Previous form was left well behind when he scored at Wolverhampton last time springing a mild surprise; well positioned all the way. Up 1f in trip and 5lb in the weights for that victory it remains to be seen if he can follow up.

Far from ideally placed when taking third last time at Lingfield (1m) doing best of those to come from off the pace (failed to land a blow; travelled well). Came home well under just hands-and-heels riding; likely to be more favoured by the track her

Just the three runs to her name so far; this will be her first foray into handicaps. She looked ill at ease over 6f here last time (bred to be suited by 1m plus). Her other two runs have been at 7f here; will enjoy a crack at 1m but needs to improve.

Showed improved form last time to score over 7f here keeping on well to score. Only tried once over C&D (most of his form her is over 7f) and up 6lb so needs to find more but should remain competitive.

Made all AW debut here (so far only run on the AW) when finishing well held on his qualifying run over 6f. The switch to handicaps doesn't appear to have brought him on as yet and others offer a far more solid profile.

Form looked fairly modest before he was switched to handicaps with his debut coming over 7f here in a first-time tongue-tie. Shaped better than the bare result when seventh to Blazing Dreams; finished with running left after being hampered.

Given three outings last year all at 6f (two on the AW, the final one here); finished down the field on each occasion. Now up 2f in trip going into handicaps for the first time; more expected but by the same token more is needed.

C&D winner; one of the more experienced types in this having done better since going handicapping, 1m appearing to suit well for his win. Ran creditably over 7f here last time (off 4lb higher); beaten by improver, will be better back at 1m.

Well below form last time over 7f here coming back from a break that being his fourth handicap (hardly looks to be progressing in this sphere). Down to a mark of 51 in future races he looks rather limited and others appeal far more.

Course winner from a yard with a 3-7 record here; his course win coming on handicap debut over 7f in good style. Failed to follow up under his penalty but still caught the eye finishing second over 7f; potential to progress at this 1m trip.

Ran with credit over C&D last time (fifth to Macs Blessings)making his Tapeta debut with first-time cheekpieces on. Still to win a race but gradually coming down the weights (now off a career low); still work to do but may pick up a handicap in time.

Handicap newcomer who has had just the three runs so far; far too free over this C&D last time (refused to settle). Hard to build a case for him on what he's shown so far and others offer more.

Both her best efforts have come over this C&D so a return here may be just what she needs after splitting Macs Blessings and Blazing Dreams he last time she ran here. Has to put behind her poor Fibresand run last time; can't be written off here.

Has shown little fluency or form in three runs and now returns from a significant absence to make her handicap debut upped in trip. Has been tried in a hood; little to recommend her here though.

Forecast

What Will Be (7/4), Simba Samba (4/1), Robeam (7/1), Blazing Dreams (8/1), Macs Blessings (10/1), Havana Ooh Na Na (11/1), Lexikon (12/1), Zoom Out (14/1), Hector's Here (18/1), Jagerbond (40/1), Slaithwaite (50/1), Amourie (66/1), Somewhat Sisyphean (100/1), Juals Spirit (100/1)

Verdict

Quite a few that stand out here in what looks to be a tricky puzzle for punters to unravel What Will Be is likely to prove popular on the back on his eye-catching run last time although the scenario will be rather different here. For that reason course winner SIMBA SAMBA is preferred to enhance the already sound record of trainer Phil McBride at this track, his charge having shown plenty of promise and progress in his last couple of starts. Mac’s Blessings and Blazing Dreams are two others that give depth to this as a contest with Lexikon also respected having run her two best races here.
