Ended a 26 month losing run when comfortably scoring in basement grade over this C&D but struggled in this class off revised mark at Kempton. Others preferred.

Winner of a 5f Ripon seller for David O'Meara in August but has struggled in two starts for new yard as this is a massive step up in distance.

Bumper third on debut proved her best of four runs in that sphere and has never been competitive since including in three well beaten starts on the Flat.

15-race maiden had her chances for Sylvester Kirk before a disappointing last run. Sold for 1000 gns since and has raced well here on previous two visits. Could be involved on stable debut.

Landed three races in 2017 including one over this C&D. Stayed on well over a mile on stable debut and on a very attractive mark. Can go close.

15-race maiden and little positive to take from his last two starts and the question whether he will be suited by a steep rise in distance.

Has been badly out of form in his last five starts and remains one to swerve in a first-time visor.

Has been sent off at triple-figure odds on all three starts and well beaten each time. Hard to make a case for on handicap debut.

Sole win from 25 starts came off 1lb higher over this C&D and although he has since struggled, his best run came on his only subsequent visit here. Place possibilities.

Struggled to make any sort of impression in three starts for Ed Vaughan. Best watched on stable and handicap debut.

Regressive since her handicap debut win and has largely struggled for her current yard. Hard to make a case for once again.

Been a grand servant for connections with 19-career wins but on a downward spiral and hard to enthuse about currently.

12-race maiden but went close over 1m4f in a weak contest at Lingfield last time. Drop in trip a positive and one of the more likely contenders.

Betting

Forecast

Luxford (6/4), Hard Toffee (3/1), Hidden Dream (4/1), Mistress Nellie (9/2), Good Impression (8/1), Affluence (10/1), River Cafe (12/1), Steel Helmet (16/1), Outlaw Torn (16/1), Estibdaad (20/1), Far Cry (25/1), Muthraab Aldaar (25/1), Sea Tea Dea (33/1), Tidal Surge (50/1), Heaven Up Here (50/1), Harbour Sunrise (66/1)

Verdict

Mistress Nellie was better last time and although she's failed to back up a good run previously, has to be respected in a race lacking depth. River Cafe goes well here and her new trainer has done well with similar cheap purchases. Hidden Dream has an obvious chance to follow up on her first win but a narrow preference is for the well handicapped LUXFORD who hit the line strongly on his stable debut and this trip should prove ideal.
