9/2

Won over this distance at Nottingham on his opening start of the campaign but has been unable to follow it up since then. He was fourth of seven last time at York (2m½). Has to be respected off this latest mark at a more suitable trip.

8/1

Experienced gelding who has been successful at Lingfield (1m5f) and Salisbury (1m6f) recently. He was well held on his last start at Chester (1m5½f). Remains off the same mark so he does need to find more. Is capable on old form.

9/4

Was successful twice in 2018 but is still searching for his opening win this year. He was second of seven last time at Newmarket (1m4f). Did score on only previous appearance at this course. Big player off the same mark as latest run.

7/1

A C&D winner here on his opening start of the season. Has been unable to hit the frame in his last two appearances at this track, with his latest attempt coming over this distance where he was fourth of six. Has to be respected over this C&D.

11/2

Was successful at Epsom (1m4f) last year but has been unsuccessful in five starts in 2019. Produced his best run of the campaign so far on his latest outing at Ffos Las (1m6f). Remains off the same mark. One to consider.

5/1

Dual-purpose gelding who won at this track earlier this year over 2m. He didn't stay last time here where he was last of 19 in a 2m4½f contest. Has gone down 10lb in the weights but he needs to bounce back.

13/2

His sole success came at Pontefract (1m4f) at the back end of last year. Has struggled so far this season, including on latest attempt at Ffos Las (1m4f) where he was sixth of nine. Back up in trip. Others make more of an appeal.

Forecast

Past Master (9/4), Orin Swift (9/2), Age Of Wisdom (5/1), Never Surrender (11/2), Jukebox Jive (6/1), Beer With The Boys (13/2), Rydan (7/1), Berrahri (8/1)

Verdict
PAST MASTER is facing this distance for the first time in his career, however, he is likely to enjoy the stiffer test. He was second last time behind a smart horse Newmarket and off the same mark as that outing, this looks a good chance of him to score for the first time this year. Orin Swift has already scored at this distance and is now back to winnable mark so expect him to go close, while C&D winner Rydan can fill up the placings at a track a lot of his best form has come at.
