Keith Dalgleish won this race last year and has strong claims again today with GAELIC SECRET, who made a bright start when a good third over 6f at Catterick earlier in the month and showed the required early speed to suggest this drop in trip will be beneficial. Likewise West Way Never, who weakened late on after travelling strongly in a 6f maiden at York in July and should have more to offer now. Amazing Anna stepped up on her debt when going close at odds of 150/1 at Beverley 12 days ago and will be given much more respect by the layers this time.

Made it 3-3 over C&D when landing 12-runner handicap (11/2) 8 days ago. Blinkers fitted now and this is tougher under 5 lb penalty but course record makes her hard to ignore.

She has won three times at 5f on good to soft and soft ground. A winner at 11-2 over this course and distance (good to soft) on her latest outing earlier this month, beating Laoise by a neck. Carries a 5lb penalty today for that success. Has won 3 times here this season.

The decision to turn out ECONOMIC CRISIS quickly under a 4lb penalty looks a wise one, as the handicapper is unlikely to pull any punches given the manner in which he won going away from the reopposing Ventura Flame over C&D last Monday and Alan Berry's in-form veteran can complete the hat-trick with a similar performance. Montalvan also carries a penalty after winning well last week, over 6f at Redcar, and is a previous C&D winner, so looks a big danger to the selection. Quanah has been threatening to score and is no forlorn hope.

LE CHIFFRE has remained in good heart since scoring over the extended mile here with ease in early July, posting three good efforts in defeat and a 1lb drop in the ratings gives David O'Meara's gelding a fine chance to get back on the winning trail. Course specialist Granite City Doc has recorded two victories here this summer and, having gone well the last twice, should give another good account. A tumbling mark helps Dark Lochnagar and Archaeology is better than he showed at Thirsk last time.

SMEATON posted a C&D success in July and is now back down to a mark just 3lb above that victory, with his tumbling mark enabling him to sneak in off top weight today as he drops in class. That is enough to earn him the vote ahead of Moxy Mares, who has also slipped to a feasible rating, and Star Of Valour, who has been running consistently well since the resumption of racing.
