2/1

In cracking form after wins at Beverley and Nottingham on his last two starts. Another 6lb to shoulder here. Has won here before and has to be taken seriously in his bid for a hat-trick.

0-19. Was competitive over 7f here last time, when beaten just over 1L from today's mark. If he can better that then he could go very close and it is worth noting that his career-best was recorded over this trip.

Goes well here and has twice won over C&D, the more recent from a stone higher, albeit it in March 2017. Not as good now, but was 3L second over C&D last time, from the same mark, so can't be ruled out.

Enjoys it here, though has only managed one 7f win at the venue. Has made the frame three times over C&D from lower marks, is fully exposed and probably has each-way claims again if overcoming a wide draw.

0-13. Beaten 2L into third here over 1m1½f in November, when 2lb higher. Has had just two runs since and been well held. If back at that level of form from last year, she has a squeak, but not has a bit to prove.

28-race maiden. Recorded her career-best here in a C&D maiden in 2016, but not as good these days. Inconsistent, but not written off if on a good day.

Is better at Chelmsford and Kempton than when she has visited here. Well held in all her last three starts on turf and her last two on AW, and while she is dropping in the handicap, she is not easy to fancy.

Has gone 12 starts without a win since last doing so at Chelmsford in March, when 5lb higher. Has won three times here over 1m½f (Tapeta) and plenty more when it was Polytrack, so not dismissed out of hand, but has a bit to prove.

0-22, but probably at her moderate best when visiting here. Difficult to fancy for the win, but has been placed a few times from similar marks and is not ruled out of the frame.

Won a 7f Lingfield handicap last year, but has struggled to show anything in recent months. Sold for £1,500 last month and now makes debut for this trainer. Watching brief advised.

Won here over 6f/7f when it was Polytrack, but has only scored once since 2013 (at Southwell). Does handle this surface, but has been well held on all starts this year. Others preferred.

Well beaten in a couple of maidens and also 9L adrift on second when last seen here in a 7f claimer last month. Initial mark looks stiff enough based on that, so she is probably best watched.

Comfortably her best effort was when beaten over 3L into fourth at Ripon (1m) in novices company a year ago. Way below that level in three turf runs this year and now makes AW debut. Well treated on her best, so market check wise.

Betting

Forecast

Stringybark Creek (2/1), Topology (4/1), Celtic Artisan (9/2), Noneedtotellme (9/1), Final Attack (12/1), Foxy's Spirit (14/1), Joyful Dream (16/1), Sea Tea Dea (22/1), Unsuspected Girl (22/1), Indiana Dawn (25/1), Amelia George (28/1), Outlaw Torn (40/1), Fossa (100/1)

Verdict

A moderate contest, with plenty of them having points to prove and STRINGYBARK CREEK looks capable of capitalising on his good form to defy another 6lb penalty and score. Topology could be involved in the hunt for some prize money, with Celtic Artisan and Joyful Dream. Noneedtotellme is another with each-way claims, while money for Foxy's Spirit on her first try on this surface would be interesting.
