Course winner (6f) who wears a hood for the first time on her second run for this yard having not been seen to best effect on her initial run for them. Wasn't knocked about though and the trainer does well with sprinters; hard to ignore.

Looked to have needed both her runs so far this year with the hood now going back on as her mark gradually reduces (yet to win a handicap though). This will be her lowest ever mark and with the yard in form a market move should be noted.

Scored on her third start having gradually learnt how to race over 6f on the AW. Failed to last home on her handicap debut (took a keen hold) and this 5f might suit her better as she makes her turf debut; mark still looks high though.

Two sound enough runs this year sit alongside one poor one and he got back on track from that below-par run last time at Nottingham (5f, soft). Will find conditions considerably quicker here though and might be worth a try over 6f.

Kept busy on the AW at the start of the year recording two consecutive wins although he's not quite fulfilled the ability that he showed in those runs since. Back on turf last time and while not laboured there was little spark about him.

His record overall is rather mixed with his best form having come at Hamilton. Failed to come on again for his last decent run at that venue when slowly away at Redcar (6f, good) and remains one to treat with a little care.

Still a maiden and has offered very little of late in a couple of runs having shown some better form on his last run of the year. Not landed a blow in his last two starts though and others make more appeal in this.

Formerly with Richard Hughes she's joined a yard that does well with this type but it may be a while before they find the key to her. Mark is falling rapidly though and any support should be noted.

Betting

Forecast

Danehill Desert (15/8), Bow Belles (7/2), Wiff Waff (5/1), Misty Spirit (5/1), The Golden Cue (9/1), Cardaw Lily (14/1), Madame Ritz (20/1), Bomad (33/1)

Verdict

The finale lacks any progressive individuals and it may be worth taking a chance with MISTY SPIRIT who has joined a yard who are no strangers to sprinting success and the first-time hood may bring about some improvement. The Golden Cue didn’t run too badly last time but may be better over 6f with Bow Belles off a career-low mark preferred with any market support adding to the confidence behind her. Cardaw Lily has joined a yard who are noted for turning those around from other yards and is worth keeping an eye on with Danehill Desert needing handling with care although he would have a chance if he exited the stalls on cue.
  1. Misty Spirit
