7/1

Thirsk specialist who won well on only second try at 1m2f at Ripon last time out; has been given a short break and will come here full of confidence but may be vulnerable of his revised mark.

Has won two of his last three appearances at this track including over this trip last time out. More on his plate at the weights but clearly in good heart and expected to run his race.

Generally a consistent sort over a mile and not disgraced at Ascot last time out over this trip. Bred to stay this far and setttles well in his races. Every chance if putting his best foot forward.

Very consistent gelding over this trip; still looking for his first handicap success; capable, but suspicion is he may have wait for some relief from the handicapper before getting his head in front; respected nevertheless.

Stable won this race last season; Easily won a minor race on his second appearance last October at Windsor before being outclassed in a Group contest in France. Does not look unreasonably handicapped and looks the one to beat.

Had been knocking on the door before scoring well last time out at Ripon earlier this month. Upped in the handicap but still looks progressive and can play a leading role.

Ayr specialist; generally consistent at the course and distance; almost down to last winning mark and expected to run well but may be vulnerable to some less exposed and more progressive rivals.

Has been slowly going backwards after some decent efforts last season; new connections may have been able to freshen him up but recent form does not suggest he can get competitive.

Possibly the most progressive in the field who has reveled in racing over this longer trip; the manner of his last victory at Haydock suggests there is more to come and deeply respected here. Rain will be an added bonus.

Betting

Forecast

Jackamundo (9/4), Shoot For Gold (7/2), Cockalorum (6/1), Borodin (7/1), Ayutthaya (17/2), Nicholas T (11/1), Hortzadar (12/1), Glasses Up (18/1), Rashdan (50/1)

Verdict

All eyes will be on Shoot For Gold on his handicap debut following a facile win at Windsor followed by being upped to a Group event in France. Does not look too badly treated by the handicapper and has an excellent chance. However, the preference (at possibly a better value price) is JACKAMUNDO who has been laid out for this contest after winning in style at Haydock in June. He could prove hard to beat if improving again. Cockalorum is another recent winner who should run his race and it remains to be seen whether he is ahead of the handicapper. Hortzadar and Nicholas T are another two to consider in what looks a fascinating contest.
