Didn't need to improve to win when making all at Chelmsford in November but a beaten favourite at Wolverhampton next time and he has a tough ask here.

Yet to win in six starts but one of his better efforts came on good to firm ground at Newmarket in October so he should enjoy conditions here. Fair effort at Pontefract last time and may come on for that so not discounted.

Improved to win on handicap debut last time at Goodwood and could come on for that run. A further step up in trip could also see him improve and he's an interesting runner here.

Yet to win in four starts. Just about his best effort to date when placed at Doncaster last time but up 3lb for that and this is a tougher contest.

Lost his maiden tag at Lingfield in February but that's only one win from 13 career starts and he was very disappointing last time.

Yet to win in three starts and makes handicap debut here. No obvious reason why he should improve enough to take this having been well beaten over this trip at Salisbury last time.

Showed some promise in his three starts prior to handicap debut last time at Doncaster where he was placed, though no match for the winner. First-time cheekpieces and the booking of Moore could see him produce a better effort here.

Failed to justify favouritism at Lingfield towards the end of last year and well beaten on return at Haydock in heavy ground on debut for this yard. May improve for better ground here though.

Still a maiden after 10 starts and handicapper reluctant to release his grip just dropping him 1lb for his latest effort. Hard to fancy.

Maiden winner at Newcastle on fourth starts but not shown enough in two starts since to be of interest here. Useful claimer takes off 5lb at least.

Yet to win in six starts but has produced to better efforts at Kempton this year. May be capable of improvement upped in trip on turf debut and first-time blinkers could help.

Made little impression as a juvenile but two much better efforts this campaign and step up to this trip could see him improve further.

Career best by some distance when second of 17 at Goodwood last time behind Victory Chime. 3lb rise for that a shade harsh but may be capable of better.

Maiden after six starts, has returned with two better efforts on AW last month but this is obviously tougher and he's up 2lb in the handicap.

Still a maiden after six starts and while she's produced better efforts on her last couple of outings, she's been put up 2lb by the handicapper and is seemingly down the order on jockey bookings.

Unplaced on all six of his career starts and hard to fancy on all known form despite the yard's success here this week already.

Betting

Forecast

Baghdad (11/4), Victory Chime (9/2), Making Miracles (11/2), Nuits St Georges (8/1), Berkshire Spirit (10/1), Sexy Beast (14/1), Birdette (16/1), Champarisi (20/1), Firby (20/1), Brisk Tempo (20/1), Oskemen (20/1), Tommy Shelby (20/1), Banksy's Art (20/1), Barnay (25/1), Dontgiveuponbob (25/1), Sotomayor (33/1)

Verdict

Victory Chime and Banksy's Art hold an interesting form-line from their run at Goodwood last time out and that would appear to be stronger form than most bring to the table. However, preference is for MAKING MIRACLES with Silvestre De Sousa taking over for the first time in the saddle. The gelding showed a liking for a sound surface at Newmarket last year and is entitled to come on for a recent placed run at Pontefract.
  1. Making Miracles
  2. Victory Chime
