8/1

Maiden winner over this trip at Lingfield (good) last month and followed up seven days later on handicap bow at Bath (good to soft). That wasn't the deepest race so more required from 6lb higher perch now.

Experienced five-year-old has won two of his last three starts, at Leicester and over this C&D, both in Class 6 fare. Held in between in this grade, has yet to score off a mark this high.

Won a maiden handicap at Ffos Las (5f, good to firm) in late July and followed up under penalty at same track three days later. Since been well held in two runs and will have to improve to land this.

10-year old with 12 career wins and 20 more placed efforts in 83 starts. Went close over this trip at Salisbury in June in Class 4 company but hasn't run as well since in lesser races. Eased another 3lb, losing sequence mounting up now however.

Both career wins (2-19) have come over C&D, three years apart. Scored in first-time blinkers in July on third start for this trainer, though faded to be last of five on next start here. Not the easiest to put faith in.

Mare with fair 8-54 strike-rate in career so far, though nothing since May 2018 and hasn't always shown her best over this C&D. Form in 2019 isn't inspiring, though she had excuses last month at Bath.

Nine-race maiden, filly mostly well held so far in small-field affairs. Runner-up at Bath over 5f on quick ground last time, runs from same mark here.

Resumed winning ways to score his third victory of the year and first overall on turf at Goodwood last time month (made all), and only found one too good under penalty at Catterick since. Is 2lb well-in on these terms and on the shortlist.

Mare is already a three-time C&D winner and has rarely run a bad race in eight starts here. Hit and miss in 2019 so far, though typically denied short-head in one visit to this venue. Commands plenty respect.

Well below form in handicaps last two starts; very much undone by the drop to 7f (easily outpaced) on his latest outing. Hard to fathom him turning things around in first crack at sprinting.

Mare has plenty speed but, for all that she has finished second three times this season over this trip; she hasn't managed a win since 2017. Passed up good chance at Bath in July and well held since.

Admirable veteran whose powers are on the wane at 11-years-old seemingly. Winner over the trip last summer at Ffos Las, but yet to get competitive in four 2019 turf runs.

Seven-race maiden, left previous form well behind when just giving best to re-opposing Secret Potion over C&D three weeks ago; showing good appetite for the battle. Will have claims again if repeating that effort and should have scope to do so.

Betting

Forecast

Secret Potion (10/3), Pettochside (4/1), Atty's Edge (11/2), Red Stripes (11/2), Kodiak Attack (8/1), Bluebell Time (11/1), David's Beauty (16/1), Test Valley (16/1), Compton Poppy (16/1), Edged Out (16/1), Perfect Charm (22/1), Silverrica (33/1), Swendab (66/1)

Verdict

Kodiak Attack is bidding for a hat-trick here having followed up a Lingfield maiden win by landing a handicap at Bath. That wasn't the strongest race however and his 6lb penalty asks a tough question here. The other last time out winner is Secret Potion, who has something to prove to win on these terms. Atty's Edge wasn't far behind him that day and makes some appeal despite being 2lb wrong but the in-form RED STRIPES is taken to make it two wins in three starts having just failed to defy a penalty at Catterick nine days ago. He won't be hanging around and has favourable terms now.
  1. Red Stripes
  2. Kodiak Attack
  3. Atty's Edge
