9/2

Twice a winner of handicaps at Windsor and Bath this season and ran another fine race when narrow second in 1m Windsor handicap last month. Not discredited when fourth at Ascot since, and merits consideration again.

Bounced back from a poor run to gain second win of the year at Bath (1m) last time, although seen to maximum effect there, and needs a career-best effort if he's going to follow up.

8/1

Best effort to date when runner-up in a 7f maiden at Doncaster in April, but he's not gone on from that in two runs since, and a visor now tried for handicap debut. Looks harshly treated on balance of form,

Did best work late when second to Fox Leicester at Sandown on his return, and totally unsuited to being held up off a false pace when last of four behind Reggae Runner at Bath last time. Could well reverse form granted a more honest gallop here.

Has plenty of mileage in handicaps, but eked out a bit more improvement when winning at Doncaster (1m, soft) last month. Faded after making the rover 1¼m when fourth to Cardano at Newmarket last time, and should appreciate the return to this trip.

Has ability, as he showed when beaten 1¾L at Nottingham in May, but didn't appear to put it all in at Windsor on Monday having held every chance, and blinkers replace cheekpieces now.

Betting

Forecast

Reggae Runner (9/4), Silkstone (7/2), Mr Tyrrell (9/2), Hold Still (5/1), Lyndon B (8/1), God Has Given (17/2)

Verdict

HOLD STILL finished last behind Reggae Runner at Bath, but is much better than that form line would suggest, and he can turn the tables assuming this race isn't run at the same funereal pace. Silkstone should ensure that isn't the case, and he holds place claims dropping back to 1m having weakened late at Newmarket last time.
