Maiden winner at Salisbury last year but that's his only success in 12 runs. Has returned below form in three runs this year and while his handicap mark is on the slide, others make more appeal here.

Started last season with some respectable runs including a win at Lingfield before form tailed off towards the back end of the campaign. Returned with a fair effort when third at Chester on debut for this yard and not ruled out if building on that.

In good form on AW this winter and won at Chepstow last time out. 4lb higher in a tougher race here but tends to hold his form well and has place claims.

Two wins from 17 starts but they have both come on AW and he's yet to place in eight turf outings. Back on his last winning mark but others make more appeal.

Still a maiden after 14 starts including five outings over hurdles this winter. Probably wants a bit softer ground to be seen at his best and opposable on return to this sphere.

Won twice last year and back below her last winning mark after some below par efforts this campaign. Has developed a habit of starting slowly but yard won this last year and likely to bounce back at some stage.

Still a maiden after 11 starts (three hurdles) and beaten out of siht on return to this sphere at Windsor last time. May come on for that but very little promise in the run and needs first-time cheekpieces to spark a revival.

Lost her maiden tag at Chelmsford last year and while she disappointed back at that course in December, she ran a huge on return to turf at big odds. Claims if she can build on that.

Betting

Forecast

Panko (2/1), Volpone Jelois (2/1), See Of Rome (4/1), Miss M (10/1), Sonnetist (12/1), Hernandes (16/1), Becca Campbell (25/1), Togetherness (33/1)

Verdict

MISS M ran a huge race from out of the handicap at Sandown last time and she has the potential to improve here upped in trip. Less exposed than many of her rivals, she's taken to win this. Eve Johnson Houghton won this race last year and the mare Becca Campbell is of interest from back below her last winning mark. Volpone Jelois is consistent and may be able to run in to a place once again.
