Stone Of Destiny was impressive at Doncaster and looks a threat alongside Nahaarr who looks on the upgrade. Spanish City and Young Fire are bigger prices worth a look.

GULLIVER 3

GULL flies. Below par lately but just 2lb higher than when going close in a hot race at The Curragh in July. Place shout off big weight.

KYNREN 1

KYN won’t win. Had a wind op after two poor runs this season. Still 4lb higher than last win and best over 7f.

MAJOR JUMBO 2

JUMBO heavy. Drops to handicaps after modest Listed runs. Likes this trip and ridden by capable claimer but still has big weight.

HEY JONESY 2

HEY ho. Inconsistent but pulled off shock when winning Wokingham before poor run at Goodwood. Chance on best form over ideal trip.

LAHORE 1

LA sore. Good win at York in July before two poor efforts since. Would be happier over 5f and has too much weight.

MR LUPTON 5

LUP for Cup. Impressive Curragh win last week and likes a quick turnaround. Trip ideal and rider’s claim takes care of 5lb penalty. Solid chance.

BARBILL 2

HEFTY Bill. Fair sixth in Portland last time after win in lesser race at Chester. Likes this trip and any ground but needs a bit more.

NAHAARR 4

YES to Nah. Backed off boards before poor Stewards’ Cup run after easy Newbury victory. Trip suits and could be have more to come on this more suitable track. 

BIELSA 2

BIEL tolls. Finished last season well but has struggled this year. Best form has come in soft ground over this trip. Chance if the rain comes.

WISE COUNSEL 2

WISE guy. Goes well here and fair effort at Ascot last time over 7f. Can be awkward ride so could do with first-time cheekpieces helping.

KOROPICK 1

NOT the Pick. Was a Group 3 winner on the AW over this trip. Has been off three years so should need this comeback.

SPANISH CITY 3

CITY break. Third in the Wokingham on comeback and good effort over this trip back at Ascot last time. Yard in form, on fair weight and one of better outsiders.

SOLDIER’S MINUTE 3

WAIT a Minute. Didn’t fire at Donny last week after cracking second in hot race at York. Likes this trip and only beaten two lengths last year. Place shout.

STONE OF DESTINY 4

DESTINY calls. Big run to win Portland at Donny last week in style and every chance under 5lb penalty. Comes from behind so will need a little luck but major player.

AIR RAID 2

UP in Air. Back to form with a solid third at Hamilton latest, clocking a fair time. Off same mark but this is a lot tougher.

ANOTHER BATT 3

BATT mobile. Last run over this trip brought Thirsk win in sharp time and didn’t get home in Ireland last time. On fair mark and much happier over this distance.

RAYONG 2

RAY wrong. Best form has come over 5f and poor over this trip at Chester latest. Only three so could improve but needs to.

YOUNG FIRE 3

FIRED up. Improved to win over 7f at Haydock last time with lots in hand. Could finish race well if keeping up with early pace.

COLD STARE 2

COLD frozen. Hit and miss performer who came good to win over 7f at Goodwood in the mud. Has won over this trip but should lack pace.

GABRIAL THE WIRE 2

WIRE snapped. Modest efforts at Chester lately and has shown best over further. Should be outpaced at this level.

BUNGEE JUMP 2

JUMP gun. Still 8lb higher than last win at Newmarket in June. Trip suits and likes any ground. Looks outclassed.

ARECIBO 3

BO for it. Goes close a lot without winning and was fair fourth in Portland at Donny. Longer trip not an issue and could sneak into places again. 

WENTWORTH FALLS 1

FALLS down. Landed decent Donny win over this trip in June but below par since including back there last time. Lot to find.

STAXTON 3

TON up. Here off two good wins over this trip at Ripon. Penalty makes life tougher but in great heart and can’t be dismissed.

LEXINGTON DASH 2

MUST Dash. Still 6lb higher than when winning at Newmarket in June. Fair run over 7f last time but needs more again.
