In good form this season and ran well in the Royal Hunt Cup last time out considering he was drawn on wrong side. Yet to win in eight starts at Newmarket but has run okay in defeat on a number of occasions; each-way player back at his favoured trip.

Listed winner at Epsom last year but handicapper appears to have caught up with him judged on recent starts. Well beaten in two previous runs at this venue.

Enjoyed a productive 2018 season with back-to-back wins in very valuable handicaps including this race. Not at his best in two starts this year but handicap mark is falling as a result and not without an each-way squeak.

Won three times on AW this winter. Only has a maiden success on turf and handicap mark doesn't reflect that he's better on artificial surface; others preferred.

Impressive when winning at Musselburgh earlier in the campaign but has largely struggled from his revised handicap mark in five runs since. Yard have stronger claims with their other runners.

Has a fair strike-rate of five wins from 14 starts and she wasn't beaten far in a fillies' Listed race at Chelmsford last time out. Has her toughest test yet here but she's less exposed than some and fast ground will suit.

Won five times last year but the handicapper caught up with him by the end of the campaign and running below his best in two runs this year. Booking of Dettori is a positive and both trip and ground are fine, each-way chance.

Only one win in her nine starts and that came in a Class 5 handicap at Bath for previous yard. Running well in defeat in two Listed races this year and the ground is in her favour so not without a chance with a less exposed profile than many.

Very consistent sort who won twice at the start of last season. May not have won since but often gives the impression he has a big race in him from this sort of handicap mark and he's run well in defeat here before.

All three wins have come on AW and hasn't looked the same horse on turf to date. Could go well if he can come on for his reappearance win at Chelmsford last time on debut for this yard but has a 6lb penalty to cope with.

Bolted up on handicap debut at Newbury last year but badly out of form in three starts this year at Meydan, needs plenty more to defy this handicap mark.

Won four times for Iain Jardine in 2018 and shaped like a return to form may be near at Epsom last time on just third run for new connections. Probably at his very best with cut in the ground but handles fast conditions; above highest winning mark.

Winner on yard debut at Thirsk back at 7f. Career best when runner-up at York two starts back in a competitive handicap but slightly disappointing in a lesser race at Leicester when favourite last time. Yard in form and hard to put a line through.

Won twice on AW this winter since switched to this yard but has been a long way below his best back on turf; hard to fancy on that evidence in a race this competitive.

Course winner here at 1m last year. Has been in and out of form so far this campaign but back on his last winning mark and sure to get the decent pace he needs to aim at.

Won three times last year but below form so far this campaign and above his last winning handicap mark. Career best came on heavy ground and he will have to find plenty of improvement for the fitting of first-time cheekpieces.

C&D winner last season and won a competitive heat at Leopardstown towards the end of the campaign. Optimum ground/trip here and he's becoming very well-handicapped on his best form. Wears first-time visor.

Betting

Forecast

Solar Gold (4/1), Kynren (6/1), Vale Of Kent (13/2), Spanish City (7/1), Ripp Orf (8/1), Crossing The Line (8/1), Ambassadorial (11/1), Admirality (12/1), Lake Volta (14/1), Zap (14/1), Burnt Sugar (14/1), So Beloved (16/1), Keyser Soze (16/1), Aces (20/1), Alemaratalyoum (25/1), Shady Mccoy (25/1), Good Effort (33/1), Hajjam (33/1), Three Saints Bay (33/1), Sanaadh (50/1)

Verdict

While this is clearly a typically competitive heat, KYNREN is the stand-out pick. He was only narrowly denied in two competitive handicaps earlier in the season and he looked a little hard done by when doing best from those drawn low in the mightily competitive Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot last time. There's a host of each-way chances in this and Zap is an interesting one in first-time headgear while the likes of Spanish City and Solar Gold can run well again.
