79-10OR: 82D
5/1

10-time winner including twice this season and showed capabilities off this mark latest when third but beaten just 1L at Leicester. Should make another bold bid in this open enough contest.

Entitled to come on for reappearance after a break at Chelmsford latest and is basically a very consistent sort when on song so could easily bounce back and go well.

9/4

Only won once but basically pretty consistent. Slightly disappointing at Chelmsford latest but still only beaten 4L. Be surprising if he isn't involved here where it matters.

Yet to add to his 25/1 debut win and for all he is less exposed than most patience is starting to wear thin now although his handicap continues to slide.

14/1

Won twice over 5f in June but below expectations twice since suggesting new handicap mark is beyond him. Still suspect he can do a little better here.

48-9OR: 67
9/2

Unplaced in three pretty strong contests to date and having just his fourth start at the end of his four-year-old season. Could be more to come now handicapping and market support would bolster confidence.

Five-time winner although not since 2017. Very poor effort at Kempton latest when a remote last and hard to fancy now.

10/1

Improvement last three; all over C&D. Running on second of 14 latest arguably the best of the bunch and on the back of that effort she has to be seriously considered seeking her maiden score.

Betting

Forecast

Zeyzoun (9/4), Dourado (7/2), Young Bernie (9/2), Swift Approval (5/1), Red Bravo (8/1), Poet's Magic (10/1), Global Destination (14/1), Arctic Flower (33/1)

Verdict

After three excellent efforts here of late today can be the day for POET'S MAGIC to get off the mark off bottom weight under Nicola Currie. Consistent sort Swift Approval is also sure to go close and Zeyzoun is another likely sort despite running below par latest.
  1. Poet's Magic
  2. Swift Approval
  3. Zeyzoun
