11/4
5/1, career best when winning 6-runner minor event at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 20 days ago, staying on to lead well inside final 1f. Career-high mark to contend with but should be in the mix.

10/1
4-time C&D winner. Four wins from 11 runs last year. Sixteenth of 24 in handicap at Goodwood (6f, heavy, 80/1). Ended last season in a bit of a lull so work to do on reappearance.

10/1
C&D winner. Three wins from 21 runs last year. 12/1, run best excused when seventh of 12 in handicap at Southwell (5f) 14 days ago, unsuited by drop in trip. Not ruled out back up in trip.

12/1
Unreliable type. Course winner. Fifth of 8 in handicap (13/2) at this course (5f, AW) 15 days ago. Not one to make excuses for so likely to come up short in this company.

5/2
C&D winner. Latest win here in August. 3/1, good ¾-length second of 9 to Muscika in handicap at this C&D (AW) 50 days ago. Yet to finish out of the first 2 on all-weather so holds leading claims.

Forecasts

Marks Bear (5/2), Soldier's Minute (11/4), Fizzy Feet (6/1), One Night Stand (7/1), Muscika (10/1), Count Otto (10/1), Top Breeze (12/1), Corinthia Knight (20/1), Bowman (33/1)

Verdict

Cases can be made for a few here but MARKS BEAR is yet to finish out of the first 2 on the all-weather so Gary Moore's charge gets the vote to notch a second C&D victory with his apprentice jockey Aidan Keeley taking off a valuable 7 lb. Top-weight Soldier's Minute picked up the pieces to score at Wolverhampton recently so he's an obvious threat, ahead of sole-mare Fizzy Feet.

  1. MARKS BEAR (IRE)
  2. SOLDIER'S MINUTE
  3. FIZZY FEET (IRE)
