89-8OR:
100/1

Won a Perth novices' handicap hurdle in June, 2016, but was off the track for the best part of to years before finishing down the field in Flat contests at Hamilton and Ayr. This looks to be another step on the way back.

49-7OR: BFD
6/4

Winner and runner-up at Ayr on only starts so far. Promising sort from an in-form stable, but has to concede 7lb to the other three-year-olds.

Gelded son of Harbour Watch who cost 8,000 gns as a yearling and is from the family of a couple of decent performers over 6f. Best watched on debut unless the market speaks heavily in his favour.

Gelded son of Nathaniel who fetched 45,000 gns as a yearling and is a half-brother to the yard's useful sprinter Distinctive. Kept on well near the finish when sixth of 14 over 7f on debut at Wetherby and should improve.

Dubawi brother to Isabel's On It, who was a 7f maiden winner for the yard. Slowly into stride when fourth of 12 in a Chelmsford novice event on debut and should be wiser for the experience.

Shamardal gelding who fetched only £3,500 at the Doncaster sales in September and whose dam was placed in Listed company in France. Nice pedigree, but that cheap purchase price is offputting.

Definite signs of ability in novice/maiden events at Kempton and Haydock. Needs to take a step forward to land this, but stable is going well and he has to be considered.

Frankel colt who is a half-brother to a few winners including top sprint handicapper Hoof It. Never landed a blow after being slowly away on debut at Windsor and can be expected to do better this time.

Well beaten on both starts at Beverley and Doncaster. Hard to fancy against a few of these and looks the type to do better when handicapping.

48-9OR:
7/2

Fair debut at Kempton in November and improved to be second of eight at Chepstow last month. Looks a work in progress, but receives weight from all but one of her rivals and enters calculations.

Betting

Forecast

Addis Ababa (6/4), Extra Large (5/2), Sweet Lady Rose (7/2), Perisher (8/1), Rise Hall (14/1), Dejan (25/1), Sheedy (66/1), Box And Cox (66/1), Dubai Shen (100/1), Last Glance (125/1)

Verdict

Perisher and Sweet Lady Rose have shown enough to suggest they should figure for their strong stables, but this prize can stay in the North courtesy of ADDIS ABABA. As the only previous winner in the field, he has to concede weight to all bar one of his rivals, but he boasts the best level of form. Extra Large and Rise Hall look lively improvers.
