This may go to KOOL MOE DEE, who is on a fair mark on his good fifth in the Super Sprint at Newbury in July and showed comparable form when off the mark in a Southwell all-weather maiden last time.
Virginia Plane is next best ahead of One Day.
This is all about COLOUR IMAGE, who has the form to win this by a street. He’s never looked the most straightforward but, hopefully the gelding operation will have had the desired effect.
Should he frustrate once more then Segla, who probably bumped into a very good horse at Thirsk, would be the obvious one to take advantage.
Modest fare and a suitable-looking opportunity for lightly raced FOR RICHARD (NAP) to defy a 4lb rise and supplement his last-time-out course and distance win.
There could well be further improvement in this four-year-old and he can see off Apache Blaze and Zayrayan, who may prove the pick of the opposition.
This could be a good opportunity for TOYBOX to gain a belated second win, having been a solid second over C&D last time out.
Red Gunner, Act Of Magic and Drew Breeze also ran well last time out, but the main threat could come from Birkie Queen now back on better ground.
Water’s Edge impressed with the way he won at Windsor early last month and may yet have more to come, while Motamayiz didn’t appear to lack for stamina over this trip on his most recent turf start.
However, SUN TIDE joins the handicapping fray over a trip that should suit, both on her style of racing and pedigree, and she is given preference. Willy Nilly has not yet proved his stamina, but is worth another go at 1m 2f.
Catheadans Fury won over C&D last month on her first run since January, but her second run back from a break around this time last year was way inferior to the first.
ALBA DEL SOLE is preferred, with Storm Melody, Essaka and Indian Pursuit also respected.
Richard Hughes’s new recruit PRINCE IMPERIAL scorched home for fifth over 1m 2f at Chelmsford (AW) on last month’s handicap debut for Sir Michael Stoute.
With the step up in trip promising to suit, a chance is taken that this recent 50,000gns purchase can transfer his promise back to turf.
Fellow three-year-old Rosa Gold also goes up in trip in her bid for a four-timer and is feared most. Three-time course winner Singing The Blues could be best of the older contingent.
Most of the runners have something to prove on one count or another, not least TAHAN on his return from an absence.
However, he did show a glimmer of improvement over hurdles last summer and has gone to an up-and-coming yard so perhaps this will be his day.
Cafe Sydney needs to improve on recent efforts but like course specialist Filament Of Gold, she is at least proven on fast ground and should have a part to play.
