13/2

Won on the AW from a 1lb lower mark around this time last year but five starts this season returned little. The drop in trip will help and the rider's 5lb claim helps with the burden of top weight but the filly still has something to prove just now.

Held his form well since winning over an extended 1m3f here in May after a previously successful AW campaign during springtime; been expensive to follow but can't crab his consistency. Capable of being thereabouts once more.

Not seen since a run over hurdles in April and reverts to the Flat for the first time in almost a year; not a great record when fresh and will probably be a lot sharper for the outing.

20/1

Mixed form this season but only 3lb above his last winning mark (and given a chance by the handicapper since his last run). Has stayed further but yet to win over this trip so still needs to be at his best. The first-time visor can help.

Running well of late and responds kindly for this rider in particular; has won from higher marks so merits respect despite being on a ten-race losing run. Beaten by back-to-form rivals in a seller and a ladies race in his last two starts.

5/2

In good form since arriving at his current yard in March; stays well and respected from just a 3lb higher mark than for his win at Chepstow (2m, good) in May. The rider is good value for his 5lb claim lately but the drop in trip might not be ideal.

A modest maiden who has been in poor form since reverting to the Flat and faces a very stern challenge from out of the weights. Others have far stronger claims.

Betting

Forecast

Singing The Blues (5/4), Panatos (5/2), Royal Flag (5/1), Miss Latin (13/2), Zoffany Bay (9/1), Conkering Hero (10/1), Hope Is High (10/1), The Detainee (20/1), Lady Natasha (66/1)

Verdict

The consistent SINGING THE BLUES has been expensive to follow lately but his attitude is commendable and he might just be worth another shot in what, on paper, looks a modest contest. He goes well at this course and should have no issues with the predicted state of the ground. Hope Is High is also effective at this track and finds herself on an attractive mark after a luckless campaign last year. This is a more appropriate test of her stamina than she encountered at Sandown last time out and she represents good value at the predicted odds. Royal Flag and Conkering Hero are others to consider.
