Won three times on fast turf last year, and better for return when making all to win at Bath (1¾m) early this month, albeit suited by controlling the pace. A 4lb rise looks fair on balance.

In a first-time visor when winning at Lingfield on penultimate start, and ran very well when third of 12 to Soto Sizzler in Great Metropolitan Handicap at Epsom last time.Should continue to run well.

Enjoyed a very productive 2018, winning four times, and ran a solid race on return here when third of 6 to Claire Underwood over 1½m. Longer trip will suit, and can go close.

Very lightly raced in this sphere since placed in Listed company in 2016. Not shown a great deal over hurdles for current yard, and stiff task back on the Flat now.

Won over 1¾m at Carlisle in June, but he's not been at his best since finishing third at Ripon in August, and soon done with after making the running at Doncaster on his reappearance.

Betting

Forecast

Bayshore Freeway (11/10), Theglasgowwarrior (3/1), Maybe Today (10/3), Stone The Crows (8/1), Daawy (8/1), Ballynanty (10/1), Desert Point (40/1)

Verdict

This is a lot easier than the Great Met in which MAYBE TODAY was a fine third in at Epsom, and he makes much more appeal on balance that Bayshore Freeway, who has thus far been best when bossing small fields, as she did at Bath last time. This track possibly isn't ideal for the strong-staying Theglasgowwarrior, but he'll be suited by the longer trip after finishing third here on his reappearance, and he should pay his way again.
