Listed winner as a juvenile and while he disappointed throughout his three-year-old campaign, he got back on track with a win at Redcar in June. His efforts since suggest he's not overly well handicapped from this mark; beaten favourite last time.

Disappointed when upped in class at Ascot last week but had been running well prior to that at a similar level to this, winning a Newmarket handicap (7f, good-to-firm). Useful apprentice has ridden him to win before and can claim 3lb here.

Won a decent race over this trip at Newbury last month but probably more effective over 1m and the soft ground brought her stamina into play that day. Career high mark to cope with and others look more appealing from a betting perspective.

Won each of his first three starts but he's gone backwards following a promising reappearance at York in May. Back on his last winning mark at least and first-time visor could eke out some improvement; interesting contender.

Has a fantastic record of eight wins from 23 starts on turf and he's won four times already this season. Put in a rare poor performance at Carlisle last time out but rates as the type to bounce back; wide draw far from ideal at this trip though.

Made it four wins from 13 starts last time out at Redcar and while he's yet to win from a handicap mark this high, having been put up 2lb, the form of his latest success looks okay with the third winning since. Each-way player.

Tailed off when favouite at Haydock last time out on heavy ground but had won two of his previous three starts and heavy ground a potential excuse for both of those losses. Yard arrive in good form and he may be capable of better yet.

A winner on AW at Chantilly in November but hasn't managed to replicate that form since and he was well beaten from what would appear to be a stiff mark at Doncaster last month on UK debut. Yard do well with these types but may need more time.

Maiden winner at Gowran Park in August 2018 but hasn't built on a promise reappearance at Naas in four subsequent starts this year. Step up in trip needs to unlock a fair amount of improvement.

Tailed off in three starts this year and signs he hasn't trained on following a promising two-year-old campaign. Starts out for new yard but hard to fancy, despite the handicapper's leniency.

Both wins have come on good to firm ground, most recently a 7f Class 5 handicap at Carlisle in May. Well beaten in five runs since though and still above his last winning handicap mark.

Betting

Forecast

Giga White (9/2), Aljady (5/1), Raydiance (11/2), Pattie (11/2), Wahoo (11/2), Young Fire (11/2), Wise Counsel (7/1), Redarna (11/1), Get Knotted (11/1), Ventura Ocean (14/1), Howzer Black (18/1), Drogon (25/1), Nordic Fire (33/1)

Verdict

A tricky contest but it might be worth taking a chance on WAHOO who arrives in form having stayed on gamely for his Redcar success last time out and he should remain competitive from a 2lb higher handicap mark. Aljady is another of interest in first-time headgear and back on his last winning handicap. Wise Counsel represents a yard in form and can't be ruled out despite his inconvenient draw (12).
