Both victories have been gained with cut in the ground, but yard in form and they have taken two of the last five renewals of this race. Remains well treated based on his French form.

His one turf Flat outing for this yard last year didn't go to plan (failed to fire) and it's hard to say that he's shown much more in three ensuing AW runs.

Winner of 14 races but usually improves for a run and this will help put him ready for the Ladies race at York next month.

Has disappointed in handicaps since landing a C&D maiden for James Tate. Makes debut for new yard following 21,000 gns purchase.

Picked up two handicaps last year and that means she starts this year on a career high mark. Looks the stable second string judged on jockey bookings.

Front-runner with an inconsistent look about him nowadays. Had hardly beaten a rival since last summer's success but he bounced back two weeks ago. No promise he can run to the same level again, but it paid to race handy here on Tuesday.

Suited to fast ground and landed two 1m races last year. Makes seasonal return over a new trip and a lack of race fitness makes him opposable.

Unlucky to bump into a pair of improvers on his last two starts when going down narrowly. Has another rise in the weights to overcome but deserves a change of luck.

Wolverhampton winner for James Given at this trip and last few runs have been over shorter. Makes seasonal debut for new yard off a mark that looks a shade too high.

Scored on stable debut a year ago but his form has gone into freefall since a run over hurdles in January. Below his winning mark but of little interest unless supported.

Last win came from this mark in a Catterick amateur riders contest. Should be winning soon but it will probably be in a lower grade than this.

Handles any ground and down to his last winning mark. That was in a class 6 race though and he has been poor on both starts this year.

Pontefract winner last season on a sound surface but hard to blame the ground alone for some torrid displays since. Will be one to note when the market speaks in his favour.

Betting

Forecast

Stonific (11/4), Mustaaqeem (7/2), New Society (4/1), Tidal Watch (7/1), Be Perfect (8/1), Alfred Richardson (10/1), Fire Leopard (12/1), Wotabreeze (16/1), Sean O'Casey (16/1), True Romance (20/1), Globetrotter (22/1), Swansway (25/1), Tapis Libre (40/1), Breakwater Bay (40/1)

Verdict

STONIFIC is untested on ground as fast as forecast but he ran in a Group 3 for Andre Fabre and his manner of victory last time suggested he is well-handicapped. The yard are having a good month and he meets an uninspiring bunch. Tidal Watch is up in the weights but there is little wrong with his last two AW efforts, whilst New Society has benefited from wind surgery and possibly has more to offer.
