"A cracking handicap with several chasing a penalty to get into the weights for the Cesarewitch."
Bilidn racked up a 5-timer at up to 2m earlier this year, but no impression up in class behind Montaser at Ascot last time and 3 lb higher still here.
The Betchworth Kid is a listed winner on the level at his peak but seems to be just going through the motions these days, folding tamely at Newmarket last time.
Montaser looks a handicapper to keep firmly on side, winning at Haydock and Ascot last twice. Impressive up in trip to 2m last time and has more improvement in him.
Repeater was successful twice at 2 yrs and further improvement this term, markedly so when fourth in slowly-run Doncaster Cup last week. Thrown in back in handicap on that form but drops markedly back in trip.
Tappanappa won twice over 1½m on AW earlier in year and good third at Kempton in June (final start for Andrew Balding). Not disgraced back on turf twice for new yard but will find easier openings.
Mawaqeet was visored when deservedly opening account in 11f Hamilton handicap in July. Further improvement behind thriving Sir Graham Wade at Goodwood since and interesting player up in trip.
Call It On is better known for jumping exploits for current yard. 2 efforts back on the Flat at Ascot this summer leave him with plenty to find in this company.
Sohar is a lightly-raced filly who improved when ½-length second in 1½m Newmarket handicap a couple of months ago, staying on well. More needed here and yard had just 1 individual winner all year.
Suzi's A Class Act NON-RUNNER
Handsome Man won 1½m Newmarket handicap in May and collared late in King George V handicap at Royal Ascot next time. Stopped in run when good sixth at Newmarket last time and could go on again.
Modernism justified strong support when making all in 1½m Goodwood handicap last month and good fourth in hot Ascot contest since. Another step forward required to take this.
A cracking handicap with several chasing a penalty to get into the weights for the Cesarewitch. Repeater is thrown in on a literal reading of his Doncaster Cup fourth, but he's taken on with the hat-trick seeking Montaser, who is at the head of the market for next month's Newmarket contest and has a lot more to offer.
