5/4

Made a winning return to the Flat when keeping on well to fend off Orin Swift by 1L at Ascot (2m, soft) in May; off since (91 days) but if the forecast heavy rain does arrive he'll enter the thinking off just 4lb higher.

Course winner (1m4f); arrives seeking the hat-trick following wins at Nottingham (1m6f) and Goodwood (2m), beat Orin Swift by 1L on the latter occasion; raised a mere 2lb and ought to be tough to beat if the forecast rain arrives.

Broke her maiden on turf when springing a 10-1 surprise in a Class 4 fillies' handicap at Chester (2m, good) latest; 5lb higher; form loosely boosted by the fourth-placed So Near So Farhh winning at Chepstow.

Doesn't win all that often (1-14) and was somewhat of a nearly horse as a 3yo; is yet to compete beyond 1m6f, which was the trip when a close second to Follow Intello here (good to soft) three weeks ago; 2lb higher.

2014 Northumberland Plate winner; snapped a barren spell when scoring at Ripon (2m, good to soft) in June; rock-sold since adding a further victory at Chester (2m, good to firm); a grand servant who deserves respect.

33-race maiden; hasn't competed on the Flat since November 2016, or anywhere at all since March 2018; holds no realistic chance from miles outside of the handicap; simply making up the numbers.

Betting

Forecast

Agrapart (5/4), Nuits St Georges (7/4), Charlie D (5/1), Contrebasse (15/2), Angel Gabrial (8/1), Nafaayes (12/1), Swordbill (12/1), Trautmann (14/1), Star Of Namibia (66/1)

Verdict

Rain is integral to maximising the chances of a couple of these horses and should it arrive by the bucketload (entirely possible) expect the classy hurdler Agrapart and the hat-trick seeking NUITS ST GEORGES to be slugging out the finish. The selection continues on an upward curve and a mere 2lb rise for his most recent success (2m, Goodwood) appears lenient. Of the remainder, Contrebasse is worthy of consideration as he tackles this 2m trip for the very first time while the 2014 Northumberland Plate winner Angel Gabrial has somewhat rolled back the years in recent weeks.
