Stayed on well to score over 1m6f at Wetherby last time so likely to be given a positive ride from the front dropping back in trip. Up 6lb but clearly in good heart at present.

Three runs to qualify for this first handicap and ran very well last time when third to a fair horse over the extended mile here in March. Longer trip should suit with plenty of stamina on dam's side and looks capable of improvement.

Competed in races won by decent sorts last two starts, notablly at Newbury last time in race won by subsequent Group 3 Chester Vase winner. Should have come on for that return run and looks fairly handicapped at slightly longer trip. Major player.

Two good efforts on AW before beaten favourite on turf at end of last term. Not overburdened on handicap bow and market may well indicate if he's ready to roll first time out.

Didn't show much in two starts last term and was subsequently gelded. Better effort here in November over a mile and should find a race or two this term. Interesting to see how he fares stepped up nearly half a mile.

Much improved for step up to this trip on handicap bow over C&D last month staying on well to score by a neck. 4lb higher now but shoudl still be very much on the premises once again.

Promise on first two starts but ran an absolute shocker on turf at Ripon last time and needs to leave that dysmal effort far behind. Watching brief best advised at present.

Fair third over extended mlie here in November. Changed stables after two modest runs following that and hasn't shone in two more starts this term for new conenctions. Eased 2lb but would be a surprise winner.

Step up in trip looks the right call having given the impression he would stay further when keeping on over extended 9f here last month. 2lb lower now and from a yard among the winners of late.

Hinted at ability in all three starts in novice company last term and steps up in distance for handicap debut here. Inexperienced rider claims 7lb and has yet to ride a winner.

Betting

Forecast

Hazarfan (2/1), Silver Crescent (9/2), Teaser (11/2), Elysees (6/1), Eyecatcher (9/1), Silver Character (11/1), Breakfast (16/1), River Glades (16/1), Island Court (20/1), Time To Perfection (66/1)

Verdict

There are a number of potential improvers in this race so the market could well give plenty of clues as to who's fancied on handicap debut or stepping up in trip. TEASER is a tentative choice but he looks the type who could do well this year and the longer trip should be very much in his favour. River Glades sets a fair standard following his recent win, and both Hazarfan and Eyecatcher could be very big dangers if handling the trip. In-form Elysees is also one worthy of plenty of consideration, along with Breakfast in an interesting race.
