Plenty of these are open to improvement and in a notably trappy affair, EQUITY RISK looks to have plenty of ticks in the right boxes. A winner of three of his four starts so far, he coped with softer conditions at Haydock but faster ground looks to be his forte and with a top rider in the saddle, he gets his chance off a light racing weight. Ninjago has to shoulder top weight but he has the ability to carry it. A Listed winner at Ascot, he performed far better in the Jersey Stakes than his finishing position suggests. Moviesta has taken a hand in some of the big Northern handicaps this season and wasn't far away at York last month. He finished ahead of Heaven's Guest on that occasion but Richard Fahey's inmate will be 4lb better off today. Robot Boy hails from an in-form yard and landed some tasty bets at Windsor, while Regal Dan hasn't had a lot of racing this term and a move for the Charlie Hills' runner would be significant on his return from absence.
