Dark Power and Gaval are both in excellent form and respected but the vote goes to SCOFFLAW. Richard Fahey's gelding has run very well on both the previous occasions he's been ridden by 3lb claimer Adam McNamara and has been dropped 2lb since finishing a respectable third under another jockey at Thirsk recently. Pennsylvania Dutch needs to learn to settle but will probably be suited by today's drop back in trip and remains unexposed.[Chris Wilson]

Finished last of five on last month's seasonal debut but, with tongue-tie added, was clear-cut winner at Nottingham (6f, good to soft) 19 days ago; hit with 9lb rise for that but remains unexposed after only four starts.

Won his only 2yo start and was also successful when returning to action in Haydock handicap (6f, soft) in June, despite refusing to settle in early stages; below that form after fluffing the start at York (7f) last month but remains of interest.

Has displayed improvement to win twice over C&D in recent weeks, on soft and good ground; today's race represents a significant rise in grade but he needs to be taken very seriously in current mood.

Yet to prove he can cope with underfoot ease but posted sound effort when third at Thirsk (6f, good) eight days ago; subsequent 2lb drop in the weights helps, as does Adam McNamara's 3lb claim; could be the answer.

Seems very versatile regarding trip/ground and today's mark is probably not beyond him; ran better than finishing position (eighth) suggests at Haydock yesterday but others appeal more.

Two wins this year, the more recent at Bath (5f, good to soft) nine days ago; subsequent 3lb rise doesn't look excessive but today's race is more competitive and he still needs to prove he's effective over 6f.

Responded very well to first-time visor when winning comfortably at Newmarket (6f, good to soft) in June and reportedly lost a shoe when finishing last on soft ground there last month; goes without headgear here, though, and overall record remains unconvincing.

Posted by far his best of four runs for new stable this year when fourth in first-time hood at Doncaster (6f, soft) last month; struggled at Haydock yesterday and has it all to prove again now.
