5/2

Seemed suited by a slow pace when winning over 2m0.5f here and didn't see out the trip subsequently at Kempton. Remains lightly-raced and may have more to offer at this shorter distance.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-10  |  J: J P Spencer |  T: Olly Murphy|  OR: 73
6/4

Showed ability in five starts for previous handler Martyn Meade and sold for 24,000gns in October. Won with a bit to spare over 1m4f at Lingfield on stable debut and likely to find more progress for this step up in distance.

14/1

Best suited by this distance and had been enjoying a good run of progressive form until he was virtually pulled up here in January and the vet subsequently found a cardiac arrhythmia. Remains a risky proposition after that.

Age: 7|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: L Morris |  T: Jonjo O'Neill|  OR: 67|  CD
8/1

Open to more improvement on the AW and has proven ideally suited by this C&D with a win and a latest second in two starts over it. Likely to be involved again.

Age: 10|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: S Donohoe |  T: P Morris|  OR: 65
100/1

Not won since taking the 2014 Northumberland Plate and a mere shadow of that high standard nowadays; made no impression in two starts for new yard and remains one to oppose.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: A Kirby |  T: J R Jenkins|  OR: 67
25/1

Yet to match promise of his debut but lightly-raced and better effort when third behind Endlessly on second start for new yard. Bit to find with his rival but should have more to offer up in trip.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-3  |  J: Callum Rodriguez |  T: K Dalgleish|  OR: 66
6/1

Seven-race maiden who, barring one fibresand run, is racing to a consistent level. Shaped over 1m4f at Newcastle as though he needs this trip and can be involved for stable in decent form.

Age: 6|  Weight: 9-3  |  J: Rossa Ryan |  T: Alexandra Dunn|  OR: 64|  C
10/1

Both wins have come over 1m4f and back on the same mark as the last of them. Should be fitter for latest return to action although hasn't been shaping as though a step back up in distance is required.

10

Age: 7|  Weight: 8-10  |  J: K T O'Neill |  T: J Farrelly|  OR: 57|  C
25/1

Returned to form with a victory over an extended 2m here last time out. Raised 2lb for that narrow victory and remains on a competitive mark with the drop in distance no issue. Rates a leading contender.

Forecast

Endlessly (6/4), Moon of Baroda (5/2), Home Before Dusk (6/1), Spiritual Man (8/1), Enmeshing (10/1), Strictly Art (12/1), Your Band (14/1), Lady Makfi (25/1), Mobham (25/1), Angel Gabrial (100/1)

Verdict
Lady Makfi ended a lengthy losing run with a back to form win here last time and has every chance of following up. She along with Spiritual Man are ideally suited by this surface but it may pay to side once again with ENDLESSY, who can improve again for the step up in distance and first-time headgear.
