10/1

Beaten when brought down late in the day at Taunton last time out. Won off 3lb higher than this at that same course in February, though softer ground would probably be ideal.

Hasn't won in over two years but that's slightly misleading as this is his first outing since last spring. Needs to improve on the form he was showing at that point down 2lb.

Down the field on both starts so far this campaign, and a revival is needed now if he is to challenge the leading contenders, though the trip should suit.

Outclassed in a competitive race at Kempton last time out and return to this easier level should help, but win on heavy ground here two starts back his only good effort among a number of poor runs.

611-9OR: 95
5/1

0-6 in his career so far but looks capable of operating off this mark on the evidence of his last run, and every indication is that this step up in trip should suit.

Yet to run a genuinely promising race over hurdles and was pulled-up when sent off favourite for a competitive Kempton race last time out, but this looks much easier and he's dropped another 2lb.

Yet to get off the mark but improved for the switch to handicap company last time out, and 3lb drop won't do his chances any harm at all.

Just 1-34 under rules so far and recent form hardly suggests she's likely to be getting back to winning ways anytime soon.

Versatile performer but overall profile patchy at best, and tough to imagine her playing a part in this after she was pulled-up on her only start since last summer.

Took a step forward to finish second at this course last time out over this C&D. Up 7lb but could progress again and won't have any issues with the ground.

Betting

Forecast

Sweet'n'chic (3/1), Good News (7/2), Now Listen Here (5/1), East Wing (13/2), Keep To The Beat (8/1), Tactical Manoeuvre (10/1), Mogestic (12/1), Cassivellaunus (16/1), Generous Helpings (25/1), Amber Flush (40/1)

Verdict

Now Listen Here looked close to getting off the mark at Fontwell last time out, but SWEET'N'CHIC ran very well over this C&D when last seen, and though she's been raised 7lb she looks progressive and should be able to run another big race. Meanwhile East Wing ran easily his best race on handicap debut last time out and a 2lb drop also gives him some form of chance.
