Back to form with a bang when bolting up in a classified stakes at Wolverhampton at the start of the month, and again had plenty in hand when following up there last time. G+Must be taken seriously in current mood.

Placed twice for John Gosden, but less impact for new yard until finishing third from reduced mark at Lingfield last time. Needs to show he can back that up, however.

Ended a long losing run on debut for this yard when winning here over 1m. Bounced back from a below par effort with a couple of in-frame efforts here, and no reason why he won't be on the premises again.

Left Mark Johnston after showing regressive form and it was much the same during a fruitless spell over hurdles for Evan Williams. Not disgraced starting out for current yard, but did get the run of things, and remains opposable.

Won at Newcastle in September ran better than bare form suggests there the last twice. Back on a competitive mark, and not taken lightly.

Made a belated breakthrough when landing a 1m1½f handicap at Wolverhampton on her 25th attempt, but had nothing to spare and not an obvious type to follow up.

Hasn't fired over hurdles, but won at Windsor in October, and ran with credit back on Polytrack at Lingfield last month. Bit more required to defy current mark.

In fine form for new yard over C&D, winning twice, and finishing an excellent second last time. Seems to have turned over a new leaf, and respected despite wide draw.

Has won here, but that is his only success from 33 Flat starts, and he ran a stinker at Wolverhampton last time.

Has a modest strike rate, but improved it when making all the running at Kempton on latest start, when equipped with a tongue tie for the first time. Claims if he is in the same mood now.

Ran well when runner-up over C&D on penultimate outing, and similar form when fourth here last time. Now tried in a visor, and could well get involved if the headgear works to any degree.

Hinted at a revival at Kempton on his penultimate start, but failed to deliver on that promise last time, and others are more convincing overall.

Not really firing on all cylinders at the moment, and while he's not been disgraced, he has no room to move any lower in the handicap, and others much more convincing.

Has shown no real ability in three starts to date, and make precious little appeal, for all this is more realistic on paper.

Betting

Forecast

Zorawar (5/2), Mullarkey (4/1), Squire (5/1), Hard Toffee (6/1), Don't Do It (7/1), Caledonia Duchess (12/1), Natch (16/1), Kilbaha Lady (16/1), Marshall Aid (16/1), Tobacco Road (22/1), Lulu Star (25/1), Barbara Villiers (33/1), Harbour Force (50/1), Dukes Meadow (50/1), Davina (100/1)

Verdict

Hard to get away from the resurgent ZORAWAR despite his wide draw, and he is taken to bring up a hat-trick of AW wins. Hard Toffee is another in the form of his life, and is respected most of the opposition, although a tongue tie and change of tactics worked for Mullarkey last time, and he can go well if repeating that effort.
