5/2

C&D winner with an aptitude for quick ground and form in better company than this. Starts the season on a fair mark and probably the one to beat.

Has a reliable profile and today's mark looks tempting as he is 2lb lower than his last success at Lingfield. He was unlucky to bump into a big improver on his reappearance, when it paid to sit closer to the pace, and his claims are hard to ignore.

All four wins have come on AW although he has gone close here previously. Not disgraced off today's revised mark at Musselburgh but he will need to improve on that to win this.

Versatile performer who is 9-67 on the Flat and has been placed 22 times. Effective from 7f-1m4f and has also won over hurdles. It is a while since he's been competitive from this sort of mark, but he is not a horse who can be discounted easily.

Ex Jim-Bolger resident who was runner-up to Saxon Warrior on debut and easily landed a Gowran handicap (9.5f) in June. New trip, eight month layoff and lack of cheekpieces raise concerns.

Nicely bred colt switched yards for 62,000 gns having won on debut for Sir Michael Stoute and ending 2018 with a fair effort at Newcastle. Headgear on for stable bow with improvement required.

Lightly-raced four-year-old was sent off favourite for a higher class race two weeks ago and looked beaten when hampered. Has to be considered at this level off a 2lb lower mark.

Credit to his former trainer, as he has his quirks, and whilst he retains ability, his last Flat win outside of the Channel Islands was over five years ago.

Had shown next to nothing before springing an 80-1 surprise at Wolverhampton over this trip. Back to previous more modest level and she looks out her league leaping from class 6.

Betting

Forecast

Bayshore Freeway (5/2), Petrastar (4/1), Hollywood Road (5/1), Given Choice (11/2), Hareeq (8/1), Meagher's Flag (8/1), Jacbequick (10/1), Cry Wolf (14/1), Bleu Et Noir (25/1), Hell Of A Lady (66/1), Rossetti (66/1)

Verdict

BAYSHORE FREEWAY may carry topweight, but she should have improvement in her as this is just her second season, whilst her 2018 form indicated she can hold her own against better horses than these. She is fairly treated and handles the conditions. Petrastar was backed to make a winning handicap debut in higher grade but flopped, however he's been given some assistance by the handicapper and will be out to recover losses. Hollywood Road should not be long in winning from this kind of mark, whilst Given Choice improved when sent handicapping and clearly was expected to do a lot better than proved the case last time.
