There might still be a bigger performance in Island Of Life, who finished strongly for a close third after a sluggish start at Wolverhampton a week ago and remains quite lightly raced. However, she's now been a beaten favourite three consecutive times and is creeping up the weights for her troubles. Captain Lars has been well placed to collect a spate of AW wins since the autumn and somehow remains on a workable mark, but front-runner BOSHAM also has a very impressive AW strike-rate and might be the answer.[Chris Wilson]

Came good at Sandown (5f, good to firm; first-time tongue-tie) in June, her second handicap, and has run well in defeat on all three subsequent appearances, most recently when finishing well for close third on AW debut at Wolverhampton a week ago; 2lb higher now and outside draw not ideal today, but still commands respect.

Has done all his winning over 5f on Polytrack, three times here; last week's C&D fourth was perfectly respectable, but he's yet to match his peak form for new stable this year.

Completed quick hat-trick in low-grade company on stiff turf tracks in spring and was very creditable fifth of 17 from out of the weights in valuable event at the Curragh in late June; certainly didn't run badly at Ascot on latest run; now needs to transfer his improvement back to Polytrack; withdrawn after bolting to start at Chester late last month.

Not as good as he once was and hasn't won for nearly two years but stayed on for creditable third at Goodwood (5f, good) ten days ago and is also suited by this C&D.

Has collected nine AW wins since the autumn, most of them in plating company; posted sound effort when third off 1lb higher mark in C&D handicap last month and was just ahead of Island Of Life when close second at Wolverhampton a week ago; an obvious one for the shortlist.

Won three times during the winter (once over C&D); handicapper seems to have his measure now but May's close second at Lingfield (5f, AW) was a good effort, and subsequent turf defeat is probably best overlooked (raced too keenly in first-time blinkers).

Front-runner who has excellent 11-32 AW strke-rate, with five of the wins gained over C&D; probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but recent turf efforts were good enough to suggest he'll made a bold bid back here.

Two AW wins off slightly lower marks in early part of this year, the first gained over C&D; seemed to go off the boil in the spring, though, and made low-key return from break when seventh of nine here on Saturday.
