C&D winner when claiming this contest in 2017. Very consistent and ran well when third at Epsom (1m; good) in a very competitive handicap on Oaks Day. Carries joint-top weight in this contest and bold show expected at a track he goes well at.

Another 1lb higher than for finishing a short-head second at Epsom (7f; good) in this grade on Oaks Day. Now 13lb above latest winning mark but she can't be ruled out when in such a rich vein of form. Question mark about slower ground.

Produced a very promising effort on stable debut for this yard when runner-up at Nottingham (1m; good). Travelled beautifully then and arguably would have won that with a clear run. Should progress a great deal from that effort.

Been given a short break since running okay when sixth at Lingfield on AW Championships day. Not disgraced then, but a similar run expected again as she remains 10lb above last winning mark which was achieved over 1m at Newmarket on good ground.

Tough as teak and seems to run every week (ran 10 times already this season). Always the possibility that running so often can catch up with a horse, but not usually the case when they come from this yard. Thereabouts dropped 2lb for latest effort.

Unexposed and is entitled to improve plenty from first run of the season when third at Newmarket (1m; good to firm) to a good handicapper in Beringer. 58-day break may have done him good and he has a huge chance off an unchanged mark.

Only beat one rival in a 17-runner affair at York on sole attempt at 1m. Hasn't shown anything in all of his four starts this year to suggest that he can win a race as fiercely competitive as this is. Likely to come up short again.

Exceptionally hard to have any real faith in this one after he made a very low-key stable debut for this yard over C&D. Up in grade now and is best watched until offering something to build on.

Least unexposed in this contest after just the six starts. Bettered seasonal reappearance when runner-up in a typically competitive handicap at Newbury (1m; good). Should improve again from that and so much more to come off just 1lb higher mark.

Yard are flying at present and by far the best of his three runs this season was achieved over C&D when third in the Whitsun Cup. Should find his best form returned to this venue but is off a stiff enough mark.

Hasn't improved since arriving on these shores. Has winning form from his time in France on soft ground. Out of form on both starts this season though and now drops down to 1m for the first time for this yard. Questions to answer after short break.

Usually very consistent and therefore his most recent effort when down the field at Haydock (1m; good to firm) should be forgiven. Had previously run admirably in a couple of decent three-year-old handicaps including the Esher Cup over C&D

Betting

Forecast

Greenside (4/1), Sawwaah (9/2), History Writer (5/1), Thrave (13/2), Loch Ness Monster (7/1), Baltic Baron (10/1), Hateya (10/1), Alternative Fact (12/1), Masham Star (14/1), Zap (25/1), Pattie (33/1), Azzeccagarbugli (80/1)

Verdict

It is to be expected that Greenside will be a popular choice amongst punters given his consistent profile in competitive handicaps such as this one. He should go very well indeed, but the unknown quantity in this field is of much greater interest in the shape of BALTIC BARON. The selection almost got off to the perfect start on his first start for David O'Meara when staying on late to finish a close second after being hampered at a crucial stage that day. Given the success the yard have had with similar types he should have no problem righting the wrongs of his UK debut. Loch Ness Monster is another name to note after his respectable third in the Esher Cup over C&D.
