Beaten just over 4L when fifth of of 12 to Universal Order over 1m here last month (maiden), but started at 28/1 when low-key on nursery debut at Catterick (7f) since; tongue-tie now applied.

AW debut; 1lb higher than when making a winning nursery bow at Musselburgh (7f, good) in August; has produced a trio of lesser efforts since, so has a little to prove.

AW debut; bitterly disappointing and didn't appear to be the most genuine of horses when finishing a tailed-off last of four on her final start for Sir Mark Prescott at Thirsk (1m, good) in August.

29-5OR: 61

Mid to rear division finishes in three starts so far (5f-6f); half-brother to five winners including Folk Opera (1m2f-1m4f), so no real surprise that he's upped in trip on handicap debut.

Consistent since introduced to nurseries and was a decisive winner over C&D latest (beat Naughty Nigel by 1¼L); raised 5lb, but should figure prominently in another modest contest, holding the re-opposing Smashing Lass.

Related to winners over staying trips (1m2f-2m), and is likely to improve with additional racing; makes his handicap debut after finishing seventh of 11 (100/1) to Ride The Monkey in a 7f Redcar maiden latest.

AW debut; half-brother to four winners; slowly away on both starts in nurseries so far (6f-7f), but could prove capable of better from a reduced mark if electing to break on terms.

7f Catterick winner in July (seller), and whilst limited in terms of ability is a likeable and consistent filly; finished just under 1½L third to the re-opposing My Ukulele (now 5lb worse off) over C&D latest; respected.

AW debut; half-brother to four winners; has appeared to find the drop back in trip (5f-6f Hamilton) on the sharp side; possible that he'll fare far better over 7f, but improvement is required.

AW debut; seven-race maiden who has failed to make any significant impression in three nursery starts so far (6f-7f); drops to a career low mark of 50 as a result.

Habitual dweller; showed improved form in first-time cheekpieces when finishing 3¾L third (80/1) to subsequent dual scorer Hard Taskmaster over C&D in September (Smashing Lass second); place chance if able to reproduce.

Brother to the 6f juvenile winner Lost At Sea, but has appeared to be very light on ability so far, with no reason to suspect that the application of a visor will make it fifth-time lucky on the AW.

Betting

Forecast

My Ukulele (7/2), Dothraki (11/2), Call Him Al (7/1), Smashing Lass (7/1), Uncle Norman (8/1), Pageant Master (12/1), The Names Jock (14/1), Fighting Spirit (16/1), You Little Beauty (16/1), Early Edition (16/1), Alfred The Grey (22/1), Klipperty Klopp (25/1), Lady Rouda (40/1), Eagre (50/1)

Verdict

Jason Hart drew a pleasing tune out of MY UKULELE when that consistent filly made a winning AW debut over C&D last month, beating the re-opposing Smashing Lass (third) by 1½L. A subsequent 5lb rise in the weights will slow her progress and give the Ollie Pears-trained filly (winner of a Catterick seller) a chance of reversing those placings, but with very little else of significant note in the line up tonight, this looks to be the ideal race for John Quinn's filly to double up and remain unbeaten on an artificial surface.
