10/1
Has featured over hurdles on his last three starts, including when he was second of eight at Exeter (2m2½f). His form on the Flat was disappointing earlier this year. Blinkers are on for the first time. Others are preferred.

20/1
Is a four-time winner on the AW but his form this year has been way below his best. He could only finish eighth of 12 on his latest attempt at Wolverhampton (1m6f). Has been eased a further 3lb in the weights. Can't be discounted off this mark.

11/4
Has not won this year, however, he has come close on a number of occasions. He was fourth of 12 on his latest appearance at Wolverhampton (1m4f). He kept on well in the closing stages. Up in trip. One to consider.

20/1
Remains a maiden after 11 starts. His form since switching yards earlier this year has not improved. He had just one horse behind him last time in a nine runner field at Southwell (1m4f). Tongue-tie is on for the first time. Needs to improve.

7/1
Very capable gelding on this surface as he has recorded 10 wins throughout his career so far. He was eighth of 15 last time at this course (1m4f). Is stepping up in trip now where he is a leading contender from this mark.

4/1
Has not prevailed since he scored at this track over 1m4f in May 2017. Was sixth of seven on his latest appearance at Chelmsford (1m6f). Drops down 3lb in the weights so he merits some respect now.

20/1
Was successful over hurdles at Stratford (2m2½f) three starts ago. Has failed to beat a single runner on his last three runs on the Flat. Down to a new career low mark but he will need to improve.

40/1
Still looking for his first victory after seven outings on the track. He was sixth of seven in a novice hurdle here over 2m last month. Has shown very little on the Flat to date. Hard to make a case for.

10/1
His sole success came over this distance at Catterick in October 2017. Was fifth of 10 runners at Chelmsford (2m) on his last start. Visor is on for the first time. Has each-way claims here.

Saga Sprint106
Age: 6|  Weight: 10-5| J: Mr Alex Chadwick| T: J R Jenkins| OR:  45
20/1
Has raced just twice this year and she was much better on her latest appearance when she was fourth of 10 at Yarmouth (1m2f) as a 100/1 shot. Stepping up in trip now. One for the shortlist.

Is still looking for her first success after 14 starts. She has yet to hit the frame in five attempts this year, including when she was seventh of 10 on her latest outing at Brighton (1m4f). Needs to improve.

9/1
Dual-purpose gelding who is on a long losing stretch which goes back to March 2016 when he scored in a 2m chase at Taunton. Was seventh of 10 last time at Chelmsford (2m). Others appeal more.

6/1
Remains a maiden after five starts, although he has improved since joining handicap company. He was fifth of 16 runners at Chelmsford (1m2f) on his latest start. Blinkers are on for the first time. Worth consideration.

Forecast

Yasir (11/4), Earthly (4/1), Capricorn Prince (6/1), Attain (7/1), Guaracha (9/1), General Allenby (10/1), Punkawallah (10/1), Brilliant Riposte (10/1), Uncle Bernie (20/1), Finisher (20/1), Saga Sprint (20/1), Scottsdale (20/1), Just Right (25/1), Uae Soldier (40/1)

Verdict

ATTAIN has had a lot of success at this course throughout his career and he can return to winning ways here over this longer trip which he probably needs now at his age from what is a lenient mark on his old form. Yasir has been running consistently well this year without success so take him to just miss out once again, while Saga Spirit can build upon her fourth place finish at Yarmouth to hit the frame in this race.
