Sole win in 16 career starts came when making all over 1m4½f here (heavy) in May; inconsistent lately; has scope despite top-weight if able to reproduce the form of his staying on second to Scofflaw here (1m2½f, good to soft) in August.

Course form figures of 211; always towards the fore when winning by a neck over 2m here (good) four weeks ago - Gabrial The One fourth (beaten 2L); a subsequent 3lb rise looks to be perfectly fair; handles soft; contender.

3lb higher than when beating the dual purpose mare Harmonise (stablemate Marengo third) by 1½L at Chepstow (1m4f, good to soft) in August; beaten 7-2f on his sole previous visit to Chester (1m4½f).

14 of his 17 career starts have come at this track (runner-up on four occasions); 2lb higher than when beating Never Do Nothing by ¾L over 1m4½f here (good) in May; ought to make his presence felt in some shape or form.

Drew well clear inside the final furlong when winning in desperate conditions at Carlisle (1m3f, heavy) in May; rather underwhelming from elevated handicap marks since; couldn't be totally discounted now back to his last winning perch.

Failed to win on the Flat for George Baker (0-7); transformed over hurdles by local trainer Oliver Greenall (22111) earning a rating of 130 in that discipline courtesy of wins at Newcastle, Huntingdon and Bangor; interesting despite 155-day absence.

Won here last September (1m6½f), following up a previous Salisbury success; badly out of form since being caught close home by Eddystone Rock here (1m5½f, good) in May; now sits 6lb lower needing a revival - isn't beyond the realms of possibility.

Soft/heavy ground winner (1m-1m4f); in woeful form this season (0-4), finishing a tailed-off last of ten to Percy Prosecco at Catterick (1m4f, soft) six weeks ago; is difficult to muster any enthusiasm for.

Pour Moi gelding; runner-up on all three career starts (1m-1m4f), including when beaten 4L by the promising Ahorsewithnoname in a Catterick novice (1m4f, soft); of definite interest with Gerald Mosse booked for handicap debut; should stay 1m6f.

Dual course winner; 3lb lower than when finishing second to Super Kid here (1m4½f, soft) in June; third to stablemate Ascot Day (trainer also saddles Borak) at Chepstow three starts back; market helpful in assessing the Llewellyn pecking order.

2014 Northumberland Plate winner; snapped a barren spell when scoring at Ripon (2m, good to soft) in June, adding a further success here (2m, good to firm) in July; has gone slightly off the boil again latterly; others stronger.

Progressive and consistent since introduced to turf action in April (3312251); stays, clashing with well-treated rivals when twice second at Nottingham (1m6f-2m) mid-summer; 6lb rise for an easy Class 6 Carlisle success (1m6f, good to soft).

Short odds winner of a weak Newcastle maiden (1m4f) in March; placed (25-1) over 1m4½f here in May; absent for 108 days since toiling behind the then thriving Moon King over this trip at Haydock (heavy) in June; gelded.

Betting

Forecast

Wolf Prince (4/1), Lucky Lover Boy (11/2), Well Funded (6/1), Overhaugh Street (6/1), Buriram (7/1), Gabrial The One (7/1), Seeusoon (9/1), Ravenous (14/1), Marengo (16/1), Ascot Day (20/1), Heart Of Soul (20/1), Borak (20/1), Angel Gabrial (33/1), Rayna's World (50/1)

Verdict

The curtain falls on the 2019 season at Chester with a fascinating stayers handicap. The three-year-old filly Well Funded has been the model of consistency since introduced to turf action, and she hacked over her rivals in a Class 6 Carlisle romp. Wolf Prince merits attention on handicap debut in the hands of the experienced French rider Gerald Mosse. This Pour Moi gelding played second fiddle to the promising Ahorsewithnoname in a Catterick novice six weeks ago. Meanwhile, the winning hurdler Lucky Lover Boy could prove well-handicapped on Flat debut for Oliver Greenall. However, with course form figures of 211, it is OVERHAUGH STREET who gets the verdict.
