Placed three times from 1m2f-1m6f for Sir Michael Stoute in 2017 but little encouragement in three starts for Mick Appleby and two for current connections. Hard to fancy.

12-race maiden but on an attractive mark on a couple of placed efforts. Tailed off last time but in a much higher grade and should be competitive back at this level and trip.

Bought cheaply a year ago from David Simcock but has struggled in three runs for new stable and needs first-time blinkers to have a big effect.

Likeable mare who has won three of her last seven but has looked better suited by an easier surface on turf. More needed now up in distance.

Last win on the Flat came way back in 2012 when trained in Germany by Andreas Wohler and well held over this C&D last time.

Won a seller for Brian Meehan and has run to a similar level in three of four starts for new yard. More needed for win purposes but holds place possibilities.

Seven-race maiden on the turf but running to a very consistent standard. Down in grade and to an attractive mark with more to come now up in trip. Rates a leading contender.

Yet to add to two wins last year for Ralph Beckett last year but has placed on his last three including twice here. Likely to be involved again.

Suited by this step back up in distance following a third in stronger company at Newbury. Gets to race off 5lb lower but yet to place in eight starts on the AW.

Third but ultimately well beaten in a maiden last time and now makes handicap debut. Could improve for this stable now up in trip but much more needed,

Has shown nothing in five starts to date, including twice in handicap company. This is tougher still and easy to dismiss from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Earthly (5/2), Contingency Fee (7/2), Affair (6/1), Reactive (6/1), Heron (7/1), With Hindsight (8/1), Wadacre Gigi (10/1), Lily Ash (12/1), Splash Around (20/1), Goldslinger (20/1), Slowfoot (25/1), Tetradrachm (40/1), Fireguard (66/1)

Verdict

Affair is well in on her AW handicap mark but still has to translate that turf form to this type of surface. Earthly is in consistent form and although he's proving hard to win with, is likely to be thereabouts. It might be worth forgiving Heron his last run and perhaps the first-time cheekpieces will help him take advantage of a good mark. REACTIVE is also well handicapped, lightly-raced and the way he's been hitting the line, should appreciate this extra test of stamina.
