4/1

Consistent sort who finds himself back on his last winning handicap mark. This trip should be ideal and there's every chance he can be effective on this surface given his AW record; eye-catching jockey booking.

11/2

Won this race last year from a 3lb lower handicap mark and has subsequently posted something like a career best at Lingfield. Races from his lower turf mark here and will surely be a live player again.

8/1

A four-time winner on AW and not beaten far in his bid for back-to-back turf wins at Galway last time out. May find others a little better handicapped and he's yet to win over a trip this short.

33/1

Won three races on AW last year, all at 1m+. In poor form when last seen though and while he's feasibly handicapped on his best form, he has questions to answer at present; debuts for new yard.

All three wins have come on AW (two at this trip) and he's been running well in defeat on turf this summer. Can make his presence felt from a workable mark here.

5/2

Gained a couple of wins for trainer Ivan Furtado and very well-handicapped on his best form (a win at Wolverhampton). Has run some big races in competitive handicaps at the Curragh of late and he rates as a fascinating contender here.

Has won twice already this year and has produced some fair runs in defeat on AW at Dundalk. However, form has tailed off judged on his three runs in August and still above his last winning handicap mark.

Produced a good third at this meeting last year and followed up on AW next time out. Well beaten when eased down at Dundalk and off since January; others preferred.

Has won twice on AW at Dundalk already this year but has been in and out of form in her four run turf campaign this summer. Each-way claims if she can reproduce the best of her AW form.

10/1

Sole win in 14 starts came in handicap company at Musselburgh earlier this year. Running well in defeat in her latest three starts and yard arrive in flying form; may need to improve for the drop back to this trip.

Betting

Forecast

Blacklooks (5/2), War Hero (4/1), Geological (4/1), Florencio (11/2), Koybig (8/1), Lappet (10/1), Ken's Sam's (12/1), Alfirak (12/1), Ocean Air (14/1), Royal Admiral (16/1), Navajo Ridge (20/1), Able Jack (33/1), Heir of Excitement (33/1)

Verdict

Another competitive heat but a chance is taken on BLACKLOOKS who has been shaping as if a win is near since joining this yard and he may be able to land another renewal of this race for owners the Melbourne 10. They also have last year's winner Florenico in the line up who has to be of interest again given that he can race from his reduced turf mark. Lappet if an interesting filly at the other end of the weights for a yard in form.
