Back from a break over C&D last month when finishing a one paced fifth of eight to Maestro Mac. Dropped 3lb since, but remains a maiden after 11 attempts.

Last a winner for Ivan Furtado at Newcastle in November 2016 (1m2f), so whilst he's AW effective, it's been many a moon between drinks. Dropped 3lb since his latest start at Chelmsford in early December.

Southwell is his preferred AW venue with all three of his synthetics successes (7f to 1m) coming on the Fibresand. Didn't stay 1m3f latest, and down 2lb over this shorter trip.

Showed much improved form on his final start for Eve Johnson Houghton at Brighton in October when beaten narrowly by Break The Silence (1m soft). Sold for 4,500 gns and makes his stable debut off the same mark but wearing a tongue tie.

Performing woefully over hurdles for Phil Kirby when last in action during the late summer of 2017, and sold for just £1,200 in November. Back to the scene of his sole career Flat success (C&D) for Charlie Appleby in March 2015.

A mare who enjoys her racing at Wolverhampton and has been in largely competitive shape since joining from Richard Fahey (same ownership). Just 1lb above her last winning mark.

Strongest at Chelmsford, but also effective elsewhere, as demonstrated on his penultimate start at Newcastle (1m); beaten ½L by Limoncello. More reliable than some and feasibly handicapped. Has form-lines linked with Bell Heather.

Won a 1m2f+ Dundalk maiden for John Oxx in July 2016, but paid the price for those gains starting off life in handicap company from an unattractive mark. Never threatened to profit from a steadily declining mark on these shores, so safely ignored.

A winner of three races on the AW (7f to 1m), but woefully out of sorts at present, managing to beat only a single rival in his last five starts since mid December. No chance based on the strength of those efforts.

A useful juvenile who has found a new lease of life here lately. A winner of a C&D apprentices handicap for this rider eight days ago, he found the reduced trip just too sharp when beaten ¾L by American Patrol on Wednesday. Every chance.

A C&D winner for Dave Evans in April 2017, this filly logs on for just the third time for her new trainer Karen George. Absent since early December, she races from a falling mark, but needs to show more in order to leave an impression.

Probably didn't stay when upped markedly in trip at this course last time out (2m). Remains on the same mark for return to this more suitable trip and whilst he's an infrequent winner, he could conceivably have a say.

Betting

Forecast

Ravenhoe (2/1), My Fantasea (4/1), New Abbey Angel (13/2), Celtic Artisan (13/2), Captain Revelation (10/1), Bell Heather (11/1), Crystal Sunstone (14/1), Ready (16/1), Warofindependence (20/1), Log Off (28/1), Arabian Oasis (33/1), Kay Sera (33/1), Star Of The Stage (80/1)

Verdict

Not the strongest of races to conclude tonight's action, but a rather obvious looking potential winner arises in the shape of the Mark Johnston trained RAVENHOE. He was a useful horse as a juvenile, and he's appeared firmly back on track over the past week or so for this rider. Whilst he was unable to follow up last Friday's C&D success turned out over a furlong shorter trip here on Wednesday, he was probably only beaten by the reduced distance. Assuming he takes a third quick race in his stride (trainers stock are generally a hardy breed), he should find himself back in the winners enclosure. Of the remainder, Crystal Sunstone looks a likely threat on his first start for Alex Hales (ex Eve Johnson Houghton trained).
