16/1

Southwell winner who has been running poorly over fences of late (broke a blood vessel last time), and while he should do better back on the Flat if a visor has a positive effect, it's not easy to see him winning.

Wore cheekpieces on the Flat in France for Carlos Laffon-Parias, scoring twice, and a winner over hurdles here for current yard. Ran poorly on most recent start when visored, but could do better in former headgear now switching codes.

Goes well here, and has found a new lease of life upped in trip of late, winning over 1m4f here last month. Looks competitive off revised mark, and should go close again.

Two wins to his name on artificial surfaces early last year. Better than bare result when 6L third of 13 to Ilhabela Fact over C&D last month (trapped wide), and should be competitive with a better trip.

Not discredited on handicap bow at Leicester (1m2f) in June, and now 7lb lower, but has shown regressive form, and well held over 7f here last time having been gelded (slowly away). Risky now.

Fairly consistent in handicaps for Ed Dunlop until a poor run at Chelmsford in September. Has joined new yard for £11,000, and market will reveal expectations on return from a break.

Disappointed on handicap debut for Richard Hughes having shown ability in qualifying runs, and has had wind surgery since £12,000 move to new yard in the summer. Entitled to need the run after a lengthy break.

Has improved to fill runner-up spot in a pair of 1m2f events at Lingfield of late, shaping as if in need of a stiffer test when keeping on well last time. One to bear in mind trying this trip for the first time.

Has disappointed on both handicap starts, although did get back to form when not beaten far in a 1m4f novice at Wolverhampton last time. Must build on that to get competitive here.

Ran best race of last year when fourth over 1m2f at Newcastle in September with cheekpieces fitted, but did too much in front when tried in blinkers last time, and headgear missing now. Not ruled out, but others more convincing.

Front runner who has been running well on AW on recent starts, and again shaped well when ½L fourth of 13 to Taurean Dancer at Lingfield last time. Should continue in form.

Caught the eye despite pulling hard after a slow start at Wolverhampton on penultimate outing, but a little disappointing at Lingfield last time when having no such excuses. Must step up.

Forecast

Verdict

MAGIC MIRROR has opened up new avenues having proven her stamina on recent starts, and she can follow up her latest win over slightly further here. Unit Of Assessment was better than the result over C&D last time, and merits respect, as does the in-form Beauty Salon, who appears to be crying out for this trip.
