99-7OR: 65D
12/1

Winner of four of his 42 starts, which isn't great, but does take a step down in grade after being far from disgraced at Epsom last time. Handles downhill tracks well, stall 1 not ideal for a hold-up horse but not totally written off just yet.

Last couple of starts have seen him refind a bit of form, not beaten far at Chepstow and then in the frame at Yarmouth last time out. Looks about ready to win again, good jockey booking and if handling the track, has a solid chance.

Soundly beaten last five starts, beating only a handful of horses home and handicapper only slowly relenting. Hard to fancy here.

Placed twice in July, only beaten ½l at Pontefract but a bit disappointing when made favourite at Chepstow and well below par at Catterick last time out. Needs to bounce back now, and hard to find a reason why she would.

Likes it here, two wins from three starts at the track and came right back to form when making all to score ar Lingfield last time out. 2lb rise for that of no concern, will get an easy lead here and will have to be caught. Chances of following up.

9/2

Impeccable record here, three wins from three starts (all over this trip, too) and has dropped hints that his turn might not be that far away. Gets a change of headgear here, which, if it has the desired effect, gives him a big chance off this mark.

Only had the six starts so at least has room for improvement, but she will need it on current evidence, well beaten last couple of starts and the addition of a hood (which is removed here) has done little. Others readily preferred.

Popped up at Wolverhampton in March but two subsequent efforts, back on turf, have been well below that form. Could be that he simply prefers sand surfaces these days, and isn't that hard to pass over here.

Only beaten ½l over C&D last September, and is 5lb lower here, so clear chance from a handicapping point of view and has run well again here since then. Mixed efforts in between, but might be he saves his best for here, and has an e/w chance.

Course favourite that bounced back to form at Windsor last time, sticking on well for a close second and he's now a whopping 12lb lower than his last win here. Great chance for course win number 10, and bring the house down once more.

C&D winner here two starts ago, and drop back in trip was probably against him last time out at Wolverhampton, running on too late (10f). Wouldn't be out of this, with the step back up to 12f ideal, and still looks well weighted.

Betting

Forecast

Paddy The Chef (7/2), Born To Reason (4/1), Esspeegee (9/2), King Athelstan (13/2), Roy Rocket (7/1), Neff (7/1), Amanto (12/1), Contingency Fee (14/1), Star Of Athena (18/1), Kirtling (20/1), Rose Crown (20/1), River Dart (28/1)

Verdict

This is very competitive for the money and you can make cases for plenty of them. Contingency Fee and Esspeegee both have good form at the track and the latter looks dangerously well handicapped at present, so any money for him needs noting. Paddy The Chef comes into this in good form and looks an obvious candidate, but ROY ROCKET's love affair with Brighton may well continue today. He dropped a huge hint at Windsor last time and if he's now found his form, is going to be hard to beat from a low-looking handicap mark.
