7/1

Has been in good form on the AW with two wins from his last four starts. Was successful at Southwell (1m6f) in a 12 runner field back in May. Could only finish sixth of eight last time at Nottingham (1m6f). Good chance on this surface.

Still a maiden after 17 runs. Has been disappointing on his two runs since switching yards earlier this year. Was 10th of 13 last time on the AW at Kempton (2m). Visor on for the first time. Others make more of an appeal.

Dual-purpose gelding who was victorious over the extended 2m trip at Lingfield on turf two starts back. Was fourth of eight last time at the same track over 2m4f when going off as the 9/4 favourite. Strong claims here at this trip.

Has scored twice on this surface in bumpers but is yet to prevail on the Flat. Was fifth of six last time at Lingfield over 1m3½f where the trip seemed a little short for him. Stepping back up in distance which should help. Each-way claims.

Her sole success came at Wolverhampton (1m6f) back in May. Since then she has been unable to follow it up. She was sixth of 13 here over 1m6f last time out, two places behind Barca. Has been eased 1lb. One to consider.

Still a maiden after 13 races but has shown enough so far this season to suggest his opening success is not far away. Was fourth of 13 last time here over 1m6f when going off as the 5/2 favourite. Leading contender.

Has had the three runs so far and only once as he failed to finish last. He was at the rear of the field at the finish last time at Pontefract in a six runner contest over 1m2f. Big step up in trip today on his handicap debut. One to watch.

Was successful here last time out over 1m6f where he scored by a short-head in a 13 runner field. That was his first success since January 2015. Gone up 2lb for that victory and is stepping up in trip. One to consider.

Scored over hurdles at Huntingdon (2m) last November. Returned to the Flat at Nottingham (1m6f) last month where he ran well to finish fourth of 15. Has been eased 1lb. Has a good chance off this mark.

Yet to score in 24 races. Was fourth of 10 at Chepstow (2m) last time when going off at 25/1. Is now off a career low mark but has had plenty of opportunities to prevail so others are preferred more here.

Betting

Forecast

Barca (11/8), Beau Knight (5/1), Sacred Sprite (6/1), Heron (7/1), Giving Back (7/1), Fitzwilly (16/1), Demophon (20/1), Lazarus (20/1), Sea Of Mystery (25/1), Nineteenrbo'malley (66/1)

Verdict

BARCA has a great opportunity to break his maiden here. He was not far away at this track last time over 1m6f but this trip should suit him better so take him to get his first success at the 14th attempt. Sacred Sprite may have to settle for being behind Barca once again here but she shouldn't be too far away off this mark, while Fitzwilly is dropping back down in trip which will suit his chances so he can fill the placings.
  1. Barca
  2. Sacred Sprite
  3. Fitzwilly
