Former C&D winner has gone 11 runs since last win in 2016. Has run a couple of decent races over 7f on the AW lately and not disgraced over 6f here in between. Should be competitive at worst.

Mare ran up a four-race winning sequence here last summer (two of them over this trip), she's been off the boil since but capable of coming good after a few sighters on the AW and is 2lb below previous win-mark now.

Remains a 14-race maiden on turf (three-time winner on AW) but did produce better showing at Beverley last time despite missing the kick somewhat. Not out of things, place claim maybe.

Poor strike rate (3-37) and only win previous turf victory to his name, shaped well enough over this trip at Wolverhampton on penultimate start to merit consideration, though others preferred for win.

Out of the frame on the AW since the turn of the year, but ended 2017 with a couple of wins. Only win on turf came as a juvenile at Beverley two seasons ago, but he has slipped back to a feasible handicap mark.

Teenager has gone 23 runs without a win, not disgracing himself on the AW of late but still looks an unlikely scorer.

Winner at Chelmsford in February and has only started on turf three times to date, last month's Yarmouth outing over this trip suggests he'll have solid claims in this company.

Exceed and Excel gelding has suffered hold-ups since joining this trainer, though did shape with a bit more purpose on latest return at Catterick (6f, good) eight days ago and interesting to see if he builds on that. Betting may tell more.

Gained sole success in Leicester maiden over 6f on second start in 2016, often competitive in 21-race winless sequence since including in two recent starts at Brighton (1m, good to firm) and should be in the mix.

Unable to get off the mark in 23 starts, capable of throwing in the towel quite readily on occasions and looks best watched back from a layoff.

Windsor maiden winner in 2016 over 6f, not added to that tally however and hasn't justified market support in some weak contests of late. Not one to be placing a large amount of trust in.

Underwent wind surgery during 446-day layoff, duly shaped with degrees of promise in three starts since coming back. Could be capable of better still in this sort of company.

10-race maiden, yet to make the frame, returns from 236-day break here and impossible to make a case for on all know form.

Long-standing maiden (18 runs), threatened on debut for this trainer at Chelmsford (6f, AW) last month and again showed some promise at Bath since over slightly shorter. Could challenge.

Consistent at a modest level on the AW, winning twice, but was less effective on turf so far. Has a point to prove and may struggle.

Six-race maiden, didn't seem to relish first encounter with good to firm ground at Brighton recently and has plenty improving to do seemingly.

Forecast

Baby Gal (9/2), Dear Bruin (5/1), Mossy's Lodge (5/1), Cat Royale (6/1), Inuk (9/1), Emily Goldfinch (12/1), Hangman Jury (14/1), Locommotion (14/1), Gettin' Lucky (14/1), Hidden Stash (16/1), Arctic Flower (16/1), Flying Sakhee (20/1), Light From Mars (25/1), Felstead Knight (25/1), Suni Dancer (25/1), Amherst Rock (33/1), Silver Penny (33/1), Birikyno (66/1)

Verdict

MOSSY'S LODGE was a winner on the AW in February and last month's Yarmouth effort suggest he'll have sound claims of getting off the mark on turf at the fourth attempt here in a contest where not that many appeal. Dear Bruin should be competitive over this trip while Baby Gal has run two good race at Brighton recently and is entitled to be in the firing line. Hangman Jury is going better with each run after a long layoff while Arctic Flower is back below the mark from which she completed a four-timer here last summer.
