Wufud made a pleasing reappearance at Goodwood when only beaten a nose. He’s only gone up 2lb but soft ground is an unknown. Astonished makes his debut on Turf having only won a Kempton maiden so far. Watheer finished tailed off at Redcar, though probably found 1m2f too far. Hammer Gun has won twice here this year and has plenty of winning form on the all-weather but has been well beaten in his only two previous runs on soft going. INTENSE STYLE (NAP) loves the mud and won off a higher mark at Chester in September so looks the one to be on.
