49-7OR: 80
7/2

Held her form well throughout most of last year and has one win from four starts this time around. Shaped like she may improve for this step up in trip when narrowly beaten last time at Lingfield and should run well here.

Has returned in good form this year, winning at Doncaster in April before two respectable efforts in defeat subsequently. Has never won from a mark this high and has only been over this far once (well beaten fifth); may find a couple too good.

Has not won since her debut success and has largely disappointed since, though a recent second at Redcar was a more encouraging effort. Has issues with the stalls and can be reluctant to go to post; may be best watched for the time being.

In good form towards the start of the year with several placed efforts but well beaten from her revised mark twice since and has never won from a mark this high. Well beaten on all three previous attempts further than 7f.

Won twice in 14 starts for Mick Appleby but her better efforts all came on ground softer than what she will get here. Probably best watched on yard debut from a wide draw.

58-6OR: 65
7/1

Just one win from 20 starts and turf form has been particularly patchy. No signs a return to the winners' enclosure was imminent at Haydock last time but ground should be in her favour and hard to completely put a line through.

48-6OR: 65CD
9/4

Won a maiden over C&D but has failed to place in six starts subsequently. Has been slowly away on several of her more recent starts and while there's a suspicion she's well-handicapped, she's hard to fancy around here with that current bad habit.

78-2OR: 55CD
16/1

Has not won since a wide margin C&D success in 2016 and hard to fancy in current form. Often misses the break, a particularly bad habit at this course and she's forced to operate from a fair way out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Lady In Question (15/8), Highland Pass (9/4), Island Cloud (7/2), Finale (6/1), Little Miss Kodi (7/1), Ce La Vie (12/1), Bush Beauty (16/1), Maureb (25/1), Our Greta (33/1)

Verdict

There's plenty to like about ISLAND CLOUD and her consistency and that could see her get her head back in front in what looks like a winnable contest. Finale gave the impression she needed the run at Kempton last time and ought to improve while Highland Pass has been given a break and can't be ruled out if she breaks on terms.
