NEW! A 'WS' icon means the horse has had wind surgery to improve its breathing since its last run.

Form has been in general decline over the past 12 months. No recent signs of an imminent return to form but dropped in grade on a track where she has gone well in the past.

Hit form last winter but he has dropped below his last winning mark and is struggling to rediscover his best form. Last of 14 when last seen and off two months since.

Escapes a penalty for landing an apprentice race last week. Has two wins and a place from four starts here so good reason to expect another big run.

Not beaten far on handicap debut after hanging down the straight. Visor fitted this time and dropped a couple of pounds, but still has a lot to find.

Goes well here and better suited to this trip than the 1m4f he just failed to see out last time. Well handicapped at present and yard continue in good form.

All three victories have come in this class so encouraging to see her back at this level for he first time since her last success. Particularly poor last time though and that run makes her harder to fancy.

Won a couple for Jonathan Portman but well beaten on all starts for her new yard, including last four when beaten an aggregate of 239L. Off since July and the market will indicate if connections have got her back on track.

Record of 3-55 shows how difficult he is to catch right. Needs a good gallop and no promise of that, so hard to envisage him winning.

In good form lately but up in the weights now and better suited to slower surfaces than this. Makes her debut on this circuit and she has a few too many questions to answer.

Appeared to have found his level when dropped in the weights and grade before finishing third at Salisbury. Well beaten since though and AW record is unappealing.

Has the pedigree but not the ability to match. Improved recently to actually finish ahead of one or two rivals but he remains a poor individual who is set to struggle once more.

Forecast

Attain (11/4), Pink Ribbon (7/2), Squire (9/2), Ingleby Spring (6/1), Runaiocht (7/1), Luxford (11/1), Yogiyogiyogi (14/1), Miss Minuty (16/1), Beast (20/1), Genuine Approval (33/1), Aspasius (50/1), Moorea (100/1)

Verdict

Pink Ribbon and ATTAIN clashed here recently in a race won by Music Major. The selection was 3L behind today's rival but is 4lb better off and was returning from a break. A bold effort since over 1m4f suggests the veteran retains ability and that he has indeed improved for the run. Pink Ribbon has scored since at Wolverhampton and escapes a penalty. The pair have the pick of the recent form in this and make more appeal than Ingleby Spring who would appear better suited to slower ground. Genuine Approval, Luxford and Yogiyogiyogi would be interesting if attracting support, but Miss Minuty may be a bigger danger. The topweight is dropped significantly in grade and that could be a precursor to an improved effort.
