9/1

Still looking for his second win after scoring as a novice on the AW at Kempton (1m) in 2017. Has been well held on all three of his starts this season, including latest back on the AW at Kempton (1m4f) when fourth of seven. Needs to bounce back.

11/10

Lightly-raced but has a decent strike-rate with two wins from five starts. Scored at Newmarket (1m2f) on his penultimate run. Was fourth over that same C&D last time but only 2L off the winner. Shouldn't be discounted on his latest attempt.

14/1

A two-time C&D winner here this season. Stepped up in trip last time at Kempton (1m4f) on the AW where he was a long way behind in sixth place of seven. May need to find more off this latest mark on his return to turf but he does enjoy it here.

8/1

Experienced gelding who won over this C&D last year. Has shown some promising form this season, including on latest outing at Goodwood (1m1f) when third of 17. Back up in trip and has gone up 3lb. Each-way claims.

4/1

Has just the one win so far which came at Chester over 7f. Has yet to prove himself over this longer trip. Was fourth of 13 last time at Goodwood (1m3f). Has been eased 1lb and drops down slightly in distance. Others appeal more.

5/1

His sole success so far came at Windsor (1m½f) last September. Has been running consistently well this season with four second place finishes, including latest at Epsom (1m4f) in a 10 runner field. Back down in trip. Leading contender.

Betting

Forecast

Caradoc (11/10), Mordred (4/1), Loch Ness Monster (4/1), Allegiant (5/1), Dark Red (11/2), Rotherwick (8/1), Highbrow (9/1), Lawn Ranger (14/1)

Verdict

ALLEGIANT has been the runner-up on four occasions so far this season but he is sure to be rewarded soon if he continues producing those consistent performances. With a drop back down to 1m2f here, the gelding has a great chance of getting his nose in front. Dark Red was much better at Newmarket last time and a repeat of that performance will see him so close again, while Rotherwick is a C&D winner here who is good enough to complete the placings on his return to this distance.
  1. Allegiant
  2. Dark Red
  3. Rotherwick
