Landed a 5f Beverley maiden on debut last July, but has been unable to supplement that victory, three times in handicap company. Mark is falling, however, and he returns to action after being gelded.

Won a 1m novice event at Lingfield in December, but has been beaten a long way on both starts this year. Drop in trip and first run in a handicap needs to be a potent combination for him to return to winning ways.

Without a win after six starts, but has been knocking on the door and is down to a fair handicap mark. One of the more likely contenders with proven ability to handle this faster ground.

Placed five times in seven starts and was not disgraced on his reappearance at Nottingham last month when finishing in mid-division over 5f. Longer trip ought to suit and 1lb lower mark helps, too.

One or two promising runs as a juvenile and seemed to find 7f too far on her return to action at Chepstow recently. Has been dropped 1lb, should strip fitter and first-time blinkers could conjure improvement.

Good run to finish second over 6f at Southwell preceded a disappointing display at Epsom where he pulled too hard over 1m½f. Down to a fair rating and back at a more suitable trip in first-time cheekpieces.

Received his reward for a couple of good efforts in defeat when winning over 5f at Windsor in October. Runs off a realistic mark and return to 6f is not an issue.

Three runs in novice/maiden company, the latest of which saw him finish a close second at Kempton. Good chance on handicap debut with stable going so well.

Landed a Lingfield maiden for Richard Hughes, but not much to shout about in two efforts for current trainer. Plenty to prove despite a reduced handicap rating.

Some promise in novice company last season and return to action over 7f at Kempton was almost certainly needed. Drops back to 6f off 2lb lower mark.

Returned to action in style at Windsor last month when winning well over this trip. Has been hit by a 6lb rise, but looks to be on the upgrade and may well be up to the task.

Not much to shout about on last three runs, but has been running over longer trips. Nicely weighted if shorter distance produces a little improvement..

Several reasonable efforts, one in handicap company, in the autumn. Might have benefited from a break and should be competitive off this rating for top stable.

First run for this stable since leaving Richard Hughes when well beaten at Bath last month. Should be sharper this time, but has a bit to prove despite 2lb lower mark.

First run since being gelded and seasonal reappearance when fifth of 13, with Ragstone View behind, at Bath. Not out of this off 2lb lower with improvement on the cards.

Runner-up at Windsor on debut last July, but failed to confirm that promise in two subsequent runs on the AW. Can do better back on turf in her first handicap.

Looked promising when winning over 7f on debut at this track, but has gone backwards. Questions to answer in first-time cheekpieces.

Betting

Forecast

Quick Breath (7/2), Ghayadh (8/1), General Jack (8/1), Iconic Knight (9/1), Jack Taylor (10/1), Procedure (10/1), Beyond Equal (12/1), Go Roo (12/1), Goodnight Girl (14/1), Qaaraat (14/1), Cosmopolitan Queen (14/1), Your Choice (14/1), Popsicle (16/1), The Great Dandini (20/1), Ragstone View (33/1), N Over J (33/1), Mewtow (33/1), Ragstone Road (50/1)

Verdict

Beyond Equal caught the eye on his first run since being gelded and may be primed to do better this time. He is well worth checking in the betting, but the vote goes to QUICK BREATH, who won well at Windsor on his return and appears to be on the upgrade. A host of dangers are headed by Procedure, Go Roo, Iconic Knight, Jack Taylor and Goodnight Girl.
