10-race maiden returned from wind surgery with a narrow defeat on reappearance. Disappointed badly twice since and best watched despite drop back in grade.

Has not won since his debut and his form this year remains in the doldrums. First run in blinkers and following wind surgery but hard to be enthusiastic about.

Broke through on the AW in the winter and added a second success at Nottingham in July. Well below that latest at Haydock on quick ground which may be a concern again.

Found plenty under pressure in landing a hat-trick of wins on the AW at Chelmsford, including on first try at this trip back in April. Has gone close here previously on quick ground and remains on a good mark.

Won twice on the AW back in 2017 but on a long losing sequence since. Down in grade but recent turf form for new stable doesn't suggest he's about to end the barren run.

19-race maiden left three poor efforts for new yard behind when second over 1m4f last time. That was a decent contest for this grade and possible he could kick on now.

Nine-race maiden shaped better on a couple of AW runs but finished tamely back on the turf at Doncaster. Possible quicker ground may suit but hard to be confident in.

Prominent racer; in decent shape early season, winning over 1m2f at Nottingham (good to firm) and narrowly failing to double up at Musselburgh (1m1f). Returns from a break following a poor run and remains on a good mark.

On a very poor run of form since firm ground handicap win over a mile at Bath in May. Remains one to overlook.

Has fallen 7lb below his last win but he's been struggling this season and despite a fourth last start was still well held. Best form has come with cut in the ground.

18-race maiden has largely struggled this year and likely his future will lie over jumps for current stable. Poor effort in selling company last time.

Inconsistent 18-race maiden has finished third in two of her last four starts but has to race from 5lb out of the handicap here. Others look more reliable.

Forecast

Sea Of Mystery (3/1), Orange Suit (7/2), Lady Alavesa (4/1), Destinys Rock (11/2), Cosmic Ray (8/1), Le Maharajah (8/1), Guvenor's Choice (11/1), Compass Point (12/1), Tobacco Road (14/1), Bhodi (16/1), Takiah (16/1), Mac O'Polo (33/1), Brockagh Cailin (50/1)

Verdict

COMPASS POINT progressed with three wins on the AW early in the year but has been suited by this sort of surface previously and remains one to keep on the right side of on this return. He's well handicapped along with Cosmic Ray who should be a danger having been freshened up. Sea Of Mystery remains a longstanding maiden but he's in good hands at his new stable and his latest run was encouraging.
