Winner at Doncaster (6f) in August. Creditable third of 14 in handicap over same C&D 21 days ago, suited by strong pace. Should give another good account.

Career best when winning 4-runner handicap at Chepstow (6.1f, good to soft, 9/4) 37 days ago, battling well. This is tougher, though.

Latest win at Salisbury in July. Creditable fourth of 11 in handicap at Lingfield (6f, AW, 8/1) 8 days ago, faring best of those held up. Can make presence felt.

10/1, bit below form fifth of 14 in handicap at Goodwood (6f, good) 7 days ago, unable to sustain effort. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

Produced a career best, in first-time blinkers, when readily taking 11-runner handicap at Hamilton (6f, good, 17/2) 10 days ago. 5 lb penalty may not prevent further success here.

Forecasts

The Green Man (9/2), Danzan (6/1), Iris Dancer (6/1), Good Earth (17/2), Cooperation (10/1), Nearly A Gonna (10/1), King Of Tonga (12/1), Glorious Rio (12/1), Willoughby Bay (12/1), Endowed (14/1), Abate (14/1), Michaels Choice (14/1), Phoenix Star (16/1), Fantasy Master (20/1), Blissful Song (22/1), Aristobulus (25/1), Kodias Sangarius (50/1)

Verdict

IRIS DANCER was galvanised by the addition of blinkers when scoring emphatically at Hamilton recently and is taken to follow up. Danzan and Phoenix Star rate the principal dangers.
