Hit the ground running in the spring, and already having third start when winning at Kempton in April. Hard to place and below form since, and now drops in grade with a hood applied. Could well bounce back at this lowly level.

Exposed as modest, and has compromised any chance he may have had with slow starts on last couple of outings. Even his best isn't good enough if the principals run to form.

Has quickly found his level, and both runs in nurseries have been creditable without suggesting he's got anything in hand. Drops in class, but meets many of his rivals on disadvantageous terms, so this is not an easy task.

Best effort to date when midfield in valuable seller at York in June, but well beaten in maiden company last time, and hard to fancy in what is a strong race of its type now.

Well held on debut at Lingfield and set a stiff task when last to finish in novice company at Bath (1m) last time. Drop in trip not an obvious plus, and he has plenty to find on the figures.

Has only beaten a couple of rivals in total to date, and fitting of a hood and cheekpieces doesn't do much to encourage support.

Seemed to improve a little when runner-up to Capla Gilda in a nursery here on her penultimate outing, but ran poorly in a C&D seller here last time, which raises doubts about her reliability. Place claims if bouncing back.

Just modest, but her best efforts have come here, and she appreciated the drop to selling company when third of 9 to Queen of Scheme over 7f last time. Place prospects assuming she can break more alertly than is sometimes the case.

Not disgraced in a Leicester nursery on latest start, and placed in claiming company at Beverley prior to that. Essentially reliable, and she should be competitive at this lowly level based on the balance of her form.

In the frame several times in varied company, although not quite at her best when third of 11 to The Galla Girl in a C&D seller last time. This looks a deeper contest, and she needs to find her A-game to play a major part..

Not competitive in nursery company two starts back, and showed more when fifth of 9 to Queen of Scheme in a 7f seller here last time, but that effort suggests she has her work cut out once more.

Betting

Forecast

Capla Gilda (5/2), Dinas Powys (3/1), March For Men (9/2), Darwina (5/1), Elieden (5/1), Pimlico Pleaser (17/2), Shescominghome (10/1), Wayfaring Stranger (11/1), Not So Shy (12/1), Arthur's Spirit (12/1), Ramsbottom (14/1), Majestic Appeal (33/1), Willett (100/1)

Verdict

It's very hard to get away from the claims of CAPLA GILDA, who is a multiple winner, and essentially a bit better than this grade. The hooded Arthur's Spirit has faced some stiff tasks since winning at Kempton in April, and could bounce back to form with this welcome drop in class. Elieden has been running creditably on the whole, and has solid place claims on her first try at this level.
