17:05 Chepstow Thu 16 August 2018
Winner of a couple of races in 2017 but has twice been withdrawn when a soft surface has been deemed unsuitable. Top apprentice on board but forecast conditions an obvious worry.
Winner of 10 races who has not been at his best this summer but who will be happier on this slower surface. Has won here twice over 7f.
Shed her maiden tag at Brighton last week but 1lb wrong in the weights under her penalty and facing different underfoot conditions. Her brother, Danecase, has done all his winning on better going.
Suited to these conditions and below her winning mark. In poor form lately but showed in 2017 she can bounce from a mediocre effort when conditions are right.
Apart from a poor run over a longer trip she has been really consistent in 2018 and she can adapt to any going. Weighted to give another good account.
Has shown a poor standard of AW form and stable have gone almost 400 days without a Flat winner. Makes turf debut on the slowest ground she has encountered.
Her best effort by far came on a soft terrain in April. Had some stiff tasks at the weights thereafter but third in a seller last time wearing cheekpieces. Down another 3lb with a jockey booking that catches the eye.
13-race maiden debuts for new yard and tackles a new trip. Best effort came here on soft ground so some grounds for optimism if she stays.
Has won here three times (twice over C&D) and best effort this term came here in June. Has disappointed twice since but no surprise if she bounced back here off a more attractive mark and on ideal ground.
Scored at Yarmouth in 2017 but has finished last on all three starts this year. Drops in trip for this but impossible to fancy.
By a sire who was unplaced on his only start. Has looked modest in her four runs so far and the handicapper has taken a cautious view of those efforts.
16-race maiden was last of 13 on his most recent start and that makes him unappealing, especially as he underperformed on last encounter with a soft surface.
Yet to make the frame in 16 starts and another new headgear combination is tried. Good young rider on board and that the only positive.
Won a 7f Lingfield handicap last year, but has struggled to show anything in recent months. Sold for £1,500 last month and made an inauspicious debut for this trainer who now fits a tongue-tie.
Nathaniel filly who fetched 10,000gns as a yearling and is from a family which contains winners from 6f to 1m. Showed little in three maidens last term and now makes handicap debut on a modest mark against exposed sorts.
Produced a career best on handicap debut here last week following a 14-month break. Bred to handle a soft surface and well-drawn.
