7/1

A regular around here, five of his six wins coming over C&D and usually runs his race. On a fair mark and for one that likes to come with a late rattle, stall 9 is probably a decent enough draw. Not out of it if the breaks come late.

C&D winner here back in March, ran well off higher marks after that but not seen out since disappointing at Bath in May. Might need this after a short break then, and unless market says otherwise, is probably best watched.

Used to blast off in front but ridden with more restraint these days, tactics that paid dividends over this C&D last time (well backed) but a 5lb rise and potentially tricky draw in stall 1 make life harder. Still has to be on the shortlist.

Back to form when successful at Wolverhampton last time out, and is holding his form well enough, but the worry is this drop back to a sharp 5f, which might take him off his feet early. Others make a bit more appeal.

7/1

Winner at Ripon back in May and has continued in good form since then, runner-up in four of her last five starts but tends to do all her good work late on, and this sharp 5f may not play to her strengths. Chance, but others preferred.

3/1

Very well handicapped if you go back far enough but that's down to a series of pretty moderate efforts and the addition of cheekpieces (removed here) had little effect last time. Not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.

Having first start for new trainer tonight, but wasn't in any great form previously and debatable whether this quick 5f is what she wants. Hopes basically pinned on a change of scenery, and she makes minimal appeal.

Made all to win over 5f at Ripon last year, but this season's efforts come nowhere near that and he was well beaten at Yarmouth when last seen. Hard to make much of a case for him in current form.

Has her quirks (often early/walked to post), does have a C&D win to her name (from 2015) and capable of the upset if she's in the mood off this mark, but she's clearly risky and others look more solid.

14/1

C&D winner back in January and on the same mark here, so there's some sort of case to be constructed for him if you look hard enough, not disgraced last two starts despite finishing well beaten but others more persuasive all the same.

Betting

Forecast

Requited (3/1), Come On Dave (7/2), Olaudah (7/2), Fairy Fast (7/1), Roundabout Magic (7/1), Fareeq (10/1), Cookupastorm (12/1), Pharoh Jake (14/1), Gifted Zebedee (20/1), Flowing Clarets (33/1)

Verdict

There should be a bit of pace on here, with a few of these wanting to race prominently, and although stall 9 isn't normally a positive it does mean that ROUNDABOUT MAGIC should meet fewer traffic problems when he comes with his customary late charge. He takes a drop in grade here and can make that count by picking them off late. Come On Dave has the best of the draw if connections decide to revert to old front-running tactics with him and he looks a big danger. Fairy Fast and, at a likely bigger price, Pharoh Jake are worthy of consideration too.
