Had three wins from seven starts last year for George Baker, struggled to land a blow this term in pair of runs for this handler. Down in class here, bounce back possible.

All three career wins have come on the AW and doesn't appear as comfortable on turf. Twice been well beaten here over 7f in the past.

Gelded in December, form has not really picked up as a result. All three wins have come over 5f but, having been rated 94 on the Flat a year ago, he's now dropped 25lb and must be considered on that basis.

Filly ran fine race here in June on good to firm, since been highly-tried on turf at Newmarket and Ascot and returns to this track 11lb lower as a result. Soft ground should be fine and can have a say in this seemingly.

Filly has won previous two starts on turf at Brighton (7f) and Lingfield (6f) both on good to soft ground. 10lb higher than when narrowly denied here last month over 7f as a result but not ruled out.

Lightly-raced Redcar maiden winner on soft ground over this trip in October 2015, problems mean she's only run twice since. Well held at Pontefract before switching to this yard and booking of De Sousa is notable.

Betting

Forecast

North Creek (11/4), Dream Bounty (3/1), Blazed (9/2), Ocean Temptress (11/2), Quatrieme Ami (15/2), Soaring Spirits (8/1), Robbian (14/1), Reedanjas (16/1), Mossy's Lodge (25/1), Drop Kick Murphi (40/1)

Verdict

Handicap debutant Blazed has improved with each outing in maidens and has been found a decent starting place here while Quatrieme Ami has dropped so much in the ratings of late that he deserves consideration in this class. Ocean Temptress is seeking a third straight turf win but is 10lb higher than when just failing here over 7f last month, of more interest might be REEDANJAS, who ran well over C&D in June and returns rated 11lb lower having run in some much better races than this since. She should handle the softer ground and makes appal on these terms. Dream Bounty has had her problems, clearly, but is one to note on first start for Mick Appleby, for whom Silvestre De Sousa has an excellent 17% strike rate over the previous 12 months.
