Seven-time winner including twice this season as reliable as they come and has a touch of class as his second and thirds to very useful Dakota Gold in Listed races the last twice show. Tough ask off top-weight but he is sure to give it a good go.

A little unfortunate not to win a big pot this season having never been worse than fifth in eight starts all in ultra-competitive 6f-7f handicaps. Handicapper always has the upper hand but every chance he makes the frame.

Only won one race but often threatened in big field handicaps and fallen to career-low mark now after disappointing in a first-time visor in the Ayr Gold Cup. That's removed now and he is respected for last year's winning yard.

C&D winner this season finished third in valuable Curragh handicap two back and Ayr Gold Cup latest. Handicapper keeps up the pressure but he's a player barring significant rain.

In the form of his life since wind surgery in the off-season, winning three of his six outings. Disappointed in Stewards Cup when last seen but that on ground too fast so back with juice underfoot he could resume progress.

Soft ground Ripon winner in August had a host of these behind when running another cracker to be second in the Ayr Gold Cup latest. Highest mark for two years his reward but foolish to ignore his big-field prowess.

Unusual that this prolific sort is winless in 2019. Well beaten in Ayr Gold Cup and although ran well enough since others appeal as more likely at this stage.

Dual winner consistent enough on the whole but comes here on the back of a long trip to South Korea where he struggled in last of 14 runners and hard to think that's an ideal preparation.

Versatile eight-time winner successful again at Ayr latest over 7f on soft ground. Likable sort who is always respected but nagging doubt that 6f on flat track may prove sharp enough.

Betting

Forecast

Aplomb (7/1), Hey Jonesy (8/1), Air Raid (9/1), Louie de Palma (10/1), Get Knotted (10/1), Danzeno (12/1), Lahore (12/1), Alaadel (12/1), Summerghand (12/1), Gulliver (16/1), Hyperfocus (16/1), Intisaab (16/1), Bernardo O'Reilly (20/1), Growl (20/1), Ice Age (25/1), Gunmetal (25/1), Cold Stare (25/1), Soldier's Minute (33/1), Staxton (33/1), Pass The Vino (33/1), Lancelot Du Lac (50/1), George Bowen (50/1)

Verdict

In a wide-open contest classy top-weight DANZENO is taken to deservedly get back to winning ways and he looks an excellent each-way bet at least with his consistency very hard to fault. If there is one who could be well ahead of the handicapper it is ante-post favourite Aplomb and he has to be respected. Growl had nearly half the field behind latest when second in the Ayr Gold Cup.
