4/1

Won a Listed race over this distance at York earlier this season. Finished fifth of 11 in the Nunthorpe (5f) at that same track. Was last of three runner on his latest start at Leicester (5f), 2L behind Tarboosh. One to consider.

Experienced gelding who has prevailed over this C&D. His last success came at Chester (5f) back in May. He was 11th of 14 in the Ayr Gold Cup (6f) on his latest appearance. This assignment is easier but others are preferred.

Scored over this distance at Beverley two starts back where he picked up strongly in the closing stages to get up by 1½L. He was denied by just a nose on his follow up attempt at Leicester (5f) in a three runner field. In good form. Big player.

Came close to his first win of the year when he was second of eight at Ripon (5f) two runs ago. He was seventh of 22 at York (5f) on his most recent attempt. Both of his career wins have come at this trip but others appeal more here.

Opened his campaign up with a C&D success on heavy ground. Was successful at Nottingham (5f) two runs ago, while he was then third of five last time at Beverley (5f) in the race which was won by Tarboosh. One for the shortlist.

Betting

Forecast

Tarboosh (10/11), Copper Knight (4/1), Kyllang Rock (9/2), Soldier's Minute (7/1), Merhoob (9/1), Broken Spear (14/1)

Verdict

TARBOOSH has run really well on his last two starts at this distance. He was very unlucky not to add back-to-back successes last time at Leicester as he went down by just a nose. He can gain compensation for that near miss here. Copper Knight did not fare too badly against some of the best sprinters in Europe in the Nunthorpe so has to be fancied to be in the mix here but he may be unable to reverse his form with Tarboosh, while Kyllang Rock is a C&D winner and should be fighting it out at the finish once again.
  1. Tarboosh
