Goes well fresh and better than ever when winning at Haydock in April. Not in the same form since, albeit in very competitive races, and capable of getting back on track in a race lacking depth.

Progressive last year, winning 2-3 starts, and also scored in Meydan early in 2019. Continued good run of form when close second of 10 to Indeed at Chelmsford last time, and not ruled out with a visor refitted for all soft ground is an unknown.

Successful three times last year, including twice on the AW at Kempton. Needed the run on return at Newcastle (1½m) and shaped well over a trip which stretches him at York last time. Return to this trip will suit, and he has every chance.

Won only once for Saeed Bin Suroor although twice finished fourth in Group company. Returned from a long absence to finish fifth of 6 to Red Verdon over C&D in March, but another break since then raises questions.

Won four on the spin over a 9-month spell last year. No match for classy Elarqam first time out, and below form when 13L sixteenth of 21 to Pivoine in John Smith's Cup at York last time. May be in handicapper's grip.

Impressive winner of a 1¼m novice at Nottingham a year ago, and improved when second at Kempton on handicap bow, although that form hasn't worked out. Ran poorly on his return in June, and usual hood is now refitted, but he has a bit to prove.

Won at York in October, and better effort this year when fifth of 11 to Hulcote at Haydock last time. Not getting any younger, and needs to step up again if he's to get involved in the finish.

Took advantage of a sliding mark when scoring at Ripon last time by a neck from My Reward, but was seen to maximum advantage for that narrow win, and even a small rise makes him look vulnerable.

In good heart when last seen in September 2016 for Ismail Mohammed, but sold very cheaply the following year, and handicapper has cut him no slack despite his lengthy absence. Hard to fancy on balance.

Once a very useful stayer until getting injured after final 2017 start, and doesn't retain much of his old ability if this season's form is any guide.

Gained a quick-fire double at Ayr and Musselburgh earlier this summer, but failed to beat a rival at Ripon on his latest start, and while he had excuses there, he still looks vulnerable from his current mark.

Won over 1¾m at Newmarket in May 2018 for Roger Varian, and now 8lb lower, but has shown virtually nothing since, and this trip is evidently too sharp for him.

Betting

Forecast

Desert Fire (2/1), Buzz (3/1), Autumn War (4/1), Mordin (5/1), Everything For You (7/1), Spanish Archer (10/1), Francis Xavier (10/1), Awake My Soul (20/1), Mulligatawny (25/1), Tamleek (33/1), Muraabit (33/1), Cohesion (50/1), Shabeeb (50/1)

Verdict

BUZZ ran well until his stamina ebbed away in a strong contest at York last time behind Gold Award, and the drop back to this trip looks just what is required, so he's taken to get back to winning ways. Desert Fire needs to prove himself on the ground, but is solid and looks the main danger, with Mordin also expected to stage something of a revival with his sights lowered.
