8/1

Tremendously consistent performer on the AW and although he hasn't won since this time last year, there is nothing wrong with his two placed efforts last month though has yet to run over this far in a 74 race career so stamina a concern.

Excellent track record though not for the first time looked an awkward ride when hanging under pressure here on latest and although claims on best form, takes on some progressive types here.

9/1

May have had the run of the race when second to Furzig here last time out but that represented a return to best and he is lightly raced on the A/W so possible there is more to come.

3/1

Improved when stepping up to this trip for the first time when getting up close home to best Original Choice by a neck recently and is building up a good profile on the A/W. 2lb rise alone unlikely to stop him.

5/1

Ideally wants a decent pace to aim at and not certain to get it here, but sound effort to chase home one who had the run of the race here last time and if getting race to suit has a bigger performance in him.

78-12OR: 88CD
3/1

Proved when winning here last time that 1m4f is now his optimum trip and although raised 6lb for that, he is still well below highest winning mark in the past so can't be easily dismissed.

88-10OR: 86CD
11/2

Gained deserved win over C&D here recently as he had no luck in running when second in a big field on previous start. 4lb rise is fair and although now in the veteran stage, is in the best form he has been for a while.

Betting

Forecast

Furzig (3/1), Kyllachy Gala (3/1), Creationist (5/1), Battle Of Marathon (11/2), Petite Jack (8/1), Pactolus (8/1), Original Choice (9/1)

Verdict

A strong race for the grade with plenty arriving in good form and it may be the one who gets the run of the race who comes out on top. FURZIG showed last time that he is tactically versatile and he may have more to offer so gets a narrow vote. Creationist hasn't had much luck in running of late suffering from moderately run races but can't be dismissed while Battle Of Marathon is in excellent heart and may not have finished improving.
