Gained fourth career success at Salisbury but lightly raced since and not performed at that level in three starts. Only 1lb higher here and won over C&D previously so return to form would give him a chance.

2015 C&D success one of 11 in his career. Won twice at Yarmouth in the summer but struggled a little since. Ran well at a big price latest when a close sixth of 12 at Goodwood but still needs a little more off this mark.

All four career successes over 5f and not tackled 6f since January. Unplaced since Bath win in May so more needed particularly over this trip.

13-race maiden but ran well last twice with a pair of seconds and flew home over C&D latest when second. Only raised 1lb for that improved effort and if in the same vein of form today she has a strong chance of getting off the mark.

Decent two-year-old who won over 6f at Brighton. Made belated reappearance at Brighton but stopped fast there over 1m and finished last. 6f may suit better and one of the less exposed runners.

Over two years since his lone win for Roger Varian. Handicap continues to slide after a couple of fourths in his last two starts and surely getting close to a seriously competitive mark now.

12 race maiden ran one of his better races latest when third on the AW at Wolverhampton. Gets another 1lb back here so certainly capable of making the frame once again but win claims more limited.

Back to form of late with back-to-back 7f successes at Leicester and Catterick winning pretty cosily in each. Won over 6f in the past so drop in trip not overly concerning and rates a leading player despite 7lb hike.

Veteran of 133 races still enjoys her racing as shown by comfortable Bath success in the summer. Not been able to get competitive since however although handicap now just 1lb higher so not totally out of this.

Veteran still retains ability as shown by comfortable Brighton success on soft ground in August. Almost took advantage of lower AW mark latest where second showing his wellbeing but higher turf rating makes life tougher.

Good 6f win at Thirsk two starts back before seventh of 14 on AW and 15th of 20 at Ayr but those runs over 5f. Return to this trip will help and only 2lb higher than Thirsk success so big player once again.

Improved efforts last twice for this yard with third at Goodwood over 5f on heavy ground and second latest over 6f on AW at Wolverhampton. Same mark here and goes on all ground so negatives hard to find.

Poor record overall tailed off on return albeit over a vastly different distance of 1m5f. Unknown over this trip but highly likely she will be taken off her feet.

C&D winner two starts back before midfield effort on more familiar AW surface at Lingfield off a 3lb higher mark which remains the same here. Bit more to do but return here has to be seen as a positive.

Not getting any younger and without success since final start of 2017. Handicap sliding but can't take full advantage from 3lb out of the handicap.

11-race maiden has only made the frame once and that back in September three starts back at Brighton. Out of the handicap here so likely to struggle again.

Betting

Forecast

Coastal Drive (6/1), Violet's Lads (6/1), Racquet (6/1), Plucky Dip (8/1), Social Butterfly (10/1), Deeds Not Words (10/1), Mistry (10/1), Whitecrest (12/1), Time Medicean (12/1), Maazel (14/1), Holdenhurst (20/1), John Joiner (25/1), Who Told Jo Jo (25/1), Picket Line (25/1), Perfect Pastime (33/1), Cold Fusion (100/1)

Verdict

VIOLET'S LADS was an eye-catcher over C&D latest when a fast finishing second and she is fancied to go one better today. John Joiner is in good form and rates a big danger with soft ground no issue for him. Racquet should fare better back over 6f and also enters the equation.
