9/2

Dual course winner, including over this trip (June 2018); 4lb higher than when beating Archie Perkins by 1¼L at Beverley (1m2f, good to soft) in August; came up short when competing in a Class 3 here subsequently; trainer saddles three runners.

Class 2 C&D winner (good) from a mark of 95 in May 2018; relatively highly tried this season, but also a little underwhelming; the handicapper is giving him every chance (easing); stablemate of Gossip Column and Central City.

Has enjoyed a positive 3yo season, rattling off a hat-trick of 1m wins during May and June (Class 3-5); placed on each of his last two starts (at Pontefract and Carlisle); a career best is required on first attempt at 1m2f; soft ground is fine.

Career Chester form figures read 1712; 5lb higher than when beating the Ian Williams-trained Heart Of Soul by an emphatic 2½L over C&D in August (Class 4, good to soft); narrowly beaten by today's rival Involved subsequently; 3lb better off.

7/2

Lightly-raced (just six starts); gelded prior to making a winning turf debut over C&D a fortnight ago, beating today's rival Scofflaw by ¾L; 5lb higher (3lb worse off); should strip fitter for that run, and can confirm those placings.

Made a winning return to turf action at Doncaster (1m2f, good) in March; mixed fortunes since; going on at the finish (from rear) when 6½L seventh of 13 to today's rivals Involved and Scofflaw over C&D latest; one of three for Ian Williams.

Six-race maiden; runner-up at Beverley (1m2f maiden) in June for Sir Michael Stoute; 0-2 since joining Phil Kirby for £20,000; steadily easing in the weights, yet is considered an unlikely candidate.

Betting

Forecast

Restorer (11/4), Involved (7/2), Scofflaw (4/1), Gossip Column (9/2), Global Gift (9/2), Fennaan (10/1), Central City (16/1), Madeeh (33/1)

Verdict

Ian Williams saddles three runners with Gossip Column and Restorer carrying the silks of the flamboyant Dr Marwan Koukash, while his other runner Central City kept on from the rear when finishing seventh of 13 to the re-opposing INVOLVED and Scofflaw over C&D two weeks ago. Strictly speaking on weights and measures Scofflaw should reverse placings with the selection (3lb better off for ¾L), but there are reasons for Daniel Kubler to be hopeful. His four-year-old Havana Gold gelding remains lightly-raced and open to further improvement when you consider that was his first competitive start for six months (and his turf debut).
