A winner twice on the AW this year he's also run well on turf here (1m, soft) and again ran well back on the AW last time. Best with a strong pace to run at he'll need the scenario to be seen at his best here; usually slow away.

Now having her third run for this yard since leaving Robert Cowell she's shown up well enough in two AW runs over 7f. Has to now prove that she can transfer that form onto the turf but enters calculations if she can.

Lightly-raced and still a maiden he was well supported on the AW last time over this trip but failed to get competitive having been left poorly placed. Cheekpieces go on now for the first-time as he makes his debut for a new yard; more needed.

Maiden who comes from a powerful yard but looks very much one of their lesser lights with a record that reads 0-9. Below form all three starts this year and looks very much as though she will struggle again here.

With a record of 1-34 he's not one to be rushing to support even in this lowly grade and is easy enough oppose having shown very little of late.

Managed one of her better runs at Epsom last time out with cheekpieces on for the first-time. Still raced freely though which detracted from her finishing effort; claims if she settles better this time off a basement mark.

Showed plenty of enthusiasm and ran her best race so far when 2nd over 1m here on her penultimate start. Trapped wide from a poor draw last time that run is best ignored; still fairly unexposed and given a bright chance on her previous visit here.

Makes her handicap debut having had just three runs (has only beaten one rival home so far). Hard to really fancy on her work so far and others present a more cogent case.

Betting

Forecast

Sandkissed (3/1), Sir Jamie (7/2), Following Breeze (4/1), Kodiac Pearl (11/2), Shoyd (9/1), Malaysian Boleh (10/1), Tommy Boy (16/1), Rising Sunshine (33/1), One More Dawn (66/1)

Verdict

Rather like the first division of this low-grade handicap caution is advised but it might pay to take a chance with SANDKISSED who ran a race full of promise on her penultimate start here and can be excused her last start. Following Breeze has also shown some progress of late and she enters the argument if she settles better while a return here and with a visor back on Malaysian Boleh will enjoy a return to this grade. Sir Jamie needs a strongly run race to be seen at his best and that scenario may not materialise while Kodiac Pearl has to prove she can replicate her AW form on turf.
