Showed a fair bit of improvement at Thirsk (6f, good to soft) when last seen. Returns to a longer trip for this nursery debut. Mark looks stiff enough, but could be more to come and not ruled out.

Produced her best effort yet when 2L third at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) last time. Enters nurseries back up in trip and on a stiff enough mark, but is likely to be competitive.

Respectable effort to be beaten just over 4L on his second nursery start at Leicester (7f, good to firm) last time. Drops 1lb here and is another who could have a say.

Improving with each run and is likely to be suited by this step up in trip for his nursery debut. Mark looks stiff, but support for him would be interesting.

Another who has come on with each race and was beaten less than 3L over C&D (good) when last seen in a novice event. Looks better treated than some here on that evidence and could go close.

Has shown some promise in all three runs, her best being her second one at Leicester (6f, good to firm) last month. If she can repeat or better that from this initial mark then she would have claims. Step up in trip looks positive.

Won a Ripon seller (6f, good) in July. Best effort followed that when beaten just ¾L in a 7f Catterick novice event. Looks well treated here based on that performance, but has to put a modest effort behind him from Beverley last time.

Not devoid of promise in three runs for Nigel Tinkler and also his latest effort, on nursery/stable debut for this trainer. Should be capable of improvement and needs it to figure from the same mark.

Beaten just ½L here in a novice event (5f, good to firm) in May. Has gone backwards since then, including on nursery debut at Wolverhampton last time. Best watched.

Enters nurseries on a stiff mark from what we have seen in three runs so far. 7lb claim will help, but others make greater appeal this time.

28/1

Improved with each of his first three runs, but well beaten last of eight on nurdery debut (7f, good) at Musselburgh last time. Just a 1lb drop suggests that he will need improvement, but not ruled out if he could repeat last month's Ripon form.

Not without promise on his first two outings, but well held last time. Initial mark looks on the stiff side on the bare form of all that, so probably one to watch unless market vibes are strong.

Betting

Forecast

Reddiac (11/4), Mecca's Gift (9/2), Jackamundo (13/2), Schnapps (8/1), Irv (17/2), Tie A Yellowribbon (12/1), Uncle Norman (12/1), Furyan (12/1), The Big Bad (16/1), Alfred The Grey (28/1), George's Law (33/1), Cheerupmylove (33/1)

Verdict

Plenty of imponderables here with so many of them having their first crack at a nursery and the suggestion is to side with one of those, MECCA'S GIFT, to prevail. Michael Dods' filly has experience at the track and looks to be on a fairer mark than some. Schnapps is another similar case and could go well, with other possible contenders coming from The Big Bad, Rediac, Irv and Tie A Yellowribbon.
