Better known as a modest handicap hurdler who can be a rather temperamental sort. Makes his Flat debut here having fallen heavily over hurdles last time and hard to see him getting involved.

Fair hurdler (cost €100,000) who has only had one previous run on the Flat; second in a Killarney 1m maiden on soft ground. Still looked in need of the experience over hurdles last time but of interest here.

Offered little on his one run so far over C&D and hard to see him making an impact in this.

Returns after a very long absence having been seen just once before on the course. Showed plenty to work on from that occasion and interesting that he's been kept in training; worth watching in the market.

Two runs last year showed little with the second coming at this trip and hard to fashion a case for her here.

Has a very useful pedigree (half-brother to an Oaks winner) showed ability and inexperience in equal measure on his debut at Salisbury over 1m4f on heavy ground. Will find the conditions very different here but sets the form standard.

Made his debut over 1m3f at Newbury and looks bred for stamina so this extra furlong will be of use. Hinted at ability there after being slow away and should come on for that run; looks one for handicaps later on.

Half-brother to several winners and makes some appeal on pedigree but didn't look the finished article on his debut making a rather modest start. Should do better in time though and further experience will do him good.

Very green on his AW debut over a shorter trip he didn't really look as though he had learnt from that experience on another AW (Fibresand) outing. Likely to do better in time but would be one more for handicaps.

Runner-up on his debut as a juvenile giving an odds-on chance plenty to think about at Kempton over a mile. Ran too free in a first-time hood (retained) last time (1m2f, heavy) and worth another chance here in more suitable conditions.

Showed plenty of inexperience on his debut in a maiden won by Derby hopeful Young Rascal when a 66/1 chance and will know more this time around. Hardly one to be interested in and looks one for the longer term.

Very little encouragement in maiden/minor events with some temperament to boot last time and not one to be interested in.

Hooded for her debut she finished well held on the AW over 1m2f. Slowly away she showed little and looks to need more experience.

Well beaten in three minor/maiden events so far and with a handicap mark of 36 this looks well out of her reach.

Forecast

Almoghared (10/11), Podemos (11/4), Beer With The Boys (13/2), Smashed (15/2), Kings Inn (12/1), Saint Mac (25/1), Oenophile (33/1), Colenso (33/1), Admiral Kid (33/1), Samson's Reach (33/1), Berry De Carjac (50/1), Duration (66/1), Triple First (100/1), Snoop (100/1), Saintmont (100/1), Island Fox (100/1)

Verdict

Despite the big field there isn’t much strength in depth in this and the majority of the field would be better off in handicaps. ALMOGHARED is bred in the purple and as long as he copes with the very different conditions from his debut he should take this with Podemos the main danger. He needs to settle better to fulfil his potential although the better ground should help him do that. Kings Inn is an interesting sort along with Smashed from the Haggas yard who hasn’t been seen in a racecourse for a fair while one to watch in the market.
