Won off 11lb higher for previous yard but has shown little so far for this trainer. Blinkers on for the first time.

Makes some appeal on his last two AW runs, both off just 1lb lower than this, but yet to show that level of ability on turf.

Has beaten just one horse home in two starts for this yard so far. Though a 4lb drop down the weights will do his chances no harm at all this shorter trip isn't sure to suit.

May have needed the run last time out when failing to match the level he showed towards the end of last season (including off just 1lb lower), but a longer trip probably ideal.

C&D winner and likes quick ground, but need to improve for the return to this trip following a couple of poor runs over slightly shorter so far this campaign.

1m2f on quick ground ideal for him but all three career wins at Beverley is an obvious concern, and would need to improve on his performance on season debut last time out.

Yet to get off the mark but Hamilton fourth last time was his best run in some time. Each-way claims if taking a similar step forward over this slightly shorter trip.

1-20 in his career but that win came on the AW and couldn't follow up off 6lb higher last time out. Back up in trip here.

0-7 in her career and has shown little in each of those starts. Tough to build a case for her getting off the mark here.

Two solid efforts since returning to the Flat from hurdles. Yet to get off the mark but those were two of his better attempts and just 1lb higher than the more recent of them.

Betting

Forecast

John Honeyman (7/2), Druid's Diamond (4/1), Lady Magdala (4/1), Royal Cosmic (5/1), John Caesar (8/1), Bollin Ted (10/1), Zihaam (10/1), Haymarket (10/1), Ana Lichious (12/1), Leonidas (22/1), Natajack (25/1), Highwayman (25/1)

Verdict

Few of these are in form, but DRUID'S DIAMOND has run well over further than this the last twice, and provided he can prove he has the tactical pace for this shorter trip he should be capable of breaking his maiden here off a similar handicap mark and with a good draw. Others to note include Richard Fahey's filly Royal Cosmic, and Ana Lichious, who has her first start for John Feane here.
  1. Druid's Diamond
  2. Royal Cosmic
  3. Ana Lichious
