It's now well over two years since her last win (off a mark of 80) at Beverley in June 2016, but front running tactics nearly reaped dividends when beaten a neck over C&D last month; up 3lb with cheekpieces added.

In poor form over the winter months, and not exactly convincing either since returning to the track in July; finished in midfield over 1m2f at Chelmsford latest; feasibly treated but a risky proposition until proving otherwise.

His sole career win came under an enterprising ride over C&D in July 2017 (33/1), and he'd hold a chance on his May Salisbury second, but not the easiest to predict and a win ratio of 1 from 19 (5%) speaks volumes.

Rated in the high 70's in 2015, but had an extended period off the track prior to reappearing in May, and has shown little worthwhile form since; stablemate of Melabi.

14-race maiden; tailed off last of 12 on his final start for Gordon Elliott over the extended mile here in February and absent since; upped in trip on his first appearance for Pat Morris.

On the premises (third) over this trip back on turf at Leicester latest after an extended spell on the Polytrack at Lingfield; won just once in 22 starts (from an 11lb higher mark in November 2016).

14-race maiden who continues in poor form and rates as impossible to recommend.

Not seen too much racing, but well beaten in a seller on his penultimate start, and tailed off on handicap debut at Lingfield in April; no longer in the care of Stan Moore, but notable the tongue-tie is applied on his third start since wind surgery.

Still unexposed and whilst it's a slight worry that her July course second to Angel Of The North (1m1.5f) is an outlier in her overall form profile, it would make her competitive in this race assuming that her stamina reserves last.

Late bloomer, who ran her best race to date on her most recent start when beaten 3L by Spring Praise at Chelmsford (1m2f); clearly nothing special but could be involved in this despite the longer trip.

Verdict

With the greatest of respect to all connections, this is a very moderate conclusion to the Wolverhampton action and a race which makes no appeal whatsoever for betting purposes. However, a winner lies within and that horse could be the prominent racing top-weight GENUINE APPROVAL. John Butler's mare hasn't won anywhere for ages, but had a near miss over C&D latest, so the astute P J McDonald is likely to keep things simple and attempt to go one place better under similar tactics. At far bigger prices, Lenin is worth a cautious glance in the market with the tongue-tie now added.
