ANHAR can bounce back to form now connections dispense with the headgear and drop him back in trip. A flop in the shades at Goodwood needs forgetting but on his earlier beating of Bowdler's Magic at Haydock in July he would be a huge player in this field off a mark of 100 with the tongue-tie back in place. Times Up was disappointing at Ascot and it may be that his mark of 95 is now holding him back despite connections thinking plenty of him, and a bigger threat might be Yorgunnabelucky who chases a hat-trick after wins at Pontefract and Ascot, including for today's jockey Hayley Turner. This better ground will suit the enigmatic Porgy, Chilly Filly is yet to prove herself in big fields but she has loads of ability and represents a trainer with a great record in this race, whilst The Fonz and Dazzling Light are better than their latest runs would suggest. With Philip Robinson back on board Life And Soul rates the best of the remainder despite a new mark of 88.
