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

Has until his last run been in good heart over this C&D winning off a mark of 51 in December (beat Something Lucky) and running well after that until his last start. Given his previous form here he would have to be given a chance to bounce back here.

Looks a quirky customer and looked as though he was making a habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory until winning last time out having been just touched off over C&D the day before. Needs kid glove treatment to be able to win but has to be taken seriously under a 6lb penalty.

Snapped a lengthy losing sequence under an attacking ride here a few starts ago seeing of a couple of in-form sorts off a lowly mark. Not quite in the same form in two runs since (one over further) but capable on his day over this C&D.

Has won over C&D in the past and may deserve a little extra credit for grabbing third last time out over C&D (raced in the wrong part of the track and away from principals). Has to prove he can back that run up but ought to be better positioned this time around.

Long standing maiden who acts on this surface but always looks to run to the same level and it's not hard to find a couple that should be able to beat her here. A place may well be the best she can hope for to add to her Fibresand record that reads 44244.

Has had just the one run here so far finishing third on that occasion and hardly looking to improve for the switch to this surface. This is a slight drop in grade and the handicapper has dropped her 2lb but others still make more appeal.

Like Roy's Legacy he raced away from the main action when finishing 4th here last time out and that run may be a little better than it first appears. Blinkers now go on for the first time and it will be interesting to see if he can improve again although he has work to do with Something Lucky.

From a yard that do well with their sprinters and those that they run here they will need to find a lot more improvement out of this one. Showed very little first time out over C&D on her first run for the yard and can only be watched here.

Forecast

Something Lucky (13/8), Furni Factors (5/1), Coiste Bodhar (6/1), Dazeekha (6/1), Archie Stevens (7/1), Roy's Legacy (7/1), Cool Baby (10/1), Excellent World (14/1), Elegant Joan (25/1)

Verdict

A tricky little sprint that should be run at a good pace and several of these have met before. Something Lucky is the obvious candidate here with connections looking to have finally found the key to him last time out when he was delivered right on the line at Lingfield. He’ll no doubt travel well again having shown he acts on this surface but does need a perfect delivery and a chance is taken with the blinkered first time FURNI FACTORS who raced in the wrong part of the track last time yet still finished a creditable 4th. Roy’s Legacy also suffered under the same conditions and he to can be given a chance along with the likes of Coiste Bodhar and Archie Stevens.
