Age: 3|  Weight: 9-9  |  J: Georgia Dobie |  T: Eve Johnson Houghton|  OR: 72
9/1

Seven-race maiden but posted a career-best when narrowly denied at Lingfield on return. Could have won with a clear run and likely has more to offer now.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-9  |  J: Ryan While |  T: W G M Turner|  OR: 72
20/1

Nine-race maiden despite a few near misses and should be fitter for two runs back. Dropped 4lb and in trip and should be competitive again.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-7  |  J: Oisin Murphy |  T: G G Margarson|  OR: 70
10/1

Shaped well and to a similar level in all three starts and now makes handicap and turf debut. Eye-catching jockey booking and could be involved off this opening mark.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-7  |  J: David Probert |  T: W Stone|  OR: 70
20/1

Novice winner for Sir Michael Stoute last year but has struggled in three starts for new yard. Drop in trip may help but others preferred.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: K T O'Neill |  T: R Hannon|  OR: 69
14/1

Five-race maiden showed plenty in three starts last year before a disappointing final effort. Down 2lb and remains with a strong yard so possible he could improve this year.

7
(2)
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Jessica Cooley |  T: N P Littmoden|  OR: 68
50/1

Dropped in trip and headgear added following two poor AW starts and plenty of improvement required. Others look more reliable.

8
(14)
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: F Sweeney |  T: M D I Usher|  OR: 67
22/1

Winner over 7f for Brendan Powell last year but has struggled to make an impression in two starts in better company since and plenty more required.

9
(13)
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-3  |  J: S W Kelly |  T: M McGrath|  OR: 66
66/1

Four-race maiden for Richard Hughes last year and failed to progress from debut. Best watched on season and stable debut.

10
(8)
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-2  |  J: A Kirby |  T: C G Cox|  OR: 65
10/1

Daughter of Bated Breath showed ability in all three starts last year. Stable starting to hit form and one to note in the betting on handicap and season debut.

11
(3)
Age: 3|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: George Bass |  T: M R Channon|  OR: 63
14/1

Twice a winner last year and remains just 2lb higher. Shaped well on reappearance but questionable whether this extra furlong suits. Rain would be a bonus.

12
(5)
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: Jason Watson |  T: C Fellowes|  OR: 62|  BF
13/8

An improved performer since two previous runs on turf and has been in flying form on the AW. An extra furlong is probably ideal but proving progressive for current stable and should be competitive.

13
(4)
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: Isobel Francis |  T: J R Boyle|  OR: 62
66/1

Six-race maiden proved disappointing for Brian Meehan last year and plenty more required following her season and stable debut. Others preferred.

14
(7)
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: P J Dobbs |  T: A W Carroll|  OR: 60
18/1

Six-race maiden but was making late headway over 5f here last time and worth a step back up in trip. Place possibilities but this is tougher.

15
(12)
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: Callum Shepherd |  T: M Blanshard|  OR: 60
33/1

Ran better than finishing position suggests on season and stable debut, showing pace and snatched up late on. A return to 5f may be preferable but likely has more to offer.

16
(11)
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-6  |  J: S De Sousa |  T: S C Williams|  OR: 55
4/1

Failed to make any sort of impression in three starts last year but gelded since and a notable jockey booking for handicap and season debut. Market support should be noted.

Forecast

Pentland Lad (13/8), Tone The Barone (4/1), Kwela (9/1), Painted Dream (10/1), Molly Blake (10/1), Valentino Sunrise (14/1), Cracking Speed (14/1), Aegean Mist (16/1), Urban Highway (18/1), John Betjeman (20/1), Gold At Midnight (20/1), Freedom And Wheat (22/1), Vino Rosso (33/1), Greybychoice (50/1), My Law (66/1), Ragstone Cowboy (66/1)

Verdict
KWELA was unlucky not to win on her return and a first win shouldn't be far away. Painted Dream is one to note on handicap debut while the progressive Pentland Lad is a big danger if transferring his AW form.
  1. Kwela
  2. Pentland Lad
