Returned to form in a decisive manner to record her second course victory over 6f in a race that she won the previous year off a 4lb higher mark. Kept on well (has won over 7f) and expected to hold her form well as she did in 2018.

Gave a good account of himself in a race that didn't quite fall his way at Newmarket last time (not well placed for much of the contest). Showed some good form the time before over 7f at Southwell; improving sort, leading chance.

Lightly-raced for one of her age she was well suited by the strong gallop when last seen recording a career-best to win at Salisbury over 7f. Raised 10lb for that win she has a significant absence to overcome; may not find circumstances so suitable.

Course winner who took a few outings to come to hand last year; looks to be the same case this year with both runs so far this year looking below-par. Often races freely and dropped in trip (2-10 at 7f); of limited interest at the moment.

Returned a mark just 1lb above his last winning one when scoring here over 1m in May with 0-70 class looking to be his level now. Not disgraced last time at York but found that competitive contest too much; could be the same story here.

Heavy ground 1m winner at Haydock on his seasonal return after a wind op; bounced back to take advantage of a much-reduced mark. Flopped last time off an 8lb higher mark on much quicker ground; would need rain to feature.

The only C&D winner in the field his return to form came totally out of the blue over 6f at Salisbury (strong pace suited him). Confirmed that form without winning over the same C&D last time; should appreciate the return to 7f.

68-7OR: 64CD
14/1

Course winner who has always struggled in this grade (0-16); well held last time over 6f in a Windsor apprentice event despite a drop in the weights. Reported to have bled last time and makes little appeal despite being off a reduced mark.

Forecast

Rock of Estonia (5/2), Sir Roderic (7/2), Bungee Jump (11/2), Bristol Missile (6/1), The Establishment (13/2), Eula Varner (8/1), Kenstone (8/1), Air Of York (12/1), Another Boy (14/1), Kodiline (16/1)

Verdict

One of the trickier puzzles on the card for backers to solve with six course winners clashing but it’s one who hasn’t won here in ROCK OF ESTONIA that takes the eye the most have won with authority on his penultimate start before building on that with a good second at Newmarket. Of those that have been successful here Bungee Jump defends an unbeaten record having won here last time out with Air Of York looking to have refound his form this return to 7f looking to be a bonus. Eula Verner is perhaps the most interesting runner in the field with scope for improvement if she doesn’t need this run after a significant absence.
