11/2

Stayed on gamely to win on handicap debut at Newmarket (1m2f) last time out having run some respectable races in Listed company. 5lb rise in what could be a slightly deeper race will demand more improvement but not ruled out.

Showed some promise as a juvenile and won a 15-runner Naas maiden on return. Found Group 2 company too tough in Germany but took a step back in the right direction last time out; likely pace angle in here up in trip.

Only narrowly denied on debut for this yard before justifying favouritism in good style in a Windsor maiden. Only narrowly denied at Newbury prior to a forgivable run at Royal Ascot where he raced isolated for first half of the contest. Dropped 1lb.

Fairly prolific as a juvenile with his best effort a Listed win at Ascot. Got himself back in the winners' enclosure at Hamilton at the start of July but has struggled from his revised mark subsequently.

Well beaten in his hat-trick bid at Royal Ascot last time out but had excuses (met some trouble in running). Dropped 1lb and ran well over C&D as a juvenile; may be capable of resuming progress.

Won a Sandown maiden (7f) last year and while last in the Dante, he stepped up on that when beaten 3L fifth of 16 at Royal Ascot. However, didn't give the impression a drop back in trip was needed back at that course last time when fourth of seven.

Won an AW race over the winter and landed back-to-back handicaps at Musselburgh subsequently. Struggled from his revised mark at Hamilton last time but that was his first run in two months and may strip fitter here. Dropped 2lb in the handicap.

Two wins from five starts so far this year, bolting up at Windsor in June before going close at Newmarket last time in a race won by Walkinthesand. Has claims of reversing the form now 2lb better off at the weights but may not want any more rain.

Showed promise at 7f and has improved for the step up in trip, winning two of his four races this term. Can be slowly away but freshened up since his last run when fourth of 15 at Newbury (Sinjaari second) and likely has more improvement in him.

Won two novice races as a juvenile but inconsistent so far this season and well beaten in behind Korcho and Walkinthesand last time out, perhaps doing too much too soon. This track more likely to play to his strengths and may bounce back.

Won a decent Nottingham maiden as a juvenile and got his head back in front at Chelmsford last time (1m) with a game effort. Has given the impression he may have more to give at this trip at some point and 5lb rise for his latest win looks fair.

Betting

Forecast

Forest Of Dean (4/1), Sinjaari (4/1), Fox Premier (11/2), Walkinthesand (11/2), Almania (15/2), Korcho (10/1), Dalaalaat (10/1), The Trader (12/1), Victory Command (25/1), Wargrave (25/1), Coolagh Forest (50/1)

Verdict

A tricky opener to day three of the meeting. Mark Johnston has an excellent record in this contest and from his pair, The Trader rates as the type to bounce back after a disappointment at Newmarket last time behind Korcho and Walkinthesand who are both expected to go well again. However, we may not have seen the best of FOREST OF DEAN just yet and he brings some solid form to the table. Dalaalaat is another to consider from a low weight.
