5/1

Lightly raced for his current yard and well backed at Ayr last month. His effort petered out on that occasion but he wasn't beaten far at the line. Still on a handy mark and highly respected. Well drawn too. (Non-runner at Haydock on Thursday.)

Form was regressive for Richard Hannon and there's been little sign of change in two starts for his current yard. The trainer had a welcome winner at Catterick on Tuesday night but this fellow is only an outside bet to repeat the feat.

Still no joy in the first-time cheekpieces last time out and extended her record to 0-7 with a moderate effort at Catterick; big improvement required from the filly and she is one to be wary of at present.

Won twice at Yarmouth at the start of summer but found things tougher after reassessment. Best when there is a strong pace but still capable at this level even though face value says he's high enough in the weights after two modest efforts lately.

Still chasing the elusive first win but on a handy mark and not much to find to make the fame in this company. The first-time blinkers can help but worth remembering the filly couldn't land a blow inside the final furlong at Wolverhampton last week.

Still a maiden after 11 starts and has been regressive in three runs since making a respectable debut for her current yard at Ripon in June. No impression from this mark last time out and hard to recommend as one to follow.

Finished just under 2l behind Lincoln Red when they met at Yarmouth in June but now 5lb better off with that rival this time around, so reasonable claims at the weights. Poor run last time needs to be forgiven though.

Races for only the fourth time in a handicap but not seen since finishing well down the field at Redcar last September (well behind Lincoln Red that day); and plenty to prove after the absence.

Not much to get excited about from the filly's first handful of races (this will be only her third start in a handicap) and her recent wind operation needs to be the catalyst for a big improvement. Others are much more appealing on form.

The majority of her seven previous races took place at Ripon but the filly hasn't even made the frame wherever she's been tried. She's dropped 9lb in the handicap since June but she still makes limited appeal on her first visit to her local course.

4/1

Got off the mark in a gritty manner when wearing down a well-backed stablemate at Redcar nine days ago. That was only his third run since being gelded and it's feasible to suggest he's now a more focused character. Has to be on the shortlist.

Going by the pick of the gelding's previous efforts - his third-place finish behind House Deposit at Redcar last October being a particularly relevant piece of form - he can go well in this company. Another to bear in mind.

Hasn't made great strides forward in three starts to date and has a stiff test ahead on these terms. Best watched on this, his handicap debut.

Out of the handicap and hard to recommend given that she's been well beaten in all three previous starts up to press. She was third of five last time out but still 6l adrift of the winner at the line.

A confirmed low-grade handicapper who is out of the weights and faces an almost unfeasible task on known form; very hard to see him being good enough.

Forecast

Grimsdyke (4/1), House Deposit (5/1), Princess Palliser (13/2), Lincoln Red (8/1), Josiebond (8/1), Highjacked (17/2), Saltie Girl (10/1), Lets Go Flo (12/1), Jill Rose (14/1), The Thorny Rose (16/1), Rangefield Express (16/1), Opera Kiss (25/1), Dixieland (33/1), Dilly Dilly (33/1), Wearraah (50/1), Kyllachy Castle (66/1), Hey Jazzy Lady (66/1)

Verdict

Much depends on whether HOUSE DEPOSIT is turned out after sitting out the action at Haydock yesterday. Assuming he does, it's notable he's got winning form under the predicted conditions and is still open to further progress under the tutelage of his new trainer. Grimsdyke also has more to offer after winning well last time. He looks a reformed character since being gelded and merits serious consideration. Lincoln Red already holds a few of these and is respected accordingly. He's well drawn and will be a player if he can bounce back from a couple of moderate efforts since his brace of wins at Yarmouth earlier in the summer. Highjacked is another to bear in mind.
