Scored here over 7f last July but seems equally effective over this trip and arrives here in form having won at Yarmouth in August and been second there last month as well. 3lb rise won't make life easy though.

Won at Hamilton in June off 1lb higher mark but has struggled since then, although hasn't been disgraced in two decent events last couple of outings. Slipping back down the weights and is not without a chance.

Gained reward for some consistent efforts when winning at Lingfield last time last time with a bit to spare. 5lb higher but a simlar effort would give her every chance of being in the money.

Previous C&D winner but still 3lb higher than last race success which came at Brighton in August under today's jockey. Fair third at Salisbury latest so shouldn't be at all far away once again

Promising juvenile last year winning first two otuings before finishing last of four in Newmarket nursery. Gelded and missed 14 months after and shaped as though the run would bring him on when fading inside the distance at Salisbury last time.

1-9 in France for Freddy Head, and pulled hard before fading fast and finishing last of 14 on debut for new yard at Ascot last month. Has plenty to prove.

Won four handicaps last year at up to 5.5 furlongs and best effort this season when runner up over this C&D on penultimate start. Speedy and still uncertain he stays this distance so may find a few too good once again.

Has struggled on most starts this season and consequently dropped 13lb since the spring but hasn't looked a winner-in-waiting of late and will do well to make his presence felt here.

Kust 2-29 to date but has run plenty of good races in defeat and should really have won more. Good third at Goodwood last time and top jockey rides again so appears to have plenty going for him in a slightly easier event.

Beaten a long way in Ayr Bronze Cup last time but has run a couple of decent races prior to that without troubling the judge. Seems better on turf and yet to win on this surface but cannot be completely ruled out of the equation.

Scored twice at Brighton this season over minimum trip and back to winnable mark, so any sign of market confidence would be interesting in an open race.

Betting

Forecast

Rose Berry (9/2), Handytalk (11/2), Lightning Charlie (6/1), Mutanaaseq (13/2), Jack Taylor (8/1), Human Nature (9/1), Our Lord (9/1), Mujassam (16/1), The Gates Of Dawn (16/1), Music Society (16/1), Buccaneers Vault (20/1), Al Asef (20/1)

Verdict

There are a host of horses with a chance in a very open affair but marginal preference is for ROSE BERRY who won with a little bit in hand last time and is reunited with the talented Jason Watson. Handytalk could be a big danger having gone close at Goodwood last time, while top weight Human Nature and the still unexposed Mutanaaseq are both well capable of playing their part.
