7/2

Winner on the AW at Chelmsford in April and May and has run well in some strong races since. Down in grade but last turf win came at this track way back in 2015.

10/11

Returned to form on third start for this stable and first since wind surgery when third in this grade at York. Without a win since 2017 but on a fair mark and should be involved if building on that. Rain would be a further plus.

7/1

Goes particularly well at this track with three of his four career wins coming here. 3lb higher than May's win and while he's still open to improvement, he needs to lift from two poor runs since.

7/2

Runner-up in 2016 Stewards' Cup off 103 having had a blisteringly successful campaign. No joy since though and has plummeted down weights. Needs to bounce back from two poor efforts.

Betting

Forecast

Holmeswood (10/11), Venturous (5/2), Orion's Bow (7/2), Poyle Vinnie (7/2), Zig Zag Zyggy (7/1), Lovin (7/1)

Verdict

The rain that is due would be a big bonus for Holmeswood who was back to form for his new yard after a wind operation. Narrow preference is for the bang in form VENTUROUS who is capable of defying this mark following an excellent effort in a higher grade last time. It's been a long time since Poyle Vinnie tasted turf success but he too has been going well in better races.
