Notched a win at Southwell at the start of 2022 and has continued in good nick. Poorly drawn at Ascot last time, so effort is easily excused, and he's likely to be thereabouts.

4-y-o who completed a double at Pontefract and over C&D in May/June. Has hit the frame on both starts since, so another solid showing is expected.

Lurking on a dangerous mark but hasn't really been firing lately and was down the field at this course 4 days ago. Others preferred.

Got back to winning ways over C&D in April and he has remained in good form subsequently, fourth in the Dash at Epsom 56 days ago. Can put up another bold showing.

Three-time winner last year and on a fair mark at present. Shaped encouragingly at Sandown last time, so worthy of consideration with the return to this trip firmly in his favour.

Beat a subsequent winner at Nottingham in June and has performed respectably since, not seen to best effect when third at the same track last time. Considered.

Has had a fine season and took another step forward when dominating 9 rivals at Newmarket a week ago. Finds himself 1 lb lower than for that success, so obvious claims.

Made a bright start for this yard, showing improved form to run out a decisive winner at Ascot in May. Has disappointed twice since, though.

Career best when winning 11-runner handicap (12/1) at Newmarket in June but failed to beat a rival in a 5-runner event at Catterick 17 days ago.

Tends to go well at this track and shaped as if still in form when fifth to Dream Composer over C&D 55 days ago. Likely primed for a big run, so can't be discounted.

Ran well on the back of a breathing operation when third at Windsor in June but failed to back it up at Ascot last time. Others make more appeal.

In-and-out form this season, his latest run at Southwell a poor one, so it's easy to look elsewhere.

Forecasts

Lethal Levi (5/6), Dream Composer (13/2), Many A Star (8/1), Nelson Gay (12/1), Mitrosonfire (14/1), The Lamplighter (16/1), Abate (16/1), Stone Of Destiny (18/1), Mokaatil (18/1), Digital (22/1), Treacherous (25/1), Dark Shot (50/1)

Verdict

LETHAL LEVI has thrived this season and has a chance to race from a 1-lb lower mark than when successful at Newmarket a week ago, so he's an obvious choice. Otherwise it's an open race, but there's good reason to expect big efforts from Dream Composer and Mokaatil.
