HAKU posted a career-best performance when upped to this trip for the first time at Southwell, where he was narrowly denied. Mark Loughnane's charge doesn't look overburdened by a 3lb rise in the weights and a similar display could see him go one better. Sean Levey takes the ride aboard handicap debutant Lovers' Lane, who could take a marked step forward on what he's shown so far. How Hard Can It Be is capable of mounting a serious challenge too.
Prediction : 1st Haku 2nd Lovers Lane 3rd How Hard Can It Be

In an open event, a chance is taken on RUBY RED EMPRESS. Sean Curran's five-year-old was perhaps unsuited by heavy ground at Newbury last time out and the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor returns to a synthetic surface off 1lb below her last winning mark. Land Of Eagles is beginning to look attractively handicapped and he can't be ruled out despite his wide draw, while the lightly-raced Crafty Lady remains open to plenty of improvement.
Prediction : 1st Ruby Red Empress 2nd Land Of Eagles 3rd Crafty Lady

TWILIGHT REVENGE and Hayley Turner left it late when scoring over C&D earlier this month and, though a rise in class demands more, Mark Usher's gelding could repeat the dose. Satin Snake wasn't disgraced on his first start for Adrian Keatley and he's well treated if able to rediscover the form he showed when trained in Ireland. Similarly, Free Solo has tumbled down the weights in recent times and is no forlorn hope.
Prediction : 1st Twilight Revenge 2nd Satin Snake 3rd Free Solo

Seas Of Elzaam landed a gamble on his return from a break when winning over 6f at Wolverhampton in July and warrants respect on his reappearance. However, a 5lb rise will make life tougher for the John Butler-trained charge and a race-fit DESERT BOOTS may have his measure after posting two solid efforts since returning from a 483-day absence. Kensington Agent is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Desert Boots 2nd Seas Of Elzaam 3rd Kensington Agent

AZURE ANGEL improved from first to second start when scoring at Newcastle last month and the drop back in trip should not inconvenience her as she looks to follow up under a 7lb penalty. Topo Chico has gone close the last twice over further and deserves a change in luck, while Insolente is one to note on her first start for new connections.
Prediction : 1st Azure Angel 2nd Topo Chico 3rd Insolente

A tentative vote goes to BALANCE PLAY, who showed up well on his debut at Nottingham last month despite dwelling at the start. With improvement expected here, Ralph Beckett's charge can get the better of Chelmsford winner Nails Murphy and Savvy Brilliance, who got the hang of things late on at Wolverhampton. Of the newcomers, Brightly and Dragon Icon stand out for top connections.
Prediction : 1st Balance Play 2nd Nails Murphy 3rd Savvy Brilliance

Narrowly denied over C&D last time out when short of room at a crucial stage, NAP HAND can gain compensation here. The son of Fast Company proved he stays the mile on that occasion and is likely to be ridden with plenty of confidence now. Uncle is likely to improve on a career-best effort at Doncaster, while Loyal Touch is better than what he showed at Ayr in September.
Prediction : 1st Nap Hand 2nd Loyal Touch 3rd Uncle

CASH hasn't been seen since April this year but was denied victory by a short head in a Group 3 at Sandown on that occasion by none other than Westover, who subsequently bolted up in the Irish Derby in June. He gets 2lb from Tinker Toy and is expected to go very close. Roger Varian's inmate won a Listed race back in March and has to be feared, while Dhabab is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Cash 2nd Tinker Toy 3rd Dhabab

Tralee Hills drops in class following a disappointing run at Newcastle earlier this month and can step up in first-time blinkers, but WANNABE BRAVE has been progressive recently and recorded a much-improved third on his latest outing over this C&D. Tin Fandango bolted up at Newbury last time and should not be taken lightly on his return to the all-weather.
Prediction : 1st Wannabe Brave 2nd Tin Fandango 3rd Tralee Hills
