Back to winning ways in Newbury handicap over this trip last month and a creditable effort when third at Newmarket next time, not ideally placed. May find a few too good in this line-up.

Improved in first-time cheekpieces when excellent second on handicap debut but unable to build on that in first-time blinkers next time at Yarmouth. Cheekpieces back on so worth another chance.

Showed improved form to get off the mark on handicap debut at Lingfield (11.6f, good) 51 days ago, driven out and always doing enough. Should go on improving and rates a leading player.

Made it 2-3 at Kempton when winning her penultimate start and ran creditably when fifth back there last time. Seems more consistent on the all-weather than turf so others more persuasive.

Scored at Yarmouth and Brighton earlier this year. Not disgraced when 5½ lengths fifth of 8 to Sky Bright at Leicester in July but she's seemingly in the grip of the handicapper for now.

Fair form on a couple of starts on turf but was below that level back on all-weather at Kempton 6 weeks ago. Makes handicap debut but others make more appeal on this occasion.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Cases can be made for several, but the vote goes to HARSTON, who showed improved form to get off the mark on handicap debut at Lingfield in July. With further progress on the cards, Harry Eustace's charge is taken to follow up from just a 3 lb higher mark. Light of Thunder showed much more on her second handicap start when third at Windsor last time so she's feared most, ahead of Missile.

Betting Forecast

16/1 Sunset Memory, 10/1 New Heights, 5/1 Missile, 300/1 Carnival Craft (Ire), 3/1 Harston, 9/1 Super Proud, 14/1 Sharla, 14/1 Lochanthem, 25/1 Pirouette Queen
