Scored over C&D twice in 2014. Hint that he might be on the way back on second start after a break when fourth here last time so a bold show would not surprise.

14-race maiden but went close last time when beaten half a length at Newcastle in similar company over a mile. Ran poorly on only previous visit here though so has a point to prove.

Two starts since 22-month absence. Unseated rider on first but was a decent runner-up last time over C&D at 33/1. Won twice here on the old Polytrack surface back in the 2013/14 campaign. Respected, but not well drawn.

Runner-up but beaten 8 lengths here last time. Has won at this track over the extended mile and is in fair shape. Inside draw may be in his favour if this prominent racer jumps away on terms.

Fairly unexposed mare who won Chelmsford mile maiden in August 2016. Not completely disgraced in two starts returning back from 535 day absence and has been dropped 7lb so a market check is advised.

Formerly trained by both Brian Meehan and Olly Williams. First start for new yard but has been badly out of form this winter and even from falling rating appears to have plenty to do.

Only career success came at Yarmouth in July 2016. Less effective on AW (0-12) but feasibly handicapped now 4lb lower than on debut for current yard. Others make more appeal though.

Veteran who has been campaigned at up to 2m over the last 12 months and now drops back in trip after a fruitless spell. Likley to find things happening a little too quick for him.

Scottish raider who has run well in four of his last five starts, including when third the last twice over this C&D. Doesn't find winning easy but should again be there or thereabouts.

Interesting contender who goes unpenalised for winning an apprentice race at Chelmsford last week on debut for new connections. Yard in fine form at present so rates a big threat to all if in same form..

Very appealingly handicapped on his best form but things haven't gone his way for some time. Has met trouble in running on his last two starts, an occuptional hazard for a horse who comes from off the pace. Not without hope though.

Not much form to speak of but has shaped better in three starts since the turn of the year. Remains 0-11 though and extra furlong here not an obvious bonus.

Last win in Decmeber 2012. Returned in February after 902 days on the sidelines. Yet to show any real form of note and would take a big leap of faith to support him on recent evidence.

Forecast

Street Poet (13/8), Stringybark Creek (3/1), New Abbey Angel (6/1), Cat Royale (7/1), Vigee Le Brun (10/1), Let Me In (16/1), Etaad (16/1), Polar Forest (25/1), Mette (40/1), Rebel Sky (66/1), Thecornishbarron (80/1), Tingo In The Tale (80/1), Norwegian Reward (100/1)

Verdict

STRINGYBARK CREEK runs off the same mark as when winning at Chelmsford last week in an apprentice event and if in similar form has every chance of following up in a modest event. Polar Forest has hinted that he he might be running back into form and could well make his presence felt, and New Abbey Angel has also been in good heart and won't be far away once again. Cat Royale and Street Poet are others to take into consideration.
