7/1

Made steady progress this season - culminating with a gritty win at Sandown at the start of this month. Up 4lb for that success but still potentially has room to manoeuvre from her current mark; worth a betting check. Rider's claim helps too.

6/1

Won four of her last five starts and obviously remains in good heart. Shot up 18lb in the handicap as a result, however, and now faces her sternest test to date. Also debut at an AW track so needs to prove she'll handle the surface.

4lb better off with Blanchefleur after their encounter at Sandown (but also held on a previous effort) and plenty of work to do if she's going to reverse the form. Possible she'll have to settle for a minor role once more.

10/1

Has experience of this course but has been struggling to find her level since being upped to this sort of trip. Finished last in both her each of her last two starts and is another will plenty to prove.

Not made much impact in three previous starts and difficult to fancy on that evidence. Gelded since his last outing and will have the assistance of a tongue tie, but over-all profile suggests others will have his measure.

Kept very busy since her introduction, indeed this will be her 19th start of the calendar year. However, the filly has notched up a string of consistent efforts and is respected despite a career highest mark. Polytrack debut has to be a concern.

39-1OR: 64BFCD
5/1

C&D winner on his penultimate start but well held from his revised mark over 1m2f last time out. Still doesn't have too many miles on the clock and likely to be suited by the return to 1m. Solid place claims at least.

38-3OR: 52
25/1

0-9 so far and has shown mixed form since joining his current yard. Has experience of the surface but does have a bit to prove over the trip, however, and others look more convincing.

Betting

Forecast

Croque Monsieur (10/3), Dance Me (9/2), Plentyinthetanksir (5/1), Plansina (5/1), Choral Music (6/1), Blanchefleur (7/1), Any Little Rhyme (10/1), Mischievous Rock (25/1)

Verdict

Top weight may not be enough to stop BLANCHFLEUR in this company and he is taken to uphold recent form with Dance Me en route to boosting his profile. Plentyinthetanksir is unexposed over the trip and edges out Plansina as the best alternative from the rest.
  1. Blanchefleur
  2. Dance Me
  3. Plentyinthetanksir
