellan (12/1), Dark Alliance (20/1), Robero (33/1)

Verdict

SAMPHIRE COAST clearly benefited for his first run back and loves this C&D having won with plenty in hand here last time. Weellan could well have scored if he hadn't met trouble when delivering his run over shorter and looks the main danger. Bobby K is lightly-raced and respected but may be better when getting a truly run race over further. Fleeting Freedom is also open to plenty of progress following a career-best effort and the switch back to the AW should suit.
