14/1
Dual bumper winner. Went close in Ripon novice event (1m4f, good to soft) last time. Yet to race on ground this soft, but looks a contender if acting on it.

Has shown little in bumpers and can't be recommended on switching to this code.

7/2
Yet to win, but had not been beaten by more than 3¼L on any of his six starts. Has it to prove on soft ground, but if handling it, he should be very competitive once again.

66/1
3-1 on debut at Bath (1m3½f, firm) last month, so a 35L defeat into second was not an ideal effort. Visor worn there is now discarded, and dam won on heavy, so he may be able to improve for the switch to these conditions.

Placed three times last year for Ralph Beckett, but well held in all four starts for this trainer, so plenty to prove.

100/1
Cost £7,000 at three. Second foal of an unraced half-sister to Group 1 winner Romantica (1m2f) and Listed winner Ideal World. Stable 0-4 with 3yos this year. Best watched on debut.

4/1
Placed on all five starts but remains a maiden. Handles soft, and stays 1m5½f, which is no bad thing on this stiff circuit. Visor now goes on, and if that sharpens his focus, it might just do the trick.

King Power17
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-0| J: S De Sousa| T: A M Balding| OR:  77
11/8
Has come back from a mid-season break in good form, including when beaten less than 2L on soft at Ascot (1m4f) last time, but questions have been raised over her stomach for a battle, which remains a concern until we see her win.

Lady Scatterley12
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-0| J: D Allan| T: T D Easterby| OR:  67
12/1
0-10. Has gone close several times, including here over 1m2f earlier in the season, in a maiden handicap. Sees out this trip, but unlikely to break her duck on these terms.

9/1
Runner-up twice on AW surfaces at this sort of trip. Unproven on soft so has to prove she acts on it, and needs improvement on these terms.

Forecasts

King Power (11/8), Dante's View (7/2), Swift Wing (4/1), Vibrance (9/1), Lady Scatterley (12/1), Rory And Me (14/1), Fox Fearless (20/1), Kall To Alms (33/1), Education (66/1), Hart Fell (100/1), Montelimar (200/1)

Plenty of questions to be answered here. Rory And Me may look short of class on paper, but his stamina should come into play here and if there is to be an upset if could be with him. However, SWIFT WING also ticks the stamina box, and he is taken to benefit from the fitting of a visor and break his duck. Dante's View and King Power should again be able to challenge for some prize money.
