7/1

Still 8lb higher than when winning comfortably earlier in the year at Brighton. Needs to bounce back from a disappointing effort at Newmarket last time but has ideal conditions and Ryan Moore takes the ride.

3/1

Given a smart ride to win from the front at Chelmsford (1m, AW) last time. 4lb penalty requires a career best but he always gives his best and there is not a lot of pace in here again so could dictate.

11/8

Looked to be on the improve when winning well at Nottingham two starts back. Not sure the step up in trip suited at Newbury next time so a return to shorter looks a positive. Still has plenty of potential to improve passed this mark. Leading player.

4/1

Won at Epsom in April and confirmed his liking for that track when second of five off this mark last time. One to consider and is the other likely pace angle with George.

9/1

Having won a novice event at Windsor two starts back he was a disappointing favourite on handicap debut at Sandown last time. Clearly thought capable of better than that but Adam Kirby prefers Corazon Espinado.

Betting

Forecast

Tahreek (11/8), George (3/1), Corazon Espinado (4/1), Ateem (7/1), King's Slipper (9/1)

Verdict
Corazon Espinado has been in fine form of late and should be in a good position to try and stretch these from near the front. TAHREEK didn't seem to stay the 1m2f at Newbury last time and still has lots of potential off this mark now dropping back to mile and is taken to get back to winning ways.
  1. Tahreek
  2. Corazon Espinado
  3. George
