69-rated handicapper Richard Hannon finishing fourth of 13 beaten 1½L when last seen in a Yarmouth handicap in October. Interesting stable debutante.

Placed off a mark of 57 when second in a 7f handicap at Chelmsford at the end of January before winning here over 6f in a 14-runner maiden last month. Another bold show looks likely.

Best race to date latest when a running on second here in a 1m handicap before disappointing over this trip in December and January. Will need to improve to figure.

Well beaten on last two starts over C&D last year and hard to fancy until she shows a hint of ability.

Has produced a number of laboured runs here this year. Plenty to work on based on what he has shown so far but improvement possible in first-time blinkers.

Fifth of 10 beaten 3¼L last month over 1m before hitting the post later in the month over 6f when beaten ½L after blowing the start as beaten favourite. Chance to put the record straight here.

Modest 52-rated handicapper for David Barron without a win in nine starts over distances between five and 7f. Looks out of her depth here on debut for yard.

Not disgraced when not beaten far on her last two starts in February including a 3¾L defeat here over 6f. Looks in good form with herself and could hit the frame.

Will have disappointed connections with three dismal performances here since October including on return to the track last month. May find this a tough assignment.

Modest efforts on turf were followed by a defeat on AW debut here earlier in the month. Looks opposable.

Well beaten and never a factor in three starts when in the hands of trainer-Patrick Martin last year. Never on terms on stable debut when sent off at 100/1 last month.

Not beaten far in two C&D performances in December and January before two more solid runs over 1m and 6f. Not the greatest of draws but place claims if getting the luck.

Betting

Forecast

Patrick Joseph (6/5), Highly Approved (3/1), Tea Roses (10/1), Tagle (11/1), Lady Godiva (14/1), Downtown Diva (16/1), Taylor Velvet (16/1), Slievenabrock (20/1), Innamorare (25/1), Lucky Red (25/1), Raise The Tempo (33/1), Lady Sandy (50/1)

Verdict

Downtown Diva likes to get on with things from the front but is in stall 12 so it may be left to Lady Sandy on stable debut to give the Joseph O'Brien-trained HIGHLY APPROVED the toe in to the race he requires. The three-year-old is taken to build on his win over 6f last month and take advantage of any shortcomings at the start from Patrick Joseph who has missed the break in two of his last three starts here.
