Best form this season has come over 1½m here, winning in July and twice making the frame in competitive handicaps. Ran well at Newbury last time, but drop back in trip is a concern now.

All three wins in France for Christophe Ferland came on AW, and he's not been seen since finishing second over 1½m at Lingfield in December. Entitled to need this run after a break.

Recorded a hat-trick earlier in the year before failing to justify favouritism on his next two starts. Bounced back to form when second in the mud at Ayr last time, but had run of the race there, and this looks tougher.

Gained a first win since his two-year-old career when successful at Ayr in August, and just did a bit too much on the pace when down the field over C&D last time. Vulnerable to unexposed rivals, though.

Gelded last October but made a good start to the season by winning on his return in May. Has coped well with step up to 1¼m when runner-up at Sandown and Newbury. Collared on the line last time, and should give another good account.

Gained first success since a hat-trick in 2015 when a winner at Doncaster at the end of last summer, and best effort this season when third of 8 to Mafaaheem at Ayr last time, with Aasheq second. Needs more in this tougher race.

Sole win came at 1m on AW, but stays further, and better than result when third of 5 to Byron Flyer in handicap at Doncaster last time, seeming to find stiff 1½m too much of a test. Drop in trip should help now.

Has gained two wins over an extended 1m this summer, and improved at this trip when a close third to Buzz at Newbury last time, keeping on well having been poorly placed. Needs to avoid slow starts which have become a feature of late.

Has won three of his last four at 1m, and showed he didn't need to dominate when producing a career best at Sandown last time, beating subsequent Cambridgeshire runner-up Mordin. Has form at 1¼m, and not dismissed despite another hike in weights.

Runner-up on first two starts this term, and possibly in need of the run (led at steady pace) when down the field at Newbury on handicap bow last month. Improvement needed, even if that is the case.

Has contested a number of top handicaps this season without success, and appreciated the step up in trip and easier task when winning over 1½m at Haydock last time. Back in deeper water now, but not ruled out.

Won an extended 1m maiden at Nottingham on May debut, and best effort since when fourth of 8 to Sod's Law in 1m handicap at Pontefract last time. Needs to improve for return to this longer trip if he's to be competitive.

Won over C&D in July, and ran creditably to split a couple of these rivals when fifth of 11 to Buzz at Newbury last time. Better placed than most as that went, though, and looks vulnerable from current mark.

Winless this year, but competitive on form, and shaped quite well when fourth of 8 to Communique in 1½m handicap at Newbury last time. Better than bare result there, and no forlorn hope having eased slightly in the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Mountain Angel (4/1), Finniston Farm (7/1), My Lord And Master (8/1), Aasheq (9/1), Pacify (9/1), Alternative Fact (9/1), Highbrow (9/1), Banditry (10/1), Erik The Red (12/1), Aquarium (16/1), Exhort (16/1), Majboor (18/1), M C Muldoon (20/1), Kings Gift (25/1), Primero (50/1)

Verdict

MOUNTAIN ANGEL has been second on both starts at this trip, and was only caught in the dying strides at Newbury last time, so looks the way to go in a tricky opener. Aquarium has developed a habit of missing the break, but went close at Newbury despite that, and will play a big part if he can get off on terms. Highbrow didn't get home after looking the winner at Doncaster last time, and the drop back in trip should be a benefit to him here.
