20/1

Has put some good time figures together at various points in his career but he's far from consistent and failed to beat a rival home at Chelmsford last time out. Feasibly handicapped but hard to recommend on recent evidence.

Just one win since a novice success in 2017 and well beaten in three previous starts at this venue. Back below his last winning handicap mark but others make more appeal, particularly down at this trip.

Rattled off hat-trick last year and the third win came over this course and distance. Got his head back in front on AW this campaign but looks vulnerable from a handicapping perspective in a race of this nature.

His form tailed off towards the end of last year and he's been merely ticking over in three starts this campaign. Wants fast ground to be seen at his best and while he's back on his last winning mark, others arrive in better form.

Gained a second turf win over 6f at Epsom last time out. Revised mark demands more and drop in trip probably isn't ideal; others preferred.

Ended a long losing run at Thirsk in May and went back to back with a York success next time. Handicapper would now appear to have his measure again but he's a previous C&D winner who can't be ruled out.

Has been unlucky not to have won a race this year, conceding first run to the winner in a Listed race at York last time out the latest hard luck story. Optimum conditions here and can go well with Murphy taking over.

Kept busy and has won four times since the end of last year but handicapper would appear to have his measure for now, though his talented rider's 5lb claim will help at least.

Has only one win since 2017 and while he's back below his last winning mark, a success at Ayr last season, his run at Ascot last time didn't suggest a return to the winners' enclosure was near.

C&D winner last year prior to a Nottingham success at the end of the campaign. Unlucky back at that venue on return and gained compensation at Salisbury last time out, winning very comfortably. 8lb higher but may yet have more to give.

More effective on AW than turf and well beaten in a four-runner handicap at Hamilton last time when failing to make all. This looks plenty tougher and only dropped 1lb for that effort.

C&D winner (this race 2016) but only has one success since 2016 and that came on AW at Wolverhampton. Well beaten on all starts subsequently and struggling for any form whatsoever, despite a falling handicap mark. Wears first-time blinkers.

Hasn't won since 2016 but has produced some fair efforts in defeat in less company this year. Being 3lb out of the handicap won't help his cause though.

Betting

Forecast

Maygold (7/2), Saaheq (6/1), Dark Shot (13/2), Koditime (7/1), Lord Riddiford (8/1), Muthmir (8/1), Line Of Reason (9/1), Duke Of Firenze (12/1), Count Otto (14/1), Green Power (16/1), Boom The Groom (16/1), Harry Hurricane (16/1), A Momentofmadness (20/1), Poyle Vinnie (33/1)

Verdict

DARK SHOT edges the vote after another promising effort at York last time out and while his strike-rate of two wins from 37 starts is poor, a return to the winners' enclosure looks near. Maygold is less exposed than some and may be able to build on her recent Salisbury win. Muthmir is dangerously well-handicapped if he can get back to anything like his best.
