6/1

Mixed form this year but his two best recent performances have come here over 6f. Tackles this specialist trip for the first time and there are probably better options to be found.

20/1

Dual AW winner for Marco Botti who was a turf winner in Ireland last year. Has been sidelined for a year and has undergone wind surgery in the interim. Represents a shrewd trainer and would have to be respected if the market suggests he's ready.

4/1

Arrives in better shape than most and should face little competition for the lead. This will be just his second AW start but he ran to form here as a juvenile and he has to be considered a leading contender.

7/1

Landed valuable prizes at Newmarket and Leopardstown last year which did little for his 2019 handicap mark. Some desperate performances have seen him drop dramatically in the weights without offering any encouragement he is ready to bounce back.

9/2

AW record reads 1-14 and he comes here on a career high mark having romped home in a weak race at Yarmouth in August. Found trouble last time but looked held at the time and others are preferred.

5/1

Has won two better class races over C&D and arrives in decent form having finished a good second at Sandown. Dropped in class and one of the main players in an uncompetitive race.

4/1

Effective from 6f-1m and all four wins have been on Tapeta. Looks a few pounds less effective on Polytrack so the cheekpieces need to unlock some improvement.

A 3-48 career record tells it's own story but he has run some good races in defeat during the spring and summer. Form has dipped more recently and there are more attractive options to be found.

Betting

Forecast

Martineo (4/1), Sparklealot (4/1), Envisaging (9/2), Boy In The Bar (5/1), Unabated (6/1), Zap (7/1), Atletico (8/1), Omran (20/1)

Verdict

Sparklealot and BOY IN THE BAR ran better than the rest of their rivals last time with the selection getting the vote given his C&D record and an attractive looking mark. Omran would enter calculations given market support and Unabated seems to like it here. In contrast Martineo is better suited to Tapeta, whilst Atletico, Envisaging and Zap are proving hard to catch right.
