Six-race maiden has encountered problems having missed 15 months before reappearing in November. Showed up well over 7f on Lingfield's AW in December. Can surely win a race somewhere along the way.

Dual Kempton AW winner over 7f (2-7 in that sphere). Off since February and makes first start on turf, entitled to get competitive if handling surface.

Comes here race-fit after pair of solid placed efforts on AW at Lingfield and Wolverhampton, both over 7f, and no reason to suggest former Newbury winner won't be in the mix again here.

Sole win came over 7f here last year, all the better for reappearance effort when third of 17 over 6f (good to firm) here a fortnight ago. Considered for this prize back up in trip.

Experienced campaigner, raced prominently over C&D (good to firm) 18 days ago when making winning stable debut on reappearance. Game at the finish, more on his plate from this mark but can go well again.

Winner on soft ground over 7f at Brighton last August but generally disappointing since then. Should be sharper for recent reappearance at Lingfield (7f, good; 25-1).

Winner over 7f at Wolverhampton on debut for this yard in December. Some decent efforts in defeat since and too keen when trying to make all in first time blinkers (absent here) at Brighton (7f, good-to-firm) latest.

40,000 gns son of Paco Boy. Related to winners at 5f-7f and the dam won two races. Has shown little in three starts on the AW and now must improve significantly on turf/handicap bow to get competitive.

Won first time out in two of his three seasons to date but never threatened to achieve that over C&D last month despite lowly rating compared to best form. Hard to enthuse about currently.

Seemingly regressed since finishing third over 7f at Kempton in October last year, though took a step back in the right direction with close third of nine at Brighton (7f, good to firm; 11-2) latest. Chance in this field.

Betting

Forecast

Fieldsman (9/4), Marshal Dan (7/2), Tamerlane (6/1), Crystal Casque (7/1), Hedging (7/1), N Over J (8/1), Creek Harbour (16/1), Magical Ride (16/1), Angel Islington (22/1), Ainne (25/1), Good Luck Charm (66/1)

Verdict

Tough fare to finish off the card but MARSHAL DAN might be the one to send punters away happy. He's twice run well on the AW recently and scored at Newbury last summer on turf. The trip and ground on offer here will suit and he seems as likely a winner as any. N Over J shaped better at Brighton recently and can be in the mix with a repeat while it won't be a shock to find Fieldsman, Crystal Casque and Tamerlane challenging when it matters most.
