7/1

Inconsistent six-year-old who won at Chelmsford (5f, Polytrack) three starts ago off 3lb lower. Narrowly touched off at Ascot (5f, good to firm) 11 days ago in a competitive contest but is back up in grade here and is hard to catch right.

Listed-placed juvenile who looked set for a good season when beaten ¾L in a 5f Listed race at Bath on Good Friday. Pulled up next time at Ayr and then returned after two months off to beat just one rival at Sandown (5f, good to firm) 18 days ago.

7/2

Went up 7lb for winning a valuable 5f handicap at Musselburgh back in April and subsequently found life difficult until the handicapper relented on his last two runs at Doncaster and Sandown. Was unlucky last time and a player if in the same form.

4/1

Struggled to find his form since joining this yard until making all at Musselburgh (5f, good to soft) three weeks ago. Had dropped in the weights prior to that and is fairly handicapped on his 2017/2018 form if putting his best foot forward.

Landed a double over C&D (good to firm) and at Chelmsford (6f, Polytrack) seven weeks ago. Not beaten far in a competitive event at Ascot (behind Blue De Vega) recently but up in grade again and a personal best required.

59-1OR: 82D
7/2

Ran three good races in eleven days during July, including winning at Windsor (5f, good to firm). Off the boil since then in two runs, beaten 6½L at Doncaster a week ago and, despite being just 1lb above his last win, needs to return to form.

11/2

Now a veteran but useful in his prime and showed some old ability after a generally quiet season on his last two runs, including when second at Doncaster (5f, good to firm) last week. Last seven wins all off higher marks than this so not ruled out.

Hasn't won for 16 months but is back off his last winning mark. Yard are now in better form than for most of this season but his recent defeats in easier races than this doesn't inspire a great deal of confidence.

Betting

Forecast

Daschas (7/2), Saaheq (7/2), Holmeswood (4/1), Duke Of Firenze (5/1), Thegreatestshowman (11/2), Line Of Reason (11/2), Blue De Vega (7/1), Zamjar (14/1), Heartwarming (20/1)

Verdict

Some familiar names line-up for this and it looks a good opportunity for SAAHEQ to return to the winners' enclosure. Back to form on his last two starts, he was unlucky at Sandown recently and can make amends. Holmeswood is still very well handicapped on his best form from 2017 and 2018 and got back into the groove at Musselburgh recently whilst Duke Of Firenze ran well in a Listed race at Doncaster last week and will find this a little easier.
