11/1

Decent strike-rate, 3-11 this year, though can be hit and miss. Likely found 7f too far on return from short break at Lingfield, with best form over 5f this year. Not out of it here.

Former C&D winner, unable to hit the bullseye on debut for this trainer in Listed event at Lingfield last month but far from disgraced. 1lb lower than his win here last year and cheekpieces back on.

Finished ahead of Gulliver in Listed company recently on first start for new handler, an encouraging effort and interesting to note where he sits in betting now.

Couple of wins on the AW earlier in the year in minor events but looks high enough in the ratings for this sort of race. Others preferred.

Has a pair of C&D wins to his credit since September, hold-up performer that needs some handling but clearly not one to write off.

5f maiden winner at Ripon as a two-year-old in September 2017. Not progressed this year. Has been gelded since leaving previous handler.

Back to form and landed fifth course success when getting up late in the piece over this trip three weeks ago. Just a couple of pounds higher and clearly one to note again if in similar mood.

Filly has been progressing lately, scored with something up her sleeve at Newcastle over this trip last time. Has been raised 7lb for that win and up in grade too. More to come.

Betting

Forecast

Danzan (3/1), Polybius (7/2), Eljaddaaf (4/1), Island Of Life (9/2), Udontdodou (6/1), Gulliver (8/1), Tropics (11/1), Atletico (16/1), Ultimate Avenue (16/1), Mokaatil (25/1)

Verdict

ELJADDAAF likes it around here and was nicely produced to score by young Jack Duern three weeks ago. They are 2lb higher now but a repeat of that run will see them in with a chance, the seven-year-old having seemingly had a bit more in the tank last time. There are plenty dangers lurking. The filly Island Of Life is going the right way and is respected despite a 7lb bump up for her Newcastle score while Gulliver, Udontdodou and Polybius all have form around here that merits inclusion on any shortlist.
