Holding his form and likes Bath, so a lot in his favour; won a five-runner handicap over 2m1f here at the start of August and backed it up with a win at Chepstow (extended 2m) next time. Respectable third on the AW latest and still more to offer.

Consistent and no doubts about the suitability of the trip; also acts well at this course as well, so another with plenty in his favour. He's been frustrating to follow lately but his commendable record of making the frame is an asset. Place claims.

Won over 1m5f here in June (Singing The Blues less than a length back in third and now 2lb better off) but held off this mark latest. Debuts for a new yard today; the betting market can guide as to whether the move has freshened him up.

Won an apprentices race here in late August (2m1f, good to firm) and wasn't beaten far latest, so respected. However, this is a tougher assignment and he faces no easy task at the weights, even though the rider's claims helps even things out.

Broke a long losing sequence with a hard fought win over an extended 2m here last time out; still reasonably competitive despite a 4lb higher mark. Third in this race in 2018 and feasible she can make the frame again.

Held his form well since winning over C&D last month but creeping up the weights and it will be tougher to make the running in this company. Needs a personal best.

Not much to find with a few of these and encouraging that he ran well when in visor last time out. Yet to win over this trip but suited by the ground and could be thereabouts if a few of the others underperform.

Won over an extended 1m3f last September but has a bit to find with Charlie D judging by their encounter here last month. Confidence boosted by winning a claimer since but still needs more. First time visor can help. (Won on this card last year.)

Usually runs well here but faces a few old rivals who have already taken her measure In recent times. Good effort when second over C&D last time but more needed even though she's only 1lb higher in the weights.

Has a good record at this course and dug deep to win here last time out; he'd previously coped well against the likes of Cotton Club and Rosie Royal but this looks a stern challenge on these unfavorable terms. (Out of the weights.)

In good form over hurdles earlier in the summer and ran well when close up behind Filament Of Gold last time out; but she's 5lb wrong at the weights today and others make much more appeal on these terms.

Not stood much racing but has proved to be capable at low level; had Filament Of Gold behind in second when winning over 1m5f here in July but this is a big ask from 7lb out of the handicap.

Still a maiden after 25 previous starts and not hard to overlook given that she was a 40/1 shot when third behind Filament Of Gold and Kismet 11 days ago. Hard to envisage her being good enough to reverse the placings from so far out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Charlie D (10/3), Singing The Blues (9/2), Hope Is High (9/2), Victoriano (11/2), Sufi (9/1), Cotton Club (12/1), Gemini (12/1), Rosie Royale (16/1), The Detainee (18/1), Sinndarella (20/1), Filament Of Gold (25/1), Street Jester (40/1), Khismet (50/1), Lady Natasha (66/1)

Verdict

Top weight might not be enough to stop CHARLIE D whilst he's on his A-game and he's taken to expand on what has been a profitable little spell for the gelding. Gemini doesn't have much to find to reverse recent course form with the selection and might well appreciate the drop in trip today. The consistent Singing The Blues has place claims once more, as does Hope Is High, who races from a mark just 2lb above the mark she was on when she finished an admirable third in this race last year. Sufi and Cotton Club are others to monitor in the betting.
  1. Charlie D
  2. Gemini
  3. Singing The Blues
