As to being a sorry bunch yesterday – well they all gave their running bar Eton Fables
Eton Fable who almost made all at Chester four days earlier, was denied the lead this time and endured a far from clear run. Trapped on the rail from half a mile out, he stayed on well once eventually switched into the clear, but it was all too late. He ran better than his finishing position suggests.

BETTING FORECAST: 6/4 Hilbre Court, 7/2 Rankayo Hitam, 6/1 Sistos Fascination, 13/2 Hasty Lady, 9/1 The Hoofer, 12/1 Micheals Boy, 16/1 Diktat Tempo, 25/1 Royal Tartan, 33/1 Alabjar, 40/1 Harlequinn Danseur

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: HILBRE COURT (nap) comes out with the best chance on adjusted BHA ratings despite conceding weight all round and he can confirm earlier Lingfield form with Rankayo Hitam

A claimer here not the ideal race type – Fav is 4/5 at present which augurs well

BETTING FORECAST: 15/8 Rose Street, 13/2 Suits Me, 7/1 Granston, Kingsdale Orion, 10/1 Eglevski, 12/1 Magic Echo, Motafarred, 14/1 Veiled Applause, 16/1 Harvest Warrior, 20/1 Charlie Tokyo, Intersky Charm, 33/1 Turfshuffle

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: ROSE STREET went into many notebooks on her reappearance and back on turf and up in trip, she can take care of a competitive if largely exposed field. Suits Me might be the one to chase her home

Progressive form and a noticeable price gap – negatives – 3 year old handicap

Softer ground today is a negative

Probably just Rose street for me today – confirmation via the live market incase there is a drift, as was the case with Eton Fables in the place market.
