Won twice last year and back below his last winning mark here. Entitled to need this on seasonal return though.

Just one win since his maiden success at Wolverhampton, winning back over the same C&D in an amateur handicap in April. Has looked as effective in seven turf starts and draw won't help matters here.

Last win on turf came in 2015 and that's the only win from 31 starts away from AW. Well below that mark now and running well on synthetic surfaces of late. Can't be ruled out.

C&D winner when below his highest winning mark. Has been below form in two runs in 2018 though and he's been unlucky with the draw here.

Shaped with promise on debut for this yard but form has tailed off a little in two starts since that effort. Fast ground will be in his favour if the rain stays away and handicapper has dropped him 3lb.

Two wins from six starts. Won on handicap debut but has struggled to beat many home in two turf starts subsequently. Dropped 4lb for latest run; others preferred.

Plenty of promise in the early stages of his career and got his head in front on heavy ground at Listowel. Has largely struggled in handicap company since that run and changed stables at the end of 2017 but shaped with a bit of promise last time.

Still a maiden after 15 starts and while he's gone close on occasions to losing the maiden tag, they've been on the AW and well beaten in two recent turf starts.

Still a maiden after eight starts and well beaten in three runs since joining this yard. First-time cheekpieces may help but wide draw won't.

C&D winner last year and back on a workable mark after below par efforts towards the end of last year. Ran with some promise at Beverley last time out at a big price and dropped by the handicapper since so not ruled out here.

On a long losing run since his C&D win here in 2016 and all his better efforts have come in softer ground than what he's likely to get here.

Won a claimer last year but he's been regressed subsequently and shown no signs of a revival in three outings this year.

Coming towards the end of his career now and only recent respectable effort came in claiming company at Redcar. Only won twice on turf since 2013 and while leniently handicapped, looks regressive.

Showed some promise on her handicap debut but hasn't been able to build on that outing in two subsequent starts (ran very poorly last time). Trip looked too short last time and a return to 6f may suit better; runs from out of the handicap here.

Betting

Forecast

Round The Island (7/2), Araqeel (9/2), Avenue Of Stars (7/1), The Amber Fort (8/1), Alfie's Angel (8/1), Highly Sprung (10/1), Swissal (10/1), Munthany (12/1), Fink Hill (12/1), Major Crispies (14/1), Bobby Joe Leg (20/1), Space War (20/1), Juan Horsepower (20/1), Ticks The Boxes (25/1), Kingofmerrows (25/1), Shakiah (33/1)

Verdict

ROUND THE ISLAND could be the one to beat here with a course and distance win a positive to his chance and he gets the services of a useful 3lb claimer here. Araqeel shaped like a return to form was imminent when last seen while Juan Horsepower returns on a workable mark after some leniency from the assessor.
