Inconsistent performer, particularly on turf but produced one of his better efforts at Chelmsford last time. Stays this far but this looks competitive and others preferred.

Useful when he gets his conditions and has been in good form in recent times including a win at Haydock and a fair effort in defeat over C&D last time. Recent dry spell isn't in his favour though and needs rain to be seen at his best over this trip.

Versatile sort with regards to both ground and trip, as shown when winning in soft conditions at Newmarket last time over this distance. On the upgrade this year and has won over C&D so can't be ruled out despite a 6lb higher mark.

Won at Leicester from a 1lb lower mark just over a year ago. Has returned to form with some more encouraging efforts this autumn and gets just about his optimum conditions here; interesting runner.

Won twice last year but had been struggling prior to an improved effort at Newmarket last time when third of eight. Needs to build on that but useful apprentice takes the ride and can't be ruled out.

Won twice last year, including here and has returned to form towards the end of the campaign with an impressive win at York before a respectable effort from his revised mark last time. Worth another go at this trip.

In good form on AW last winter but yet to show anything in four starts for his new yard, including when well beaten in an optional claimer at Newcastle last time. Handicap mark has become very lenient but hard to fancy on current form.

Has won twice this year and had been running consistently well prior to a disappointing run when favourite at Newbury last time. Step back up in trip in her favour and a promising apprentice claims 7lb; can't be ruled out.

Very impressive when winning over course and distance on his second start since an absence last time out. 3lb rise underestimates him and he's less exposed than most in here.

Has looked a shade unlucky not to get her head in front in 12 starts this year. Drop back in trip is in her favour and while still above her last winning mark, one suspects she has a race such as this in her having run well in some Listed events.

Won a Thirsk handicap from a 1lb lower mark in August but has seemingly gone off the boil in three starts since. Others probably better handicapped.

Won a minor event in France and returned to that sort of level with a placed effort at Kempton last time. Vulnerable off the same mark here in what is a much deeper contest.

Yet to place in six starts this year but his best efforts have come on a quicker surface and his chance would improve if the rain stayed away. Probably better over 1m though and others make more appeal.

Won twice earlier in the campaign but form has tailed off in recent starts. Still above his last winning mark and seemingly better over further than this trip.

C&D Winner. His better effort in recent times have come in claiming/selling company and he would need the ground to get soft to be seen at his best. Probably better over 1m and others preferred.

C&D winner back in 2016 but his wins since have come on AW. Running well in defeat in recent starts prior to shaping as if amiss when last seen. This may be a prep run for another AW campaign and others preferred.

A two-time C&D winner last year and got a win on AW in the summer but his two starts last month suggest he's struggling at present; may struggle from 2lb out of the handicap here.

Forecast

Verdict

A competitive opener to 2018's last Flat meeting on turf and last year's winning trainer, Keith Dalgleish, saddles TOUGH REMEDY who appears to have been let in lightly after a course and distance success last time out. He's less exposed than most in here and represents a yard in flying form at present. Tangled shaped like a return to form was imminent last time and both Captain Jameson and Reckless Endeavour get useful apprentices in the saddle.
