22/1

Improved on debut form under a positive ride when second of 10 in 7f novice event at Newbury. Disappointing since, though and mark demands more.

4/1

Built on promising debut when comfortably off the mark at Salisbury in August, then finished with running left (met trouble) on nursery debut at Doncaster last month. Hasn't finished progressing.

6/1

Has improved with each run to date and found plenty to get off the mark at Newcastle a fortnight ago. Bred to act on soft ground, so should put up another bold bid under a positive ride.

Placed the last twice, though needing no excuses when third at Pontefract on nursery debut 16 days ago, and others look more progressive.

7/1

Yet to meet expectations but was still green and better than the result (forced wide) when fourth in a novice at Wolverhampton last time, so open to further improvement if taking to the conditions.

5/1

More exposed than some but produced his best effort when second over 6f at Nottingham last time and, based on the way he finished, there could be more to come up in trip.

Confirmed debut encouragement when landing a claimer at Chelmsford in a comfortable manner but this looks a good deal more competitive and the conditions are an unknown.

Already looking exposed and below form the last twice, so hard to make a solid case for in a competitive event.

Lightly raced Sir Prancealot colt who again shaped with encouragement when third in a novice at Wolverhampton, making late headway without being knocked about. Type to better now handicapped.

4/1

Modest maiden who fared as well as could be expected when sixth in a sales race over 6f here 18 days ago. Should give another good account but she has nothing in hand.

Mild encouragement in maiden/novice company before a dismal switch to handicaps at Kempton 27 days ago. Mark demands improvement even if she is able to get back on track.

Forecast

Sayifyouwill (4/1), Twilight Song (4/1), Inveigle (9/2), Temple Bruer (5/1), Elusive Artist (6/1), Numoor (7/1), Eloquent Arthur (8/1), Capla Knight (12/1), Rogue Nation (16/1), Whiskey 'n' Chips (22/1), Ma Cherie Amour (25/1), Baby Sham (66/1)

Verdict

ELUSIVE ARTIST didn't have anything to spare when off the mark at Newcastle recently, but he and the runner-up were well clear and there's good reason to think he'll be suited by conditions, so he could prove a tough nut to crack if, as expected, he gets out in front early. Twilight Song and Eloquent Arthur both remain with potential, so they're just two of several dangers.

  1. ELUSIVE ARTIST (IRE)
  2. TWILIGHT SONG (IRE)
  3. ELOQUENT ARTHUR
