"...he certainly represents the best value at the prices, with David Probert, who was on him for his last win, back in the saddle..."

Timeform on Perfect Symphony

14:10 - JAQUAR (3) appeals as the type to do better now switching to handicaps fitted with first time blinkers and a tongue tie so he receives the vote. Doctor Jazz would be a big threat if bouncing back to the form of his Windsor victory in August.

14:45 - LONDON ROCK (3) is improving all the time and it sure to be winning races sooner rather than later. Tinto should give another good account, while On The Stage would be a threat now handicapping if returning to the form of her 4th in the Super Sprint at Newbury in July.

15:20 - PERFECT SYMPHONY (3) returned to form after just two days off and wasn't seen to best effect when second over C&D 11 days ago, making headway over two furlongs out before finding his path repeatedly blocked by the winner. Admittedly, Red Alert was well on top at the finish on that occasion, but Perfect Symphony meets that rival on 5 lb better terms here and that could be enough to swing the balance in his favour; he certainly represents the best value at the prices, with David Probert, who was on him for his last win, back in the saddle.

15:55 - HOPE IS HIGH (5) lost her way slightly over the summer, but a break and the re-application of headgear may just sharpen her up and she's certainly well weighted if that proves to be the case. Xinbama found only one too good here last time and is a big threat, along with High Wells.

16:30 - COGITAL (3) would appear to hold sound claims here. A good third on his debut at Newmarket in April, he has continued to give a good account in defeat since, including when fourth after a gelding operation/12 weeks off at Goodwood last time, and he will find few better opportunites than this to belatedly get off the mark, 5 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings after all.

17:05 - DELIRIUM (5) only just failed over this C&D 11 days ago and looks a worth favourite off the same mark. Four-time course-winner Mister Musicmaster is next best.

17:40 - STRAIGHT ASH (6) brings recent winning form to the table, which may well count for plenty here, and he can defy a 2 lb higher mark on the back of his Musselburgh victory 18 days ago. Mystic Meg and My Boy Sepoy are a couple of others to consider in a tricky finale.
