Back a horse in the 4.10 Sky Bet Stayers' Handicap simply by clicking their odds below.
THUNDER storm. Was a good second in May's Yorkshire Cup but has been below par since including when outclassed in the Goodwood version latest. Ryan Moore takes over on this drop in class but he needs his best.
HOLD on. Hasn't won for two years and hasn't looked his old self this season including when down the field at Goodwood latest. Wouldn't be a shock for him to bounce back from his falling mark.
NEEDS Mor. Was hampered when finishing well in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock over 1m4f and he's Group performer at best. He stays but it's three years since the veteran's last win.

MASTER MILLINER 4
MASTER class. Impressive winner over 2m4f at Goodwood 19 days ago and a 5lb rise for that seems fair enough. Has won a couple of times over this course and distance and is clearly a stayer on the up. Won't be far away.
ROCK EAGLE 3
ROCK solid. Was a good second at Newbury before no luck in running at Ascot latest. He looks on a fair handicap mark and goes on any ground. Each-way player.
RED VERDON 3
RED alert. Ran better than seventh place suggests in the Shergar Cup at Ascot last week but a 1lb rise seems harsh. He stays well and Ed Dunlop is in decent form so he could run into the frame.
ALFRED BOUCHER 5
KING Alfred. He's been in cracking form since moving to canny Ian Williams with close seconds in good company at Chester. He met trouble in running both times, including when just behind Soapy Stevens who had a clear run. He can turn that form around.
SOAPY STEVENS 4
SOAP star. Won well at Chester and Newmarket before another excellent effort at Goodwood last time out. He gets on well with Franny Norton and is still only 4lb higher than his Newmarket win two starts ago. Right in the hunt again.
MAX a factor. Back to form when winning over this trip at the Shergar Cup last week and a 2lb rise is fair. Stays well and could figure even though this looks a bit tougher than Ascot.
ZOFF and on. Ran well until his stamina gave out over 2m4f at Goodwood after a good Newcastle win and tight third at Newmarket. He's on a fair weight and will be much happier dropped to this trip.
FRANK needs rain. Back from a year off when third in a decent handicap over course and distance in May but hasn't been out since. Her best form has come on soft ground and he'd be an each-way player should it rain.
PRAI for more. He has shown some promise including when second at Newmarket over 1m6f last time. He is back from the same mark in what looks a tougher race here so needs to improve but he has the scope to do that.
HAVE a chance. Has been in decent form on the AW and was a good second behind Zoffee in the Northumberland Vase before a close-up third again at Newcastle latest. He's well handicapped if repeating that form back on turf.
RED FLYER 1
FLYER grounded. Beaten in a photo by Soapy Stevens at HQ before not seeming to handle Goodwood last time. He's still 7lb above his last win so needs to improve at this level.
MONSIEUR LAMBRAYS 1
LAMB to the slaughter. First past the post in a minor contest here in June but lost in the Stewards' Room. Has been below par twice since then and this looks a tall order.
IT'S Alfred the great in the Stayers' Handicap (4.10 York).
ALFRED BOUCHER has turned over a new leaf since joining shrewd Ian Williams who has upped him in trip. He's been an unlucky second twice at Chester and can go one better on this fairer track with champion-elect William Buick on board.
Soapy Stevens was a place ahead when they met on the Roodee but had a clearer run. He'll be competitive again along with Master Milliner who tanked along when scoring at Goodwood.
At a big price, Withhold is just the type to hit the frame at a track where he's run well before.
