Has made an immediate impact with two wins from four starts. Proved impressive on Newcastle handicap debut running on strongly and this extra furlong is the logical next step. Won in a decent time and still well handicapped off 6lb higher.

Yet to add to early success last year but has been running to a consistent standard of late in stronger company. Down in grade and trip is fine. Can be competitive once again.

Won over this C&D for William Jarvis back in March but has really struggled in three handicap outings so far, including twice for this yard.

Progressive AW performer in late 2018 but has really lost his way in latest three starts following a break and overall nowhere near his juvenile form this year. Remains best watched.

Yet to place in five AW starts but has gone well here previously. Just 1lb higher than this year's back-to-back Beverley wins and while he's capable of being involved, he can be inconsistent.

His form looks inconsistent of late on paper but his poor runs can be attributed to soft ground. Went close in a decent race over this C&D in July and expected to bounce back to his best.

Showed nice improvement in his first three starts before a 201-day absence and a tailed off effort on heavy ground. His early handicap mark still looks tough but he could fare better.

Has shown consistent form on turf while his one AW start at Kempton was well below par. Returns from wind surgery and the drop in trip is a plus. Possible contender if taking to the surface.

Won at Leicester in August and in good form of late with a solid placed effort at Kempton latest. Up another 2lb but perfectly capable of being competitive once again.

Won this race last year off 2lb higher on final start for previous yard. Didn't get a clear run here last time and with a bit more luck he's capable of making his presence felt in ideal conditions.

12-race maiden has proved inconsistent so far but raced close to his best when third over this C&D two starts back. Is on a good mark and could be involved if putting his best foot forwards.

Betting

Forecast

Futuristic (8/11), Awa Bomba (4/1), Swiss Knight (5/1), Self Assessment (8/1), Punjab Mail (11/1), Final Frontier (12/1), Swiss Cheer (20/1), Full Intention (20/1), Keepup Kevin (20/1), Lestrade (25/1), Penrhos (25/1), Shining Armor (28/1)

Verdict

An open first division of a race that features plenty of chances but it's quite possible the lightly-raced FUTURISTIC can continue a trend which has seen him progress significantly with each run and improve away from his rivals. Swiss Knight is proving reliable and gets a welcome drop in class while Self Assessment can be forgiven his latest effort and is interesting back at a C&D which is much more suitable.
