KING'S CAPER has improved with each outing to date and although he's tasked with conceding weight all around, having picked up a penalty for scoring over the extended 7f at Beverley, the son of New Approach could improve for the extra yardage and rates the one to beat. The main dangers may be lurking among the newcomers and any money for either Manzo Duro or Arch Moon would be worth heeding.

He has won three times from 5f to 7f on good ground. Finished 3 1/2l behind Betsey Trotter when fourth of 9 at 15-2 on his latest outing at Redcar over 6f (good) earlier this month. Runs from 3lb out of handicap.

Came good for this yard at Ayr in June. Latest fourth at Redcar shows he's still in good form but looks to have a bit on his plate here from 3 lb out of the handicap.

FLYING PURSUIT has winning track-and-trip form in the book and has now dropped 5lb lower than when striking at York last summer. Tim Easterby's gelding could better his last effort at Thirsk now back over his optimum distance. Alaadel was narrowly beaten by Dalton on testing ground at Nottingham on his seasonal bow and appears fairly handicapped, while Pipers Note cannot be ignored on his favourite stomping ground, though he ideally prefers faster conditions.

ETON COLLEGE suffered from an awkward start when last of 14 in a nursery at Glorious Goodwood, though he'd won on his handicap bow at Ascot prior to that and rates the one to beat on these terms. Ventura Lightning struck over 5f on debut at Thirsk and may improve for this additional furlong, while any money for newcomer Borsdane Wood, whose dam hails from the same family as Mayson, would be notable.
