CASPIAN PRINCE left behind a couple of below-par performances this season when third in the Coral Charge at Sandown last weekend and is considered a leading contender now eased into Listed company. Copper Knight has been in fine order this season and should be snapping at the selection's heels at a venue where he rarely runs a bad race. Grade dropper Emblazoned is respected, while the admirably consistent Final Venture cannot be left out of calculations either.

GOLD MOUNT accounted for Raheen House (second) over this course and distance four weeks ago and that form is worth following here. Both horses were making their debuts for new yards on that occasion, and it would be surprising if there wasn't more to come from the pair. The selection is being aimed at the Melbourne Cup and could do with scoring again to keep that dream alive. Weekender was second in the Ebor here in August and is another to consider.

ESCOBAR produced his best performance of the season when second at Sandown last time. He bumped into a useful opponent on that occasion, but could pick up some compensation here off a 1lb higher mark with a top jockey employed in the saddle. Rise Hall arrives in good form and is respected, while the consistent Masham Star should give his usual solid account. Crownthorpe was unlucky at Newcastle last month, but was in peak condition before that and is considered.
