6/4
Confirmed her liking for Bath with comprehensive win there last week and escapes a penalty as it was an apprentice race. Due to race off a 6lb higher mark from Saturday so chance here is obvious.

9/1
Failed to stay 7f at Leicester and similar level of form in pair of subsequent runs at this trip. More needed to get off the mark though first time blinkers may help in that respect.

Front runner so missing the break at Kempton last week was always going to prove a problem. Best form needs improving on and regular rider seeking first career win.

Runner up three times but wasn't progressing for Jamie Osborne and no better on debut for current yard after been sold for £12,500. Bit to prove now.

Won at Yarmouth a year ago but has failed to beat a rival in seven of his eight runs since and on current form impossible to make a case for.

Spurned a good opportunity at Windsor but made all to got off the mark in maiden at Bath last month and may have more to offer from rails draw for in-form yard.

Over 2L ahead of Molly's Game when third in first time cheek pieces at Lingfield on last run. Could have more to offer but stable appear to hold more obvious claims with the top weight.

14/1
Hadn't shown a great deal in trio of maidens and then ran poorly over 7f on handicap debut at Epsom. Possible that track didn't suit and may be happier now down in trip, but something to prove for now.

Second at Wolverhampton in April but that form hasn't been repeated in three efforts since and not hard to look elsewhere as she comes back after a break.

Forecasts

Devils Roc (6/4), Grisons (4/1), Elzaam's Dream (6/1), Mrs Worthington (13/2), Ricochet (7/1), Soldier's Son (8/1), Molly's Game (9/1), Geneva Spur (14/1), Wye Bother (50/1), Spring Holly (50/1), Autumn Splendour (66/1)

Verdict

This doesn't look any harder than the Bath contest DEVILS ROC took last week and a repeat effort should suffice. Grisons landed a weak maiden last time but if able to build on that should prove a threat, while if the first time blinkers have the desired effect, Molly's Game can hit the frame.
  1. Devils Roc
  2. Grisons
