3/1

Was second of seven here over this slightly longer trip of 6f last time where he was only denied by ¾L. Is down in distance here which is a positive as all three of his wins have come over 5f. Remains off the same mark as last time. Leading player.

10/1

The pick of his form this season was his second place finish at Chepstow (5f) three starts back. Has been well held on his last two runs. Has been eased 2lb by the handicapper. Others preferred as he bids for first success since July 2016.

Was runner-up on three occasions earlier in the season. Recent form has not been great, however, he was only 2½L away last time at Beverley (5f) when sixth of nine. Cheekpieces on for the first time. Has to be respected off this career low mark.

10/1

Last success came earlier this year on the AW at Kempton (6f). Was fancied to do well last time when he went off as the 3/1 favourite at Bath (5½f) but could only finish fifth of seven. Down 2lb. Each-way claims.

Experienced mare who recorded three victories on the AW over the winter at Wolverhampton. Has run modestly well on her return to turf this season, including latest at Windsor (5f) when third of eight. Capable of success off this mark.

12/1

Was a C&D here in 2016 but since then her best form has come at Chepstow. Was third of 11 at Carlisle (5f) two starts back but then was disappointing at Haydock (5f) last time when 10th of 12. Has to improve to record first win of the season.

Has scored twice of the AW this year, both wins coming at Newcastle over this 5f trip. Was seventh of 10 on his latest start at Beverley (5f). Has been eased 3lb since then which will help. Can't ignore completely off this mark.

0-4 on the Flat but has prevailed once on the AW. Was second of 14 at Beverley, beaten by just a nose, two starts back. Could only finish 10th of 13 last time on the AW at Wolverhampton (6f). Others preferred on this surface.

7/1

Has been below his best this season but was much better last time when second of 11 at Ayr over this distance. Remains off the same mark which is 9lb lower than his last success so he has to have a good chance here on his latest start.

33/1

Has just two wins from 75 appearances in a career which stretches back to October 2011. Was sixth of seven on his latest appearance at this track over 6f. Very difficult to make a case for on the evidence of his current form.

Betting

Forecast

Bahuta Acha (3/1), Toni's A Star (6/1), Qaaraat (6/1), One Boy (7/1), Atyaaf (15/2), Decision Maker (8/1), Secret Potion (10/1), Ladweb (10/1), David's Beauty (12/1), The Golden Cue (25/1), Minty Jones (33/1)

Verdict

BAHUTA ACHA looked back to his best last time where he finished a close second over 6f. This drop down in distance will help his chances as he is a multiple winner at this distance, with another success likely here. One Boy showed encouraging signs last time at Ayr to suggest he is in with a good shot here, while Toni's A Star can not be discounted from another big run over a distance she has had so much success over.
