4/1

Won at Ayr (1m5f) in September, and proved himself even better on Fibresand when landing a 1m3f handicap here last month. Up 4lb, but should relish this extra distance.

Well beaten over C&D in November, but back to form when 4L fourth of 13 to Handsome Bob over 1m3f last month. Remains vulnerable to younger legs, however.

10/1

Showed her penultimate effort at Pontefract to be all wrong when running well to be a close fourth at 66/1 last time (Newcastle, 1m4f). Chance if building on that, although unproven on Fibresand.

Stepped up on previous effort here when 1¼L second of 13 to Bond Angel over 1m here last time. Looked one to keep on side there, but stamina for this trip must be taken on trust.

Has won twice on turf at around 1m2f, but not in the best of form of late, and only 9¼L eighth of 13 to Handsome Bob here last time, leaving him with something to prove.

Respectable efforts on the whole on recent starts, and not disgraced in a first-time visor when third of 10 to Love Rat over C&D last time. Needs to raise his game somewhat if he's to better that placing.

49-6OR: 58CD

Won handicaps over C&D and at Wolverhampton in March. Ran well on his next two starts, but he hasn't shown enough spark in a couple of runs this winter to make him of serious interest here.

Well suited by this surface, and has gained two wins over C&D this winter. Excuses when below par in between, and she still appears to be progressing gradually, so merits maximum respect again.

Yest to win, but has ability, and again wasn't discredited when fifth of 10 to Anna Jammeela here last time, for all she didn't entirely convince with her stamina as she weakened late having made the running.

Ran one of his better races when fourth of 10 to Anna Jammeela here last time, but didn't really threaten, and has just a single win to his name since 2012.

Runner-up over C&D in March, but can look a hard ride, and was again below form when ninth behind Anna Jammeela here on her latest start.

Not disgraced in a couple of outings here last month, but is now 0-9 on AW after a below par effort at Newcastle, and others are much more compelling.

Betting

Forecast

Anna Jammeela (7/2), Handsome Bob (4/1), Seasearch (6/1), Angel's Acclaim (13/2), Di's Gift (7/1), Sincerely Resdev (7/1), Royal Cosmic (10/1), Lean On Pete (14/1), Croeso Cymraeg (20/1), Oceanus (22/1), Golden Guide (25/1), Chica Da Silva (33/1), Tilly Devine (40/1), Tingo In The Tale (50/1)

Verdict

CROESO CYMRAEG is very lightly raced and has shaped with promise on both handicap starts, including here. He's taken to find the improvement needed to beat recent course winner Handsome Bob. Sincerely Resdev went down narrowly over C&D last time, and is another to consider.
