His last two victories have come over C&D and he is now officially rated higher on AW than on turf. May rebound from his last three runs, but will need a career best to do so.

In good form on AW, including two C&D victories, before being drawn on wrong side at Ascot last time. Has potential to deliver more and has to be one the leading contenders,

Both wins have come over 7f, but he stays this far and is down to his last winning mark. That came in a better class race here and he will be fitter for a recent run at Goodwood. Has to be considered a strong contender.

Scored here on debut and highly tried next time. Returned from a year's absence with an uninspiring effort but likely the run was needed. One to note in the market.

Goes well here and much improved over the winter. Just failed to sustain a strong gallop last time, Merchant Of Venice a close third, and has been given a break since. Up another 2lb but should make another bold bid.

Form of her fist two starts has not worked out well enough to warrant her current mark. Less highly tried than last time, but others look more appealing.

Heavily supported when dead-heating at Newmarket in 2018 before an unsuccessful couple of runs over further. Well-backed when fifth in a blanket finish on AW debut last time and better drawn here.

Half-brother to Breton Rock just lasted home on his debut, but was more settled when landing a poor race at Bath last time. Handicap mark looks fair enough, but he is going to be more severely tested here against more streetwise rivals.

Completed a hat-trick in 2017 but winless since. Has run some good races in defeat off similar marks to today's and she will strip fitter for her comeback run. Makes each-way appeal.

Dual C&D winner who was a comfortable scorer at Southwell three weeks ago. Had plenty in hand that day and new mark looks generous. Up in class today but progressive and one of many with viable claims.

Originally cost $450,000 but joined current yard for a fraction of that and opened his account at Newcastle in December. Ran as though something was amiss last time, but current mark does look testing.

Six-time AW winner in his second spell with this yard. Yet to make the frame here, 7lb above his last winning mark and others are more attractively handicapped.

Form has been regressing for a while and his mark has been adjusting accordingly. By a good AW sire and makes his debut on this surface, but that is the only cause for optimism.

Betting

Forecast

Merchant Of Venice (3/1), Bacacarat (5/1), Astonished (8/1), Nahham (9/1), Divine Messenger (10/1), Manton Grange (11/1), Merweb (11/1), Directory (11/1), One Cool Daddy (12/1), Rampant Lion (16/1), Samphire Coast (20/1), Madeleine Bond (25/1), Orange Suit (40/1), Inaam (66/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for most in this but one thing that seems certain is that Divine Messenger will set a strong gallop. He had Directory and MERCHANT OF VENICE behind him here last month but the selection lay further off the pace than usual and Oisin Murphy is a noteworthy booking. The dual C&D winner was drawn on the wrong side at Ascot last time but now has an opportunity to build on earlier promise. Bacacarat was supported to make a winning AW debut but got stuck on the wrong side of the Chelmsford home straight and can be expected to do better here. Madeleine Bond should be thereabouts, but Nahham will be more severely tested this time given the opposition and the pace angle.
