Progressive, winning six of his last eight starts but signs the handicapper eventual caught up with him on the evidence from his Leicester run last time. A shade keen that day and a return to AW in his favour so not ruled out if settling better.

C&D winner in May and ran well from his revised mark next time out. Not as good at Leicester last time but a return to AW could be the key and he's unexposed to a degree.

Makes handicap debut on first start for this yard after four maiden runs for Richard Fahey in 2015. Ran well in some of those efforts but only bought for 1,000 gns by these connections and huge absence is off putting. Likely best watched.

C&D winner, latest success came at Lingfield in December. May have needed the run on return at that course last time and he's getting back down towards a more workable mark now. Should run well.

Won two of her first three starts but she's been on a long losing run since. Not the most consistent sort but makes AW debut here and there's hope in her pedigree she will go on this surface. Interesting runner.

Has improved markedly for the switch to handicaps up in trip and she's been in good form in her last two AW starts. Still on a workable handicap mark and first-time blinkers may eke out some improvement. Interesting runner.

Showed plenty of promise on his Newbury debut but couldn't back that up on only other start as a juvenile. Ran well at Newmarket on return last month though and given a workable mark for handicap debut. Interesting runner in first-time blinkers.

Showed some promise over longer trips in bumpers for previous yard but shown very little since joining this stable. Well beaten when stepped up in trip at Goodwood last time and has plenty to find on form.

11/10

Progressing with each start and ran well at Lingfield last time when third of 12, though no match for the winner. Will continue to give a good account and he's a well bred sort likely to be brought along slowly. Worthy of respect on handicap debut.

Betting

Forecast

Refrain (11/10), Gravity Wave (9/2), Brother Ralph (5/1), Zilara (8/1), Bamako Du Chatelet (14/1), Esspeegee (14/1), Starlight Mystery (14/1), Forbidding (33/1), Don Keyhoe Tay (125/1)

Verdict

A competitive renewal of this race and preference is for REFRAIN who looks capable of making his presence felt from a nice mark on handicap debut stepped up in trip. Bamako Du Chatelet should start getting competitive again soon from this sort of mark but it's Brother Ralph who could prove to be the main danger in first-time headgear.
