49-12OR: 73D
9/4

Struggled to get his head in front since winning at Chepstow in May but has been very consistent at this sort of level. Went close here on his penultimate start under this rider and another bold effort looks assured from the same mark.

Won a similar race over a mile at Lingfield a year ago and also successful over 1m2f at Windsor back in July, so is respected on the pick of his efforts. He's faltered when tried over this trip before, though.

Showed a good attitude when winning here in May and shapes as if this trip is within his compass; back on a winning mark and dangerous to rule out now stamina comes into play again. One to consider.

16/1

Failed to win a race on the Flat during two spells with Richard Hannon and was never a factor on debut for his current yard at Goodwood earlier in the month. The first-time visor needs to bring a big improvement out of the gelding.

Finished last of five here earlier in the month but wasn't beaten far and might be worth an interest now he's been given more of a chance by the handicapper. His rider is doing well at present and the partnership shouldn't be underestimated.

4/1

Won as expected in a Class 6 handicap at this course in July but form has been mixed in three starts since. Needs to be forgiven a poor run at Chepstow last month but connections keep faith with the headgear; a betting check is advised.

Won on his final start last year but not been in the same form since returning after being gelded. The trip should be fine but any rain would be a help; also a bit to prove now headgear is tried for the first time.

Betting

Forecast

Carp Kid (9/4), Arctic Sea (4/1), Perfect Grace (4/1), Simbirsk (4/1), Last Enchantment (9/1), Beer With The Boys (10/1), Cheeky Rascal (16/1)

Verdict

CARP KID has the most consistent recent profile and could take the finale if he can better his recent course debut. The gelding only found one too good when he was run out of things over an extended 1m2f here last month but he can again set his own tempo this time and could be hard to get by if the extra distance brings more out of him. Last Enchantment would be dangerous to underestimate and is rated as threat this time around. Perfect Grace and Simbirsk also come into the reckoning on the pick of their efforts and they complete the shortlist. Arctic Sea is also feared but most of his winning form has been gained over shorter trips.
