- This opening event, restricted to beginners over obstacles, is as intriguing as it is to assess and it could pay to side with newcomer ROLLINGSTAR HAS (9), whose dam was a high-class Group performer. CLOVIS FOR KING (8), trained by the formidable Zetterholm-Georges duo, is another to note on debut along with Arnaud Chaille-Chaille's charge KOTAZO DU MATHAN (4) as well as SINGER DU BOURG (2). Both CHIMICHURI (16) and BENVENUTO (10) have shown enough on the flat to warrant respect/consideration in this sphere.
- INZEO DU GOUET (1) should be too smart for his rivals. He won over course and distance in April and has had a couple of outings since then. He could have most to fear from IDEAL DE SIVOLA (2) who is dropping in class. He won at Cagnes-Sur-Mer over 3800m in December 2022 and is capable on his best form. PIRIAC (4) has to convince over fences, this is only his second attempt at chasing. DERNIER CRI (5) makes up the shortlist.
- SISSI DU MESNIL (1) was a convincing winner at this track 22 days ago by 7L and seems to be improving, she is 4.5kg worse off at the weights today with her biggest threat KARA DIAMOND (5) who is very genuine and the finish should be between the two of them. LA SPEZIA (6) won nicely in a Class 2 race at Compiegne 19 days ago and is worth considering. TERRA BELLA (4) looks best of the remainder.
- KA FEE INN (1) won by 2.5L 26 days ago at this track over 3000m. He meets KARMIX (2) on the same terms weight-wise today it should be a race between the two of them at the business end. With an extra 500m, it is difficult to split the two old rivals. COEUR EN OR (3) was back in fourth in the same race and looks destined for a place position again. CHEAP MONDAY (7) drops in class and can be in the shake up at the finish.
- Although having a long absence, ODIAGO (10) is the selection. He won a Listed hurdle at this track when last seen in November 2021 and will be fit enough to get the job done. PURPROD BOIZ (6) has also had some time away from the racecourse since scoring in May 2022 in a chase. He can play a prominent role. INTREPID SUN (3) will improve for a recent run at this track and looks best of the remainder.
- ROYAL SAGA (1) was a good second on his chase debut 26 days ago at this track and he can go one better today and get his first success. FABULEUX RICO (4) looked useful when scoring by 5L at Compiegne in May and can give a good account of himself on his chase debut. DSCHINGIS LOVE (7) jumped well enough on her chase debut earlier this month and ought to be thereabouts. GAME OF STORM (2) can improve from a promising third at this track recently and warrants respect.
- MANDINKO (4) ran a good hurdle race debut at this track 26 days ago over 3600m. He can improve and looks the one to beat. KING DINO (7) is one that could make the selection work hard for victory. He won over 3100m in August on the flat, so has the ability. LE GARDE ROYAL (9) could be the best each-way angle and can be expected to improve from his only run when third at Pau in December 2022. JUMPER DETE (5) looks best of the remainder.
- JUS DE CAROTTE (2) has been irreproachable in steeplechase races at Auteuil and wouldn't be winning out of turn, so gets the nod to reconnect with success here at Auteuil. IT'S IN THE RAIN (10) and LADY COEUR (11), who recently finished 2nd and 1st respectively, are also serious contenders and likely to fight for victory. Both the Lageneste-Macaire stable's runners, VILLA RICA (3) and FRAGA HAS (1), have the means to stake a claim in a race of this nature on handicap debut.
- HADEWIN (2) has yet to disappoint at this course in his last three attempts and can win an open looking race. BIG GEORGE (10) likes this course and distance but is on a long losing run. POP LIFE (11) is unreliable and she needs to prove herself on this surace but cannot be dismissed from winning. OLAF THE BIG ONE (3) is capable of bouncing back to score over this track and trip.
- MAFALDA STORY (13) has been good at this course and should be a big runner over this track and trip. ACCLAM (12) showed improvement when runner-up last time out and could go one better thsi time. ASHIKTASH (2) was not disgraced when fourth in a claimer on this surface in his penultimate start but has to prove himself on this surface. ELUSIVE FOOT (4) is another in with a winnign chance.
- A tough race for the punters. MOON FLOWER (10) is unreliable but is capable of winning over this course and distance when in the mood. HYGROVE LASS (13) loves this course and distance and should fight out the finish. ULTIMATE FIGHT (5) is much improved of late and is capable of pulling off the hat-trick after some nice wins. MYSTICAL PRINCE (11) is another track and trip winner that can score again.
- EUREKA (3) has a good record in claimers and is right at home on this surface so gets the vote to score. His biggest threat could come from DODOMA (4) who is back on his favoured surface. DABIRADJA (1) does well in claimers and is better on the PSF so it could be worth ignoring the last run. QUEEN KAHINA (5) tries a claimer and could show vast improvement.
- A very open looking handicap. DAILYMOTION (1) is consistent and has won on the PSF so gets a narrow vote to score. SURPRIZE ME (6) has been unreliable over this track and trip but is coming off two wins and deserves respect. SWING THE RING (7) carries a penalty for a win last time out and is capable of following up. GRECIAN STAR (2) is in good form and has won on this surface.
- ACT OF GLORY (2) has the best form of these runners but is stepping up in distance and trying the PSF for the first time. MISTER SEGUI (1) has been good in this division so far and should be right there at the finish once again. DABASIR (3) showed improvement when stepped up in distance last time out and should have more to offer. BETANYX (5) was not disgraced when third last time out and can contest the finish.
- A weak race and anything is possible. GEORGIA (5) is in good form but has not won for some time and has been unreliable in claimers. He still gets the vote to score. AMANDERO (1) is unreliable but is also quite capable of winning when in the mood. MUSIC IS HER NAME (7) was a disappointment when only seventh last time out but has run well over this track and trip and is not out of it. FORCE TRANQUILLE (6) returned to form with a nice win last time out but is better on turf.
- CAPABLE (8) has not been showing her best on the turf recently but is capable of betyer and will like it back on the PSF. The same can also be said of ALFIERI (1) who has won twice at this course in the last couple of years. FIAMELCA DOLOISE (4) is coming off a nice win on the turf over a similar distance so could double up. FIELD OF GLORY (3) is fit and has some fair form but has also yet to win a race.
By Donal Murphy - A weak affair that concerns just three, with BEAUTY BELLA getting the nod over One Boss and Miss McHenry. Placed four-times from nine starts, the Adrian Murray-trained selection filled the runner-up spot over the course and distance on her most recent outing. In for a price of E25,000, the Buratino bay will be ridden by Jack Cleary who claims a valuable 7lb. One Boss (E25,000) is just about the highest rated runner in the line-up and while she disappointed at Punchestown earlier this month, a much improved performance can be expected from her now. Beaten by just a neck over the course and distance on her penultimate start, the Saxon Warrior bay certainly wouldn't be winning out of turn. Miss McHenry (E15,000) has some decent efforts to her name and should be able to make her presence felt in a contest of this quality.
By Donal Murphy - No worse than third in four visits to Bellewstown, another bold bid can be expected from WHAT ADAAY. Successful here in July, the Pat Martin-trained five-year-old was third when attempting to follow-up on her most recent start. The Bog Bank won this race 12-months ago and is another with a fine record at the Co Meath venue. Fourth or better on her last seven visits to the Hill Of Crockafotha, she will again be ridden by regular pilot James Ryan, with the young apprentice claiming a valuable 5lb. With Frankie Dettori aboard, Trueba famously won at this meeting in 2021 and it'll come as little surprise if he manages to strike again. The admirable gelding provided Wesley Joyce win this first win since returning from injury at Cork last month, and the Co Limerick pilot is reunited with the seven-year-old now. Fastman, Manhattan Dandy and Navorrosse are others for the shortlist.
By Donal Murphy - With Jamie Spencer aboard, it could be a case of third time lucky for RAMPAGE at Bellewstown. Beaten by a neck into second on his two previous visits to the Co Meath venue, the Tom McCourt-trained four-year-old has managed to win elsewhere. Successful at Leopardstown in July, he again triumphed at Galway on his most recent start. A case can be made for many others in this competitive affair, with Ampeson given second preference. A now six-time winner, the son of Mayson delivered on his debut for Gavin Cromwell at Fairyhouse last week and it'll come as no surprise if he manages to follow-up. Beaten by just a nose at Listowel, Mercurial is sure to have plenty of supporters, while Celebrating Ethel, Imposing Supreme and Sunday Sovereign are other leading hopes.
By Donal Murphy - Eddie Lynam has a strong hand, saddling three of the eight declared. The Co Meath handler is responsible for newcomer Bear Cub, along with KEKE and Cross Border. There was just a short head between the selection and his stable companion when they finished second and third behind Smullen's Pride at Down Royal earlier this month. Coming from off the pace, Keke was a fast-finisher at the Maze venue and appears to be progressing with every run. Rathbranchurch is the biggest danger. Without a win in 15 starts, he has filled the runner-up spot three times and went down by just half-a-length on his penultimate outing in a competitive 21-runner affair at Navan. In first time cheekpieces, the aforementioned Cross Border should give a good account of himself, while Ferrari Desert is another capable of making his presence felt.
By John O'Riordan - TAWAAZON is well drawn to repeat his course and distance win from earlier in the season. Back in April, the James McAuley trained gelding was smartly away and always raced prominently before quickening clear over a furlong out. A small field, on a tight track such as this, are ideal conditions for the five-year-old. Aloysius Lilius finished behind Dream Today at Laytown last time but had been a good winner at Tipperary in August. A former course and distance winner, the seven-year-old could be suited to strongly run race where he can sit in and deliver a late challenge. The aforementioned Dream Today was always to the fore when winning on the beach earlier this month, so should again be capable of playing a leading role.
By John O'Riordan - With trainer Gavin Cromwell having his team back in rude health, FINAL ORDERS looks poised to exploit a very lenient mark on the flat. A winner over course and distance in July, the seven-year-old added another success at this track when taking a handicap hurdle on his most recent start. A huge improver over fences last winter, the C M D Syndicate-owned gelding should be capable of winning races off 68. Little Jo had dropped a long ways in the handicap prior to showing a bit more when second at Galway last time. Given his strong ties with the Barney Curley yard over the years, Jamie Spencer looks a significant booking for the nine-year-old. Dark Miss is harder to evaluate on her handicap debut but with her stable amongst the winners recently the filly has to be considered.
By John O'Riordan - ALALCANCE can get off the mark at the fourth time of asking having just failed to win over course and distance last month. On that occasion, the Jessica Harrington trained filly ran on strongly inside the final furlong, only just missing out by a short head. Her proven ability to handle this tight track is a definite positive now she goes in search of redemption. Harsh also just lost out in a driving finish on his most recent start, weakening late on to finish third at Listowel last week. With the experience of five previous runs and a handicap rating of 82, the Joseph O'Brien trained grey should be involved. Hey Whatever finished just in front of the latter at Listowel recently, so can also make her presence felt. Perhaps, first-time cheekpieces will make the difference for the Noel Meade trained filly.
By Mark Nunan - Bumper and hurdles winner DE LADY IN RED is from a family which includes some useful chasers and she may be able to score at the first time of asking over fences. Her unplaced run at the Galway festival will at least have advanced her fitness and she had a good hurdles run on testing ground last year. Natural Look was set to win on her second chase start when coming down at the final fence at Kilbeggan. If none the worse for that tumble, she should contend but her best form has been on decent ground. Shesadream achieved the highest hurdles rating of any of these and is from the family of smart chaser Peregrine Run. She has never run on anything other than good ground, though, and underfoot conditions will be very different here.
By Mark Nunan - Eight-year-old LUCID DREAMS, whose dam is a half-sister to smart staying chasers Monkerhostin and Eric's Charm, only began his career in March and has already recorded three wins over hurdles. The form of his latest victory at Killarney was boosted by the runner-up at Listowel and John Ryan's charge is unlikely to be troubled by the drop back from 2m7f. Danny Mullins is an interesting booking for three-time hurdles winner Plains Indian. The Shantou gelding made a bad mistake when sixth on chasing debut at Downpatrick and, with a better round of jumping, may be able to turn around the form of that contest with third home Weddell Sea. Ahead Of The Posse was second over hurdles at the Galway festival and made a fair start over fences when third in a novice contest at Tramore.
By Mark Nunan - LOOK DONT TOUCH is still searching for a first win of any description after beginning his career two-and-half years ago but there have been encouraging signs of late. Runner-up in two of his last three starts over fences, he was narrowly beaten in a bunched finish on handicap debut at Wexford and stepping back up in trip should suit. He ran quite well on soft ground when making the frame over hurdles a couple of times last winter. Tempo Chapter Two has plenty of weight to carry on handicap debut but could outclass these rivals if jumping adequately. The topweight, who ran respectably in last year's County Hurdle and has won on soft, has shaped reasonably well in three beginners' chases. Clever Currency bumped into an improver when second over hurdles at Down Royal last time and has some fair handicap chase form to his name.%A0
By Mark Nunan - Rachael Blackmore ventures north-west for just one ride and POTTERS PARTY, expensive to follow over hurdles, can make her journey worthwhile. The Mahler gelding, fitted with a tongue-tie for this chasing debut, was a beaten favourite in all bar one of his five starts in maiden hurdles last term but was second to a decent horse in his only point-to point and going back over the larger obstacles may see him in a better light. Hard Rain was an easy winner over hurdles at Limerick during the summer and has plenty of experience over fences. The eight-year-old has made the frame in three handicap chases and only found one too good at Killarney last month. Point-to-point winner Jenny Flex, a half-sister to smart chasing mare Scarlet And Dove, was disappointing over hurdles but showed more on chase debut when second at Downpatrick. The winner was lowly rated but Jack Kennedy's mount should be better for the experience.%A0
By John O'Riordan - Having run her best race to date when runner-up at Wexford last time, PEPPEROCCO can get off the mark at the 15th attempt. The Ross O'Sullivan trained mare kept on from two out in a manner that suggested she should appreciate stepping back up in trip here. Relatively lightly raced over fences, the six-year-old has scope for further improvement. Agirlcalledchloe, who has been largely consistent in recent starts, shouldn't be too far away. The daughter of Notnowcato has been running well enough to suggest she can get her head in front in one of these. Topweight Room To Roam is another that wouldn't have to improve a great deal in order to make his presence felt in what is a moderate content. The John McConnell trained gelding shaped wel when fourth on his most recent outing at Downpatrick.
By John O'Riordan - MR SAXOBEAT has a bit to find with the two horses above him on official ratings but the Thomas Gibney trained gelding comes into the race in much better form that either of those. The seven-year-old won at Clonmel in June and has since finished runner-up twice. In between those second placings, he suffered an early fall at Galway but appears none the worse for that experience. Fighter Allen is arguably the best horse in this small field but the Willie Mullins trained eight-year-old hasn't been in the greatest form of late. While he can be forgiven a moderate run, on testing ground, at Tramore last time, it is harder to overlook his earlier efforts. Course and distance winner The Little Yank makes a quick return after finishing sixth over hurdles at Listowel on Saturday.
- The well-bred ALIGN THE STARS cost 100,000gns as a yearling and the son of Sea The Stars displayed plenty of promise when second on his debut over an extended mile at Hamilton a month ago. With the benefit of that experience and this step up in trip, Charlie Johnston's colt could be hard to stop. That said, Torrent also put in a promising display on his racecourse bow and he should not be underestimated, while Let's Dream completes the shortlist.
- LATTAM was sent off favourite for the Golden Mile when suffering interference at a crucial point, and the four-year-old, who has progressed well this season with victories at the Curragh and Newcastle, boasts strong credentials in his bid to bounce back from that effort. The Gatekeeper was runner-up in the aforementioned event and has since won here, having been awarded a race in the stewards' room at the end of last month. He is respected, while Fox Tal and Rhoscolyn are others likely to be in the mix.
- This has already been a rewarding season for Coco Bear and, having been trapped in a pocket when winding up with his challenge at Newmarket when last seen, he is a threat to all if he can negotiate a smoother journey from the same mark. However, CAPOTE'S DREAM is equally consistent and, having been cut some slack by the handicapper, he has a live chance of getting back to winning ways from a highly attractive mark. Ultramarine was rated 106 at his best in Ireland and also rates as a contender on these terms.
- It's hard to see past MY PROSPERO, a top-class performer who ran well at the highest level before his half-length second in the Group 2 York Stakes last time. The son of Iffraaj now drops into Listed class and he should have too much for this field. The main threat appears to be King Of Conquest, who had Savvy Victory behind him when fourth in the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster and he won't mind the forecast soft ground. Of the remainder, Rousay makes the most appeal after her fourth in the Upavon.
- LES BLEUS finished a respectable third in the Sweet Solera at Newmarket and performed just as well in Group 2 company since then. Richard Hughes' filly looks nicely treated by the conditions of this contest and a second success of the season could be in the offing. Adaay In Devon and Chic Colombine both secured hat-tricks on their latest appearances and must enter calculations, while the unexposed Local Arms could get involved too.
- Blazeon Five narrowly failed to make it three wins from her last four starts when a neck second over an extended 2m at Southwell a fortnight ago, but a further 2lb rise doesn't help as she drops in trip and preference is for the unexposed ALBANY. Ralph Beckett's filly accounted for a couple of subsequent winners when running away with a 1m2f novice contest at Windsor last month, shaping as though this longer distance could well suit, and a mark of 84 looks workable on her handicap bow. Royal Mila completes the shortlist.
- In an open event marginal preference is for the progressive MISS BLUEBELLE, who returned from a 90-day break to win over 1m2f at Bath last month. A 6lb rise for that success demands further improvement from the four-year-old, but she may well be up to defying the extra burden. Arthur's Realm is 1lb lower than when third in a valuable event at Chester last time and he edges out Chips And Rice and One Step Beyond to be best of the rest.
- DUNSTAN improved from first to second start when runner-up over C&D last time out and he looks like the one to beat if building on that effort. Behind him on that occasion were No Mischief (third) and Hebridean Nomad (fourth), who are open to improvement also. High Point is another to consider, along with Ardara Rose, an intriguing newcomer for the Richard Hannon stable.
- HAPPY HADEDA came from off the pace to finish a highly encouraging second at Newbury last month and this looks like an ideal opportunity to go one better. Placed on each of her three career outings, Rawaasi must enter calculations, along with Gogo Yubari, who has the potential to improve for stepping up in trip. Newcomers Cuban Melody and Diamond Annie can also have a say in proceedings.
- DEEP BLUE is better judged on her debut effort at Leicester where she wasn't beaten far over this distance having appeared to take a backwards step at Southwell. She gets the vote at the expense of Tayala, who has shown promise on both career outings at Goodwood and Newbury. Related to plenty of winners and a costly purchase at the sales, Ghaihaban must be monitored for market support on debut.
- MATHEMATICIAN continued his fine form to only be denied by a short head in a class 4 event at York last time and he was only raised 2lb for that effort. The Roger Varian inmate looks well placed to make it two out of his last three. Outgun filled the runner-up spot at Newmarket on his latest outing and would be foolish to dismiss off a 1lb higher rating, while Daarree could also have a say after his third at Chepstow.
- HUMANITY makes his handicap bow for the John and Thady Gosden yard after scoring by just over three lengths at Lingfield to shed his maiden tag. The son of Roaring Lion could be well up to defying his opening rating of 82. Nader King ran too bad to be true at Goodwood last time, but he remains of interest in a first-time tongue tie. Maso Bastie improved in a first-time visor to finish second over C&D last month and is another in the mix.
- KING CABO has hit the crossbar the last twice, including over a mile around here when six lengths clear of the third, and he goes off the same mark for the Luke Dace yard. The son of Carpe Diem can gain a well-deserved third career success. The main threat is Wall Game, who got off the mark in June at Lingfield, while Secret Moment isn't entirely ruled out either.
- Embarked likely has more mileage off his current rating, but he doesn't appear the most straightforward and may be worth taking on in this contest. DONE DECISION ticks plenty of boxes, having finished a respectable third over 6f on his handicap debut at Salisbury earlier this month. The Tom Ward-trained gelding is bred to relish the extra furlong here and improvement looks on the cards. Fiscal Policy has a handy draw in stall two and is another who might unlock some potential now upped in trip.
- OVERSTATE failed to make an impression over hurdles this year when under the tutelage of Stuart Edmunds, but he holds leading claims on his C&D triumph in February and is fancied to get back on track off a 5lb higher mark. Berkshire Sundance has displayed enough ability to suggest that the three-year-old can land a race of this nature. The son of Decorated Knight is feared most if breaking better, with the in-form Doublethetrouble completing the shortlist.
- STADIUM TALK had plenty in hand when romping home in a 3m mares' maiden hurdle at Wexford at the start of this month, and readily appeals as the most attractive proposition on the back of that performance. Fellow Irish raider Gaye Winnie also landed a similar contest on her latest start and is feared most, despite stepping up in trip. Condesa and El Elefante both hold course wins, although the latter has something to prove as she tries hurdles for the first time, while the former has a stamina query now stepping up in distance.
- The consistent BEAUTY TO BEHOLD was a good second over C&D 16 days ago and she could provide a bit of value in her bid to go one place better. The six-year-old mare has shown a real liking for this course and, having improved since joining her current yard, she is a serious player off just 4lb higher. Uncle Bert was highly tried in the Mersey Novices' Hurdle at Aintree last time and has to be feared at this level after a break, while Irish raider Andys Flame is another to consider.
- SPUTNIK was unlucky to encounter an upwardly mobile contender at Kelso when last seen and, having gone well fresh in the past, he could be difficult to overhaul if he picks up where he left off in May. A Place Apart has a couple of more recent outings under his belt and is another rated highly in this company, while Attitash has snippets of form that suggest he can at least make the travel over from Ireland worthwhile.
- Park Annonciade recorded a first success in a novice hurdle over C&D at the start of August and should prove competitive now entering handicaps off what looks a workable mark. However, it may be worth chancing the returning THEREISNODOUBT, who has posted several creditable efforts in defeat in stronger contests earlier this year. Representing the Gordon Elliott yard, Nottodaybobo is sure to prove popular and also merits consideration.
- WASDELL DUNDALK has really got his act together over fences of late, as seen when completing a double over C&D earlier this month. The eight-year-old has displayed enough authority in those triumphs to suggest that he can complete a hat-trick at this higher level. Born Famous is sure to have her supporters after notching a sixth successive victory over hurdles here last month, while Lucinda Russell's Haute Estime has scope off her current mark.
- Prince Nino appears to relish this track and trip having gained a second success at this venue earlier this month. A 5lb rise is unlikely to prevent Lizzie Quinlan's gelding from being in the mix once again. Preference, however, is for CONFELICITY, who was only worn down in the latter stages over 3m here latest. A drop in distance to 2m4f may prove just the tonic for the five-year-old, while Ultra Violet is another expected to have a say.
- Wichahpi has to be respected having got off the mark at Thirsk last week, but a 6lb penalty will make life tougher for her. With that in mind, preference is for MECCA'S DUCHESS, who was a close second on the same card nine days ago and she can race off the same mark here. Miss Woo Woo and Be Here Now are others who are capable of going very well in an open event.
- AMAYRETTO only just failed to get up when a head second over 7f at Newcastle last week and the step up in trip can help her to go one better off the same mark here. Goldmine Girl bounced back to form when fourth at Thirsk recently but that was over 6f and this extra distance is a slight concern, while Budding Poet completes the shortlist.
- HIGHLAND SPRING has shown promise in both previous starts and, given how well those races have worked out subsequently, it would be no surprise to see the son of Dubawi get off the mark here. Alacrity is arguably the pick of the newcomers being a half-sister to the Group 1-placed Albaflora, although Involvement and Modern Times were both pricey purchases and they cannot be discounted. Game Management took a big step forward when runner-up at Thirsk on his second start, but Kevin Ryan's colt faces an even tougher test here.
- Having been turned over at odds of 1/25 in a match race at Ripon 22 days ago, DOOM isn't one for maximum faith. However, her rating of 82 sets the bar higher than most of the opposition have so far encountered and she is given the chance to atone for that shock defeat. Rising Bay is the obvious danger based on the official ratings, although Bustaam (third) may be able to turn around recent Carlisle form with Hills Of Gold (second), and he can also have a big say.
- HIGHWAYGREY, who runs off 5lb lower than his last winning mark, seems worth chancing now he has adapted to racing in cheekpieces. Although he finished fifth of six over C&D eight days ago, he wasn't beaten far and, nudged down 1lb, his case for a return to form is only enhanced. Coincidentally, Havana Party chased home the selection in second the last time he was successful and, given that one's resurgent form, a repeat of that feat is feasible. Casilli and Strawman are others of note.
- STONE OF DESTINY (second) had Lotus Rose (third) behind when putting in a very pleasing display to only go down by a neck over an extended 5f at Doncaster last time and the eight-year-old is able to contend off the same mark. Therefore, he could prove very hard to beat. Albegone justified his market support at Catterick, which made it two out of his last three, and he makes plenty of appeal in his current mood. Straits Of Moyle completes the shortlist.
- Homer Stokes is seeking the hat-trick after recording a C&D double at Southwell recently and he is hard to ignore off a 4lb higher mark. However, the vote goes to KALGANOV, who was only denied by a short head at Ayr last week and he can compete off the same mark, which should put him bang there once again. Biplane filled the runner-up spot in the Leger Legends race at Doncaster last time and she is another to note.
- RUN SMITTY RUN has been thereabouts in deeper looking races of last and can be fancied to rise to the task at this level. I Ninety Five also rates as a serious contender, while Bolt Above is another with something to offer after hinting at a return to form lately.
- It's hard to be dogmatic about any of these, but BEAUTIFUL TEMPLE has some solid form at a higher level and looks worth chancing in this company. Witch Of November is notable back at this trip and completes the shortlist alongside potential improver Mrs. Speaker.
- Having won two of his last five starts, COMMANDER CARL knows exactly what to do when the chips are down and he looks the safest option here. Yak and Job Security are a couple of others to monitor in the betting, while Code Runner isn't without hope at this level either.
- Plenty of unknown quantities here who could upset the formbook including newcomer WALK ON BY, a daughter of Twirling Candy, who has been working well enough to suggest a winning debut is possible. Anna's Wish showed sings of ability on her debut and could make her experience tell, while Fasta Lavista Baby drops in class and is another to consider.
- Tiger Moon, Nordic Light, and Moment could all go well if they can repeat their better form, but they are up against the improving ON A SPREE, who is looking for his fifth win in a row. This is his biggest ask yet, but he has been rising through the ranks all year and may yet take this in his stride.
- There are plenty of well-bred newcomers here who are catching the eye with their recent work, possibly headed by BLUE SQUALL who has been motoring in recent days. Twirling Good Time may end up as her main danger, though a case can also be made for debut runner-up Mia Marcela, who has that experience edge to call upon.
- Order Of Magnitude's last two starts at Saratoga put him firmly in the picture, but MONEY SUPPLY has marginally better form at this sort of level and he edges the vote this time. Lupo's Legacy and St. Elmo may have to settle for scrapping it out as the best of the remainder.
- NO NAY HUDSON, who emerged as a cosy winner of the William Walker Stakes here on his penultimate start, is a highly appealing option and he shades preference over Excess Magic and Evan Sing back at a happy hunting ground.
- The betting market should be informative, with DANCING PRINCESS suggested as the first one to note for any signs of support. Krickle looks the pick of the remainder from those with previous experience, while Cheyenne Moon and Red Sun Dress have something to offer on paper and are newcomers to monitor closely.
- Sensible cases can be made for plenty in this field, but none more so than PARADISE PRIDE, the winner of his last five starts and well worth a try in this slightly better contest. Ahsad also scored last time out and may prove his biggest threat, closely followed by Colonel Moorhead and El Hermano.
- In a tricky race to call, at least HELEONORTIZ brings consistency to the argument with a win in July, a second in August and a fourth last time out, and he may be the most reliable in this field. Chalk Hill is better than what we saw last time out and may be next best, though Chloe Rose and Musical Cat could also get competitive.
- In a wide-open contest it may pay to side with RAISE THE RENT here, the winner of a better race last time out by a couple of lengths. Cloud Music heads a long list of dangers alongside Cajun Dream, Street Hustle and Massimo.
- MAINLINE bounced back to form with a vengeance last time out and, given this looks to be an easier assignment, a repeat of that level could suffice in her bid for back-to-back successes. Above The Limit is also respected after winning over C&D at the start of this month, while Awesome View is another to note.
- JUST GREAT, a wide-margin winner on debut, is hard to oppose given the manner of that performance last month. Boh's N O's and Designer are a couple of other promising types who are expected to go well.
- HUSBAND MATERIAL was denied by just a head here last time out but a step forward from that could see him gain some compensation. Coronova (second) and Andrez Conquist (third) are closely matched based on their encounter here 11 days ago and can also go well.
- Maiden winner Mon Gateau is one of the unknown quantities who could go well despite the step up in class, but it would be a shock if this doesn't go the way of either Give It A Whirl, who will be far happier dropping back in trip, or the progressive COPPER TAX, who is going from strength to strength.
- Providing may prove popular but she was beaten a long way into second last time out and there is every chance that RAIN OF BLESSING could have her measure with her wealth of experience and a good second last time out. Sk's Heart also deserves a mention.
- NEON DEION was well-held in fourth over 5f on his latest outing at Hawthorne, but that was a much stronger contest than and he could take full advantage of this lower grade. Cloud In The Wind and Empty My Pouch are others to watch out for.
- EPIC drew clear to go in by just over three lengths in this grade last time and, as long as he remains in that sort of form, he could prove very hard to beat. Unbridledselection and Bear Creek can give him the most to do.
- MEANT TO BE LUCKY recorded the best speed figure on show on his latest outing at Turf Paradise when he finished fifth, and if he can transfer that form to this track, he could shed his maiden tag. Newcomers Chaste One and Son Of Reality would be of interest if they draw any market support.
- DUDEWITHTHEDIAMOND had Gambling Man (third) behind when runner-up over C&D last time out and he is taken to go one better. Flat Busted cannot be ruled out either.
- MUNNIS PRETTY has been knocking on the door of late and this looks like a good opportunity to get off the mark. She can master the likes of Jazz Time Girl and Real Good Vybz.
- MAGIC WIZARD has shown enough in recent starts to suggest that he can get back to winning ways. Huntin' The Rut and Moca Monster are leading contenders also.
- Queen Wiggy and Lady In Heels both command respect but this can go the way of SERENADE A KITTEN, who had plenty in hand when winning over 6f here 15 days ago and is unlikely to be inconvenienced by dropping back in trip this time.
- Most of these have claims on the pick of their efforts but BATTLE CREEK is still at the top of his game after a respectable second-placed finish here 15 days ago and can add to the two course wins he gained over the summer. Ceduna (third) has something to find with the selection based that aforementioned race, so Side Tracked is suggested as a more potent threat this time up.
- The class-dropping The Gospel Of Mark has claims at this level, while Golden Money has to be respected on the back of three recent near misses. However, a chance is taken on the race being run to suit CRAZYCANTBERIGHTED, who could be difficult to overhaul if he is allowed to set the early fractions.
- This might boil down to a head-to-head between Years Ago and TEAM GOLD DIGGER, with the latter marginally preferred given her proven form at this sort of level. Gran Mamibella is another with solid claims.
- None of these can confidently be ruled out, but CARISMATICA rates as a leading contender based on her consistent recent profile and her willing attitude. Kingston Time and Sabelle appeal most of the remainder.
- ACROSS THE AISLE takes a sizeable drop in grade after being well held in sixth last time, but he should prove to be more than capable at this level. It's Fate and Noble Behavior aren't out of it either.
- GEHRIG has recorded a double in this grade on his last two outings and he has produced very good speed figures in the process, so he is likely to prove hard to beat once again. The Cookie Man and O Cigano can follow him home.
- ORLEANS STORM was only denied by a length in this grade last time and he looks to have lots in his favour to go one better on this occasion. Indy Carr and John Philip are others to consider.
- HAPPILEA won a shade cosily over C&D last month and rates as the one to beat in his current form. Lauda Speed is feared most ahead of Shadow Tracer.
- Specialized is sure to prove popular in his current form and the colt should go close in his bid to land a hat-trick. Nevertheless, JEBIP has some strong form to his name and is taken to put his latest defeat, when bumped at the start, behind him. A Prayer For Kids is next best.
