FRENCH FLYER looked to have a very bright future ahead of him when making a winning debut over 6f here last month and he is taken to maintain his unbeaten record today. On breeding the step up in trip should not be a problem for the son of Pour Moi and may even bring about further improvement. Poet's Prince is an obvious threat based on his two second-placed finishes to date, while Gabrial The Devil is an each-way alternative.

LOMU has only tasted defeat once in his four starts to date and the form of his C&D win last month has been boosted with the fourth-placed horse winning next time out. With that in mind, a 2lb rise for that success appears to be extremely lenient and further progression may be forthcoming. Be Kool won a valuable contest at York two starts ago and he was far from disgraced when fourth at the same track last time out. All of the others have some sort of chance but Luis Vaz De Torres is the pick of them.

Plenty of these arrive here with claims but the preference is for SEA OF GREEN, whose consistency this year has to be admired. This will be her 16th start of 2017 but she showed how well she is with a close third-placed finish at Carlisle on Thursday and the daughter of Iffraaj is only 5lb higher than when successful over C&D last month. Duncan Of Scotland and Metisian are other in form participants to note, while Danish Duke and Specialv also have each-way claims.

LUCENT DREAM remains relatively lightly raced for a horse of his age and the son of Teofilo does appear to be progressive. A win at Carlisle in June was followed by a neck defeat over C&D eight days ago and he arrives here 3lb well in this afternoon. Gerry The Glover has been knocking hard on the door of late and he should be thereabouts today, while Konig Dax and Rubis also make the shortlist.

Respectable second of 5 in handicap at Ripon (8f, good to firm) last month, but overall record (1 win from 32) is rather off-putting.

A winner at 1m on the all-weather. Beaten 4l by Cosmic Ray when second of 5 at 11-2 on his latest outing at Ripon over 1m (good) last month.

ROYAL SHAHEEN has yet to win since switching from Andreas Wohler's yard in Germany last year, but he ran a solid race over C&D off this mark last time and a first-time visor might spark the required improvement. Jumira Prince also sports new headgear and could leave his disappointing effort at Haydock behind as a result, while Billy Bond hinted at a return to form when second at Ripon last time and is 1lb lower in this.
