28/1
3/1 and blinkered for 1st time, seventh of 13 in handicap hurdle at Hereford (16.2f, good) 17 days ago, racing closer to pace than ideal. Fairly useful on the Flat, looked rusty at Bath last month.

Unreliable sort. Ran badly when last of 9 in handicap (14/1) at Newcastle (10.2f) 24 days ago. Needs to put that effort behind to feature.

14/1
Probably needed the run after 4 months off when eighth of 10 in handicap at Epsom (10.1f, good to firm, 20/1) 78 days ago. Appearances have been sporadic this year so maybe best watched.

18/5
One win from 22 Flat runs. 15/2, first run since leaving Ed Dunlop when ninth of 14 in handicap at this course (7f) 22 days ago, left poorly placed. Significantly up in trip. Can make presence felt.

9/2, didn't need to improve to win 19-runner handicap at Redcar (8f, soft) 24 days ago, better placed than most. Up in trip. Makes polytrack debut. Not taken lightly.

50/1
Fair form on the Flat for Mick Quinn last year but no real impact over hurdles/Flat since joining this yard. Has had a breathing op since but perhaps best watched unless the betting hints otherwise.

Forecasts

Vocatus (11/4), Maysong (18/5), Meisterzinger (9/2), Kentucky Kingdom (6/1), Dark Company (10/1), Elmejor (11/1), Azets (11/1), Bayston Hill (14/1), Union Spirit (14/1), Dandy Maestro (18/1), Dream Machine (28/1), Central City (40/1), Act Naturally (40/1), Eventful (50/1)

Verdict

A host in with chances but 3-time C&D winner KENTUCKY KINGDOM is put forward as the answer. James Evans' charge looked back in form when fourth at Kempton just over a fortnight ago and, with this slightly shorter trip sure to be in his favour, he's taken to score again. Vocatus heads the dangers having ended a losing run at Redcar earlier this month, ahead of Maysong and Meisterzinger.
