Only just missed out on Carlisle debut in July on quick ground over 1m3f, then dropped back to this trip at Carlisle last time and won readily on heavy ground. 7lb penalty makes life tougher but has plenty going for him.

Archipenko who has indicated he has some ability on both starts so far over a mile on AW and steps up a furlong here. Hard to know how he'll fare on heavy ground but he is not without a chance.

Irish raider from yard enjoying a terrific campaign. Well beaten off a mark of 68 in Galway handicap last time and on the face of it appears to have no easy task. Won't harm to check for any market support though.

45,000 Sir Percy gelding out of an unraced Malificent mare. Lost touch final half mile when beaten a long way at Haydock over 1m4f on debut in June. faces a different task here but will probably need a little more time.

Fully exposed Sir Prancealot gelding who has yet to score in nine attempts but went closest on penultimate start when second in heavy ground mile handicap at Leicester. Also second over C&D off 64 in May but should find one or two too good.

Helmet filly cost just 4000 guineas as a yearling but suggested she could win a race or two when failing by just half a length on debut at Redcar over 7f last week. Up in trip, but not out of it if she handles conditions.

Betting

Forecast

Roman Stone (5/4), Ravenscar (5/2), Bajan Excell (9/2), Smeaton (15/2), Gabriel Oak (20/1), Art Of Diplomacy (20/1)

Verdict

ROMAN STONE made all to beat some better fancied southern raiders in heavy ground at Carlisle last time and should make a very bold bid to repeat the feat despite having to give away weight all round. Ravenscar made a promising start at Redcar, and while this is a very different test she is certainly respected. Smeaton handles conditions and will run his race too, while it wouldn't surprise to see Art Of Diplomacy get involved here, although he looks one for handicaps in the future. He is not without interest on this turf debut.
