Moderate placed efforts all three starts last season at 6f before making winning handicap bow at Lingfield (6f, AW) in March off 70. Beaten favourite since on turf at Wetherby in Class 4 contest; eased 2lb for this class-drop.

Improved showing on seasonal bow to deny hat-trick-seeking Pentland Lad over 6f on Chelmsford's AW track last month. Carries 6lb more back on turf, should be competitive.

Wolverhampton novice winner over this trip last year, yet to truly excel on turf and was unfancied 20-1 poke on seasonal bow at Lingfield (6f, AW) in March. Market will assist in what is expected now with run behind her.

Never out of the first two in five runs over 6f during latter half of 2018 (three wins, two on AW) before tame ending at Chelmsford in November off mark of 69. Needs to find a bit more on seasonal return eased just a pound.

Six-race maiden, showed plenty in three of her starts last year before a disappointing final effort. Too keen on Windsor reappearance (6f, good) 17 days ago to do herself justice. May do better now.

Lightly-raced gelding whose best effort last year came over close to a mile. Headgear left off for seasonal bow and seems best watched on evidence to date unless market vibes are positive.

Best of his juvenile efforts from four starts was a 3½L fourth of nine over this C&D in August when positively ridden. Gelded over the winter and first-time blinkers added now tackling a handicap from what could be a fair mark; noted.

Went off big prices in three novice starts last year, including near 20L defeat over 7f here in October. Seasonal/handicap bow and watching brief seems safest at this point.

Has run well on good/good to soft on turf as a novice last year, but others look more likely winners after last month's Leicester reappearance (7f, good to firm) when unable to mount a serious challenge. Can improve for that run, however.

Modest stuff in maiden/novice company last year before finishing eighth of nine on handicap bow at Leicester (7f, good to soft) in October. Off since and needs to have strengthened up significantly over the winter to play a part.

Filly was easily beaten in three novice starts last year over 6f/7f, going off 200-1 in final outing at Leicester in September. Watching brief on seasonal/handicap bow.

Hasn't shown much in four starts, including handicap bow at Lingfield (1m, AW) last month. Yard in good form now but would ideally like to witness some positives before getting involved, despite lowly rating.

Forecast

Warning Fire (3/1), Spirit Of May (9/2), Chitra (5/1), Cracking Speed (6/1), Under Curfew (15/2), Cavalry Park (10/1), Drumnadrochit (12/1), Miss Elsa (14/1), Atty's Edge (18/1), Penarth Pier (25/1), Song of The Isles (33/1), Boorowa (40/1), Clubora (40/1)

Verdict

Having been gelded over the winter it might be a good time to side with DRUMNADROCHIT, who ran his best race last year over C&D under forcing tactics. With blinkers applied today, Callum Shepherd's mount could have more to offer on his return as he starts in handicaps from a modest mark. Cracking Speed was too keen on reappearance at Windsor but can do better with that run behind while Chelmsford scorer Spirit Of May is also respected despite a 6lb increase. Warning Fire failed to justify favouritism at Wetherby but is now 2lb better off in a weaker contest.
