39-7OR: 64BFD
4/1

Scored back-to-back wins in selling grade earlier in the year but confirmed himself better than that with placed efforts in open handicaps since then over 5f. Not seen to best effect last time, still looks in good heart, one for the shortlist.

11/2

Lightly-raced sort picked up by this yard from Brian Meehan for 7,000 guineas; dropped in trip for them on debut to 5f recording an interesting effort. Would be worthy of consideration if he can repeat that effort off the same mark.

Boudica Bay10(ex 5)
49-6OR: 55CD
5/2

Dual C&D winner who hasn't fared that well in the draw lottery having produced a career-best when recording the second of those C&D victories last time. Needs everything to drop right again but not dismissed under a 5lb penalty.

109-5OR: 59CD
14/1

Successful over this C&D on four occasions she can be a rather in-and-out character; well-handicapped when scoring over 5f earlier in the year off a 5lb lower mark. Failed to get a race run to suit last time; not one to make excuses for though.

18/1

C&D winner on his first run of the year (failed to win as a 2yo) but has struggled off higher marks since then (well below form last time). Blinkers tried first-time last time remain, back on his last winning mark; others appeal more.

39-3OR: 60
10/1

Yet to win a race having so far looked a better proposition on the AW keeping on well to finish fourth at Wolverhampton last time over 6f. Well beaten (finished last) on her most recent turf effort, others mount more persuasive claims.

49-0OR: 54CD
11/4

One of four C&D winners in this having taken a handicap off a 6lb higher mark last year but hasn't so far been able to build on that victory. Seemingly back on some sort of track last time; has the best of the draw if staging a full revival.

38-11OR: 54
25/1

Most of his form is essentially modest with only one standout effort to his name on the AW. Form has a rather in-and-out look to it with the emphasis being more on out than in; fairly easy to oppose despite a decent draw.

88-5OR: 45D
33/1

On a long losing run with his last win coming back in 2017 and a bank of inconsistent form behind him. Ran a fair race over C&D last time but hard to see him breaking his losing spell in this with some decent C&D types in opposition.

Betting

Forecast

Boudica Bay (5/2), Jeffrey Harris (11/4), Hard Solution (4/1), Kaafy (11/2), Tease Maid (10/1), Economic Crisis (14/1), Shall We Begin (16/1), Northern Society (18/1), Bluella (20/1), The Grey Zebedee (25/1), Camanche Grey (33/1)

Verdict

The last three-year-old to win this came back in 2014 but to be fair only eight have tried since then and they are well represented this time. HARD SOLUTION may well be the pick of the bunch this time having shown himself capable outside of selling class in his last two races. Kaafy is another from that age group who enters the equation having run well last time at Ayr while Shall We Begin is still worth watching in the market despite a less than advantageous draw. Of the older contingent dual C&D winner Boudica Bay has to be considered despite the widest draw of all with the well-drawn Jeffrey Harris having possibilities of making the frame.
