Has failed to hit the frame in six starts for Richard Hughes and one for her current trainer. Handicap mark is on the slide, but she would be a surprise winner.

Showed promise in three starts in novice company last summer. First outing in a handicap for a shrewd stable which has three runners, so she is one to watch in the betting.

Decent efforts in two AW handicaps this year, latterly over 7f. Drops back to 6f off 2lb lower mark and is one to consider returned to turf in first-time blinkers.

Won over this trip at Wolverhampton last month but went up 6lb and probably found 5f too sharp at the same venue last time. Up another 1lb which is not ideal.

Promise on first two starts as a juvenile, but has not quite built on that. Ran well for a long way on reappearance at Thirsk, should strip fitter and is down 3lb.

Stable companion of Paco Bleue and Revenge who has run well on both starts this season, but may have found 7f too far last time. Makes some appeal off 2lb lower mark.

Has failed to hit the frame in seven starts, two of them for this trainer. Well beaten at Thisk on latest outing and needs to take a step forward. Positive jockey booking, however.

Maiden after 13 starts, but has been placed six times, including when runner-up in a seller at Beverley on Tuesday. Fairly handicapped and is not out of it.

Out of the frame in seven races from 5f to 1m on AW and turf. On her lowest mark so far, but does not appear to be a winner-in-waiting.

Down the field in first four starts as a juvenile and was having his first run after being gelded when seventh of 14 over 7f at Newcastle in October. Plenty to prove back at 6f.

Best of three runs since joining this stable from Mick Channon was his latest when second of 12 at Thirsk. Up 2lb for that display, but is getting his act together and is one to consider.

Has failed to hit the frame in seven starts, six of them on the AW. Cheekpieces seemed to help on final two races of last year, but they are left off for her seasonal reappearance.

Two quiet runs for Chris Wall last year and debut for this stable last month did not offer much encouragement. Plenty to prove on handicap debut.

Betting

Forecast

Sir Derrick (7/2), Revenge (5/1), G Eye Joe (11/2), Erastus (7/1), Me Before You (8/1), Sienna Says (9/1), Mount Hellvelyn (16/1), Optimickstickhill (16/1), Barney Bullet (16/1), Cardaw Lily (18/1), Supermoss (20/1), Poppy Jag (25/1), Paco Bleue (25/1), Stopwatch (25/1), Equo (80/1)

Verdict

A wide-open sprint handicap in which Sir Derrick may be the best of three runners from his shrewd stable. Me Before You also represents connections who win their share of these races, and Erastus and Sienna Says have good recent form to their names, but the selection is G EYE JOE, who is down to a fair mark in first-time blinkers and can go where the early pace is from his middle draw.
