Both victories have been gained on the AW. 0-9 on turf and absent since scoring over hurdles in November, but jockey booking a positive sign.

Has won here twice over 1m4f but not the force he was and advancing years may be catching him up/

10-race maiden for whom 2m has appeared too short in recent races at Lingfield and Wolverhampton. More galloping track and cheekpieces may help but others have stronger appeal.

Showed first sign of ability when upped in trip last time and would have appreciated a more truly run race. Big danger if getting that today.

Three wins in 2017 from marks of 49-52. Goes well for this rider and handles any ground. Can be keen and well beaten on sole try at this trip.

Has been toiling over fences and now almost three years since his last win. Hard to fancy on that evidence.

Ex-Irish maiden who joined this yard for £20,000 after landing a point-to-point in January. Jockey booking takes the eye for a predominantly NH yard that have placed older horses well on the Flat.

Exposed maiden whose best efforts have come with some give underfoot. Beaten 9L into second on most recent start and has plenty to find.

Betting

Forecast

The Way You Dance (5/2), Bailarico (11/4), Affair (4/1), Massini's Trap (4/1), Ocean Gale (4/1), Sheila's Fancy (13/2), Grams And Ounces (10/1), Southern States (10/1), Everlasting Sea (12/1), Jalors (12/1), Patent (20/1), Amadeus Rox (20/1), Agreement (40/1)

Verdict

This will take little winning and a market check on Bailarico is advised given a lack of Flat form and an absence since a point-to-point victory four months ago. The jockey booking also looks positive as it does for AW winner The Way You Dance. Ocean Gale has more to after the race fell in her lap last time and the vote goes to Irish challenger MASSINI'S TRAP who is is a useful staying hurdler who returns to the Flat at a very low level and reunited with a rider who knows how to make him tick. Everlasting Sea is best of the rest.
