C&D winner who returned with a promising enough effort at Ripon last month when fourth of 15. Workable handicap mark here and not one to put a line through with plenty of pace drawn high.

Didn't quite deliver on what he had threatened to do as a juvenile and best form has come with some cut in the ground. Ran well on return but others look better handicapped.

Two-time C&D winner and 6f specialist. Finished runner-up in a competitive handicap here in October and back on that handicap mark now but perhaps vulnerable to progressive sorts and better on soft ground.

Hit and miss in four starts last season, winning at Sandown (5f) but failing to build on that twice subsequently. Only narrowly denied at Kempton on return but perhaps vulnerable from 1lb higher in a much deeper event.

Course winner and 6f specialist who was impressive when bolting up on debut for this yard at Ripon on return, despite a slow start. 7lb rise may not be insurmountable if he can build on that here.

Losing run goes back to an AW hat-trick at the back end of 2017. Sole success on turf came at this venue but needs to improve on recent showings to take any sort of hand here. Down the order on jockey bookings but yard in form at least.

Won twice last year in France but well down the field on UK debut at Ripon. Interesting that he's the first choice of the stable jockey and he won in first-time headgear last year (wears first-time cheekpieces this time). Each-way claims.

Won well here in a competitive race last year. Has shaped like a step up to this trip may suit in the past and ran okay on his return at Newbury, despite looking a little keen in the early stages; not one to rule out.

Losing run stretches back more than two years but he was only narrowly denied (a neck) at Doncaster last time. Consistent sort who tends to give his running so not one to rule out from a workable handicap mark.

Won each of his first three starts and caught out by the step up in trip on his first defeat. Ran perfectly creditably when runner-up at Ascot in October and conceivable there's more to come this season; interesting contender.

C&D winner, who disappointed a little last season, though best effort did come with a C&D second. Probably needed the run on return at Haydock last month and given a chance by the handicapper, dropped another 2lb.

Seems at his best over this trip but all his wins have come on AW and has only hit the frame once in seven turf attempts. Vulnerable from career high handicap mark here.

Rattled off a hat-trick at the start of 2018 season, only narrowly denied in a four-timer bid over C&D. Back below his last winning mark after some disappointments and very little to take from his reappearance when failing to beat a rival home.

Rattled off a hat-trick last season that culminated in a C&D success. Getting back below her last winning mark now and her effort last time out at Ripon was too bad to be true; not one to put a line through with De Sousa booked.

Has won six of his 29 turf outings but has returned in poor form this year, finishing well beaten on each of his three starts having had wind surgery in the interim. Handicapper trying to give him a chance and not ruled out if he can bounce back.

48-9OR: 92D

Only narrowly denied over C&D last season and while that was one of his better runs throughout the campaign, he returned in form with an AW success at Kempton. Hasn't backed that up since and seemingly has consistency issues.

Rattled off a four-timer last year and has gone up a remarkable 39lb in the ratings since the start of that winning run. Respectable run at Yarmouth last time but perhaps better at that 7f trip and looks vulnerable to improvers here.

All four of his wins have come over the minimum trip but has shaped like this trip will suit at times. Will need to have improved markedly from a poor effort at Doncaster last time out though.

Rattled off a hat-trick including a course success back in 2017. 3lb below that winning mark now and ran some fair races in defeat last season but all his best form is with cut in the ground.

Seemingly more effective on AW these days and only has one win to his name since 2015. Has shown little since joining this yard and while he's very well-handicapped on old form, he has questions to answer for now.

Won three times last season and while he's not the most consistent sort, he's back on his last winning handicap mark. Could step forward from his reappearance run last time and not ruled out here.

Forecast

Staxton (6/1), Aljady (8/1), Golden Apollo (8/1), Great Prospector (8/1), Holmeswood (10/1), Wentworth Falls (12/1), Reputation (14/1), Whinmoor (14/1), Desert Doctor (14/1), Vibrant Chords (14/1), Spoof (16/1), Sandra's Secret (16/1), Soldier's Minute (20/1), Savalas (20/1), Intisaab (20/1), Roundhay Park (20/1), Arecibo (20/1), Citron Major (33/1), Gulliver (33/1), Double Up (33/1), Flying Pursuit (50/1), Captain Colby (66/1)

Verdict

It might be worth taking a chance on SANDRA'S SECRET here. Her run last time out was too bad to be true and with Silvestre De Sousa taking over in the saddle, this course and distance winner could be the one to side with at a likely each-way price. Savalas is another back on a workable handicap mark while Spoof has shaped like six furlongs could suit in the past.
