3/1

Shed maiden status and landed a significant gamble in the process when winning 6f handicap at Newcastle last week. Did that from a basement mark, and not especially well treated in this company, but can't be ignored.

Hasn't fired this season, but fared better on first start after wind surgery when front-running 4L fifth of 14 at Catterick (7f, good) early this month. Drop to 6f will suit, and he can go well if adopting similar tactics.

Much his best effort in recent times when winning on fast ground at Chepstow (6f) in August, but two starts since have seen him well beaten, and hasn't figured in previous AW outings.

Hasn't won for over two years, but has hinted at a return to form on last couple of starts, and latest fifth of 13 to Emily Goldfinch at Chelmsford has been boosted by the winner subsequently. Interesting.

Hasn't progressed since good second at Windsor on 2017 return, but this well-related mare is perhaps not fully exposed after six lifetime starts, and either the return to 6f or fitting of blinkers could spark improvement here.

Has ability, but no coincidence that he's won just once from 43 starts, and often delivers less than looks likely in his races. Plenty of in-frame efforts this year to give him place claims, but opposable for win purposes.

Sole win came at Bath last summer for Mick Channon, and back to form when third of 11 over 5½f there last month, but has run poorly since, and balance of her form for current yard leaves her a bit to find.

Had shown ability in novice company prior to an eyecatching run on handicap bow at Yarmouth (7f). Good third to a subsequent winner on AW next time, but well held behind Billyfairplay at Newcastle last time, and needs to prove that was just a blip.

Bred for speed, but has looked very limited in all four starts, and always behind from basement mark on handicap debut at Newcastle.

Well held on first four starts, but did show a little more when beaten 4L in a 7f handicap here last time, meeting trouble when trying to mount a challenge. May do better, but isn't well treated at the weights in this event.

Has improved at a modest level since fitted with a tongue tie earlier this year, winning at Kempton in June, and making frame on four of five subsequent starts. Good third at that venue last time, and leading claims at these weights.

Produced a much improved effort on handicap debut over 5f at Catterick last month (close-up fourth to Boudica Bay), and again shaped as if 6f would suit when keeping-on fifth at Newcastle last time. Not dismissed.

Place claims on early-season form when in the frame on turf/AW over 7f, but he's not really gone on, and no excuses when fifth to Billyfairplay at Newcastle last time. Tougher task out of handicaps here.

Betting

Forecast

Billyfairplay (3/1), Navarra Princess (9/2), Unnoticed (9/2), Silently (17/2), Eternal Destiny (9/1), Cupid's Arrow (10/1), Viking Way (12/1), Mystical Moon (12/1), Little Miss Kodi (14/1), The Bull (20/1), Aquadabra (20/1), Jacksonfire (40/1), Mountain Of Stars (100/1)

Verdict

NAVARRA PRINCESS has much the most solid profile in the line-up, and looks sure to go close with the weights in her favour. Cupid's Arrow will appreciate cutting back in trip after showing more after a wind-op last time, and looks the main danger, although the well-bred Silently is lightly raced for her age, and could easily click in first-time blinkers.
  1. Navarra Princess
  2. Cupid's Arrow
