Sound effort when finishing second here last month but well held on the AW since. 5lb above his last winning mark and needs a lot to go his way on these terms.

Unexposed and going the right way. On a fair mark for her turf/handicap debut and, with her stable in flying form, the Swiss Spirit filly is one to consider if the betting market is on her side.

Finished in mid division in a valuable sales race at Newmarket on his final start as a juvenile and might have more to offer now tasked with handicapping. Worth bearing in mind but needs to prove he gets a mile.

Decent efforts on the AW and showed a good attitude to win two of his last three starts on the artificial surfaces. More to do now he's back on turf.

Made a winning debut in the valuable Rouse Stakes (seller) at York last July but failed to boost his profile since. Respectable effort on seasonal debut last month but more now required.

Modest efforts in novice company so far and improvement needed now the filly is tried in a handicap for the first time. (Yard won this race in 2015 and is always to be respected at this course.)

Has ability but needs to take a big step forward. Another handicap debutante who also has a question to answer over the trip.

Consistent but struggling to get her head in front; possible the step up to a mile will bring a bit more but can spoil her chances by racing keenly.

Best effort to date when second on his handicap debut when last seen. Races from just 1lb higher but has switched yards since. The betting can help on this occasion.

Bettered his first couple of outings when he finished third at Nottingham last time out; was still well beaten that day, however, and the gelding now has a bit to prove.

Well beaten in all starts over sprint distances but likely a mile will suit the filly better; best effort to date posted over 5f at this course. Needs to improve but worth noting in the betting market with her yard in good form.

0-8 so far and already exposed. Yet to capture his early sparkle in handicaps and is struggling to find his level for his current stable.

Betting

Forecast

Reconnaissance (4/1), Mandocello (9/2), Chains Of Love (6/1), Dancing Jo (7/1), Pempie (8/1), Red Phoenix (9/1), Shamkha (10/1), Gabriela Laura (14/1), Parisean Artiste (16/1), Lee Roy (16/1), Clem A (20/1), Four Mile Bridge (20/1), Renardeau (20/1), Arctic Spirit (25/1)

Verdict

The unexposed GABRIELA LAURA is improving with each run and is progressive enough to cope with an initial handicap rating of just 70; she gets the nod as the one to be on in preference to Chains Of Love and Reconnaissance who both have respectable past form to their names but now need to raise their game. Parisean Artiste is bred to be effective over this trip and is another to consider if supported to make the frame.
