C&D winner but not seen out since last of 12 in handicap at Ascot (12f, good to firm) 73 days ago, left poorly placed after very slow start. Needs to bounce back.

In good form on level but arrives on back of poor effort over hurdles at Uttoxeter 16 days ago. Bit to prove now.

In winning form in the spring but has offered little since the restart, last of 6 in handicap at Sandown (10f, good to soft) 50 days ago. Back up in trip but others more persuasive.

Course winner but it's now sixteen runs since last win in 2019. Not disgraced over hurdles at Fontwell 18 days ago so respected back down in trip.

12/1

Fair 10f winner in 2019 but (11/2) last of 12 after 11 months off in handicap at Lingfield (12f, AW) on sole run this year. Hard to warm to.

6/4

Visored for 1st time, career best on AW bow when winning 11f handicap here 13 days ago, keeping on strongly. Up 6 lb but merits serious consideration over this longer trip.

11/2

Thirteen runs since last win in 2019, but not disgraced in cheekpieces from poor draw when sixth of 13 in 11f handicap (9/1) here 32 days ago. On a handy mark so worth considering.

Forecast

Culture (6/4), Noonday Gun (11/2), My Boy Sepoy (11/2), Make Haste Slowly (7/1), Torochica (10/1), Mayfair Spirit (11/1), Sneaky Peek (12/1), Kyllachy Gala (20/1), Busy Street (33/1), Renardeau (40/1)

Verdict

CULTURE made a fine start to life on the AW with a commanding win here earlier in the month so is fancied to follow up with this longer trip sure to play to his strengths. My Boy Sepoy is on a lengthy losing run but weighted to go close so seems sure to be on the premises, while course-winner Make Haste Slowly is also worth a second look in an open handicap.

  2. MY BOY SEPOY
  3. MAKE HASTE SLOWLY
