Better on AW than turf, although ran respectably when fourth at Bath in May. Failed to match that at Newbury last time, but shaped as if short of fitness there, and should do better down in grade.

Has failed to progress form an encouraging debut second at Kempton, although has been very lightly raced since. Ran poorly on handicap debut at Newbury, but this is a significantly weaker race, so unwise to give up on him yet.

Very well handicapped on the pick of his form, and now 5lb lower than for latest win. Has won over C&D in the past, and possible he can put some poor efforts behind him with conditions ideal.

On a lengthy losing run, but this C&D winner is running consistently well, and is sure to make a bold bid from the front, as is his wont.

Front-runner who was regularly in the money on AW last winter, and probably needed the run on his return from a break at Nottingham last time. Blinkers replace a visor, and he's one to consider with the benefit of that outing.

Uninspiring of late and hasn't won a race since springing a 33-1 surprise at Doncaster (6f good) in 2016. Ran poorly after a break at Southwell last time, and clearly still has problems.

Brighton regular who was successful over 7f there early this month. May have found run coming too soon last time, so not ruled out, but form is beginning to look very patchy. Cheekpieces refitted here.

Showed speed to lead for a fair way at Nottingham on penultimate start, but ultimately well beaten, and she was never out of the rear when running poorly at Chelmsford last time.

Showed a little on AW earlier in the season, but regressive efforts since returning from a break in May, and makes little appeal with blinkers now reached for.

Betting

Forecast

Evening Attire (11/8), First Excel (6/1), Chez Vegas (7/1), Case Key (7/1), Kath's Lustre (8/1), Lilbourne Star (17/2), Princess Florence (14/1), Vimy Ridge (16/1), Thedevilinneville (40/1), Tilsworth Prisca (66/1)

Verdict

EVENING ATTIRE looks the safest choice despite a long losing run, and he's been doing nothing wrong on recent starts. He's readily preferred to fellow pace-forcer First Excel, who may improve for his first run back from a break recently, while Case Key and Kath's Lustre are likely to make more impact than of late now dropping in class.
