Has improved since joining this yard, recording a hat-trick at Southwell. Not at his best last time out when a well beaten fourth and while that effort is best forgiven, he needs to prove he's as effective away from that unique Fibresand surface.

Started his three-year-old career in good form but has been a little hit and miss subsequently. May have needed the run on return from an absence and first start since a wind op last time so not ruled out if bouncing back.

Ended a losing run with a win at Southwell over 5f and ran okay when placed at Hamilton over this trip last time. Still feasibly handicapped on the pick of his form and jockey booking an obvious positive here.

Very inconsistent sort who gained a belated first win for this yard at Lingfield in March. Couldn't back that up at the same course next time though and opposable on return to turf despite a good second in this race last year.

Started last season in excellent form with back to back wins and while she disappointed in three of her next four runs, she's respected returned to better ground here.

Yet to win in 14 turf starts (has won twice on AW) and all his best form has come with plenty of cut in the ground. Hard to fancy unless the ground softens markedly.

Back to form with a win at Newcastle last time out when benefiting from a change of tactics and only 2lb higher for that win. Needs to prove he's as effective on turf after two unplaced efforts and market may prove informative.

On a long losing run now and only won once in 31 starts since his debut. Produced a much improved effort on debut for this yard when only narrowly beaten at Wolverhampton in December but disappointed on his return to turf at Thirsk.

Won his first four starts in handicaps last year all over this trip. Every chance there will be more to come again this season but entitled to need the run after a significant absence.

His only two wins have come here but he's not won since landing a C&D handicap here in 2015. Starts out for a new yard here but it can take a few runs to get them back to previous form and opposable off the back of absence.

Ran with credit on debut at Ffos Las and confirmed that promise with a win at Leicester in October 2016. However, didn't see the racecourse last year and fully entitled to need the run here.

Just two wins from 35 starts but only 1lb above his last winning mark now and he ran with credit on his return to turf last time. Better ground could see him improve and not ruled out with a useful claimer taking 5lb off his back.

Only winning run on turf in 14 starts came at Catterick in 2015 and much higher than that mark here. Allowed to operate from a reduced turf mark following some success on AW and ran well at Lingfield last time out others preferred.

Consistent sort but only won once in nine starts. Has run some fair race on turf including when runner-up at Salisbury in June and market may be the best guide to his chance on return from a break starting out for a new yard.

Won four times in the space of five starts in the winter of 2016/17 on AW but not won since and turf form in the interim has been poor.

Finally lost his maiden tag at the 16th attempt when winning at Redcar in August and has been running okay on AW this winter, recording a win at Newcastle in November. Needs a career best by some distance off this mark though.

Forecast

Moonraker (7/2), Imagine If (9/2), Tricky Dicky (6/1), Kaeso (8/1), Blazed (10/1), Glory of Paris (12/1), Muscika (12/1), Shepherd's Purse (14/1), Red Tycoon (16/1), Glorious Politics (16/1), Madame Bounty (16/1), Sea Shack (16/1), Monks Stand (20/1), Insurplus (25/1), Lord Cooper (25/1), Cuttin' Edge (25/1), Field of Vision (25/1), Philba (50/1)

Verdict

MADAME BEAUTY may be the only filly lining up in the race but she's taken to get the better of the opposite sex here. All her best form came at the start of last season and she may be capable of bouncing back this year with the yard in form. Muscika may have needed the run on return and is likely to do better here while Glorious Politics isn't ruled out if he can prove he's as good on turf as all-weather.
