7/1

Dual-purpose gelding who ended his long run without success at Leicester (1m2f) two starts back. Was disappointing last time at Epsom (1m2f) where he had just one horse behind him in a seven runner field. Down 1lb. Each-way claims.

Has been in excellent form recently with two wins coming from her last three starts. Was impressive last time at Nottingham (1m½f) when scoring by 3½L. Has got a 6lb penalty but remains a leading contender.

Made a winning start to his career at Kempton (1m) on the AW last October. Has been unable to follow it up since then though. He has struggled since switching to turf, including on latest start at Beverley (1m½f). Others appeal more.

Remains a maiden after five starts. Was fancied to get his opening success last time at Kempton (1m) on the AW but could only finish sixth of 10. Remains off the same mark but switches to turf which should help. Worth considering.

Yet to score after nine runs but he has had some near misses. He was second of nine at Yarmouth (1m2f) on opening run of the campaign. Cheekpieces on for first time here. Needs to bounce back from disappointing effort at Windsor (1m2f) last time.

Picked up the third win of his career last time at Kempton (1m) on the AW. Form on turf earlier this year was modest. Has gone up 6lb so will need to produce more on this surface. Others are preferred.

Is 0-9 on turf but has scored twice on the AW. Been well held on her two starts this season, including latest at Epsom (1m2f) when sixth of nine. Down 2lb but difficult to fancy on this surface.

Won the AW at Southwell (1m) back in April. Is 0-9 on turf but she ran well at Chepstow (1m) two starts back when fourth of eight, beaten 2L. Needs to bounce back from disappointing effort at Salisbury (1m) on latest appearance.

Lightly-raced filly who tasted success at Bath (1m) back in May on her handicap debut. Has been unable to follow that up as she has been well held on her last two starts. Needs to produce more from this mark.

Betting

Forecast

Saikung (7/2), Baashiq (4/1), Skyman (5/1), Amor Fati (5/1), Stormingin (7/1), Le Maharajah (15/2), Settle Petal (8/1), Freckles (10/1), Club Tropicana (12/1), Kheros (20/1), Bond Angel (33/1)

Verdict

SAIKUNG has had a brilliant season so far and there could still be much more to come so take her with this 6lb penalty to record her third win in her last four starts at a trip she will enjoy. Amor Fati has done little wrong this season and it would be a surprise if he is not in contention at the finish here, while Skyman is much better on turf so expect a much better performance than his latest start which is likely to see him in the frame.
