Back to form with two solid thirds for new stable. Drop of 1lb brings him back on his last winning mark and likely to go close again for a stable in form. Rates a leading contender.

Left Godolphin for £15,000 and won on stable debut last December. Form has regressed in last three AW runs (including following wind surgery) and questions to answer back on turf.

Eight-race maiden matched the pick of his best form for John Gosden with two solid thirds for his new yard. Likely to go well once again off the same mark. Leading hope.

Last two wins came over this C&D although losing run goes back to March 2018 despite falling mark. Just having third start for new yard and suited by drop in trip. Needs rain to be at his best.

Has been inconsistent this season and although he's now 8lb below his last winning mark, his recent form hasn't been up to the same standard. Better at Ripon last time so possible the drop in grade may revitalise him.

Betting

Forecast

Delph Crescent (5/2), Detachment (11/4), Elhafei (3/1), Geranium (3/1), Archippos (4/1), Tommy Hallinan (14/1), Kaser (14/1), Bhodi (20/1)

Verdict

Elhafei and DETACHMENT hold similar credentials with both coming off the back of two thirds. The former looks as though he's hitting some good form for his new yard while the selection kept on strongly two starts back that suggested he has more to offer back at this trip. Geranium rates an obvious danger following a second career win and remains on a perfectly workable mark.
