3/1

His yard are in rude health at the moment and he showed that he is capable of winning races still when finishing second last time out especially as he's very well handicapped on his old form. Steps back 4f in trip here though and his attitude in a finish has to be questioned after his last run.

4/6

Going through a really good spell at the moment with his last four runs at the track reading 1221 (all over 1m3f). He now steps up to 1m4f (has won over this far) off a 4lb higher mark in a bid to improve that record and has a major chance of doing so.

Only see here once before when finishing 9th before she joined this yard for whom she has had just the one run on the turf at Catterick. No doubt that she can be effective off this mark (has won off higher) but still questions to answer on this unique surface.

8/1

A record of 0/21 hardly inspires and neither does her previous run here where she ran poorly to finish 6th over 1m6f. Out of the handicap again she comes into this off a laboured effort having been tried in a first-time visor (retained) last time out.

Did a little better than of late when plugging on to finish 4th over C&D last time out despite looking none too keen to do so. Just out of the handicap here and off a basement mark he's not one to rave about but could plug on into a place again.

His two wins here (one over C&D) are now back in the mists of time and none of his recent efforts would inspire you to back him. Has shown very little in his last four/five starts here and looks a hard and less than straightforward ride.

0/24 are her career statistics with a record of 0/11 here and once again she has to run from out of the handicap with little to recommend her. Stepped up markedly in trip here she still looks outclassed even in this low-grade affair.

Betting

Forecast

Star Ascending (4/6), Spiritoftomintoul (3/1), Oyster Card (8/1), Clayton Hall (10/1), Monzino (40/1), Anne's Valentino (50/1), Red Shanghai (100/1)

Verdict

Not much to recommend any of these runners apart from a couple and STAR ASCENDING really ought to be able to win again having been handed a very simple task here if he repeats his recent form. Spiritoftomintoul looks to be the main danger given his decent run last time but he has form figures of 577 here and his finishing effort last time out left plenty to be desired. Most of the others make little appeal but Clayton Hall did manage to plug on to finish 4th last time and a repeat of that run might see him go one place better here in what is a very unappealing betting heat.
