Won Dundalk AW mile maiden for Ger Lyons last November prior to joining current yard. Runner-up last two starts over a mile and steps up 2f to tackle new trip. Fair chance if he stays.

Five-time winner who struck last time out in Newbury 1m2f amateurs handicap, his first win on turf, showing a good attitude. Raised 3lb but should again be in the mix.

Last win came in 1m2f h'cap at at Ripon in August 2018 off a mark of 75. Hasn't threatened to play a major role this season of higher marks but handicapper has relented and he has a chance now 3lb lower than his last success.

Two wins at Chelmsford at up to a mile, and stayed on well last time over 1m1f in first-time visor when second in fair York handicap. Failed to stay ony previous attempt at this extra furlong but well worth another try in current form.

Windsor mile novice winner in June then failed to shine dropped back in trip on handicap debut. Better last time back at a mile where stayed on at Windsor to be third and with stamina on dam's side might improve for the extra two furlongs here.

Came good at the eighth time of asking when staying on strongly to score over C&D last time. 5lb higher but has solid chance of following up with top jockey on board.

Put a couple of disappointing runs behind her when running on well to score over this trip at Leicester last time. Had run well at that venue before and interesting to see if she can build on that off 5lb higher at this track.

Betting

Forecast

The Corporal (5/2), Alhaazm (7/2), Beguiling Charm (5/1), Balladeer (13/2), Assembled (7/1), The Throstles (10/1), First Response (14/1), Windsor Cross (20/1), Cafe Espresso (33/1)

Verdict

THE CORPORAL is a fairly confident choice having appeared to turn over a new leaf when winning nicely over C&D last time. If in similar form a 5lb higher mark may not be enough to foil his follow-up bid. Beguiling Charm also won last time at Leicester, and is respected, although she has to prove she can do it away from the Odeby circuit. There are plenty of others with chances in an open affair, including Newbury winner The Throstles, first time tongue-tied Alhaazm, and Balladeer, who steps up in trip.
