Won a cliamer on the AW at Lingfield last month and is relatively still unexposed back on turf; the drop in trip combined with top weight might be his undoing though.

Useful over sprint distances and has run into form at the right time for a crack at a race like this. Very well handicapped on old form, so must enter calculations.

Gets on well with Kate Leahy, whose 5lb claim has already proved to be a healthy bonus and instrumental in two wins on turf since April. Was a disappointing favourite in a similar race at Newmarket last time though.

Losing sequence has mounted up since a win at Yarmouth last summer but the gelding is on an attractive mark as a result. Latest start was a hint at a revival (Major Valentine held that time). The betting can guide.

C&D winner from a 13lb higher mark four years ago but there's been plenty of frustration since then. Not least when second over 7f at Kempton last time out. Place claims if able to dig deeper.

Handles give under foot but has held his form well on the AW since returning from a short break in April; ran above expectations when second at Nottingham on his penultimate start but not so effective back on Fibresand latest. Risk attached.

Won a novice stakes over C&D during his time with Richard Hannon but no success when representing a different yard since. Also didn't show much on debut for his current trainer and plenty to prove at present.

Won three times on the bounce at Kempton in the spring but three starts since returned nothing of note. 0-6 on turf and another with a bit to find after a modest display at Windsor last month.

Betting

Forecast

Global Melody (7/2), Motajaasid (4/1), Human Nature (9/2), Little Palaver (6/1), Handytalk (13/2), Major Valentine (9/1), Elusif (12/1), Doc Sportello (12/1), Princely (14/1), Ainne (25/1)

Verdict

HUMAN NATURE is worth a sporting punt in a weak finale where the ability to handle the ground is likely to be a major factor. Major Valentine has a bit to find with the selection after their encounter at Newmarket last month, so the well handicapped Handytalk could pose more of a threat this time around. Rain getting into the ground would boost the claims of Global Melody and he too gets a nomination as one to consider for a place in the frame at least.
