Useful filly for Gavin Cromwell in Ireland, finishing a narrow second in 1m4f Galway handicap when last seen on the flat. Has been running well over jumps since switching to this yard and is of interest off a workable handicap mark.

Useful form in bumpers and has made a perfectly reasonable start to life on the flat, finishing second on all three starts including latest at Hamilton (1m). Back up to 1m4f for this but opening mark looks high.

Front-runner who had shown little for new yard until winning tenaciously at Chester (1m2f, good) on latest start. 3lb rise seems fair and could be dangerous if getting a soft lead on this sharp track.

On a lenient mark and has been running well recently, putting up his best performance with 2L fourth in 1m2f Ayr handicap last time out. 2lb better off for this and leading player if race is a true test.

Inconsistent sort. Ready winner of 1m4f Beverley handicap on penultimate start but was firmly put in his place by classy-looking winner at Ascot (1m6f, good to firm) last time. Drop back in trip is a positive and this looks an easier contest.

Formerly a smart handicapper with best career run when third in 2017 Cesarewitch trial. Has offered very little since returning from a long-term absence and hard to fancy until he is upped in trip.

Recent Godolphin purchase. Has finished tailed off on both starts for new yard, including 9L fourth at Ripon (1m4f, good) in July. Needs to bounce back and has plenty on his plate.

Ran with credit on stable debut at Nottingham two starts ago but bombed out with 17L last of four at Ripon (1m2f) in July. Hard to fancy off the back of that.

Has seemed to turn a corner recently and backed up promising effort at Catterick two starts ago with 3/4L success at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm). 4lb higher for this but remains on a workable mark. Claims.

Betting

Forecast

Celestial Force (11/4), December Second (3/1), Medalla De Oro (3/1), Statuario (5/1), Glasses Up (11/2), Bollin Joan (8/1), Roar (10/1), Rake's Progress (12/1), Appointed (12/1), Point Taken (25/1), Great Hall (25/1), Shrewd (28/1), Moving Forward (33/1), Lady Camelot (40/1)

Verdict

A host of horses stake solid claims in an open-looking handicap, but preference is for CELESTIAL FORCE, who wasn't disgraced behind a very smart-looking prospect at Ascot and is likely to relish a lesser stamina-sapping trip and track. Appointed has been running with great credit recently and must be considered a contender given the handicapper is still winning to give her a chance, while Medalla De Oro could be dangerous if given a soft lead but may be vulnerable at a track which doesn't play to her strengths.
