11/4

Off the mark at the 14th attempt when beating Agent Gibbs over an extended 1m3f at this track nine days ago. Turned out under a penalty and the blinkers he wore for the first time on latest outing are retained.

In good form on the Kempton AW earlier this year, but latest effort at Goodwood was disappointing. Questions to answer on the back of that display.

Kempton winner in January and has run well to be second off much higher marks on her last three starts. Up again in the weights, but is likely to go well.

Chelmsford winner in November, but went off the boil on next two outings and has been given a break. In good form off higher mark when last seen on turf so no surprise to see her in the mix.

First run since January when tailed-off last of 12 at Wolverhampton last month. Scored off this mark over C&D in October so he is worth considering with similar underfoot conditions.

Nine-race maiden who ran her best race so far when 5L second of 12 at Lingfield last summer. Has been off since August and her claims are not obvious, but trainer is among the winners so she is not ruled out

Fourth in the recent course handicap won by Gendarme. Behind three of these rivals that day so has work to do in order to turn the tables.

Sixth to Gendarme last time, beaten 8L. Hard to see him making enough improvement to take this despite 1lb lower mark.

Beaten a long way on both AW starts in the autumn, his first two since leaving Heather Main's stable. Current yard is going well so she is worth a check in the betting returned to turf.

Nine-race maiden who ran respectably in mid-division on seasonal reappearance at Brighton at the start of this month. Down 2lb to career-low mark and is one who may pop up at some stage.

Betting

Forecast

Gendarme (11/4), Top Rock Talula (3/1), Agent Gibbs (6/1), Double Legend (13/2), Millie May (13/2), Affair (8/1), Cougar Kid (8/1), Famous Dynasty (10/1), Filament Of Gold (14/1), Buxlow Belle (14/1), Butterfield (14/1), Just Right (25/1), De Beau Tant (33/1), Eugenic (33/1)

Verdict

Gendarme beat several of these last time, but might struggle to confirm the form under his penalty. Filament Of Gold has possibilities and stable companions Just Right and De Beau Tant are worth a market check, but the vote goes to AFFAIR, who should be better for her break and is nicely treated on her turf form. Famous Dynasty and Top Rock Talula also have claims, while Buxlow Belle gives the impression these is a race in her.
  1. Affair
  2. Filament Of Gold
