Was a lesser light during his time with Aidan O'Brien on the Flat and has been hard to win with since switching codes. Recent efforts have been encouraging though, which bodes well for a poor race like this. Not easy under top weight though.

Very poor completion rate and hard to suggest he achieved very much when he finished third behind a 1/6 favourite here in December. Others more convincing.

Was obviously fired up when the mare returned from a long break to finish second at Uttoxeter last November but her solitary start since left a lot to be desired. Blinkers for the first time suggest she needs a good bit of stoking along these days.

Has a course win to his name but the old boy has been struggling to find his form since returning from a long break. Well handicapped but still has a lot to prove in terms of enthusiasm at the moment.

Up in class after going close at Lingfield last time out. Yard is strongly represented here today and this fellow, who wears a visor for the first time in public, has gone well at this level in the past. Worth considering.

Hard to suggest he's unexposed under rules after a handful of modest efforts. The betting can determine where he stand with stablemate Little Boy Boru but the likelihood is that others will be much stringer fancies too.

5/1

0-10 so far but has snippets of form that suggest the mare is capable of ridding herself of the maiden tag at some point. Open to improvement now she tries this trip for the first time. Another for the shortlist.

Not disgraced last time out but has something to find with Cassivellaunus on that run and looks to be up against the wall from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Cassivellaunus (11/4), Three Star General (3/1), Little Boy Boru (9/2), Solstice Twilight (5/1), Browndodd (11/2), Mighty Vic (10/1), Robinesse (10/1), American Life (14/1), Tractor Fred (20/1), Cockney Seagull (33/1)

Verdict

CASSIVELLAUNUS represents a yard that has traditionally done well at this particular meeting over the last few years and he may be hard to resist if taking an extra prompt from the first-time visor. Solstice Twilight has potential to improve and merits consideration as an alternative, while Three Star General can also play a strong role if he copes with giving weight away all round. Cockney Seagull could also nbe good value to nick a place in the frame for those looking for a more adventurous play.
