10/3

A seven time winner but losing run currently stands at 17. Has worked his way back down to a nice handicap mark though and he ran with credit when fourth here earlier in the week. Down the order on jockey bookings.

Hasn't won on turf since a novice success at Ayr. Failed to build on a promising reappearance run at Ripon when failing to beat a rival home at Chelmsford last time out; others preferred.

A Flat winner in France but well beaten on the Flat on debut for this yard at York and took a heavy fall at Southwell last time out over hurdles; readily opposed.

Off the mark in a maiden on the third attempt at Salisbury but that form has been done no favours since. Opposable from a tough mark on handicap debut, though does have a talented 3lb claimer on board.

Not the most consistent sort but back in the winners' enclosure at Epsom last time out when making all in good fashion. No guarantee he will back that up from his revised handicap mark though.

Sole win since 2017 came at Windsor last year but has been hinting at a return to form in three recent turf starts. 2lb below his last winning handicap mark and has each-way claims.

Needs a very strong pace to aim at and got his head back in front at Bath last time out. Not the most reliable though and vulnerable from the new handicap mark.

Course winner who hasn't won since 2016 but wasn't disgraced last time out at Brighton when runner-up in a four runner contest. Must build on that in first-time cheekpieces here.

Wants some cut in the ground to be seen at his best, as seen when a soft ground winner at Newmarket last year. Running okay in defeat lately but has plenty on his plate in a race this competitive.

Has won twice on AW but yet to record at turf win and failed to beat a rival home at Chester last time out. A return to fast ground will suit and not without each-way hope.

Course winner who bounced back to form on AW in the spring with a couple of wins. 3lb rise for the latest looks fair and interesting if he's ready to go on return here.

Didn't need to improve to win a four-runner Bath handicap last month but he was a well beaten favourite in a tougher race at Leicester last time. Vulernable here, despite the yard's excellent record at this meeting.

Two wins from nine starts but hasn't been able to replicate his AW form on turf to date. Up 7lb for his Kempton win last time out and others preferred.

Hasn't won on turf since a soft ground success at Windsor in 2016. Well suited by a strong pace at Windsor last time when picking off several rivals late on but perhaps vulnerable up in trip here.

Hasn't won since a maiden success here over 6f on debut. Well beaten in his last couple of AW starts, failing to settle last time at Lingfield and plenty to prove at present.

Arrives bidding for a hat-trick having scored under a penalty at Newbury last time out. Needs a career best but in the form of his life and has a useful apprentice in the saddle who can claim 3lb.

Still a maiden after five starts and showed no improvement on handicap debut last time at Doncaster. Needs to settle better to have a say; yard won this last year.

Verdict

FORTUNE AND GLORY arrives in the form of his life for this race having won with a bit in hand last time at Newbury and with the useful apprentice Darragh Keenan claiming 3lbs, the pair are of most interest in the finale to the Goodwood Festival. Ventura Knight has been running well in defeat while In The Red can't be ruled out if ready to roll on return.
