Sixth of nine on debut at Thirsk last time and drops back in trip by a furlong here. Likely set for a supporting role even if he manages to show some progression.

50/1
Finished fourth in a bumper last November but not having an impact at 40/1 in a 5f maiden at Thirsk last time out. Up in trip here and should appreciate the extra distance, but still has improvement to find.

Has had more racing than the rest of these, but finished third in a Group 3 at Sandown in November. Should prove tough to beat on his return to novice company having previously won easily at this level.

9/4
Smooth winner at Musselburgh last time out over this trip, and even under a penalty he's still fairly well treated against the older horses so should go very well again.

Not disgraced on debut at Newbury last time when finishing a close sixth. Has since moved from Ralph Beckett to Mark Johnston and should run well again on stable debut.

Has had plenty of chances both on the Flat and over hurdles, not managing to play a serious role in any of them. Everything to prove on this return to the level.

Showed little progression between her two runs, including when dropped back to this trip last time out. Others hold more convincing claims.

Down the field at 66/1 on debut at Doncaster last time out and difficult to see her showing the requisite improvement to get involved in this.

Last of the eight at Catterick last time out on debut. Off since then (September), and likely to need further than this slightly longer trip in time.

Betting

Forecast

Arbalet (4/7), Dazzle Gold (9/4), Butterfly Lily (5/1), Blue Medici (11/1), It's Never Enough (50/1), Xin Chao (50/1), Carlton Thomas (66/1), Cathie's Dream (66/1), Boudica Bay (80/1), Millie The Minx (100/1), Angel Eyes (100/1)

Verdict

Though he's had more racing than the rest of these, ARBALET was good enough to finish third in a Group 3 at Sandown in November, and now returning to novice company (having previously recorded an impressive success in a similar race), he should be very tough to beat. Recent Musselburgh winner Dazzle Gold and and Butterfly Lily can fill the places.
