There are 20 runners in this race.
|1||5||21||2 Teruntum Star
Posted best effort since last seasons winning reappearance when fourth of 15 in first-time cheekpieces at York (6f, good) 21 days ago. Still, others make more appeal for win purposes.
|2 ||Kevin Stott||Kevin Ryan||9/1||13/1||31|
|2||6||12||8 Red Pike
Has slipped to an attractive mark and bang there at the finish at Doncaster (6f) 3 starts back. Not in the same form since, though, and its been 2 years since he last got his head in front.
|3 ||Adam McNamara||Bryan Smart||18/1||11/1||64|
|3||5||7||12 Magical Effect
Successful over C&D on return in April and best effort yet when regaining the winning thread at Redcar (6f, good to soft) last weekend. Up 7 lb in a tougher race now, but major claims nonetheless.
|4 ||James Sullivan||Ruth Carr||9/1||5.5/1||64|
Misfired back from a break at Newmarket, but returned to form with a bang (cheekpieces refitted) at Nottingham (6.1f, heavy) recently. Couldnt rule out, for all that this is much tougher.
|4 ||Alistair Rawlinson||Michael Appleby||12/1||26/1||54|
Hit the target twice in 2016, but yet to hit top gear this time round and theres an air of vulnerability about him at present.
|4 ||Daniel Tudhope||Rebecca Bastiman||18/1||21/1||14|
|6th||4||29||7 King Robert
Fitting of a visor reignited his spark on the AW earlier this year, but has found life tougher since switched back to turf. Yard also saddles Red Pike.
|2 ||Graham Lee||Bryan Smart||20/1||11/1||82|
|7th||4||14||19 The Armed Man
Notched fourth victory of the season when narrowly prevailing at Thirsk (6f, good to soft) a fortnight ago. More needed now 5 lb higher in a stronger race, but hes clearly on the up.
|4 ||Paula Muir||Chris Fairhurst||10/1||13/1||23|
|8th||6||20||15 Art Obsession
Poorly drawn when well held in the 6f Pontefract handicap won by Bossipop last time. In good form prior to that, successful at Doncaster on penultimate start, and hes in with an each-way shout.
|3 ||Barry McHugh||Paul Midgley||22/1||26/1||15|
|9th||3||14||20 Hee Haw
Winner of his final 2 starts for Keith Dalgleish in June, but has proved disappointing since switched to new yard.
|4 ||Franny Norton||Paul Midgley||33/1||41/1||20|
Back on the scoresheet at Beverley last month, but has compromised his chance by blowing the start both runs since and, in any case, this mark may prove beyond reach.
|3 ||Cam Hardie||Antony Brittain||22/1||34/1||35|
Scaled new heights when seeing off 15 rivals in 6f Epsom handicap in June. More miss than hit overall this season, though, and the percentage call is to look elsewhere.
|3 ||Jason Hart||John Quinn||33/1||23/1||43|
|12th||4||14||13 Start Time
Promising at 2 yrs for Godolphin, but has failed to beat a rival home in 2 runs for new connections since returning from a lengthy layoff last month. One of 4 representing Paul Midgley.
|3 ||Tom Queally||Paul Midgley||50/1||51/1||2|
Runner-up in couple of typically competitive York sprint handicaps in May. Form has dipped since, but edging back down the weights and hell be a danger to all if on-song here.
|2 ||Rachel Richardson||Tim Easterby||16/1||13/1||23|
|14th||4||25||18 Paddy Power
Has struggled since resuming winning ways at Newmarket in May, and one suspects that he will again come up short.
|4 ||Tony Hamilton||Richard Fahey||20/1||34/1||41|
|15th||5||7||11 Lexington Times
Ended losing run stretching back to March 2015 at York (6f) last month. Close third at Haydock subsequently and, like stablemate Magical Effect, he has to enter calculations.
|4 ||Jack Garritty||Ruth Carr||11/1||11/1||0|
Back to form in recent weeks, following his decisive Pontefract victory with a solid effort in defeat over this C&D 12 days ago. Still, a career-best needed if hes to emerge on top this time.
|3 ||David Allan||Tim Easterby||9/1||7/1||29|
Snapped long losing run when striking off a career-low mark at Nottingham latest, holding on gamely in refitted blinkers. Remains well treated based on peak 2016 form. Engaged 5.50 Newmarket Friday.
|4 ||Richard Kingscote||Paul Midgley||12/1||13/1||8|
Led home the group on the far side when fifth in this race last year, which was one of several solid efforts in 2016. However, 10-month absence to overcome on debut for new yard.
|2 ||George Buckell||Antony Brittain||40/1||29/1||38|
|19th||6||10||16 Harwoods Volante
Has found just one too good on 3 of his last 4 starts, but usually plies his trade in less competitive races than this and minor place money may be the best he can hope for.
|4 ||Jamie Spencer||David O'Meara||16/1||19/1||16|
|20th||8||21||1 Jack Dexter
Snapped a long losing run at Ascot (5f) last month prior to finishing down the field in an ultra-valuable 7f handicap there 3 weeks ago. Drop back in trip will help and hes capable of a bold show.
|2 ||William Carson||Jim Goldie||12/1||15/1||20|
