12/1
Six-time course winner lurking on a very workable handicap mark. Should bounce back at some point and first-time blinkers may help on that front; not ruled out.

7/1
Losing run goes back to 2016 and while he's shown bits of form for his previous yard, he's opposable on debut for his new connections given all his best form is on turf.

7/2
Yet to win in six starts but only narrowly denied here last time out over 1m2f. Has a tougher ask from a wider draw here but less exposed than most and can't be ruled out.

10/1
Still a maiden after 18 starts but a 3lb drop for his most recent effort looks on the lenient side and capable of going well for a yard in form.

9/1
Two-time C&D winner lurking on a very dangerous handicap mark but he's shown nothing in recent starts and needs the first-time cheekpieces to spark a revival.

Off the mark at the ninth attempt here last week but looks up against it from her revised handicap mark here. Wide draw and passed over this time.

33/1
Sole win in 24 starts came at this course but she's been hampered by slow starts of late and only beat one home here last time. Opposable in current form from this draw.

25/1
Unplaced on each of his six starts and just about his worst effort yet here last time out when tailed off. Hard to fancy. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

10/1
Still a maiden after 30 starts (17 Flat outings). Has been running okay in defeat of late but this is one of the more competitive handicaps and others preferred.

33/1
Just one win from 26 starts and that came over 6f at Wolverhampton. Significantly up in trip here and recent starts have lacked any sort of encouragement.

Fianchetto14
Age: 5|  Weight: 8-11| J: S P Davis| T: Mrs D Foster| OR:  45
25/1
Yet to win in 12 Flat starts and her better efforts have come over 1m2f rather than this trip. Drawn well but looks opposable.

Lunastar23
Age: 4|  Weight: 8-11| J: N G McCullagh| T: P W Flynn| OR:  45
6/1
Showed little in maidens on turf but put up a much improved effort on handicap debut after a year off the track and only narrowly denied by a well-handicapped sort over C&D on only subsequent run. Less exposed than most and expected to go well.

Bonnington Lass9
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-9| J: K J Leonard| T: D Marnane| OR:  45
18/1
Still a maiden after 11 starts and failed to build on a fair effort here at the start of the month when only 11th of 13 last time out. Others preferred.

18/1
First Reserve: Losing run is mounting up and while he's run okay on two course starts, including last time, he hardly looks like a winner in waiting.

Forecast

Major Power (7/2), Footsteps At Dawn (5/1), Lunastar (6/1), Munfallet (7/1), Yamato (9/1), Paddytheirishman (10/1), Kendwar (10/1), Eacharn (11/1), Coreczka (12/1), Avalanche (18/1), Bonnington Lass (18/1), Mulzamm (20/1), Turnkey (25/1), Fianchetto (25/1), Piper Bomb (33/1), Hisar (33/1), Dandiesque (50/1)

Verdict

It might be worth taking a chance on the unexposed filly LUNASTAR who is improving with each run and has less miles on the clock than most in here. Mulzamm shaped a little better last time out and can't be ruled out back up in trip while both Kendwar and Coreczka hold each-way claims.
