Off the mark on his third start but showed nothing when last of 11 at Haydock when last seen. Faster ground here may see him to better effect if ready to go on his return.

Yet to win in seven starts and couldn't get competitive in handicap company last year. May do better this campaign but has questions to answer for now.

A maiden after five starts, though did go close to getting off the mark on debut. Yard do well with their sprinters and likely to be one that progresses this campaign.

Posted a career best when bolting up at Newcastle last time out. 8lb rise looks fair and a return to turf may eke out more improvement; each-way player.

Signs the handicapper was catching up with her when last seen on AW and not always fluent from the stalls. Showed very little in two turf starts at the beginning of her career and seemingly up against it here.

A maiden after four starts and very disappointing on handicap debut last time out. Drops markedly in trip but has plenty to find on all known form.

Looks a little unlucky to still be a maiden after eight starts and produced a career best to finish runner-up at Windsor last time out when dropped back in trip. A reproduction of that run ought to see him go close.

Yet to win in five starts but produced his best effort yet on second handicap start at Newcastle last time out. The main concern would be his reluctance to break cleanly from the stalls and that could scupper his chance here over the minimum trip.

Gained a first win for this yard since his claiming success at Newcastle in October. Not as his best on two subsequent starts and while fast ground is in his favour, he needs to bounce back.

Yet to win in her four starts and hasn't given the impression a drop back to the minimum trip is what is required. Wears first-time visor.

Forecast

Cobweb Catcher (3/1), Amazing Alba (5/1), Murqaab (5/1), Giacomo Casanova (13/2), Arishka (7/1), One One Seven (8/1), Kickham Street (8/1), Hanakotoba (10/1), Legal Tender (16/1), Cedar (28/1), Teodula (33/1)

Verdict

COBWEB CATCHER may still be a maiden but he went close last time out and has race fitness on his side. He's taken to break his duck with many of his rivals making his reappearance. Giacomo Casanova is another who has the benefit of a recent run behind him and he can be forgiven his Fibresand effort last time. Arishka is the main danger to the selection after her wide margin win last time.
