His two handicap wins have come off marks in the mid-90s and so will need to be on top of his game returning from a year's break. The market would be expected to reveal more.

All four wins have come over 7f and three of those were gained on a soft surface. Impressive last time and weighted accordingly on Polytrack debut, but others may have his measure at this trip.

Finished behind Bedouin's Story at Newcastle in June, but has improved on both starts since and gained a third career success at Ripon 17 days ago. Has always looked the type who could prove better than a handicapper and this his chance to prove it.

Won three races in 2018 and placed in three valuable handicaps this term. Has run well here previously in similar company and now given a chance by the handicapper following two below-par efforts. Stable 8-20 here with their older horses.

Has now won three races since being gelded and clearly suited by fast ground. Needs to prove his effectiveness on an AW surface off a career high mark, but yard are in tremendous form.

Improving filly who has won two of her last three since dropping back to a mile. Showed tactical versatility to score from off the pace at Sandown, but the form looks suspect and a 7lb rise demands another career best.

Now 3-4 over C&D following an impressive display in a quick time two weeks ago. A 9lb rise for her latest success is not insurmountable and she has to be a leading player.

Only 1lb higher than when last successful and her turn has looked near lately. Unsuited by how the race developed last time and the longer trip here is also a help. All three victories have come in September.

Betting

Forecast

Ibraz (4/1), Solar Heights (4/1), Bedouin's Story (9/2), Maamora (5/1), Commander Cole (5/1), Qaroun (10/1), Universal Gleam (12/1), Akvavera (16/1)

Verdict

This is the right time of year to catch AKVAVERA and she could be the answer to a tricky contest having slipped to an attractive mark given she is close to her last winning mark and finished fourth in Listed company in November. Ibraz and Maamora may go on to prove better than mere handicappers and it would be no surprise to see them involved, whilst Universal Gleam makes the long journey south for an in-form yard. Solar Heights is proving something of a C&D specialist and the time she recorded two weeks ago is more impressive than the form. Qaroun represents a yard with a good record here with their older horses and Bedouin Story looks the pick of the Godolphin pair.
