89-7OR: 101D
20/1

An eight-time AW winner who seemingly saves his best form for Polytrack, though yet to win at this venue (second on three of his four course starts). Yet to win from a mark quite this high but has been running well in defeat lately; each-way claims.

Latest three wins have come on AW and not seen to best effect last time out at Lingfield when given too much to do. Probably still in form but has a bit to prove dropped back in trip here.

Enjoyed a prolific winter on AW in 2017/18 but yet to score for this yard and looks badly out of form on her recent AW efforts; wide draw not ideal and others make more appeal.

Won his maiden on AW at Lingfield but all subsequent wins have come on turf. Not the most reliable type but back on a workable handicap mark and showed signs of a return to form at Lingfield last time out.

All three wins have come over the minimum trip and wasn't beaten far over this distance when runner-up to re-opposing Royal Birth at Chelmsford two starts back. Respectable effort again at Newcastle last time out when third of 11; each-way player.

3/1

C&D winner who had been in good form prior to her win at Chelmsford last time out, doing well to make up plenty of ground in the closing stages. Has had her stalls issues in the past and perhaps a risky proposition on that basis.

10/1

Four-time C&D winner who bounced back to form in fine fashion here last week when winning a 12-runner Class 3 handicap from 2lb out of the weights. Carries a 4lb penalty but that's effectively only 2lb and he's won from higher marks before.

Gained a first win on AW at Southwell last time out. 6lb higher here though and needs to prove he's as effective both at this trip and on this surface.

66/1

All 13 of his wins have come over 5f or an extended 5f and he was well beaten on his return to AW last time. Hasn't won from a mark as high as this on AW since 2016 and opposable from the widest draw here.

38-2OR: 82D
7/1

Lost his maiden tag on AW at the start of the year and has been running well in defeat here no each of his last three starts. Perhaps too keen in the early stages last time out and did best of those who raced prominently; claims from the same mark.

Forecast

Lethal Lunch (3/1), Lady Dancealot (3/1), Harry's Bar (4/1), Benny And The Jets (7/1), Merhoob (7/1), Silent Echo (8/1), Tipperary Jack (8/1), Polybius (10/1), Tawny Port (16/1), Royal Birth (20/1), Rock On Baileys (33/1), Shamshon (66/1)

Verdict

BENNY AND THE JETS has been running well here in recent starts and he may be able to get his head back in front if settling better in the early stages. Merhoob gave the impression a return to form may be imminent last time out while Royal Birth and Tipperary Jack are two more for the shortlist.
