811-12OR: 143CD

Won this race last year off an 11lb lower mark but has made solid improvement since that success winning twice in the spring. Should be spot on after a recent spin and likely to make a bold bid to win this race again.

511-4OR: 135D

Made steady progress last year before refusing to race on scheduled chasing debut at Uttoxeter in May. Returns from a six month absence here so fitness needs to be taken on trust and the hood is now applied.

511-4OR: 135D

Ex-French performer who won a novice event at Kempton in March before finding Grade 1 company a little hot at Aintree in the spring. Returns from a seven-month break and carries significant promise to do well this year.

Emboleh,t207
410-11OR: 128

Won at Wincanton in February before being well held in the Fred Winter at the Festival. Close-up third on final start last season at Ayr and resumes here off 3lb higher having had a seven-month break.

710-10OR: 127D

Ran a cracker in a Listed Mares contest at Wetherby 10 dasy ago when narrowly denied by Lady Buttons. A repeat of that effort would give her sound claims back in a handicap here.

610-7OR: 124D

Smart flat performer on his day who has also won over hurdles. First start in this sphere for almost a year but is fit from the flat and is impossible to dismiss given his ability in that sphere.

Betting

Forecast

Banditry (6/4), Unison (4/1), Embole (9/2), Mystic Sky (5/1), Distingo (11/2), Don Bersy (12/1)

Verdict

A tight little contest in which Unison is clearly going to make a bold bid to win the race for the second year running. He faces some stern opposition this time around with smart flat performer Banditry impossible to ignore. A bigger threat may well come from both Embole and DISTINGO who both come into the season with lots of potential to rank higher.
