5/1

Won over C&D last month, beating Slipalongtrevaskis, and ran with credit at Southwell subsequently. Wide draw a slight concern, but leading claims on form, and respected.

Hinted at ability in three starts for Andi Brown, but opening mark demands improvement, and only of interest if attracting support on debut for new yard here.

Best effort when beating Wotadoll over C&D in October, and ran respectably next time. Hampered and unseated early last time, and east to put a line through that run.

Ran quite well when fourth to Mr Potter over C&D in October for this rider, but put in a poor effort in an amateur riders' race here more recently, and needs to put that behind him.

Yet to win, and didn't show enough in three runs last year to make him of interest in the short term.

Getting into the veteran stage, and soundly beaten on all five starts last year, so has plenty to prove right now.

Not fired since runner-up at Brighton in May, but on a fair mark if he does bounce back, and yard's runners never taken lightly.

Not beaten far when fourth at Leicester in August off current mark, which was the highpoint of a low-key 2018. Did keep on over an inadequate 5f at Wolverhampton last time, but must show he can build on that.

Just one win since 2015, which is a concern, but did produce one of his better efforts when 1¼L third of 13 to Papa Delta at Kempton last time, and has form claims if he can build a little on that.

Like his stable, he is struggling for form at the moment, and likely to find a few of these too quick on recent evidence.

Easily his best effort when beaten a short head by Mr Potter over C&D in October, but his form since has been patchy, and there is a chance he was flattered by the run of the race on that occasion.

149-6OR: 45CD

Veteran who ran one of his better races when 3¾L third of 11 to Magicinthemaking over C&D last time, but he is essentially regressive, and unlikely to build on that effort given the pattern of his recent form.

Made frame behind Eye Of The Water and subsequent Redcar winner Chitra in first-time cheekpieces at Ffos Las in September. Below form since, but possible that blinkers could have a positive effect, and still low mileage.

Forecast

Magicinthemaking (4/1), Sybil Grand (9/2), Poppy May (5/1), Athassel (5/1), Krazy Paving (6/1), Le Manege Enchante (10/1), Charlie Alpha (10/1), Black Truffle (11/1), Sovereign State (12/1), Plucky Dip (12/1), Premium Pink (12/1), Tasaaboq (25/1), Secret Asset (25/1), Ballesteros (50/1)

Verdict

POPPY MAY and Magicinthemaking have recent C&D wins to their names, and look the pair to focus on, with the first-named having the slightly more solid profile all in all. Krazy Paving isn't so easy to fancy on recent runs, but comes from a yard which is still churning out winners, and can't be taken lightly.
