39-11OR: 67D

Won two from six in handicaps to date and also a good second here in only previous visit. Up 5lb for latest win at Wolverhampton but progressive nature means she will likely go close once again.

39-10OR: 66BFD

Handicap debutant won on lone previous tapeta start in a Wolverhampton novice event. Latest 2nd at Southwell been franked as sound form and leading claims here.

39-7OR: 63

Showed promise when sixth of 14 over 6f here on debut last September but has disappointed subsequently. Hood now added for second run after a break so there are some potential positives.

39-5OR: 61CD

Winner of a 5f C&D handicap in January and finished a decent fourth over the same C&D subsequently. Won a match race at Lingfield latest which at least confirmed she remains in good order so can go well again.

39-5OR: 61

Seven-race maiden finished fifth of 12 and last of six here in handicaps last Autumn. Drops in trip here after four-month absence. Others more compelling.

39-4OR: 60BF

1L second here after a layoff looked an excellent effort and lead her to be made favourite subsequently at Chelmsford latest. Flopped and finished last there so now a little risky but if bouncing back she can go close.

39-3OR: 59

Six-race maiden placed once last summer, in a weak event at Catterick. Struggled more recently however and form not good enough to take a chance first time out.

39-1OR: 57CD

C&D winner last December a shade disappointing here the last twice with fifths of five and six over same trip. Handicapper edging things back his way now and not totally ruled out.

Daughter of Equiano made little impression in three starts last spring with only one rival beaten in the three races. Had a long time off since and a wind-op so hoping she can show a glimmer now.

38-7OR: 45

Latest fifth of eight here in November was easily her best effort so far although even that looks short of the required. Hard to fancy.

Betting

Forecast

Hanati (9/4), Hanakotoba (5/2), Arishka (6/1), Kickham Street (15/2), Sister of The Sign (8/1), One One Seven (14/1), Equiano Perle (16/1), Pinarella (18/1), Tomahawk Ridge (25/1), Nettie Honeyball (80/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on handicap debutant HANATI who won on this surface at Wolverhampton before finishing second in an above average novice event at Southwell under a penalty. Progressive Hanakotoba rates one of the main dangers after another win latest while Sister of The Sign is another who remains on an upward curve.
