The thriving Lilkian looks booked for another big run, while Gold Brocade and Blazing Hot also come into the reckoning.
KINGSHOLM was turned over at short odds here on his latest start, but it was still a run that suggested there was mileage in his current mark and he’s taken to gain a second success.
Top of the list is Marco Botti’s Wolverhampton winner RISING STAR, who has leading claims on her clear second behind an odds-on rival at Lingfield 12 days ago and is open to further progress on this step up to 1m.
Party Spirit has not kicked on from the close call at Ayr on her debut in July, but she chased home a subsequent winner over this trip at Ripon last time and looks the main danger with Silvestre De Sousa booked on this return to all-weather.
There are several potential improvers in the field, with Baby Sham, Surprise Picture and Study The Stars all capable of better over this trip.
MAY NIGHT (NAP) won very well here last week though, and he’s the one to beat despite a penalty and stronger opposition.
Mark Johnston’s Mister Allegro would have obvious claims if in the same form as for his course and distance win last week.
Bannergirl has hinted at ability in two runs over 6 furlongs and should improve for this trip, while Gordonstoun kept on well to land a Lingfield nursery last month and isn’t fully exposed himself.
FULL MARKS still looked to be learning the job here last week though, and it would come as no surprise to see him take a big step forward.
Crown Power and Utile make some appeal on pedigree, but John Gosden looks to hold a strong hand with newcomer Bubbling Up and clear form pick PRISMATIC representing the champion trainer.
The selection chased home a pair of useful fillies at Windsor last time and can get off the mark at the third attempt.
This is a drop in trip and grade for Persuasion, but he’s got plenty to prove after two heavy defeats this year.
Total Commitment should appreciate the return to this track and has place claims, while Typhoon Ten has been in form in recent times and ought to give another good account.
MOUNT MOGAN still isn’t fully exposed though, and he should benefit from the step back up in trip after a creditable run at Ascot over 5 furlongs last time.
A competitive handicap and it’s worth giving ONE HART another chance to build on last month’s Wolverhampton win.
Something clearly went amiss at Musselburgh last time, but he had run well up to that point and could bounce back.
Greycoat is a twice-raced handicap debutant and looks the biggest danger, while Eevilynn Drew is interesting back on an artificial surface.
A decent staying handicap in which the three to concentrate on should be Thai Power, who promises to enjoy this step up in distance, the progressive Lismore and the hat-trick seeking DEPOSIT.
Narrow preference is for David Simcock’s runner, who was awarded victory in the stewards’ room last time but would probably have won anyway had he not been impeded.
He should have more to give off this 4lb higher mark.
