Was a good second at Pontefract in April but has failed to build on that effort in three starts since. Slow start cost him when last in 1m Brighton handicap but is back on a dangerous mark. Claims judged on his Pontefract run.

Not hard ridden when distant 11th of 20 at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) in an effort to gain handicap mark. Will shape fitter for this contest and has the scope for progression. Interesting contender in this calibre.

Showed some signs of progression when 3l fifth in 1m3f Lingfield handicap in May. Forecasted ground and trip is likely to suit and this could be a good opportunity to break his maiden tag.

2-4 this season and looked to improved by wind surgery before flopping at Brighton (7f, good to firm) on latest start. Unsuited by the track that day and drastically steps up in trip for this. Notable if market support.

12-race maiden but has ran with credit for this yard and wasn't disgraced when seventh in 1m2f Lingfield handicap when last seen. But more needed again to be competitive on turf debut.

Bounced back to form when landing 1m Bath handicap on stable debut in late June. Looked to be crying out for a step up in trip that day and 3lb handicap rise seems fair. The one to beat on form.

Raced with credit on handicap debut when 5l sixth in 1m Newbury handicap last time out. Interestingly dropped 3lb for that effort and step up in trip should be fine. Could be one step ahead of the handicapper and can't be ignored.

Betting

Forecast

Magic Shuffle (7/2), Arctic Sea (4/1), Peggy Mckay (4/1), Cool Possibility (4/1), Grange Walk (5/1), Run After Genesis (8/1), Island Jungle (12/1), Natch (14/1)

Verdict

A majority of the field remain either unexposed or open to progression, and MAGIC SHUFFLE can continue his upward curve in this contest. Being out of a derby winner, this trip is likely to bring out the best of him and is the one to beat on form. Grange Walk is finally getting the hang of things on the track and his solid C&D effort earlier this season sets him in good stead, and it Cool Possibility has the pedigree to improve with racing and could be underestimated by the handicapper.
