7/1

Without a win since May 2016, and 0-7 on the AW, but not beaten all that far on his penultimate start (third), and dropped 3lb since his run in a Class 3 handicap at Ascot last month; more realistic assignment.

Difficult to pinpoint the reason for a lacklustre showing last month, but in good shape prior to that, and just 4lb higher than when scoring by ¾L from Weloof over C&D in June.

Not seen much racing, but placed on both starts in handicap company, including when a close up third over C&D last month; major chance off the same mark if able to reproduce that level of form.

Long in the tooth, but 9lb below her last winning mark (September 2016), and finished runner-up to Viola Park on her last AW start at Kempton (7f) in May.

Knows his way around here blindfolded (four-time 6f winner), but raced keenly when finishing sixth over this trip latest, and has plenty on with Counter Spirit (third) on that evidence.

Beaten just 2L in a 6f claimer here in July (Pushkin Museum behind), and claimed from Mick Appleby for £4,000; bogged down in the Newmarket mud on stable debut, but now returns to a more suitable contest.

Irish raider who was a winner on quick ground at Leopardstown (7f) last month, but was unable to get home after adopting forcing tactics in a C&D fillies' handicap on Monday; not without a chance if ridden with more restraint.

Bang out of form on turf since returning from a six month absence; his last win came in a Leicester seller in the summer of 2017 (for David Barron), and it's got to be a worry to see the cheekpieces now being sought.

Had a short break (and wind surgery) since running at Bath in June (1m, firm), but competitively handicapped if that's done the trick; fully effective at Dunstall Park (regular C&D scorer) and noteworthy to see P J McDonald booked.

89-1OR: 59CD

Best on the AW (4-41), and is a three-time C&D winner; sits just a couple of pounds above his last winning mark, and was narrowly denied at Newcastle last week, so should be thereabouts.

Showed initial promise for Brian Meehan as a three-year-old, but moved on in November for just £8,000; failed to beat a single rival in three starts for this trainer dropping 14lbs in the handicap as a result.

Forecast

Counter Spirit (7/4), Grey Destiny (5/1), Secret Memories (6/1), Fieldsman (7/1), Juan Horsepower (8/1), Caledonia Laird (10/1), Showdance Kid (12/1), Pushkin Museum (14/1), Cadeaux Boxer (16/1), Sarangoo (25/1), African Blessing (28/1), Alqalsar (33/1)

Verdict

Wolverhampton regulars Grey Destiny and Caledonia Laird are entitled to be on the premises, with the latter named particularly interesting under P J McDonald if able to show any further improvement for wind surgery (the market could prove helpful), but the least exposed runner in the race is COUNTER SPIRIT. She has made a pleasing start to life in handicap company, and has done well to avoid the unwanted attentions of the handicapper after her eye-catching staying on third to De Little Engine over C&D last month. Of the remainder, the top-weight Fieldsman should relish this marked ease in grade.
