12/1

Winner on debut at Fakenham (fairly treated on that) but showed a different side at Cheltenham when last seen, unruly both pre-race and unseated at the start. Hood tried now, clearly has ability but temperament now under question.

Did well on seasonal debut recently, finishing third at Newbury in what looked a competitive event beforehand. Got tired late there, so may well come on a bit for that, and if getting this new trip, looks one to take seriously.

9/4

Winner here last year and has given notice a couple of times this winter that his turn may not be far away again. No cheekpieces here, but has run well without them before, so with no trip or ground worries, holds place chances at worst.

Found plenty for pressure to score at Musselburgh last time, and looked the winner of that some way out, so 5lb rise looks more than fair. Slight question as to whether he will produce his best on this ground, so on that, others make more appeal.

Faced a very hard task on debut at Sandown for this yard last month, and unsurprisingly found things a bit tough. This is easier but he still needs to find more, and this trip asks another new question too.

Has only completed once in five starts for the yard, and now cheekpieces given a try. Suspicion is that when he puts it together there's a good run in him, so market needs a check, but on what he's shown so far, hard to fancy.

Did much better when second at Fontwell last time, finding only the useful Lisp too good, and she looks nicely handicapped on that. Should improve, ground looks no problem either, so could easily get herself on the podium.

10/1

Winner of this under very similar ground conditions a year ago (from 3lb lower) but that effort stands out like a beacon in a sea of otherwise moderate efforts. Can clearly bounce back under conditions that suit, but very risky now.

6/1

Often well supported and did come good at Wincanton last February, handicapper had his say but still looks capable from this mark. Only just denied latest and his stamina will come in useful here. Not discounted, with ground no issue.

Betting

Forecast

Quids In (9/4), Spectator (4/1), Arden Denis (6/1), Max Do Brazil (8/1), Final Choice (8/1), Transient Bay (10/1), Ceporine (12/1), Angel of Harlem (12/1), Agincourt Reef (14/1), Dartagnan Le Dun (33/1)

Verdict

ANGEL OF HARLEM is taken to make all here. She turned in a much better effort against an improving horse last time out and with the promise of more to come, she might take some pegging back if allowed an easy lead. Final Choice was another to put a good effort in, and may have been disadvantaged in the latter stages at Newbury as he raced away from the action. Arden Denis frequently sees plenty of support and may reward e/w backers again here. Quids In needs a second look as well.
