9/2

Remains 1lb higher than last winning mark which came over this C&D. Can be slowly away but finished close up off this mark here last start and now dropped in grade. Rates a leading contender.

7/1

All best form and three career wins have come at this track and comes off the back of two solid placed efforts over 7f here since wind surgery. Drop in trip and wide draw are negatives though.

One win from four for Richard Hannon but below that level in three starts for new yard. Eased in grade and first run here but more required.

Yet to win at this track but does handle the surface fine. Just 1lb higher than November's Lingfield win and still well handicapped on old form. Racing well and should be competitive again.

Seemed to find the drop to the minimum trip against him last start and struggled in stronger company two runs back. A former C&D winner off this mark and every chance of being involved.

Makes course debut after finishing tailed off on first run for new yard. Best watched again from poor draw.

Ran a big third over this C&D a year ago but will need to prove that wasn't a one off. Ran poorly in a hood (removed) on last month's return and wide draw to overcome. Others preferred.

On a long losing run and yet to place in four AW starts including twice here. Poor run here on last start for Kevin Ryan and although good jockey booking on stable debut, others look more convincing.

Won both starts as a juvenile but has proved regressive since and yet to convince he has trained on. Needs to improve on course debut.

Eight-race maiden but ran well at Newcastle over an inadequate 5f and best form has come here. Stable could be in better form but holds place possibilities.

10/3

Has proved very progressive in winning his last three at this track (last two over this distance) including on latest stable debut. Up 5lb and grade but won with plenty in hand last time and form is working out very well. Likely to go close again.

Betting

Forecast

Soar Above (10/3), Madrinho (9/2), Miracle Works (11/2), Treacherous (7/1), Rock of Estonia (9/1), Mont Kiara (10/1), Anonymous John (10/1), Little Palaver (11/1), Global Melody (14/1), Princely (20/1), Full Intention (20/1), Hello Girl (20/1)

Verdict

With winners coming out of his last win SOAR ABOVE may well prove to still be ahead of the handicapper and is taken to complete a four-timer. There's plenty of opposition though with Madrinho a danger down in class while Little Palaver goes well here and has had excuses the last twice.
