BACHOTHEQUE's form behind Blaine and Rosdhu Queen in July has worked out well and he came good on soft ground at Carlisle last month, finding plenty when push came to shove. He looks very well treated here on his handicap debut and should take all the beating. Rio's Pearl landed the odds in a Kempton maiden last month but this is much more competitive while Haydock winner Tharawal Lady tackles 6f for the first time. Majestic Moon is preferred to more exposed stablemate Woodland Mill and could go well but Scentpastparadise may need quicker ground and Bravo Youmzain is still struggling to get his head in front. Yourartisonfire may be best of the rest as neither of the Kevin Ryan runners, Luck nor Projectisle, ran well last time.
