12/1

Triple course winner (7f/1m) who bounced back to form with victory here last time (7f) six weeks ago. Up 4lbs but has never won off a mark this high and whilst he has solid claims, that rise in the weights might be enough to prevent a follow-up.

Placed on three occasions during 2018 (6f-1m3f); well beaten on both Flat starts in 2019, most recently at Southwell (1m4f, Fibresand) three weeks ago. This is his second run after a wind operation but still hard to gauge his optimum trip.

Only 2-26 on the AW overall but did win over C&D dropped to Class 7 company two weeks ago. Won off this revised mark in May 2018 and is shortlisted again under conditions he handles well.

Still 6lb above his only win in May 2018 at Hamilton (1m, good to firm) after narrow defeats on his last four outings. Blinkers now replace cheekpieces in an effort to eke a little more and has place claims once more.

Generally consistent at a moderate level and been running fairly of late with placed efforts at Wolverhampton (both 7f). Best efforts have generally been over shorter and she may find it difficult to break her duck at the 27th attempt.

7/5

Had dropped 14lb prior to his last two runs (both C&D); finished third to Rebel State firstly before winning by 1¼L just four days ago. Turns out quickly with a 5lb penalty but is still fairly handicapped on his best form and a bold bid likely.

A maiden after 14 Flat starts (7f-1m7f) and the switch to hurdles didn't offer any more with a 42L defeat at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) 19 days ago. Markedly back in trip here, it's hard to be confident about his chances.

No worthwhile form since finishing 6½L fourth to Alfred Richardson over C&D in October 2018; is undeniably well-handicapped (12lb below his last winning mark); that said, couldn't be recommended with any degree of confidence.

Is 1lb higher than his last win and had been completely out of form in first three starts since joining this stable. Offered a little more, however, when fifth of 12 at Wolverhampton (1m½f, Tapeta) nine 'days ago but will need to build on that.

Landed two 6f races at Carlisle in July but struggled after that off revised mark. Gradually falling back to more reasonable rating and fair second at Musselburgh last month. Stamina concerns for this trip and was well beaten here over 6f on Monday.

A maiden after eight Flat starts, he was weakened tamely on hurdling debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) 19 days ago. Had shaped as though a longer trip would suit in previous Flat efforts so this drop back to 1m has to be of concern.

40/1

Four time turf winner who has not matched his best in eight AW outings. Three poor efforts at Musselburgh when last seen in August and although he's 8lb lower on the AW, hard to see her getting off the mark on Tapeta.

Forecast

Proceeding (7/5), Troop (10/3), Rebel State (10/1), Sumner Beach (10/1), Spark Of War (12/1), Lukoutoldmakezebak (12/1), Dixieland (14/1), Ritchie Star (22/1), Puchita (25/1), Tarnhelm (33/1), Bunker Hill Lad (33/1), Lucky Violet (40/1), Amood (40/1), It's Never Enough (40/1)

Verdict

Despite finishing third to Rebel State two starts ago, PROCEEDING has won over C&D since and is still fairly handicapped on his best with Luke Morris retaining the ride. The aforementioned Rebel State can't be dismissed after his recent efforts but may find this higher mark tough whilst Troop has run several good races in defeat in recent months and is likely to be thereabouts once again.
