15/8

Won at Catterick last year and returned to form with a better effort when third of 12 at Beverley earlier this month. Dropped 1lb in the handicap and the step back up in trip should help.

Yet to win in seven starts and best effort yet came on AW over 5f. Can be slowly away, often a negative at this venue and has a bit to prove at present.

Showed much improved form when switched to turf on handicap debut last time out. Only nudged up 1lb for that from the handicapper and should be thereabouts with a reproduction of that effort.

Shaped okay on debut for Ger Lyons and has run okay in defeat in two starts for this yard, including handicap debut last time. More needed but yard in form and first-time cheekpieces may eke out improvement.

Well beaten on each of her four starts and no improvement on handicap debut at Wolverhampton on return. Drops back in trip and yard in form but hard to fancy on what she's shown to date.

Ran okay on debut here and while she didn't immediately build on that, it was a better effort when fifth of 19 at Thirsk last time. May come on for that and not ruled out.

Well beaten on each of his three starts, all on soft ground last year. Entitled to need the run on his seasonal return here for handicap debut.

Won twice on AW earlier this year and while he disappointed at Southwell last time, he paid the price for sitting close to a fast pace. No obvious reason why a return to turf will be a disadvantage and may bounce back.

Yet to win in five starts and his best effort came on a quicker surface than what he's got here. Well beaten at Beverley on his return and while he's been dropped 3lb by the handicapper, others make more appeal.

A maiden after six runs but her last couple of efforts have been more promising. Not guaranteed to be suited by the drop in trip here though; dropped 2lb by the assessor.

Beaten out of sight on each of her three starts to date. Drops in trip for her seasonal return here and hard to fancy on all known form; handicap debut.

Has a poor record, unplaced and well beaten on each of her nine starts. Needs first-time blinkers to make a huge difference and she's unlikely to play a part here.

Betting

Forecast

Timetodock (15/8), Seanjohnsilver (10/3), Fairy Fast (5/1), Zalmi Angel (10/1), Josiebond (12/1), Perfect Swiss (14/1), Madame Vitesse (14/1), Rock N Roll Queen (25/1), Deconso (28/1), Good Looker (33/1), Just A Rumour (50/1), Isabella Red (100/1)

Verdict

TIMETODOCK looks as if he will be Tim Easterby's first string here and the handicapped has dropped him 1lb for a promising enough effort at Beverley last time. The unexposed Fairy Fast is an obvious danger in first-time cheekpieces while Seanjohnsilver shouldn't be far away if he can reproduce his effort from last time out.
