5/1

More competitive on last couple of starts from falling mark, and did well to be third at Wolverhampton (6f) last time having pulled hard. Return to 5f will help, and considered.

Tends to hang left under pressure, but has been well placed to land a pair of 5f events on Fibresand of late. Not beaten far there last time, but arguably ought to have won, and previous headgear replaced by a visor now,

Has been running well at Wolverhampton recently, and finished well when a good third of 10 to Toni's A Star there on latest start. Mixed record here, but not dismissed in current mood.

Has fallen below his last winning mark, and hinted at a revival at Lingfield on his penultimate start when second to Pharoh Jake. Failed to build on that last time, however, and others more persuasive overall.

Not disgraced in much tougher company on last two starts in September and has now dropped 2lb below last winning mark. Served notice that her turn was imminent at Kempton last time, and looks sure to go close now.

Goes well here and ended lengthy losing run when scoring over C&D last time. Had the benefit of an excellent 7lb claimer then, and a 5lb rise in stronger company demands much more.

Won off similar mark over C&D in May, but he's been below form on his last couple of starts, and is eligible for weaker races than this.

Betting

Forecast

Time To Reason (3/1), Point Zero (3/1), Dandilion (7/2), Big Time Maybe (5/1), Red Stripes (7/1), Entertaining Ben (10/1), Hurricane Alert (25/1)

Verdict

DANDILION wasn't at her best last season, but caught the eye on her return after a breathing operation, and is handicapped to win if building as expected on that promise. Big Time Maybe will appreciate the drop back to 5f, and appeals as the main danger, with Point Zero holding strong form claims on recent Fibresand exploits, but still not one to trust implicitly.
