Has looked better than ever this year and, having not had the rub of the green at Doncaster last time, he's capable of getting back to winning ways under Simon Walker.

C&D winner. Latest win at Goodwood in April. Has gone off the boil somewhat but could bounce back in first-time blinkers.

Only 3 runs on the Flat in Ireland but hurdling form since joining current yard would give him a chance off a mark of 75, so he's worthy of consideration.

Useful jumps winner, albeit he was last in a handicap chase at Stratford last time. Now visored for his return to the Flat, but others are a bit more appealing.

Won 12-runner handicap at Ffos Las (14f, heavy, 9/1) 11 days ago. Others more persuasive.

Arrives on a hat-trick and, given how well he travelled, he may well have had more in hand than the narrow winning margin suggested at Wolverhampton last time. Definite player.

Fair gelding who has slipped in th weights on the Flat and ran quite well on hurdling debut at Stratford 16 days ago. Not completely ruled out up in trip.

Forecasts

Frontispiece (15/8), Castel Gandolfo (10/3), Psyche (5/1), Singing The Blues (5/1), Saratoga Gold (13/2), Dino Velvet (22/1), Graffiti (28/1)

Verdict

FRONTISPIECE was better than the result last time and drops in grade with an experienced amateur on board, so he looks like the obvious choice. Singing The Blues arrives on the back of a win and remains well treated on old form, so he's considered a danger along with Castel Gandolfo.
