10/1
11/4, creditable third of 7 in handicap at Southwell (6.1f) 32 days ago, not seen to maximum effect. Interesting back on turf with young Larson (twice a winner on him) taking off 8 lb.

Latest win at Wolverhampton in April. Good third of 16 in handicap at Thirsk (6f, good, 14/1) 9 days ago, running on. Could go well again.

7/1
Lightly-raced maiden. Disappointing in Beverley handicap when last seen 10 months ago but earlier form reads well and he's worth another chance on return having been gelded.

Fifth of 6 in handicap at Musselburgh (7.2f, good, 10/1) 10 days ago, not ideally placed. Has work to do.

7/2
Course winner. 9/2 and cheekpieces on for 1st time, respectable fourth of 8 in handicap at this course (6f, good) 19 days ago, slowly away. On a good mark but this trip is a concern.

8/1
Off 3 months, 6/1, below form eighth of 13 in handicap at Newcastle (6f) 10 days ago. Return to 7f will suit, career-low mark and young rider has enjoyed success.

Fifteen runs since last win in 2019. 11/1, bit below form sixth of 15 in handicap at Thirsk (7f, good to firm) 14 days ago, making effort earlier than ideal. Hood on 1st time.

Forecasts

Zumurud (7/2), The Great Heir (7/2), Equidae (5/1), Business (7/1), Nordic Fire (8/1), King Of Tonga (8/1), Etikaal (17/2), Thrave (10/1), Tathmeen (12/1), Donnelly's Rainbow (20/1)

Verdict

BUSINESS was disappointing when well backed on his handicap debut when last seen 10 months ago but remains with potential for 2021 having been gelded and is worth chancing. Thrave is interesting back on turf with his young rider able to claim 8 lb. Nordic Fire is another to consider.
