Disappointing in the main since winning over 1m1f at Hamilton (good-to-firm) in August last year and others make more appeal with a wide draw another negative.

Stepped up on recent efforts when finishing runner-up over 1m2f at Chelmsford earlier this month. Return to 1m4f not certain to suit and has to prove she handles this surface.

Couple of decent placed efforts for this yard during the summer but disappointed at Bath (1m2f, good) when last in action. Return to 1m4f should suit from 1lb out of the handicap on fibresand and stable debut.

Betting

Forecast

Topamichi (3/1), Serenity Now (9/2), My Renaissance (6/1), Mister Showman (8/1), Star Ascending (8/1), Gold Merlion (12/1), London Glory (12/1), Treble Strike (14/1), Bob's Boy (16/1), Lord Franklin (20/1), Stand Guard (28/1), Aumerle (33/1), Rupert Boy (50/1), Eugenic (66/1)

Verdict

SERENITY NOW boasts some good form at this venue and Brian Ellison's charge can step up on his promising effort on turf last time out by coming out on top in the concluding race on the card. My Renaissance has already won twice at this track this year and he can claim second on this occasion while Topamichi who showed signs of a return to form on his second start for this stable last time out is another to consider today.
