4-38 record with two of those victories coming this year. This easier than last time but he remains 5lb above his last turf winning mark.

Consistent this season and handles a bit of cut in the ground. Has done all his winning in lower grades but has gone close at this level.

Consistent performer in Class 4/5 company. That has come at a price and a further rise for a game defeat may have taken this out of his reach.

Has risen through the ranks this year and now just 1lb higher than latest success. Earns that drop having found 6f too far last time,

Won two of his seven starts in 2017 but well beaten on his return from an absence last month and best watched until promising more.

Good efforts back-to-back at Epsom and Sandown. Nudged up for next two starts but back to a more realistic mark here.

Rattled off a hat-trick, including a C&D success, before racing alone on the wrong side here last time. Off the best part of six months since and may need this prior to a winter campaign.

Now a 12-race maiden but signs at Newcastle last week that new yard were close to sorting him out. Another positive ride on this easier track may be the answer.

Likes to force the issue but this 13-time winner has not won off a mark this high on turf and he also has a lengthy absence to overcome.

2-24 and placed on 11 occasions. Could have won more if finding more in a finish and this looks highly competitive.

Looked better than this as a juvenile but his form has been in and out this term. Gelded since last run in June and the market will guide if that has solved his issues.

Subject of a gamble at Salisbury last time but once again he lacked the ability to quicken at a crucial stage. Looks opposable at present.

Has won on good to firm, but tends to show his best form when there is cut in the ground. Well handicapped on the best of last year's form, has gone well here when conditions were soft and penultimate run signalled his turn was due.

Finished ninth last time, but looked unlucky having travelled sweetly for a long way only to find it impossible to gain a clear run. May be falsely priced for this as a result but he has ground conditions and the promise of a strong pace to suit.

Forecast

Show Palace (9/2), Hawaam (5/1), Manshood (13/2), May Remain (7/1), Bashiba (8/1), Wiley Post (10/1), Gnaad (10/1), Our Little Pony (10/1), Moonraker (11/1), Bahamian Sunrise (12/1), Airglow (14/1), Suwaan (14/1), Glamorous Rocket (14/1), Samovar (33/1), Rock of Estonia (33/1), Stoneyford Lane (33/1), Come On Dave (40/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for many in this with Glamorous Rocket having sound prospects of continuing her run of form. Manshood will have gone into many notebooks last time although Hawaam, who finished ahead of him at Newcastle, will be fancied to last a bit longer in front on this easier course. Bashiba and Gnaad are reliable enough but looking fully weighted at present, on the other hand SHOW PALACE is 9lb lower than his last winning mark and has a lot in his favour here. The ground would not have been soft enough last time but, should conditions remain favourable, he can fulfil the promise of his penultimate run.
