6/1

Winner of a maiden and two handicaps in Ireland for Aidan O'Brien. Only average efforts in two starts for Charlie Appleby, but it is still early days for him at this stable and a better display is on the cards.

Good form despite being out of the frame in two competitive handicaps in the autumn. Runs off the same mark on seasonal reappearance and has to enter calculations.

Fair efforts on the AW earlier this year, but is not quite the same force on the Flat (0-5). Stable showing signs of hitting form and jockey booking catches the eye.

Back to winning ways when scoring by a head at Chelmsford earlier this month. Reverts to turf off 4lb higher mark, which may just find him out from his wide draw.

Good second over an extended mile at Nottingham on return to action, but failed to build on that at Longchamp on his latest outing. Looks to be high enough in the weights.

Big step forward when second of 14 at Doncaster last month. Runs off the same mark and has each-way claims if in the same mood.

Runner-up in a 17-runner contest over C&D in the autumn when trained by Marco Botti. Not in the same form on the AW for current trainer, but return to turf may spark a revival.

Having his second start for this stable after leaving David O'Meara's yard when bolting up by 5L at Newcastle. Up 9lb, but interesting that he has waited for this meeting before reappearing and returning to grass.

Good second of eight at Pontefract last month, but not to that standard on latest start at Ripon. Runs off the same mark and has prospects if returning to that earlier form.

Three wins from eight AW starts, but is effective on turf and tackles his longest distance so far. Stable in decent form.

Scored twice over 1m2f last year and was far from disgraced when out of the frame on final start at Nottingham. Makes his seasonal reappearance and faces a tough task.

Betting

Forecast

Uae Prince (15/8), Big Kitten (4/1), Lucius Tiberius (6/1), Grandee (13/2), Mistiroc (8/1), The Emperor Within (9/1), Tough Remedy (11/1), Society Red (12/1), Mythical Madness (16/1), Abe Lincoln (20/1), Scottish Summit (25/1), Kyllachy Gala (50/1)

Verdict

An open handicap in which cases can be made for several of the runners, not least BIG KITTEN, who looked a little unlucky to be beaten on the line by Mythical Madness last time and can turn the tables with draw and weights in his favour. Tough Remedy is respected for a stable in form, while others to consider include Grandee, Uae Prince, Abe Lincoln and Mistiroc.
