2/1

Useful form in handicaps, but he's never actually won one, and tends to get poorly positioned given his tendency to start slowly. Never nearer last of 5 in similar event here last time, although more likely to get strong pace which suits here.

Won over 7f at Musselburgh and 1m at Haydock in May, and improved again when a close second to Nicholas T at Ayr last time. May yet do better, with yard firing on all cylinders, and tops the shortlist on recent evidence.

Course regular who won twice here last year for Chris Dwyer. Not disgraced on return/debut for new yard in May, but ran poorly last time, and looks vulnerable even if back to form here.

Won three times of significantly higher marks for Henry Candy in 2016/17, but hasn't been able to score for current yard despite a tumbling mark, and latest effort at Nottingham was poor. Blinkers back on now.

Betting

Forecast

Smile A Mile (8/15), Ultimate Avenue (2/1), Michele Strogoff (3/1), Bint Dandy (12/1), Noble Peace (12/1)

Verdict

Michele Strogoff should ensure that this is run at a sound pace, and he is better than he showed at Windsor on Monday. He's expected to bounce back given his reliable profile, but may find himself merely setting things up for the progressive SMILE A MILE, whose latest run represented a career best. Ultimate Avenue is hard to win with, but if they go hard in front as expected, he will come into the equation.
