9/2
Old timer who ran on well over 6f in similar event here last term and may be better suited by this trip nowadays. Ran on when third at Wolverhampton last time.

Drops into a seller for the first time and went close here when runner-up twice last month, once over this trip and also at 10f. No stamina issues and top jockey steps in for the mount.

9/1
Only win in 16 starts came here over 6f in July off 2lb lower mark. Well beaten last two starts though and leading apprentice will need to be at his best to force him home at this trip.

7/2
25-race ex-Irish maiden. Was runner-up on first start for current yard here in June over 6f but failed to buld on that here last time. Tries an extra furlong but is hard to recommend given lack of career success.

20/1
Has won over a wide variety of trips but has looked woefully out of form so far this campaign. First-time hood now applied but looks to face a tough task.

Doubtful stayer whose only win to date came over five furlongs. Won on AW in March and probably better on that surface than on turf.

12/1
16-race maiden whose only decent form this year came when runner-up over C&D last month. Disappointed since but maybe a return to these climes will renew her enthusiasm and isn't totally out of the reckoning.

Forecast

Topmeup (11/8), Seaforth (7/2), Time Medicean (9/2), Born To Boogie (9/1), Kylie Style (12/1), Swift Fox (12/1), Malaysian Boleh (14/1), Suni Dancer (20/1), Lutine Charlie (20/1)

Verdict

Running in this grade for the first time, TOPMEUP is the choice with the excellent Adam Kirby booked. Malaysian Boleh has been a fine servant and goes well here so should be right on the premsies, while another veteran Time Medicean can't be ruled out of the equation despite the steadier of top weight. Last year's winner Lutine Charlie is out of form and seems likely to struggle to follow up, but Born To Boogie and Kylie Style aren't out of it on the pick of their recent efforts.
