7/1

Respectable second in the Queen's Cup over C&D at the start of the season but has been out of sorts in two starts since. Pulled up in the Ascot Stakes before 18L defeat over 1m6f at that track in July. Needs to bounce back.

Useful horse in bumpers and is 2-4 in the Flat sphere, including 1m4f debut success at this track. Showed further improvement to win 1m4f Ripon handicap last time and is the one to beat on form.

Hasn't won since May 2018 but has generally been running with credit this season. Fared better than the result suggested when 3L sixth in competitive Ripon handicap (1m4f) on latest start but may be vulnerable to less exposed rivals.

Looked to have lost her way slightly in June before finishing a staying on second in 1m4f Newcastle handicap last month. Nature of her run suggests 1m6f should pose no issue but has 2lb rise to contend with. Place claims.

Has thrown in two career-best efforts in last two starts, winning readily at Windsor before respectable second in 1m4f Thirsk handicap. 6lb above last winning mark but rarely runs a bad race. Respected.

Has some useful form at this track over hurdles and shaped encouragingly over an inadequate trip at Newmarket before flopping over C&D last time out. This is a tougher race and best watched on first start for new yard.

Betting

Forecast

Alright Sunshine (11/10), Dragons Voice (11/4), Jabbaar (7/1), Claire Underwood (7/1), Ulster (7/1), Theglasgowwarrior (10/1), Needs To Be Seen (20/1), Maifalki (25/1)

Verdict

A race where the least exposed horses in the field stake the best claims, ALRIGHT SUNSHINE has progressed with every run on the Flat so far and is unbeaten from one start in handicaps. While he has a 4lb rise to contend with he looks the one to beat and could be one to consider for some major handicaps in the autumn if he keeps improving. Dragons Voice seems to have found a level of consistency in this type of company and could be on a dangerous mark on a track where stamina isn't emphasised, while Theglasgowwarrior looks tailor-made for staying handicaps based on his Newcastle effort last time.
