9/1

Three wins from nine starts on AW, all on Tapeta at Wolverhampton. Well beaten last time when inconvenienced by being held up off a slow pace at Lingfield but yard in better form now and expected to bounce back on his preferred surface.

49-6OR: 74CD
11/2

Two-time C&D winner who returned from an absence with a good second of 14 over C&D last time. Up 2lb and this is probably a deeper race but not one to put a line through.

8/1

Three-time C&D winner who is back below his last winning handicap mark having been dropped 1lb for his run at Wolverhampton last time. Can't be ruled out back here, though yard form has to be a major concern.

Looked like an exciting prospect in 2015 but has shown very little in three recent starts since returning from two years off the track and others make more appeal.

C&D winner who has run well on each of his four course starts, including when fifth of 14 here last time out. Dropped 1lb and has each-way claims.

Best efforts have come at Kempton and ran okay there last time out on return from an absence. Might not have the speed for this test though; makes Tapeta debut.

7/2

Three-time C&D winner and while he failed to justify short priced favouritism here last time out, he was probably left with a bit too much to do. Leniently dropped 1lb for that and expected to go close.

Has been in really good form around Southwell of late and unlucky not to have held on there last week. Drop back to 5f isn't certain to be ideal but can't be ruled out if his jockey gets the fractions right from the front.

Won over this trip at Southwell in November, a first win in his career but he's failed to back that up subsequently. Needs first-time cheekpieces to bring about plenty of improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Another Angel (7/2), Wiff Waff (11/2), Casterbridge (11/2), First Excel (6/1), Lord Of The Glen (8/1), Miracle Works (9/1), Laubali (9/1), Pea Shooter (11/1), Jan Van Hoof (22/1), Fink Hill (25/1)

Verdict

ANOTHER ANGEL had excuses last time out and he's taken to gain compensation in a competitive finale. Pea Shooter always runs his race around here and is a solid each-way player while First Excel can't be ruled out, particularly if he can gain an uncontested lead.
