8/1

Losing run stretches all the way back to 2014. Did win on Tapeta that year but he's better over further than this and hasn't been seen since he was well beaten on the beach at Laytown in claiming company.

C&D winner back in March and only narrowly denied over C&D twice in September. Caught too far back here last time out but back to just 1lb above her last winning mark and expected to get competitive.

All four of his AW wins have come at Southwell and well beaten on his two Tapeta starts. Capable off this mark but hasn't been in the best form of late and he will be of more interest back on the Fibresand.

5/1

Two-time C&D winner who is on a losing run at present but she shaped like a return to form was imminent last time out, despite getting outpaced in the early stages, and she's on a workable handicap mark if she can build on that.

Went close over C&D back in September but hasn't quite managed to replicate that level of form in six subsequent course starts. Finished in behind some of these last time out and hard to see him reversing the form here.

C&D winner in November and positioned too far off the pace here last time out. This experienced jockey has won on him before and every chance he can go well for him here off this sort of handicap mark.

Carries a 6lb penalty for a narrow success here last time out when reeling in Novabridge. That was her only win in 16 starts and perhaps vulnerable from these revised weights.

C&D winner but struggling badly for form at present and well beaten behind several of these here last time out. Hard to fancy.

A maiden after nine starts but she shaped like her turn may not be too far away here when last seen. Has an absence to overcome this time though and others make more appeal.

Returned to form when only narrowly denied by Encoded over C&D last time. Had it all his own way on the front end that day and not guaranteed to be given an easy time of it here; others preferred.

Front-runner who looks limited as far as ability is concerned and showed very little on his first start since wind surgery last time.

Shown nothing in eight starts including three outings for this yard and hard to fancy from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Poppy In The Wind (5/1), Windforpower (6/1), Cherry Oak (6/1), Star Cracker (6/1), Encoded (7/1), Archimedes (8/1), Steelriver (8/1), Novabridge (8/1), Sir Walter (25/1), Amazing Amaya (33/1), Fuel Injection (40/1), Argon (80/1)

Verdict

CHERRY OAK wasn't seen to best effect last time but she's better than that and has a course and distance success to her name. She's taken to get the better of Star Cracker who lurks on a reasonable handicap mark and Poppy In The Wind who shaped well last time.
