RUNSWICK BAY bumped into a decent sort when second at Exeter earlier this month and could go one better here for Emma Lavelle. The five-year-old previously finished runner-up at the same track on his hurdles debut and, with Ben Jones back in the saddle claiming 3lb, it wouldn't be a surprise if the pair crossed the line in front. Dorking Lad was third in a good race at Sandown 18 days ago and could be worth following over the winter, while Confirmation Bias is likely better than what he showed at Ayr last month.

Nobel Joshua showed some promise when second at Exeter earlier this month, benefitting from a more prominent ride, and he could go close again under talented 7lb conditional Fergus Gillard. Frankie Baby is better than what he showed at Lingfield recently and could benefit from this return to further, but similar sentiments apply to ASK HENRY and he gets the vote. Fifth on handicap debut at Ascot last month, the seven-year-old is bred to enjoy this step up to 3m and has been dropped 2lb by the assessor since last seen.

Charlie Hills doesn't have many runners in this sphere so the presence of HIGH CHANGE in a modest field catches the eye. Third at Uttoxeter in July, the five-year-old wears blinkers for the first time and could be well treated off 113 on handicap debut. Peckinpah was third at Kempton earlier this month but might want a stiffer test, while First Quest and Lex Eleven are others fancied to be involved where it matters most.
