Filly is 0-8 so far in her career but best effort came on penultimate start when upped to this trip and in first-time cheekpieces over C&D, finishing a sound enough second last month. Not replicated since at Wolverhampton.

Has improved since being gelded, winning weak Chelmsford affair (1m2f, AW; 10-1) last month on return and looked unlucky when just failing to overhaul Lady Wolf back there two starts back. Running well, first attempt this track.

Filly has looked modest in four starts to date, including on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (1m1½f, AW; 25-1) earlier this month. Too soon to write her off, but improvement is demanded.

Le Havre half-sister to two-year-old 7f winner Action Parfaite. Represents a powerful yard, but showed very little in three novice starts last year. Back for three-year-old campaign and first start in handicap, may be plenty more to come yet.

Casamento gelding is related to multiple winners, has shown some promise in three starts since switched to AW, racing only over a mile. Unexposed and upped in distance, there may be more to come.

Filly by Mukhadram, minor hints of ability in three novice starts last year over 7f. Upped significantly in trip for return/handicap bow and improved showing very possible.

Showed some minor promise in three runs for Jessica Harrington last year, though hasn't gone forward in two starts for new trainer at this track and Kempton so far (both over 1m; 66-1 in both instances). Now runs beyond a mile for the first time.

Struggled in maiden and novice company last year but shaped better when seventh in a 7f claiming event at Redcar (soft) in October and another mini positive when second in two-runner C&D novice event this month on return.

Achieved very little in four 2018 starts from 5f-7f, latest effort in a nursery here in August when beaten close to 16L over 7f. Hood added for return, others have better claims.

Has improved since getting a trip more in line with her pedigree. Narrow winner over this trip at Chelmsford penultimate start when the runner-up, re-opposing Chakrii, looked unlucky. Both disappointed back there next time, but in the mix still.

Filly appears to have some ability, though still quite raw after three starts. Switches to handicap for first time and going right up in trip, worth a betting check.

Efforts here over 1m4f and over a mile at Southwell last month suggest there will be races in him, at a modest level. Well held since at Kempton (1m, AW; 25-1), blinkers back on after running in cheekpieces lately.

Kyllachy colt missed the break on all three starts as a novice last year and hard to judge until breaking on terms. Returns for handicap debut for new yard and upped significantly in trip.

Oasis Dream filly, getting the hang of things after positive runs here over 1m/1m4f since turn of the year, latest on debut for this trainer. No reason she won't make her mark at this level soon enough.

Betting

Forecast

Ignatius (3/1), Chakrii (7/2), Ventura Island (7/1), Bonneville (8/1), Vin D'Honneur (17/2), Lady Wolf (17/2), Miss Green Dream (14/1), Monadante (14/1), Al Daayen (16/1), Inosanto (16/1), Parknacilla (25/1), Chutzpah (25/1), Piccolita (33/1), Abenaki (33/1)

Verdict

Tough to have a strong opinion about any of these, but both Lady Wolf and Chakrii have shown form lately, with the latter perhaps capable of reversing placings from their Chelmsford one-two last month. The likes of Piccolita, Miss Green Dream and the unexposed Ignatius are entitled to go well but handicap debutante VENTURA ISLAND is surely going to leave last year's novice form behind her and she wouldn't have to be a star to make a winning return for Richard Hannon, who boasts a 20% strike-rate here at Lingfield over the previous 12 months.
