Not sold in September, but had changed hands since nonetheless and makes debut for this trainer here. In good form when last seen over hurdles for Dan Skelton, and has each-way claims from this mark back on the Flat.

Trip and ground ideal for this multiple winner, who is well handicapped on his last win, which came from 8lb higher at York 12-months ago. Stable quiet at present, which is a concern, but interesting if supported.

Mudlark and former Godolphin-owned gelding who easily won a maiden way back in 2014, but has not seen much action since. Well held on both starts for this trainer, and hard to fancy on that evidence.

Has won over 1m4f on soft, so stiff 1m2f should suit. Thereabouts from similar marks on his last two starts, so can't be ruled out.

Won comfortably at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) last time out. Up 4lb for that, but previous record from similar marks suggest he will need to find more to follow-up. Even so, has place claims at the least.

Dual 1m winner, including here on good to soft last year, when 3lb lower. 5lb better off here with Rake's Progress, who lowered his colours when favourite at Nottingham last time. Has claims again on these revised terms.

All three of his wins were at Ayr (1m2f) on a sound/fast surface, though he does also act on soft. Has proved very competitive from this mark recently. Place claims again, but more needed for a first win outside Scotland.

Won over Doncaster's straight 1m (good) in May, when just 1lb lower. Handles soft ground, but more miss than hit since wind surgery in the summer, so has a bit to prove.

Returns to turf in good form from the All Weather, having won and then run well again at Newcastle recently (1m4½f). Acts on soft ground, but not sure drop back to this trip is what he wants.

8-31 on turf, including over C&D and also here over 1m4f on soft. 2lb higher than his most recent win. More needed from this mark, but enters calculations.

Placed in four of his eight starts, but yet to win. Acts on good to soft, but unraced on softer. Stays 1m4½f. Returns to handicapping in good form, but still needs to find improvement to defy this mark.

4-25, including on soft and also over this trip. 3lb higher than his last win at Doncaster in August. Competitive since, but another who needs to pull out more to win again.

1m winner (good to soft) when trained in France. Held in all six starts for this trainer. Not certain to see out this longer trip, especially on this stiff track, but on a competitive mark if he does.

Came good at the eighth attempt at Ayr (1m, good) last time. Up 3lb for that. Bit to prove still on soft ground and over this trip, but entitled to respect.

Betting

Forecast

Sod's Law (9/2), Bo Samraan (6/1), Awake My Soul (7/1), Rake's Progress (7/1), Lopes Dancer (8/1), Glasses Up (8/1), Power Player (12/1), Regal Mirage (14/1), Medalla De Oro (14/1), Frankelio (16/1), Delph Crescent (16/1), Archaeology (25/1), Edgar Allan Poe (25/1), Illustrissime (50/1), Flight Officer (66/1)

Verdict

Illustrissime could go well now back in this code, while Medalla De Oro and Rake's Progress are others for whom cases can be made. Course specialist Regal Mirage can't be ignored, with Bo Samraan, Delph Crescent and Power Player others with a squeak. However, preference is for SOD'S LAW, who can turn the tables on Rake's Progress and win again on these terms.
  1. Sod's Law
