1m2f Haydock winner in the Spring has placed in two of three races since including over 1m4f at Doncaster latest although that just a four-runner affair. Handicapper gives 1lb back but remains high enough and trip here on the sharp side.

Lightly raced this summer but won a 1m2f contest on the AW at Lingfield. Not really gone on since with three unplaced runs back on turf and others make more appeal.

A winner here last season over 1m but not much encouragement in form this year. Eased a further 4lb today after finishing last of seven at Windsor last month over a C&D she'd previously won over. Hard to fancy.

1m2f Sandown maiden winner last term for Richard Hannon but of luck since. Minor promise in four starts for current yard. Surely getting close to a competitive mark but not seen enough to recommend.

20/1 Ffos Las maiden winner over 7½f after a 15-month absence on her stable debut. Open to plenty of improvement now with that run under her belt and looked likely to get further so has to be considered against several out of form rivals.

Won a 1m½f Hamilton novice auction race in her fourth start before making a good start to her handicapping career when second of seven at Salisbury. 3lb higher here but suggest she's still improving so looks a leading contender.

1m2f winner here in June hasn't really gone on from that with ordinary efforts at Nottingham and Wolverhampton before a remote third at Brighton latest. Trip here sharp enough and more needed.

Four-time AW winner won on soft ground over 1m at Yarmouth this year. Narrow second here at 33/1 the start of a good sequence of placed efforts of late and in current form he ought to go well.

Three-time AW winner has rarely looked as effective on turf and only beaten one rival home in last two races since reverting to the surface. Hard to fancy.

Betting

Forecast

Hellovaqueen (9/2), Bristol Missile (5/1), Abel Tasman (11/2), Misu Pete (6/1), Warmhearted (6/1), Bayston Hill (8/1), Kyllachys Tale (8/1), The Lords Walk (8/1), Windsorlot (9/1), Presence Process (33/1)

Verdict

This race doesn't look likely to take a great deal of winning so the presence of the very unexposed Ffos Las winner HELLOVAQUEEN is most interesting and Richard Hughes' filly should be able to improve on her return and therefore gets the nod. Archie Watson's Warmhearted is the obvious danger after a good run at Salisbury last time but a 3lb penalty swings the verdict against her. Of the rest Misu Pete has been in as good a form as any and with a nice racing weight he should continue his solid run of form.
