Ripp Orf (7/2), Hateya (9/2), Corazon Espinado (7/1), Love Dreams (7/1), War Glory (8/1), Adorable (8/1), Nobleman's Nest (10/1), Alemaratalyoum (14/1), Blackheath (16/1), Shady Mccoy (25/1), Start Time (25/1), Gabrial The Devil (33/1)

Verdict
With a whole load of pace in this contest, it might be worth taking a chance on RIPP ORF who appreciates a decent gallop to aim at. He's now well below his last winning handicap mark and ran well enough at Ascot last time out to suggest he's in good heart. Start Time may have needed his return at Doncaster and has the scope to do better this year while Corazon Espinado is a course specialist edging back down towards his last winning handicap mark.
