20/1

Won twice last season but wasn't very consistent and, despite winning well at Salisbury on her penultimate start, the filly was easily brushed aside when last seen. Has a bit to prove from the same mark here.

Ran on strongly to score on seasonal debut at Newcastle earlier in the month - his first starts since being gelded - and has flourished over the winter. Carries 4lb more this time but feasible there's more to come. High on the shortlist.

Back on a winning mark but his form tailed off quickly after his win at Nottingham last August; can go well after a break but needs to prove he's trained on.

Reasonable effort when last seen but drops in trip and reverts to turf still seeking his first career win. Doesn't look particularly well handicapped; others more appealing.

Placed in a couple of novice stakes last season but has been off since September and has been gelded since his last run. Mixed form posted by his yard's runners of late but still worth a betting check. Place claims once more if fully wound up.

Has run well in each of her last three starts despite showing signs of temperament; didn't get a clear run latest but the winner had flown when the gap came. Cheekpieces can help here and possibly worth another chance; the betting can guide.

Potentially on a lenient mark after three starts as a juvenile, her latest effort was probably better than her finishing position suggests. Dangerous to underestimate on handicap debut. Another worth a betting check.

Formerly trained by Joseph O'Brien but hasn't made much of an impact and now with his third trainer since his introduction. Has room to move from his current lark but needs to prove this trip suits (first start over 6f since his racecourse bow).

Less than a length behind Bulger Bob at Newcastle latest but is 4lb better off at the weights and is arguably better back on turf; solid chance of reversing the form. Player.

Probably ruined her chances when she got upset in the stalls when last seen but had shown ability before then and has gone well here before; dropped 3lb since her last run, so not without a chance of at least making the frame.

38-11OR: 65

Raced keenly in two of her three previous starts and is yet to make much of an impact. Not harshly treated for her handicap debut but this looks a starting point and she will be better judged post-race; others make more appeal this time.

Surprise winner of a claimer in Ireland last September but quickly reverted to type afterwards. Debuts for a new yard and is probably best watched.

Made an ordinary start in a maiden last summer but sat out most of the campaign until returning with three quick runs at the back-end of the Flat season. Didn't make much impact and a bit to prove on first start since. (Yard also run Lady Calcaria.)

38-6OR: 60D

Won a nursery for Johnny Murtagh in Ireland last season but shown very little since. Dropped away tamely on debut for her current yard last month and makes limited appeal on that evidence even though she should be fitter for the run.

Betting

Forecast

Sundiata (7/2), Bugler Bob (9/2), Tie A Yellowribbon (6/1), Staycation (7/1), Fume (7/1), Mark's Choice (12/1), Parisean Artiste (14/1), Hard Solution (16/1), Arletta Star (18/1), Cotubanama (20/1), Dancing Mountain (28/1), Fox Hill (33/1), Jill Rose (33/1), Lady Calcaria (40/1)

Verdict

It can pay to take a chance on TIE A YELLOWRIBBON making the most of her 4lb pull at the weights with Bulger Bob and the locally-trained filly just edges the nomination in a tough one to call. Sundiata has her quirks but her concentration may be aided with fitting of cheekpieces this time; she also appeals as a candidate to be on the premises; Jill Rose and Parisean Artiste are a couple of others to bear in mind if the betting market indicates a positive approach.
