Finished 3l behind Fard at Carlisle last month but might find the drop in trip suits, so not a forlorn hope that he'll cope. However, his best form has been on a stiffer course than this, so might have to settle for a minor role.

Dropped back to this trip last time out but never recovered from a slow start and was struggling before they even hit the two furlong marker. The form has been boosted since, so a betting check is still advised.

Good effort when finishing a close-up fifth of nine at Doncaster on his penultimate start but was then brushed aside at Ripon last time out. The handicapper has given him a chance and this is a weak race but he still needs to be at his best.

Solid effort to finish second at Redcar last time out and is set for a 2lb rise in future handicaps so has a good claims on these terms. Appears to have thrived since joining his current yard so has to merit an interest.

Has posted several efforts that give her claims in a race of this nature but her record of 0-26 raises cause for concern. The mare is also better over a slightly longer trip so needs a lot to go her way.

Ran above market expectations at Chester in June but couldn't repeat the effort on unfavourable terms last time out. Best efforts have been posted on the AW and looks a risky option once more.

Poor form posted from eight starts and very hard to take anything positive from those runs. Would be a very surprising winner.

0-37 and hard to recommend after the mare finished last of 16 at Ayr last time out. Also has form to reverse with Isabella Ruby and is another who needs luck to be on her side.

Ran well to finish fourth of 11 at Catterick earlier in the week and would have place claims if able to dish out a repeat dose. The mare is inconsistent though and previous efforts this season suggest she's not one to rely upon too heavily.

Betting

Forecast

Radjash (6/5), Blindingly (5/1), Fard (11/2), Dominannie (8/1), Caledonian Gold (11/1), Alqaab (11/1), Isabella Ruby (20/1), Yorkshire Rover (25/1), Henrietta's Dream (50/1), Bevsboy (50/1), Red Hot Fusion (50/1)

Verdict

This looks the right time for RADJASH to exploit his current mark and he is taken to build on his near miss at Redcar late last month. He's due for a 2lb rise in future handicaps and looks the most attractive betting proposition on these terms. Alqaab has snippets of form that give him a good chance of finally ridding himself of the maiden tag, while Fard and Blindingly are closely matched and can scrap it out as best of the rest if the trip isn't too much of an issue.
