Won a maiden at Lingfield (1m2f, AW) last season, perhaps will have needed last month's Epsom run on first start for a year, and may improve on that showing.

Made all the running to win at Southwell in January over 1m4f, that was an improved effort but this looks a tougher race on paper and is rated 8lb higher. Tends to need a run.

Former C&D winner, ran poor race at Ripon last month over 1m4f when finishing last and doesn't have an ideal draw for this return to artificial surface.

Twice a winner around here in the past, though not over this trip. Ran well enough in better races here in March and should give a good account.

Two-time winner in Ireland last year for John Oxx, finished only 2L down in fourth over this C&D last month on first start for new handler. Tongue tied added now and should be in the mix.

Proved better than ever when taking an AW handicap at Lingfield over 1m2f at the start of the year despite not having the run of the race. Ran well a couple of times after that before disappointing last time and needs to bounce back.

Unexposed Kendargent gelding who seeks a hat-trick after AW wins over 1m2f at Chelmsford and Newcastle. Made all at a steady pace last time, not certain to get it as easy here.

Landed his maiden in comfortable fashion at Lingfield in December and ran well behind a useful prospect at Epsom last time out despite the fact he was out of the handicap. 1lb rise in the weights looks lenient and less exposed than most.

Lightly-raced course winner (1m), went well at Newbury last month (1m2f, good to soft) and should be in there pitching for this prize on that evidence.

Course winner, just 2lb higher than when winning at Lingfield last month and taking AW record to 8-29. Poor since at Windsor but easily forgiven and respected back on artificial surface.

Lightly-raced winner course winner, shaped well on reappearance at Windsor last month before tiring late on, may have needed that outing and goes on shortlist back here with that benefit behind him.

Progressing nicely with a win and runner-up finish at Wolverhampton of late, goes up inn trip and class now, and is 6lb wrong at these weights, though is still on the up so not entirely dismissed.

Betting

Forecast

Dash Of Spice (11/8), Dubai Horizon (5/1), Petitioner (6/1), Birds Of Prey (6/1), Buzz (12/1), Shanghai Silver (20/1), William Hunter (20/1), Fire Fighting (25/1), Cosmelli (33/1), Tangramm (50/1), Ay Ay (50/1), Noble Gift (66/1), Caramuru (66/1)

Verdict

BIRDES OF PREY ran well enough on debut for Paul Nicholls over this C&D recently on his first AW start. From the same mark and with a tongue tie added, he's capable of doing better still and might land this. Dash Of Spice impressed at Epsom in defeat and has to enter calculations along with Buzz, who showed up well last time at Newbury. The improving Caramuru faces his toughest test yet while Fire Fighting is always likely to run a sound race.
