Back from a break for a new stable recently, this Wolverhampton specialist has also had recent wind surgery. Rated 6lb higher than when successful in this race in 2017, but should go very well for the same rider.

His optimum trip around this particular track is 7f (two time winner in March 2016), so whilst he's handicapped to be competitive, he might be found wanting for stamina. Didn't see out the 7f trip here last month (led).

There or thereabouts over 7f here lately without necessarily threatening to win a race. Shaped as if a step up in trip is worth trying when finishing 3¼L fourth of ten to Herm latest.

Has won just once in 20 career starts (7f at Lingfield in May 2016), but was beaten just a neck when third to Lucky Lodge on his penultimate start (7f). Not so sharp last week, and has stamina concerns to address.

C&D winner for Ian Williams back in October 2014. Hasn't done an awful lot of racing since winning a 7f Lady Amateur Riders event at Salisbury in April (firm), but an easing in the weights can only be helpful.

She's probably regressing rather than progressing, with her sole career success coming on the Fibresand at Southwell back in January 2017 (1m). Beaten 4½L when third to Monsieur Jimmy at Southwell recently (1m).

Not with this trainer for all that long following a poor spell of form over hurdles for Barbara Butterworth. However, nothing to draw encouragement from a trio of recent AW runs (7f to 1m3f), and is best ignored despite a plummeting mark.

Now a 17 race maiden, with her current trainer seemingly unable to work his magic on her just yet. Beaten in a seller at Lingfield in July (1m2f), so it'll be a major surprise if she's good enough despite the benefit of a break.

Hasn't won since June (6f soft), but has a string of solid enough recent placed efforts on his CV, and has no issues with this C&D. 2lb higher than when beaten a short-head by Touch The Clouds at Chelmsford in mid January (1m).

Formerly with David O'Meara, but made a winning stable/handicap debut when upped in trip to 1m at Southwell last month (kept on strongly). 6lb higher now, but of definite interest assuming her rider can maintain a positive early racing position.

Now a 21 race AW maiden, and she has put together a trio of much lesser efforts since finishing 2L second to Secret Lightning over C&D in December. Others preferred.

A 24 race maiden (all codes) who generally doesn't appear to be flying anywhere too fast. Back on the Flat for the first time in a while at Lingfield last month when a keeping on 1¾L third to Presence Process (1m).

Finished in the frame (well beaten) at Southwell in December, but has been campaigned over hurdles since. Tries the Wolverhampton experience for the first time (blinkered), but tough to be confident about this 11 race career maiden.

Betting

Forecast

Dose (4/1), Beatbybeatbybeat (4/1), Gabrial The Thug (4/1), Port Soif (8/1), Satchville Flyer (9/1), Kafoo (9/1), Almanack (10/1), Jeremy's Jet (11/1), Misu Pete (14/1), Sevilla (20/1), Sheer Intensity (33/1), Pentito Rap (33/1), Scrutiny (66/1)

Verdict

Strong in numbers, and almost certain to be strongly competed for, but a race where jockey-ship will play a significant part. PORT SOIF looks the type of horse capable of running up a sequence for the ever astute Kenneth Slack, and assuming his inexperienced rider can hold a positive early position, this filly will take some stopping given her forward momentum at the end of her race at Southwell. 2017 winner Gabrial The Thug is the most obvious danger under the go-to rider Simon Walker, and he should strip fitter for a recent first spin for his new trainer Patrick Morris.
