10/1

Dual winner including over 1m2f at Chepstow (good-to-soft) in June. Not disgraced in France and then excuses over 1m6f (didn't stay) last time. Better expected in these conditions.

Back on last winning mark and better effort following two poor runs last start. Suited by the conditions although would need to improve on previous three visits to this course.

Twice a winner on the AW off lower marks and her best form has been on quicker ground on turf. Well held on reappearance here although the extra trip is at least one plus.

25/1

Infrequent winner who is 4lb higher than last win and with all successes coming over 1m4f in lesser company. Ran poorly in a seller last time and best to look elsewhere.

On an inconsistent run of form of late and remains a touch high in the handicap. Capable at his best and gelded since his last run but his last effort on turf was poor.

Runner-up off this mark in last year's renewal when in the care of Mark Gillard. Won in a first time visor (retained) over shorter here last time and looks primed to go well again. Leading contender.

Sole British win came over 1m4f at Brighton in 2017. Narrowly denied from off the pace over this trip at Newbury last time when unsuited by a slow tempo. Could go well off just 2lb higher.

Has built on gutsy Lingfield AW win over this distance with three seconds of late. However beaten 11L two starts back when unsuited by soft ground. Wouldn't want rain otherwise likely to be involved.

Has fallen in the handicap but he's only managed two wins from 35 starts so far and disappointed in a lower grade the last twice. Others look much stronger candidates.

Betting

Forecast

The Lords Walk (2/1), Amaretto (3/1), Light Of Air (4/1), Gendarme (10/1), Subliminal (10/1), Maroc (12/1), Bayston Hill (14/1), Rainbow Jazz (14/1), Settle Petal (25/1), Dream Magic (25/1)

Verdict

THE LORDS WALK went very close off the same mark in this race last year and clearly likes this track following his last start win for his new stable. Light Of Air did well to get close off a slow tempo last time and with a stronger test of stamina expected, rates a danger. Amaretto is in good heart and should be thereabouts.
