The majority of these are inconsistent so it's probably a question of who turns up on the day. The one who has produced a more consistent run of form of late is HAYMARKET, a winner on his penultimate start at Ayr and not likely to prove inconvenienced by this drop in trip. He isn't a confident choice by any means but should be competitive on recent evidence. Catastrophe has yet to score in 18 starts but his latest effort represented an improvement after a low-key period and he's shortlisted. Cline also arrives in good nick after coming back to form with a course and distance success this month and should handle a 6lb rise for that win. He remains very lightly-raced on Turf so is hard to assess accurately. Let Right Be Done was another to find some winning form the last day over 7f but is just at home over this distance.
