10-race maiden for Jamie Osborne and last three runs have seen his mark dramatically. Needs to improve significantly for the change in environment.

Awarded a race in the stewards room on penultimate start and hit with a 5lb rise in the weights. That seemed harsh, but she did well under the circumstances to finish as close as she did last time.

Put a couple of poor efforts behind him when runner-up last time despite not getting the strong gallop he favours. Back on turf here where his record is 0-5 but he should at least get a decent pace to aim at.

Six-time winner who is 0-11 around here and who is more competitive from marks below 60 nowadays. Tends to come from a long way back and will need more luck in running than proved the case last time.

8-27 on AW but 0-13 on turf. Has some good form on turf and today's mark looks exploitable having slipped to 15lb below that on AW. In good form and the biggest question is whether he stays this far.

Maiden after seven races and finished last of eight at Ffos Las in September on first run for current trainer after leaving Richard Hughes' stable. Plenty to prove returning from a break.

14-race maiden under both codes. Has claims on some of last summer's form but latest displays have been discouraging. Off since December and there are probably better options.

Reasonable to blame the ground last time, but she has now been by wide margins on her last six outings and looks easy to oppose.

Marginally better on handicap debut last time, but needs to take a bigger leap forward in a more competitive contest this afternoon.

11-race maiden has underachieved on first two starts for this yard and he has now undergone wind surgery. Likely to needs this after almost six months off.

Finished tailed off at Salisbury at the start of this month and very hard to draw any positive conclusions from that effort. Best form has come over further.

Has an outside chance on some of her form including her latest effort when making most of the running until lack of condition told. Stable have been amongst the winners and one to note if supported.

Has gone two years without a win and there has been nothing in recent outings to suggest his luck is about to change.

Yet to prove what his right trip is but this did look too far on his latest outing seven months ago.

Betting

Forecast

Fire Diamond (9/4), The Lords Walk (3/1), Enmeshing (8/1), Gates Pass (10/1), Edge (12/1), Banksy's Art (14/1), Couldn't Could She (14/1), Just Right (14/1), Less Of That (14/1), Guardiola (16/1), Dimmesdale (20/1), Innstigator (20/1), Cwynar (25/1), Mamnoon (33/1), Folies Bergeres (33/1), Unzipped (50/1)

Verdict

This looks a typically trappy contest for the grade with Just Right needing to be noted in the market and Edge rating a danger if getting a trouble free run from the back. It is expected Enmeshing will get the gallop he required, although he does appear better on AW tracks. FIRE DIAMOND is another AW specialist, but he has shown enough to suggest he performs on turf. The handicapper has left his turf mark alone whereas his AW mark has risen considerably during a recent good run of form. This will be his first try at this trip, but the handicapping anomaly makes that a risk worth taking. The Lord's Walk is hardly well-handicapped but is in better shape lately than many of these.
  1. Fire Diamond
  2. Just Right
  3. The Lords Walk
