59-7OR: 60CD
8/1

Was successful over this C&D earlier in her career. Her form this season has been mixed. She was ninth of 13 at this track over this distance last time. Has been eased 2lb. Needs to improve on what she has shown recently.

Three-time C&D winner who was fourth of 10 here over this distance last time, 2¼L behind Macs Blessings. Has been dropped 2lb by the handicapper which helps his chances here. Not to be discounted at a course he enjoys.

8/1

A C&D winner who was back to winning ways last time over this distance at Thirsk. Has gone up 4lb for his last victory which means he will need to find more if he is to follow it up. One to consider on his return to form.

Won over this C&D back in July and since then he has been in consistent form without further success. He was second of eight last time at Ayr over 6f, beaten a nose. Has gone up 2lb but remains one for the shortlist.

20/1

Ex-French raider who is yet to score in the UK. Was fifth of 13 over this C&D last time off a 2lb higher mark than this. Needs to improve but may now be off a workable position in the weights. One to watch.

12/1

Completed a hat-trick of wins at Lingfield last time over this distance. Has gone up 3lb for his latest success, however, he has scored over a 4lb higher mark than this so he has every chance of following it up again.

Is a three-time winner but his form this season has not been great. He was sixth of 10 last time at Ayr (7f), 5½L behind Kodimoor. Down 4lb where he is capable off this mark. Form has to improve to be in the mix though.

Lightly-raced gelding who has had just the six starts so far. He was second of 10 at Thirsk (7f) three starts back. Could only finish 10th of 14 at Thirsk over 1m last time though. Needs to bounce back. Others appeal more.

Still searching for her fist win after 13 starts. She showed some promise on her opening run for her new yard last time though when second of eight at Beverley (7½f). Remains off the same mark as latest. Each-way chance.

Is now on a losing run which stretches back to September 2017. There have been no signs of that run ending this season, although he was a little better last time at Catterick (6f) when fifth of 11. Others preferred here.

40/1

Experienced gelding who does not have a great strike-rate. Scored on the AW at Southwell (1m) back in April but since switching back to turf, his form has been poor. He has been eased 3lb from his last start on this surface. Others appeal more.

15/2

Has just the one win in 21 starts. Last two performances do offer some encouragement, particularly his latest where he was only 1L behind when fourth of 11 at Ayr (7f). Remains off the same mark. Has to be respected on basis of last run.

Still searching for that opening success after 27 attempts. Came close at Beverley (7½f) three starts back when third of 14, beaten ¼L. She has been well held on last two appearances though. Others stand out more.

Scored for only the second time in her career on her last outing on the AW at Newcastle (6f). Is rated 7lb lower on turf where she has yet to hit the frame in seven starts. Still has something to prove on this surface. Others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Hippeia (9/2), Our Charlie Brown (13/2), Macs Blessings (15/2), Leeshaan (15/2), The Stalking Moon (8/1), Bee Machine (8/1), Kodimoor (12/1), Chickenfortea (12/1), Ingleby Molly (16/1), Naples Bay (18/1), Eldelbar (20/1), Ghathanfar (22/1), Dominannie (33/1), Muqarred (40/1), Slieve Donard (66/1)

Verdict

KODIMOOR is in the best form of his career and although he is only just about getting the job done, he is worth sticking with here as he is still off a winnable mark, judging by his old form. Macs Blessings has not been out of the frame in his last five starts and that run shouldn't end here on his step back up to 7f, while Bee Machine will need to improve again to add to his recent success at Thirsk so he may have to settle for third place.
