2/1

Former Godolphin inmate who has really clicked of late for new stable with a second at Leicester (winner has franked the form since) and a strong finish to win at Nottingham. Can defy a 6lb penalty.

Broke through at the ninth time of asking but just her second run for current trainer before struggling over further back in handicap company. Drop in grade and distance should suit and has more to offer.

Six-race maiden who didn't get a clear run over 7f at Newcastle and remains open to improvement back up to this trip. Needs to show she handles cut in the ground but one of the more likely types.

Four-race maiden has made progress in her last two starts including on handicap debut. Seemed unsuited by a slow pace over 1m2f and although the drop in trip is a negative the likely faster tempo should help her settle. Rates a contender.

Posted back-to-back wins at the start of the season but then lost her way in following two efforts. Returned from a break to be tailed off at Kempton and looks best watched at present.

Has seven lengths to find with Pure Shores from Leicester when hanging badly. Possibly needs quicker ground to be seen at her best and others preferred.

Nicely-bred filly who is lightly-raced and presumably has had her problems. Posted her best effort so far on handicap debut but looked a touch one-paced and improvement required.

The hood had the desired effect with a place and an easy win before proving very disappointing over 1m2f. Drop in trip will help but more progress needed in this grade.

Won on her second start last term as a juvenile but looks to have gone the wrong way in five outings so far this term. Well behind Pure Shores at Leicester and hard to recommend.

Siyouni filly who lost her rider early on debut and hasn't shown a great deal in three starts since. Big improvement needed to be involved.

Won a modest Wolverhampton contest and has struggled off revised mark since. Questions to answer following latest poor run at Chepstow.

Betting

Forecast

Side Effect (11/8), Pure Shores (2/1), Anaakeed (8/1), Elation (10/1), Culdrose (12/1), Geranium (12/1), Teenage Gal (12/1), Classified (22/1), Rippling Waters (25/1), Nyala (25/1), Milan Reef (25/1), Lily Of Year (33/1), Dashing Poet (40/1), Cooperess (50/1)

Verdict

PURE SHORES has seemed to appreciate easier going when showing big progress in her last two runs and the way she hit the line last time suggests she can quickly follow up. Rippling Waters shouldn't be discounted back at a more suitable distance while Culdrose will benefit from the extra test. We haven't seen the best of Anaakeed yet and when she learns to settle, she should make the grade.
  1. Pure Shores
  2. Rippling Waters
  3. Culdrose
