Going the right way, improving from his wide-margin Nottingham win (10.2f) up 11 lb when going close in a stronger race at Goodwood over further. Not sure drop in trip is ideal but clearly dangerous.

Back on the up when winning 9.5f Wolverhampton handicap 4 weeks ago. That form isn't looking great but he could have more to offer despite 5 lb rise.

In good form over this trip, making all in Lingfield and Windsor handicaps the last twice under this rider. Wouldn't rule out in hat-trick bid from favourable high draw.

Won 9.5f maiden at Wolverhampton in January. Gelded since last seen in April, has some strong bits of form to his name and returns still not fully exposed. Interesting.

Very well-bred colt who failed to get his head in front in Ireland (sold from Aidan O'Brien 30,000 gns in July), showing fairly useful form at his best but also signs of temperament. Handicap debut.

Back to winning ways in C&D handicap last month but ran poorly at Newcastle next time. Others preferred.

Opened his account in style in 12-runner handicap at Salisbury (9.9f) last month under this rider. Travelled well but didn't stay 12f at Kempton next time and could do better back down in trip here.

Much improved this season, winning 1m handicaps at Chepstow and this track. Not seen to best effect back here 24 days ago (form working out) and a player up in trip.

Forecasts

Ziggy (9/4), Wallem (10/3), Rewired (9/2), Just Jacob (5/1), Crema Inglesa (11/2), Dual Identity (8/1), Dickens (9/1), Beautiful Crown (16/1), Remedium (33/1), County Wicklow (50/1), Swinton Noon (100/1)

Verdict

There could be a bigger effort in WALLEM back from 5 months away. He has some strong bits of form to his name and is not fully exposed as he returns after a gelding operation. There are plenty of solid alternatives, Crema Inglesa and Just Jacob a couple in particular.

  1. WALLEM
  2. CREMA INGLESA (IRE)
  3. JUST JACOB (IRE)
