7/2

Losing run is starting to mount and although he posted a reasonable effort last time he's not really at the top of his game. 0-3 at the trip the feeling is that he needs to show a little more to be considered for this.

Never run over this C&D but did win over an extended 2m at Wolverhampton in December off a 2lb lower mark. Has run well twice since at the same venue still looking of a fair mark despite the slight rise; one for the shortlist.

May well have need the run last time after three months off although he now steps up 4f in trip (has been tried over this far in bumpers). Some of his form in slightly better handicaps would give him a chance here if he takes to this trip on the Flat

7/2

Multiple scorer in the point-to-point field who built on an encouraging Flat return to score at Doncaster under a 7lb claiming amateur last time over 1m4f. Still well weighted despite the penalty; has a good chance of following up at this trip.

Last two wins have come at 4f shorter on the AW although his latest run suggested that it now looks as though a more thorough test of stamina would suit. Ran creditably last time and competitive on form if he stays this trip.

Back from wind surgery and a break when running on the Fibresand at Southwell (unproven on that surface); finished well held. Now back up to 2m (last win came over this trip on turf); handles Tapeta; chance if coming on from his last run.

Stable debut; not seen since winning over hurdles (for Neil King) in October having had a quartet of runner-up slots prior to that on the AW (for Mick Appleby). Would have claims on previous AW form if he's ready to go after a fair absence.

Lightly-raced sort on the Flat (0-5) but has a rather unenviable 0-31 record over hurdles. Failed to show anything other than poor form on his most recent Flat starts; not one to be siding with here.

Pulled-up when last seen over hurdles returning from a break (attracted some support). One modest run to his name last year on the Flat when third at Beverly over a significantly shorter trip; not one who makes much appeal.

Eased into selling grade with first-time eyeshields on when finally winning his second race last time over 1m4f at Southwell (only had two rivals to beat). Made the most of a good opportunity but faces a much stiffer task here to follow up.

Still a maiden on the Flat (0-16) although he wasn't seen to best effect here over 1m4f last time (raced off the pace; hampered late on). Yet to win a race but not totally ridden off if he stays this trip as he clearly handles this surface.

Fared no better than before in first-time blinkers at Kempton over 1m4f last November and even a drop of 2lb doesn't make her anymore appealing. Steps up significantly in trip back from an absence; not one to enthuse over.

25/1

Modest maiden on the Flat who has shown some mild promise on occasions over staying trips on turf (is a winner over hurdles at 2m6f). Ran poorly when last seen (over hurdles) but hadn't run badly prior to that for all that she's fairly limited.

58-9OR: 45
14/1

Modest maiden with a career record that reads 0-15 with his two most recent outings showing very little. Some of his starts have suggested that he needs this trip but would need others to underperform to win at this level.

Betting

Forecast

Extreme Appeal (7/2), Masters Apprentice (7/2), Good Man (7/1), Ember's Glow (7/1), Betancourt (7/1), Urban Spirit (10/1), Misscarlett (11/1), Hugoigo (14/1), Nearly There (18/1), Dizoard (25/1), Canford Thompson (28/1), Rajapur (33/1), Excalibur (40/1), Rock N'stones (80/1)

Verdict

Trainer Kelly Morgan has her yard in good form having landed the Foxhunters at Aintree last week she has a good chance of landing this with EXTREME APPEAL who is well-in at the weights despite his penalty. Betancourt has been in good form on the other Tapeta surface at Wolverhampton and he’ll stay this trip well. Canford Thompson is one to note in the market off the back of an absence with Ember’s Glow another who could round out the places.
