5/1

Listed winner at the end of a highly progressive three-year-old campaign. Back from a break latest when third to the high class Invincible Army in a Group 3. Unbeaten in two starts here and 4-7 on the AW overall.

Windsor winner two starts back before disappointing from tricky draw at the same track. Form has been inconsistent this year and although he's twice a winner over 5f here, all his winning form has been at the minimum trip.

Veteran has been in good form this season with three turf wins and was a creditable third over this C&D last time. He'd need to be at his very best off these terms but another good run likely.

Remains 6-13 on the AW and without a win on turf so should appreciate a switch back to an artificial surface. C&D winner in January and was in career best form before switching to turf. Likely to be involved.

All three AW wins have come at Kempton and his only previous visit here was when below par in this race last year. Yet to hit form in four starts this year and looks one to oppose.

Changed yards and returning from nearly two years off the track when sixth of seven over 5f here. Disappointed in a claiming handicap at Yarmouth and again below par over this C&D latest. Best watched for now.

Twice a winner over 7f here and back to winning ways over this trip at Ayr in June. Not disgraced in the Stewards' Cup consolation race last start but this will require more off these terms.

Ran a career best when winning over this C&D in May. Matched that form at Newcastle two starts back and didn't get the run of things off a slower pace here last time. Likely to get a strong pace to aim at here and looks well weighted.

Enjoyed a fruitful campaign on AW in the winter with three wins. Looked to be running into form on his second run back at Wolverhampton when hampered. C&D winner last September and a big run likely.

Betting

Forecast

Boy In The Bar (7/2), Desert Doctor (4/1), Watchable (5/1), Encrypted (5/1), Katheefa (6/1), Muthmir (6/1), Busby (8/1), Royal Birth (8/1), Unabated (14/1), Polybius (20/1)

Verdict

Busby took a few runs to peak last year and he really looked to be coming to full fitness last time on his second run back from a break. KATHEEFA should be suited by a strong run race at this distance, is a horse still on the up and best in at the weights. Encrypted would need to find a bit more off these terms but the fact that he's unbeaten in two starts here brings him very much into the equation. Desert Doctor is another likely to fare better back on the AW.
