Last win came at Kempton in February but looks to have taken a backwards step recently. Latest 12L ninth at Kempton (1m) leaves a bit to find, even off lower turf mark.

Had been knocking at the door recently and gained deserved success at Catterick (7f) last week. 6lb rise in the weights seems harsh but respected nonetheless.

Had looked out of sorts but fall in the handicap resulted in a change in fortunes with fourth at Hamilton (1m4f) followed by good third in 1m4f Thirsk handicap last time out. Considered but could find trip on the sharp side.

Ripon winner in July but found wanting off current mark recently, including 4L fifth at Doncaster (1m) on latest start. Of interest when back down in the weights.

In solid form last season, culminating with game success in 7f Redcar handicap in October. Off since so expected to come on for the run no matter what but not one to be dismissed.

Four race maiden who has failed to land a blow in each start. 5L seventh on handicap debut at Musselburgh (7f) in April. Entitled to do better bust has absence to contend with. Best watched.

Last win came in June 2018 and struggled to land a blow lately including 13th of 17 at Haydock (1m, soft) last time out. Others make more appeal.

Bounced right back to form after some inconclusive efforts with game victory in 1m1f Musselburgh handicap in late August. 5lb higher for this race but represents top connections.

Thrice-raced maiden and went backwards on his last two starts including 13L sixth in 1m Newmarket novice contest in June. Given a break and gelded since but given a really likeable mark for handicap debut.

Last win came at Southwell in March but has been hitting the crossbar recently including 1L second at Carlisle (1m) last time out. Typically runs well of this mark. Solid claims.

best effort this season so far came when fourth at Chester on penultimate start but failed to back that up with 10L defeat at Beverley (1m) last time out. More needed against some in-form rivals.

C&D winner here in March and last eight runs have come at this track. Generally regressed in lesser company, including 8L defeat latest so has plenty of work to do in this company.

Narrow winner over 7f at this track on penultimate start and wasn't disgraced when fourth at this venue again in August. Yet to prove he stays a mile however but place claims at best.

Hamilton winner in June but starting to look exposed at lesser levels including fifth in class 6 Musselburgh handicap (1m) on latest start. Makes limited appeal on paper.

Betting

Forecast

Bardo Contiguo (6/1), Rampant Lion (6/1), Equidae (6/1), Vive La Difference (13/2), Ventura Royal (8/1), Mischief Managed (9/1), Employer (10/1), Ascot Week (14/1), Chinese Spirit (14/1), Coviglia (18/1), Woodside Wonder (18/1), Pudding Chare (28/1), Silver Dust (33/1), Roaring Forties (50/1)

Verdict

EQUIDAE has been knocking on the door for some time now and showed signs that some more progression is in him with his narrow defeat last time out. He looks dangerously poised on his mark and may be a step ahead of the handicapper. Ventura Royal has run well over further recently and the drop in trip could aid his hefty hike in the weights, while it will be interesting how Mischief Managed runs on his comeback and could vie for the places with Bardo Contiguo if the gelding operation has worked its magic.
