Still a maiden after 22 starts now but if any yard can squeeze a win out of him it will be this one. Can be forgiven a poor run last time as he was pitched wide for a lot of the race over 6f at Wolverhampton. Steps up in trip here.

Can be very hit and miss but well capable at this level on a going day. Remains 4lb higher than when winning at Wolverhampton in January and now needs to bounce back from a real poor effort back there last time.

Yet to win and best efforts to date have come over further than this. Well held at Kempton (1m3f) latest and now comes back in trip. Needs to find more.

Bounced back to form with a good effort over C&D behind the thriving Irish Times (runs 8.00) here last time. That's fair form for the grade and will be right in the mix if able to reproduce that here.

Has shown very little in terms of ability and has only had two starts now in nearly two years suggesting there have been some issues. Entitled to need the run on first start for a new yard after nine months off and cheekpieces go on.

Winner at Wolverhampton (1m1½f) two starts back. Not as good off this 2lb higher mark behind Irish Times and Sea Shack last time. Adam Kirby back on board today and needs to bounce back.

Only had two starts so far this year and hasn't fared too badly. Not beaten all that far from a wide draw at Wolverhampton last time. Needs to improve on what we have seen of late though to be considered a win prospect.

Gained first success at Wolverhampton (7f) three starts back. Remained in similar form since and going back up in trip here looks well worth a go. Luke Morris up and has place claims at least.

Won on turf from an 19lb higher mark but is another whose better days seem to already be behind him. Well held at Kempton last time and has to race from out of the weights here. Up against it.

Old boy who certainly knows where the winning line is. Hasn't won since June however and has to race form out the weights here. Capable on a going day but likely to find a couple too good all the same.

Previous C&D winner that has not been in great heart of late. Well beaten off a steady pace here last time and is racing from out of the weights here.

Barely beaten a rival home in three starts. Starts life in handicaps off a basement mark but needs to show a bundle of improvement all the same from a wide draw. Hard to fancy unless the market screams his name.

Betting

Forecast

Amor Fati (5/2), Sea Shack (3/1), Monsieur Fox (9/2), Admiral Rooke (10/1), Cooperess (11/1), Pocket Warrior (12/1), Malaysian Boleh (14/1), Rapid Rise (16/1), Diamond Reflection (16/1), Dukes Meadow (20/1), Shovel It On (33/1), Dunstall Dreamer (50/1)

Verdict

This is wide open and small stakes may be the best option. SEA SHACK is the tentative pick given how well he ran behind Irish Times here last time. Amor Fati will go close if bouncing back and Admiral Rooke may still improve for the move to Mick Appleby.
