5/1

Has won both starts since returning from wind surgery and has shaped like this step up in trip could suit, though mixed signs in his pedigree about that. Best performances have come with some juice in the ground but respected for an in form yard.

Has won three of his last six starts and only found one too good at Ripon last time out. Has won over this longer trip on fast ground and respected from the same handicap mark.

8/1

C&D winner here in July and ran well when runner-up at Beverley last time out (third has won since). Return to quicker ground should suit and while up 2lb for his latest effort, he gives the impression we might not have seen the best of him yet.

11/1

Hasn't won since his debut but not beaten all that far when eighth in this race last year and he was only beaten 1L over C&D. Hasn't built on that in two subsequent efforts but likely capable from this mark. Cheekpieces replace visor.

Won three races for John Gosden but two of those came on AW and he's unproven on soft ground. Respectable effort at Ripon last time but up 1lb for that and has a patchy profile.

Won twice earlier in the campaign but his three runs since a 60-day absence have been disappointing, including here last time out. Yet to win over this far and has questions to answer at present.

Showed promise in two novice races prior to a dominant performance at Windsor last time. Won with plenty in hand and while his opening handicap mark isn't particularly lenient, he's entirely unexposed and has a talented apprentice claiming 5lb.

Not the most consistent performer but he's won twice this year including a C&D success when getting the better of Addis Ababa. Best form has come on soft ground though and has been struggling from this mark of late.

Won a competitive handicap here in June but he's been well below that form in two subsequent. Has historically struggled from this sort of mark and he's never won over this far.

Won his maiden at Southwell in good style and returned from nearly a year off the track with a promising effort at Redcar prior to an impressive win at Pontefract. Struggled since though and has stamina to prove at this trip.

10lb below his last winning mark but with good reason, having put in several below par efforts already this season. Needs to come on markedly for his reappearance at Yarmouth; fast ground in his favour at least.

Has enjoyed an excellent year so far, making it five wins from starts at Redcar last time out. However, this is a sizable step up in class and he's 10lb higher now but not without each-way claims.

Gained a first win of this season over C&D last time out, a second course success but both wins have come on softer ground than what looks likely here. 4lb higher and a wide draw are enough to temper enthusiasm here.

Has a fair strike-rate of five wins from 25 but hasn't won since his seasonal reappearance. Has won at this venue and going okay in defeat of late but this is tougher than those recent assignments. Well beaten in this last year and stamina to prove.

Arrives here bidding for his fourth win in five starts and clearly loves fast ground, with all career wins coming on good to firm. In command at the finish last time and live claims from 3lb higher here.

Forecast

Passion And Glory (2/1), Spiorad (5/1), Archie Perkins (8/1), Addis Ababa (11/1), Coolagh Forest (12/1), Five Helmets (12/1), Fennaan (12/1), Lord Of The Rock (12/1), Ladies First (14/1), Mr Coco Bean (16/1), Give It Some Teddy (20/1), Alfred Richardson (20/1), Cockalorum (20/1), Cote d'Azur (25/1), Music Seeker (25/1), Kripke (25/1), Poet's Dawn (33/1)

Verdict

Another wide-open renewal of this race but at this stage of his career, PASSION AND GLORY could still be anything and he beat two useful performers with the minimum of fuss at Windsor last time out. Lord Of The Rock is another who could be ahead of the handicapper while Five Helmets isn't one to rule out given his recent run of wins.
