49-7OR: 55
4/1

Only win came at 6f last year on turf off a 5lb higher mark but one of his runs this year did hint that he was capable of better (too far back to do himself justice). Tried in eyeshields last time (removed here); first try on AW for a while.

8/1

Twice a course winner (once over C&D) he's looked badly out of sorts of late on turf and will need a return to the scene of his only wins to provide some spark. Did shape a little better than his finishing position the last time he was in this grade.

Yet to win a race in 14 starts and has made very limited impact in all his starts this year. Mark is falling rapidly and is now at a point where it can't be reduced any further and he still can't take advantage.

4/1

Basically an unreliable sort he came back to life at Ayr on his penultimate start over this trip winning his 5th race off his lowest winning mark. Has never managed to follow-up a win and didn't this time but shaped as though still in form.

Turned in his best effort when he was last seen over 1m on Fibresand but that was some while ago and he's been absent since. That was just his third run for connections and he now has to prove himself again off the same mark.

His Tapeta debut at this trip saw him gain his first victory off a mark of 50 but he's not been able to reproduce that form since. Finished last (of 12) at Yarmouth last time and quickly returned to the AW dropped to a career-low mark.

9/1

Made a positive start to his career with this yard shaping well twice but has run well below that form on his last two starts. Ran poorly over C&D last time (held up; ran on late); would have a chance on earlier form; leap of faith to support him.

Got off the mark on his handicap debut (6f) but that looks a long time ago now and he's been nowhere near that sort of form since. Tongue-tie that he's worn with a variety of headgear is now removed but his stamina for this trip remains in doubt.

14/1

Over two years since her last win although she did show a little more than for a long time when after a break she finished 5th over C&D last time. Given a patient ride it remains to be seen if she can build on that run off a basement mark.

48-12OR: 45
33/1

The majority of her form is poor and she's lacked any promise of late even when given a try on turf. Steps back up to 7f now with her previous tries over the distance failing to inspire and hard to fashion a case for her here.

38-4OR: 46
8/1

Makes her handicap debut having shown very little in her three starts so far and still looking to have something to learn. Handicaps may see her in a better light off a basement mark given her shrewd stable; market watch advised.

Forecast

Cupid's Arrow (4/1), Be Bold (4/1), Pitch High (5/1), Jack Blane (8/1), Exspectation (8/1), Foxy Locks (8/1), False Id (9/1), Hugie Boy (12/1), Les Gar Gan (14/1), Trois Bon Amis (25/1), Tink (33/1), Bob's Girl (33/1)

Verdict

Very hard to find any sound recent performances in this to hang your hat on. Be Bold has at least won a race of late and looked to still be in some sort of form last time and he’s one for the shortlist. Les Gar Gan is another who has shown some form of late and it just remains to be seen if this dual course winner can build on a modest run last time. Jack Blane has also shown some of his better form here and may be able to bounce back returned to this basement grade with Foxy Locks worth noting for a market move. CUPID'S ARROW is the overall suggestion though having shown that he still had ability last time and running off a mark that he ought to be able to cope with here.
