Ran really well at Windsor (6f, good to firm) last time when finishing second of seven in what was first run for new yard. He has gone up 5lb for that near miss. Conditions could be a concern. One to consider though.

Justified going off as the hot even money favourite at Windsor (5f) last time. Done very little wrong in his racecourse starts so far and is definitely open to further improvement. Leading contender.

Won on the AW at Newcastle (6f) earlier this season but his two turf runs since then have not been great. He may now be off a competitive mark and conditions should suit. One to watch.

7/1

A C&D winner back in April where he justified going off as the joint-favourite for the race. Was fourth of seven last time at Nottingham (6f, good to firm) but did stumble at the start. Each-way claims.

A maiden after six races but has hit the frame in all three of his starts this season, including when second of seven at Chepstow (7f). Distance should suit, cheekpieces on for first time. Good chance.

Has won twice on the AW but is 0-4 on turf. Did run well last time at Yarmouth over 7f when second of seven. Dropping down in trip and untested on this ground so one to watch.

Hasn't looked threatening in his three racecourse starts so far, including latest when sixth of 10 on the AW at Chelmsford (6f). Makes handicap debut so keep an eye on any market confidence behind him.

A winner over this trip on the AW at Southwell earlier this year. His form on turf hasn't been as good this season, including latest when only two horses were behind him in a 12 runner field at Thirsk (6f). Has to improve.

Was a surprise 125/1 winner in a novice race at Nottingham (6f) last month. Made his handicap debut at Leicester (6f) last time where she finished last of 12. Difficult to make a case for here.

Still a maiden after six races and has often been losing his races at the start. Was fifth of 10 last time at Redcar (5f) where he was staying on strongly. Others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Celtic Manor (13/8), Moveonup (6/1), Socru (7/1), Ghost Buy (8/1), Mr Buttons (8/1), Havana Ooh Na Na (10/1), Fair Alibi (14/1), Bugler Bob (14/1), Kolossus (16/1), Lady Monica (20/1), Swinging Eddie (25/1)

Verdict

CELTIC MANOR broke his maiden at Windsor last time over this distance and he can follow it up here as he is a lightly raced gelding who is open to further improvement. Mr Buttons was unfortunate not to score at Bath last time. He has gone up 5lb for that narrow defeat but can be competitive again here, while Moveonup should be suited by this trip and conditions.
  1. Celtic Manor
