Form & Verdict
Multiple winner down the years but age has looked to be catching up this season, with him dropping around a stone down the weights; has never been the most consistent and that remains the case but this is a bit easier than he's used to.

Usually seen over further than this with his only AW success coming over 2m; 18lb below his last winning mark, but recent efforts don't suggest he is ready to take advantage; visor the headgear of choice this time.

Form & Verdict
At his best this time last year, including in victory here, and turned in a string of consistent efforts this season before being pestered in front when returned to 1m2f at Pontefract last time; cheekpieces replaced by first-time tongue-tie and yard in decent nick.

Justified favouritism on his comeback here in the spring but then turned over at odds-on over C&D before a poor effort in first-time cheekpieces last month; has something to prove switched to blinkers.

Form & Verdict
Ran up a four-timer in the spring/early summer, climbing 25lb up the weights; wasn't best suited by the way the race unfolded last time but that was a second short-priced defeat on the spin and perhaps the handicapper has caught up now.

Wouldn't be bred for this sort of trip but she shaped as though a stiffer test would suit over 1m3f at Carlisle this month and remains open to improvement now handicapping at a sensible level.

Not bred for staying trips on dam's side but she looked a trier when staying on tenaciously into second over 1m6f at Yarmouth, then finished virtually alone when upped to 2m1f at Pontefract last week; dubious form but is unexposed; respected under penalty back on AW.

Trainer had seven winners from his last 13 runners; this one follows a well-trodden path, going right up in trip on his handicap debut/comeback having started big prices for three AW runs at 7f-1m last backend; cheekpieces on; market useful.

Gold Charm

Verdict

Sir Mark Prescott, who won this last year, is enjoying a typically productive July and his unexposed GORDONS AURA may be up to extending the good run now handicapping, upped in trip and fitted with headgear. Maggie's Delight is another open to improvement in a race in which none of the eight can be ruled out.[Graham Wheldon]
