Sole win was on the turf last summer and although he has form on this surface and caught the eye last time out when finishing second of eight beaten a short head on return from a break. Enters calculations.

Has hit the frame on just one of her six starts over C&D. Not seen since finishing second of 11 in a Navan 5f handicap in October. Doesn't have the best of figures when returning from a break of over 100 days.

Didn't have the speed to go the pace on return to this venue over this trip when finishing 11th of 14 last month before a 5½L defeat over 7f earlier this month. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest here.

Filly has shown plenty of zip in a couple of starts over C&D recently and is open to plenty of improvement. Yard have a good record here in the last three years boasting a 31% win and place strike rate in the month of March.

Nine-race maiden, modest 51 rated handicapper for trainer Jamie Osborne. Not seen for 14 months and likely to need the run on return to action here on stable debut.

Showed plenty of zip in a couple of starts over C&D in January running well in defeat when beaten 1¾L and 2L. Well beaten over further since. Has switched yards since and worth a market check back at this trip.

All career wins gained on turf and hasn't shown enough this winter to suggest that is going to change here.

Has hit the frame in three of his five starts here over C&D and not disgraced from a negative draw here in January. Second of 14 beaten a neck shows the gelding to be still in good nick but once again has a adverse draw.

Represents respected connections, and this Epaulette colt comes from the family of leading sire Elusive Quality. Nothing to show in three starts here over 6f/7f and could be of interest receiving weight all round.

Betting

Forecast

Nigg Bay (3/1), Danz Gift (9/2), Ty Rock Brandy (5/1), Ar Saoirse (5/1), Cappadocia (8/1), Caesar's Comet (10/1), Al Batal (10/1), De Latour (11/1), Smart Stinger (12/1), Haqeeba (16/1), Captain Power (25/1), Gopsies Daughter (28/1), Jazz Affair (40/1)

Verdict

DANZ GIFT can land the opener following a number of solid and consistent runs over C&D since December. The eight-year-old is still running off a 9lb higher mark than his last win but can see off the attentions of the Adrian McGuinness-trained Ty Rock Brandy with the yard boasting a 31% win and place strike rate round here in the month of March in the last three years. Nigg Bay, De Latour and Cappadocia can battle for the minor honours.
