Pulled up on handicap debut at Musselburgh in January (3m soft), so all hopes pinned on the combination of quicker ground and wind surgery helping him to take a positive step forward.

A winner off this mark at Huntingdon (2m4f) in April 2017 for previous trainer Dan Skelton, but pretty much a tale of woe since joining this trainer cheaply (£2,200) in August 2017.

Milan mare who has shown little signs of promise so far, but is worth monitoring in the market on just her second start in handicap company now upped in trip beyond 2m.

Now a ten race maiden under rules (1 from 3 in point-to-points), but posted an improved effort over fences at Hexham latest, so not entirely dismissed switched back to hurdling.

Given a chance by the handicapper following an extended absence and back with a perfectly respectable effort over C&D latest when finishing 3L third to Castletown; every chance assuming she avoids the dreaded 'bounce factor'.

A maiden after 14 starts and hasn't threatened to change that in five starts since returning from a 21-month absence. Had breathing issues in the past, so readily dismissed.

Forecast

My Escapade (3/1), Lastin' Memories (3/1), Make It Happen (10/3), Magic Of Milan (7/2), Avondhu Pearl (5/1), Gentleman James (15/2), Frankie's Promise (12/1), Sierra Oscar (14/1), Night Comes In (14/1), Herecomesnelson (20/1)

Verdict

With little to split both Make It Happen and Lastin' Memories at Kelso last month, both horses should be thereabouts on similar terms, with the first named just about preferred. However, much like in Division 1 of this contest earlier on the card, there's precious little overall strength in depth, so we'll take a complete stab in the dark at the Milan mare MAGIC OF MILAN. She should appreciate the combination of a longer trip and quicker ground with the market helpful pre-race in assessing her likely chances of leaving her earlier more moderate efforts firmly in the past. My Escapade also rates as a potential threat.
  1. Magic Of Milan
  2. My Escapade
  3. Make It Happen
