20/1

Winner at Bath over 1m2f during the summer but ended the year out of sorts and struggled to make an impression on his reappearance over 1m here last month. Now winless in 10 AW starts.

20/1

Just three wins from 50 starts and only a sole AW victory to her credit (over 1m here 11 months ago). Well-handicapped on that form and has generally been competitive this winter over slightly shorter trips without looking like winning.

Notched three turf wins in Ireland earlier in his career but very underwhelming for this yard prior to gamely winning over 1m4f here last time out. Ensuing 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

Other than a third place at Southwell (1m) in December, he hasn't fired for this yard, finishing well beaten at Chelmsford last time. Now 11 starts without a win but mark continues to fall.

12-race maiden and disappointing in the main since joining this yard from France, though glimmers of improvement when impeded on his recent reappearance. Could be worth a second look in a first-time visor, though stall 13 doesn't help.

A changer of headgear saw him finally open his account at the 26th time of asking over this trip at Chelmsford earlier in the month, staying on well to beat Dor's Law by 1¼L. More to do from a 3lb higher mark.

16/1

Just three wins from 62 starts (1-25 on the AW) and losing sequence has been extended to 15 races. For all that, he was only 2L behind Just Fred at Chelmsford last time despite not enjoying a clear passage. Now 3lb better off.

Still a maiden but produced an improved effort in first-time blinkers over 1m here last time out when second behind Dukes Meadow. Should be up to winning off her lowly mark but still has something to prove over this longer trip.

50/1

His only win from 55 starts came over a longer trip at Kempton almost three years ago. Very moderate on the AW this winter, including when well-held in a Lingfield seller last time. Hard to enthuse over.

Unplaced in his first 17 career starts but has found improvement to finish third and second in his last two starts, both over 1m4f. Current mark is clearly workable but may just find this shorter trip on the sharp side.

Did win an all-weather bumper at Lingfield back in 2014 and this sort of trip might suit on the Flat. Not seen out since December 2016 however, so fitness question mark against him. Market should guide.

Yet to make the frame in 11 starts but signs were more encouraging last time when beaten less than 3L over 1m2f at Chelmsford despite only finishing sixth. Others more persuasive all the same.

Well beaten in all five starts to date including in both starts since switching to handicaps. Hard to make out a credible case for on what she has served up so far.

Yet to even place in 10 starts and, if anything, appears to be regressing on the evidence of two heavy defeats on the AW this winter. Returns from a short break, others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Royal Hall (5/2), Just Fred (5/1), Hi There Silver (11/2), Outrath (7/1), General Brook (8/1), Queen Moon (10/1), Sexy Secret (16/1), Ixelles Diamond (20/1), Altaira (20/1), Dragonite (25/1), Gunner Moyne (33/1), Golden Cannon (40/1), Awesome Rock (50/1), Life Happens (66/1)

Verdict

A modest opener in which Just Fred has to be considered, having proved a revelation when opening his account in a new headgear combination at Chelmsford last time. That said, SEXY SECRET - who was backed into favouritism that day - enjoys a 3lb pull for a 2L beating and that may just prove enough to reverse the form considering he didn't enjoy the smoothest of passages at the Essex venue. Recent course winner General Brook also merits a place in the shortlist whilst Royal Hall is interesting in a first-time visor.
