Has run to a consistent level on most of her starts, though not at her best at Chantilly last time out. A return to the form that saw her competitive on AW this winter should see her in the shake up. Wears first-time tongue-tie and cheekpieces.

Yet to win in 10 starts but produced a much better effort when only narrowly denied at Chepstow last time. Left on the same handicap mark and may be able to build on that here.

Yet to win in seven starts and she was badly outpaced on return at Thirsk earlier this month. May do better on second start since wind surgery here and showed some ability towards the end of last season so not entirely ruled out.

Didn't show much as a juvenile but shaped okay on return at Redcar and built on that with a good second at Thirsk last time out. Could go well if the blinkers have the same effect here in what is probably a less competitive heat.

Belatedly got her head in front at Redcar two starts back but wasn't as effective from her revised mark at Pontefract last time. May want faster conditions to what she gets here though and this draw isn't always ideal.

Still a maiden after seven starts but it was a better effort at Yarmouth earlier in the week on debut for this yard. Needs to build on that in first-time blinkers here if taking up this engagement on a quick turnaround.

Back on his last winning handicap mark and has shaped like a step back up to 6f could suit in some of his more recent races. Can be forgiven the effort at Beverley last time when drawn poorly and not one to rule out here.

Yet to win in eight starts and shown nothing in two outings for this yard. This draw can sometimes be a positive at this track and the booking of Luke Morris is positive but others hold stronger claims.

Well beaten in four starts including handicap debut at Redcar last time out. May need a step up in trip and needs the first-time cheekpieces to have a dramatic effect here.

Without a win in seven starts and her best effort came over C&D in selling company back in July. Has struggled badly on her last two outings and others make more appeal here.

Yet to win in seven starts but did run well in a couple of races towards the back end of last season on turf, both with some cut in the ground. May have needed the run at Redcar on return and could do better here.

Tailed off on all six of his starts and showed nothing at Thirsk when 18th of 19 last month on return. Has it all to prove here.

Betting

Forecast

Ascot Dreamer (9/2), One One Seven (5/1), Ey Up Its Mick (6/1), Tizwotitiz (13/2), Kermouster (7/1), Highjacked (9/1), Budaiya Fort (10/1), Caramel Curves (11/1), Amor Kethley (14/1), Separable (20/1), Early Edition (33/1), Justice Shallow (100/1)

Verdict

TIZWOTITIZ has been leniently left on the same handicap mark by the assessor after a promising effort at Chepstow last time and if he can take another step forward, he could run well with a useful apprentice claiming 7lb. Highjacked has run well in similar conditions before and may have needed the comeback run last time. However, Ey Up Its Mick could be the main danger if the headgear has the same effect as it did first time.
