9/2

C&D winner last month, but has gone off the boil since. Back to a more realistic mark, but needs to be spot on to defy top weight.

Likes to get his toe in (though has also won on good). Has run respectably in three successive handicaps now, and makes some each-way appeal, but more needed for the win.

Chester specialist who is 0-5 here, where he has never finished within 3L of the winner. Looks thoroughly exposed and others have stronger claims.

Acts on good or slower. Just 1lb higher than his 0-85 York win last October, but needs more than in recent outings to secure another victory.

Relatively consistent performer who is up 3lb for scoring narrowly at Sandown (5f, soft) last time. Sees out 6f and has run well here before, but might just be a bit too high in the handicap now.

C&D winner on heavy in June (handicap debut), when 8lb lower. Went close at Thirsk next time from just 2lb lower. Shade disappointing in higher grade last time, but has to be taken very seriously at this level, with any rain a bonus.

Ran well here on debut last October, and arrives seeking a hat-trick after back-to-back Hamilton wins over this trip on good/soft ground. Initial mark stiff based on those, but open to improvement and not ruled out.

Won a Southwell maiden (5f, AW) in February, but has been inconsistent since. Went close on soft at Doncaster in June, when on this mark, but disappointed either side of that. Hard to be confident.

Betting

Forecast

Came From The Dark (5/2), Fantasy Keeper (7/2), Gabrial The Devil (9/2), Last Empire (5/1), Captain Jameson (11/2), Baby Steps (6/1), Normandy Barriere (7/1), Gymkhana (10/1), Antagonize (16/1), Fair Alibi (25/1), Powerallied (25/1)

Verdict

Not many obvious contenders here and CAME FROM THE DARK is the suggestion to add to his C&D win from earlier in the season. He will need to find a little bit more in this field, but is open to that and any rain would be a plus. Antagonize is also of interest, as he probably has the speed to make an impact over this trip, while Baby Steps, Last Empire and Normandy Barriere are others with claims.
