Back to form at Beverley on Tuesday, making most and only caught close home. Different type of track to cope with here but very well handicapped now and if this veteran is back to form, he's a big chance here.

No win in 10 starts, went close at Thirsk last July but gone backwards since then, including when tried in a hood. Made no impression in a Brighton seller last time and hard to fancy at present.

At least he took a step in the right direction when third at Bath last time, the addition of cheekpieces seemingly helping his cause a little. Needs to repeat and build on that but with conditions fine, has chances if he can.

Had been knocking on the door before coming good at Wolverhampton last time, holding on well under pressure. However, that was first win since 2017, so no certainty to follow up. Big chance under penalty if he can, though.

Comes here in good form after a win in a Beverley seller and close third in a better race than this at Goodwood, but the worry would be they both came with cut in the ground, which she's unlikely to get today. Chance if handling quicker.

Twice a winner last autumn and on a very good mark if he can refind form for his new yard, who are going okay at present. Conditions fine, and at worst needs a market check, as money for him would need noting strongly.

Not the force of old at the age of 11 and the pipe and slippers might not be far off, judging on a few of his below par efforts this spring/summer. Hard to fancy.

Just the one win in 16 starts but very well handicapped on the best of her form and she did show more when tried in cheekpieces last time, finishing third. They are retained here and if she can build on that, she'll have her chance.

Only beaten a couple of horses home in her last two starts and simply isn't showing enough to make her of interest here.

Did a bit better at Brighton last time but that's not saying a lot, given he still finished fifth of the six runners. Needs a lot more here if he's to challenge for the top honours.

Betting

Forecast

Aquadabra (9/4), Maid From The Mist (7/2), Spot Lite (4/1), Seamster (4/1), Scarlet Red (12/1), Devil Or Angel (14/1), North Korea (14/1), Storm Lightning (20/1), Kiowa (20/1), Swendab (33/1), Willa's Wish (33/1), Willett (50/1)

Verdict

Probably not too many to concentrate on and now SEAMSTER has refound his form, there must be a chance he'll outclass this lot. He went very close over C&D from a 9lb higher mark and although stall 1 might not be ideal, a fast start should see him grab pole position early. Aquadabra will be a threat if repeating her latest win, but that's not a definite given her overall record, and a bigger danger might be Spot Lite, who seems to be taking small steps forward with each start lately. North Korea improved for some headgear last time and could be a danger.
