Emphatic 6L win at Leicester over 7f at Leicester last week and that performance had been coming. 2lb well in today and has won on this surface. Drop back in trip a slight concern but does have form at this shorter trip.

Three wins this season have been at 7f and 1m would put him in the mix here but below par last two runs and having a rare run here now over 6f.

A/W debut. Hasn't quite managed to build on Brighton win in September but yard among the winners and may have a bit more to come.

Maiden who has been out of sorts recently but did run well here in May and hopes rest on a return to this surface inspiring him.

Plenty of form at this track including a 7f win a year ago. Ran well in a stronger race at Ascot when last seen in May and if ready to go after absence is a big threat.

Won at Wolverhampton in April 2017 but very lightly raced since and shown very little. Usually seen at the minimum trip and has stamina to prove over 6f.

Well beaten in two runs since joining current yard and something to prove at present. Fairly treated if bouncing back but only beat one home in only previous visit to this venue.

Not seen since bought for £7,500 after finishing third in a seller at Lingfield last December. Has presumably had problems since and this her first attempt beyond the minimum trip.

Betting

Forecast

Young John (8/11), Coviglia (4/1), Insurplus (9/2), Munfallet (7/1), Dusty (12/1), Kingofmerrows (14/1), Lord Cooper (20/1), Tonkolili (33/1), Bahango (40/1)

Verdict

The drop in trip is a slight concern but it's still hard to escape the claims of YOUNG JOHN after his runaway victory last week. Insurplus is the likely danger if he is fit to go after his six months break while Dusty completes the short list.
