0-5, but was improving with each run until held last time over 5f at Wolverhampton. Blinkers swapped back for cheekpieces (ran well in them on penultimate start over 6f), and on a competitive mark. Not ruled out.

Won a 5f maiden (good to firm) at Musselburgh last year and added a 6f Catterick handicap (good to soft) from 8lb higher, both for Mark Johnston. Beaten 1¼L from this mark on stable debut last time. Headgear on. In the mix.

Seeking a hat-trick after wins at both Lingfield (AW) and Newmarket (good to firm) over this trip. Up 2lb for the latter, which was in a slightly better race than this. Still improving and should make a bold bid.

Both wins have come on fast ground, including here over C&D last month, when springing a 20-1 surprise in a 0-65, from 6lb lower. Well below that level last time, inconsistent, but clearly can't be written off at this sort of level.

0-9. Ran well on soft ground at both Ripon and Doncaster (6f) in the spring, from similar marks. Held over 7f on AW last time, but if the rains come then he would have each-way claims from this mark.

Was beaten just a head from 1lb higher at Pontefract (6f, soft) in May. Faster ground and a few pounds rise have put paid to him since. Has now changed hands and makes debut for this stable. Interesting if conditions soften. Market check.

Has run a couple of respectable races in defeat here, going closest to winning when beaten less than 2L over 7f at the track in June. 1lb higher here and dropped in trip with headgear on. Should be thereabouts.

Betting

Forecast

Faithful Promise (5/2), Affluence (4/1), Nampara (9/2), Shortbackandsides (11/2), Dreamboat Annie (13/2), Billiebrookedit (9/1), Capla Demon (10/1), Isabella Mayson (20/1)

Verdict

If the forecast rain arrives and changes conditions, Shortbackandsides would look well worth consideration from this mark, while Billiebrookedit is another to whom those comments apply. Capla Demon, Nampara and Affluence look less reliant on that, as does FAITHFUL PROMISE, who won't mind either way and is taken to get her nose in front again here.
