Stormy Road confirmed the promise of her debut second here by going one better at Brighton, although the form may not amount to a great deal and she has a penalty to contend with. Amorously stepped forward from her introduction to beat all bar a 100/1 stunner at Haydock, but EVER CHANGING jumps off the page. John Gosden's filly is out of the stable's dual Group 1 winner Rainbow View and won't need to be quite as precocious as she was to go close on debut.

Enhanced fine AW strike rate when making a winning debut for this yard at Laytown (7f). Evidently not quite the same force on turf, but handicapped accordingly in this sphere and he needs considering.

Has won eight races from 5f to 7f on good to soft ground and on the all-weather. Won on his latest outing when 10-11fav at Laytown over 7f earlier this month, beating Markhan by 1 3/4l.

Game Player got off the mark on the Lingfield all-weather but was previously well beaten on his handicap bow at Newbury so looks vulnerable off 1lb higher. Florencio formed part of Jamie Osborne's great day at Laytown and competes off the same rating, while Colonel Frank is up just 2lb for scoring at Yarmouth, but another chance is given to PERFECT HUSTLER because he took in a competitive Leicester handicap most recently and this may not be as warm.

AMANDINE failed to beat a rival home at Goodwood, but banished that to the memory with a back-to-form second at Ascot and she is taken to go one better on a course she went close at towards the end of July. Highland Pass so nearly backed up a Salisbury success over 7f here, and returning to this trip is in her favour. Forward Thinker has to be considered if turning out after Friday's Newcastle appearance, and Jousi is worth a glance in the market after a layoff.

Fine third in valuable Newbury handicap in July and easy to forgive rare below par display at Goodwood 11 days later. Runner-up in this race last year and another bold show anticipated.

Successful at 2m on soft ground and on the all-weather; has also won two hurdles. Well beaten at 11-2 behind Lil Rockerfeller when eighth of 14 on his latest outing at Goodwood over 2m 5f (good) last month.

Found just one too strong in handicaps at Chester and on the July course here during the summer, but latest effort not so good and she remains 4 lb above last winning mark.

She has won four times from 1m to 2m on good ground. Finished 11l behind Amourice when last of 5 at 4-1 on her latest outing at Newmarket over 1m 6f (good to firm) last month.

Lightly raced in recent times, but clearly goes well fresh having landed the same 16.5f Doncaster handicap in April that he won on his 2017 return. Worth considering, for all that this is tougher.

He has won three times at 2m on ground varying from good to firm to soft; has also won two hurdles. A winner at 10-1 at Doncaster over 2m (soft) on his latest outing in April, beating Montanna by a head.

Never in the hunt at Galway last time, but didn't shape at all badly in 2m handicap at the Curragh on penultimate start and he's of strong interest off a potentially handy mark for his shrewd yard.

He has won four times from 6f to 1m 7f on ground varying from good to firm to heavy; has also won a hurdle. Well beaten at 14-1 behind Uradel when 13th of 20 on his latest outing at Galway over 2m 1f (yielding) in July.

Winner of 3 of his 5 starts for this yard last season, but his mark inevitably suffered as a consequence and hasn't really threatened in a handful of runs this time round.

He has won three times at 1m 6f on good to firm ground and on the all-weather. Finished 7l behind Altra Vita when fourth of 7 at 4-1 on his latest outing at Ffos Las over 2m (soft) earlier this month.

Completed the hat-trick at Wolverhampton in August and nothing wrong with his latest effort in 2m Kempton handicap. His 4 efforts on turf haven't been overly inspiring, though.

He has won four times from 1m 4f to 2m on the all-weather. Third of 8 behind Gavlar beaten 2 3/4l at 10-1 on his latest outing at Kempton over 2m last month.

COEUR DE LION wasn't suited by the way the race was run at Glorious Goodwood and could never get competitive, but he previously put in excellent efforts at Chester, Royal Ascot and Newbury, and can regain the winning thread. Handiwork boasts a similar NH rating to Alan King's stayer and proved his mettle in this sphere when scoring at Doncaster back in April. Stars Over The Sea is another good jumper arriving on the back of good Flat form, while Tony Martin won't be sending Golden Spear over just for a day out.
