Got her head back in front in good style at Ayr on her penultimate start but struggled off career high mark last time out at Wetherby. Might well be in the handicapper's grip.

Has been improving of late exemplified by reasonable effort last time out over course and distance. Might need to drop a few pounds more before getting back to winning ways but not totally out of this.

Struggled slightly last time out on the AW but had previously posted good efforts when winning at this tack and Carlisle (two placed eforts subsequently). Enjoys a soft surface but possibly too high in the weights to get competitive.

Hat-trick seeking gelding who made light work of a hefty rise in the weights to score well over course and distance last time out. Needs to progress again but no obvious reason why he can't be involved in the finish.

Reproduced the form he showed on his reasonal reappearance at Doncaster when staying on well to win at Carlisle last time out over 1m3f. Likes a bit of cut in the ground and very much one to consider.

Decent effort from out of the handicap last time out at Ayr albeit in slowly run race. Has run well at this track in the past and has form on soft ground. One to consider.

Fair effort on his seasonal reappearance run at Redcar before disappointing next time out at Doncaster. Better effort on his latest start and has won on soft ground. Chances if running to his best.

Irish raider; has been disappointing since finishing placed at Dundalk in April including when beating none home last time at Limerick. Hard to assess and market should provide most clues.

Betting

Forecast

Five Helmets (3/1), Beechwood Jude (4/1), Carbon Dating (9/2), Maulesden May (6/1), Majeste (7/1), Flint Hill (8/1), Mistiness (12/1), Can Can Sixty Two (12/1)

Verdict

BEECHWOOD JUDE can follow up his recent success at Carlisle despite a rise in the weights given his generally upward profile. He is also happy with some cut in the ground. The hat-trick seeking Five Helmets will be popular in the betting ring and he won both races well. He is another open to improvement and could give the selection most to do. Flint Hill is a past winner on soft ground and has been running better of late than the bare form suggests. He could go well at a decent price.
