Course regular who was struggling for form when last seen in July, but she takes a marked drop in class with blinkers fitted, and only once out of the first two in seven runs at Class 6 level at the track, and won this race last year.

Runner-up over C&D in April off 2lb lower, and has filled the same spot on three of four subsequent starts on turf. Hi one poor run came immediately after wind surgery on penultimate start, and he can contend if reacting well to a first-time visor.

Won on the Flat at Lingfield in May, but has gone off the boil subsequently over hurdles, and ran poorly under an inexperienced amateur on return to this discipline at Windsor last month.

Shaped with a degree of promise in novice events at Windsor in June, but disappointed on AW debut at Chelmsford. Not entirely disgraced after a slow start on handicap debut at former track, but more required from stiff-looking mark.

Unplaced in five starts to date (first four for Willie McCreery in Ireland) and beaten 13L when seventh of nine on handicap debut last time out. Plenty to prove, for all she's in good hands.

Won a 7f handicap here in February, and runner-up from 2lb higher mark in March. Well below form on last couple of starts, but handicapper has given him a chance, and he stays this trip, so isn't without a chance.

Bounced back to form after a break when getting up late to land a C&D handicap in September, but just respectable efforts on both subsequent starts, albeit well backed last time. Needs to find more to defy her mark with cheekpieces refitted.

Placed five times in handicaps since switched from Ed Dunlop at the start of the summer, and easy enough to forgive a rare poor effort at Chelmsford last time. Tongue tie her wore there is left off, and better expected.

Hinted at a return to form on penultimate start, and beat Boxatricks by ½L over C&D last time. Now 5lb higher, but still lower in the weights than for two previous C&D successes.

First-time blinkers did the trick when winning at Chelmsford in August and runner-up off 3lb lower mark there last month. Just a respectable effort here last time, though, and may be in the handicapper's grip now.

Improved on first try for Jessica Harrington when winning 7f Roscommon handicap in June. Not matched that form for current yard, but fared better when fourth at Chelmsford last time, and is beginning to look well treated.

Newbury winner in August and decent efforts to be placed twice prior to a disappointing run under this rider at Windsor. Not as good on AW, but mark reflects that, so not impossible he'll bounce back.

No threat on both handicap starts to date, merely running on through beaten rivals at Wolverhampton last time, and while he will do better in time, he's eligible for weaker races than this.

Betting

Forecast

Pike Corner Cross (7/4), Barrsbrook (5/1), Global Wonder (13/2), Magic Mirror (13/2), Lothario (8/1), Magwadiri (8/1), Red Gunner (10/1), Misu Pete (12/1), Fair Selene (12/1), Ensign Ewart (20/1), New Street (20/1), Chilton Foliat (25/1), Frozen Lake (33/1), Jackblack (66/1)

Verdict

PIKE CORNER CROSS is up 5lb for his recent C&D win, but is still lower in the weights than for a couple of previous wins here, so is expected to make a bold bid to follow up. Last year's winner Magic Mirror has a much better chance than form figures indicate, assuming she's fit after a break, with Magwadiri the type to do well for shrewd connections this winter, and not ruled out.
