79-9OR: 79D

Yet to win on the AW but has form here, however questions to answer after form went the wrong way early last year and then finished completely tailed off on return over this C&D following wind surgery and a 227-day absence. Best watched at present.

99-9OR: 79BFCD

Last win came over this C&D off 6lb higher and is dangerously handicapped at present. Has been a bit below that level on last two visits here but both have been in slowly run races and he needs a strong pace to aim at. Stable in form and respected.

49-7OR: 82

33/1 when scoring from out of the handicap at Doncaster but below that at Haydock. Returned from a 167-day absence when not disgraced in a strong race and remains lightly-raced. May have more to offer at this trip if taking to this surface.

49-6OR: 75

3-6 on the AW and although below par on previous visit here, she is much improved since. Drew clear for a career-best over 1m6f last start and step up in grade and 6lb penalty shouldn't be an issue for a rapidly improving filly and yard in form.

49-5OR: 80

Was well in at the weights when easily winning a Wolverhampton seller last time and although he's from an in form yard and remains lightly-raced, he was tailed off on his previous visit here and this is much tougher.

69-3OR: 73D

Disappointing over hurdles the last twice and returns to the Flat making his course debut. Stable struggling for winners at present and previous two Flat wins have come in much lesser company.

59-0OR: 70D

Has C&D form but yet to win off this high. Hard ask last start but still returns after a break on a high mark in a tough race.

Betting

Forecast

Given Choice (5/4), Diocletian (7/2), Sunblazer (9/2), Dalileo (5/1), Final Choice (9/1), Champagne Champ (14/1), Navajo Star (25/1)

Verdict

GIVEN CHOICE has won three from her last five for a stable that are flying at present and and although this is competitive she's hard to get away from. Sunblazer is likewise representing a trainer in form and should get a more suitable pace to aim at while Diocletian remains one to keep on the right side of.
