Modest form at best when placed at Hamilton last autumn on final run for Iain Jardine. Well held in Beverley novice on return for new yard but more realistic chance now handicapping.

Lightly-raced maiden. Fair fifth in 7f Doncaster handicap in June and didn't get the chance to show what he could do (hampered) when dropped back to 6f at Ayr last time. Cheekpieces on now.

Well held on reappearance but better signs when prominent for a long way at Ripon last time. Eased another 2 lb and interesting having won this race before.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Richard Whitaker has dominated this contest in recent years so a chance is taken on PENNY POT LANE, the winner in 2017, who showed up well for a long way in a better race than this at Ripon last time. The consistent Lezardrieux and recent Kempton runner-up Production head the dangers.

Betting Forecast

20/1 Jungle Rock (Ire), 7/2 Lezardrieux, 14/1 Anna Maria, 20/1 My Dandy Doc (Ire), 11/1 Dilithium (Fr), 7/1 Six Strings, 14/1 Nordic Fire, 11/4 Production, 9/1 Penny Pot Lane
