411-2OR: D
10/1

Four-time Flat winner (77-rated), who got off to the perfect start over timber when bravely holding on by a neck from the more experienced West Coast Lass at Musselburgh (2m, good) 16 days ago; penalised and softer ground a concern.

510-10OR: BF
2/5

Beaten favourite on her hurdles debut at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) last month, but emerged with plenty of credit in chasing home the promising Highland Hunter (Lucinda Russell); every chance of going one better dropped in trip today.

410-10OR:
12/1

68-rated on the Flat (1m2f winner); improved upon her debut hurdles effort when finishing a safely held 7¾L fourth to Imperial Acolyte at Wetherby (2m, good to soft) latest.

510-10OR:
40/1

3m Dawstown maiden PTP winner (May 2018); far from disgraced on hurdles debut at this track (2m4f, soft) last month when finishing a weakening fourth of 11 to Stoney Rover (her owner also saddled the runner-up Hill Sixteen); dropped in trip.

710-10OR: 116BF
4/1

Nine-race hurdles maiden with an official rating of 115; off the track since disappointing at Sedgefield in March (2m1f, soft), so a slight guessing game with regards her overall well-being; market likely informative on seasonal reappearance.

Betting

Forecast

Derriana Spirit (2/5), Paper Roses (4/1), Iconic Belle (10/1), Drumochter (12/1), Madam Cloud (40/1)

Verdict

A small-field affair in which the most appealing option is DERRIANA SPIRIT. She found the progressive Highland Hunter too strong on hurdles debut at Ayr (2m4f) last month, but acquitted herself well overall and should prove well suited by dropping back in trip. The soft/heavy ground is a major concern with regards the Musselburgh scorer Iconic Belle, so with Paper Roses making her seasonal reappearance the more speculative forecast shout is Madam Cloud.
