59-12OR: 80

Boasts a fine strike-rate in winning six of 18 and posted a clear career best when upped in trip to 1m3.5f on soft ground at Windsor recently. 5lb penalty to defy but this extra half furlong will only help for a stable in red hot form.

49-6OR: 79

Twice a winner on soft on the Flat and returns from a good run of form over hurdles. Makes his stable debut 1lb lower than his last win and may have more to offer up to this trip. Could be competitive.

49-6OR: 79

Twice a winner for Bryan Smart in novice company before being very highly tried. Yet to fire in three starts this year for current stable and step up in trip on unsuitable ground means he's one to oppose.

59-5OR: 78

Ex-Godolphin inmate returned from an 18 month absence for his new stable when always behind at Hamilton, finishing tailed off. Up in distance and hard to fancy after that run.

49-4OR: 77

Twice an AW winner at Newcastle and Southwell but yet to reach the money in five starts on turf. Yet to convince in this sphere and despite falling mark, is probably best waiting for a return to the AW.

79-3OR: 76CD

Twice a winner over hurdles earlier in the year and bounced back to form on the Flat when winning over this C&D at the beginning of the month. Up 4lb and handles any ground, however all winning form has come in a lower grade.

49-2OR: 75D

Off the mark on his sixth start over this distance at Newbury on good ground after showing some steady progress. This is a much tougher contest off 4lb higher and while he's open to improvement, the ground is an unknown quantity.

59-1OR: 74D

Handles soft ground well, has plenty of stamina and already a winner three times this year. Followed her Musselburgh win with a disappointing run at York and this current mark will demand more.

48-9OR: 68CD

Winner in a much lower grade over this C&D in April before a poor run behind Follow Intello at Newbury. This is tougher still and didn't look at home with some cut in the ground previously. Others look stronger candidates at this level.

48-6OR: 65D

Entitled to strip fitter for his season reappearance and just 2lb higher than his sole winning mark on quick ground at Doncaster last year. Proved totally unsuited by heavy ground twice previously and swerved on that basis.

Betting

Forecast

Follow Intello (10/3), Dragons Voice (7/2), Rashdan (6/1), Buckland Boy (7/1), Statuario (15/2), Ingleby Hollow (9/1), Contrebasse (11/1), Royal Cosmic (11/1), Alfa McGuire (16/1), Ennjaaz (66/1)

Verdict

DRAGONS VOICE will have more improvement to come at this trip following a dominant win over a half furlong shorter and he could be hard to beat for a stable who can do little wrong at present. Statuario is also interesting moving up to this distance for his new stable and returns from some decent hurdling form. Ingleby Hollow has yet to win at a grade this high but the conditions don't pose an issue following a good C&D win.
