SHAHBAZ went agonisingly close to getting off the mark at Newcastle last month and with the fourth coming out and winning since, Charlie Fellowes' colt can gain compensation here today. Hover On The Wind bumped into a good one when second at Yarmouth last time, but he was clear of the rest so looks capable of getting involved if handling the all-weather surface, while Roman Spring is a newcomer from the Richard Hannon team who has some fancy entries and he should be monitored very closely in the market.
Prediction : 1st Shahbaz 2nd Roman Spring 3rd Hover On The Wind

MR FUSTIC hasn't looked the same horse on turf as he does on the all-weather, so he can put his disappointment at Epsom behind him last time and get back on track here. Andi Brown's gelding was going for the hat-trick after winning twice at Wolverhampton, so he can hopefully reward his supporters once again. Boulivar is another who has disappointed on turf the last twice, but he could go well back on the all-weather, while Mr Trick also should be considered in an open-looking contest.
Prediction : 1st Mr Fustic 2nd Boulivar 3rd Mr Trick

TWILIGHT SECRET was an impressive winner at Wolverhampton on Friday and, off the same mark today, he could take some stopping if in the same form. Cooperation goes for the hat-trick after a quick-fire double at Nottingham earlier this month, but on this different surface he looks opposable. Miss Bella Brand could be the one to chase the selection home after she won over C&D last month and with a 5lb rise looking manageable, she can go close once again
Prediction : 1st Twilight Secret 2nd Miss Bella Brand 3rd Cooperation

OPEN MIND won on his only previous visit to this track, over this trip, and has held his form admirably since that success in April. The drop back to 6f and switch to all-weather might prove key to Saeed bin Suroor's charge, who remains on a workable mark of 84. Aphelios might not be done improving yet and is interesting, not least because James Doyle takes the ride on his stable debut for these connections. Bear Profit is another to note.
Prediction : 1st Open Mind 2nd Aphelios 3rd Bear Profit

SOOGHAN looks the type who could be open to plenty of improvement. Following three creditable efforts in novice/maiden company on turf, Simon and Ed Crisford's charge broke his duck on the all-weather at Southwell, showing a likeable attitude close home, and a mark of 81 doesn't look beyond him on handicap debut now he's upped markedly in trip. The dangers are distance scorer Duty Bound and course winner Haarar.
Prediction : 1st Sooghan 2nd Duty Bound 3rd Haarar

20:05 Chelmsford City

SMART CONTENDER contested some warm novice/maiden races earlier in the season at Newmarket and Newbury and is expected to be competitive off 72 in a handicap of this nature. He'll have to improve on his first handicap effort at Hamilton latest but the step back up in distance and switch to all-weather might just be the answer. Boasty is a consistent type and brings winning C&D form to the table, so he's noted along with Engrave.
Prediction : 1st Smart Contender 2nd Boasty 3rd Engrave
