12/1

Drops back in grade following a run in listed company last time and is 5lb lower than last win at Sandown three starts ago. Has claims on these terms and shouldn't be far away.

9/2

Previous C&D winner who has won three times in the last 10 months, twice on the AW this winter. Went close at Nottingham recently off 1lb lower mark and a similar effort should give here every chance once again.

Won at Catterick three starts ago but was raised 6lb for that effort before again going well when runner-up at Redcar last month. BIt disappointing latest off higher mark and maybe the handicapper has his measure now.

Comfortable scorer on soft ground at Ripon in April but well held under quicker conditions last two outings. Any rain would help but otherwise she has it to do.

Lightly raced Dubawi filly was nicely supported at Sandown last week when justifying favoruitism to land first win on her fifth career start. Only 4lb higher and represents top yard so one for short list assuming she's recover from her exertions.

Very consistent filly over the last 12 months, almost always thereabouts. On a hat-trick after two wins at Lingfield, but both came on slower ground than forecast here so any rain would help. Otherwise, she may have to settle for a place at best.

Two wins over 6f on AW at Chelmsford this winter but ran well on turf at Carlisle on recent return. This sharper 5f may not be ideal but is not lightly dismissed.

Won twice here last summer over this trip but off much lower marks. Went close on AW at Wolverhampton earlier this month so is in form but needs to improve to score despite bottom weight.

Betting

Forecast

Island Of Life (5/4), Midnight Malibu (9/2), Mythical Spirit (9/2), Economic Crisis (7/1), Merry Banter (15/2), Justice Lady (12/1), Bellevarde (14/1), Lydiate Lady (16/1), Teepee Time (40/1)

Verdict

Plenty of old favourites in a tight-knit sprint handicap but it may be the unexposed younger filly ISLAND OF LIFE who comes out on top. She is going the right way and represents a top team so looks worth an interest. Veteran Economic Crisis comes here on the back of a good win last time and won't be far away, nor will Midnight Malibu and Justice Lady, both of whom are capable when things go their way. Mythical Spirit and Bellevarde are also respected in a trappy affair.
