5/1

Successful over C&D when given a rare try on turf in April producing a career-best backing that up with another competent effort again over C&D. Only nudged up 1lb for that last effort; has to prove himself on this slower surface.

Took a Yarmouth handicap on her penultimate start (showed improved form) appreciating the return to 7f off a 5lb lower mark. Failed to follow up but still ran with credit when beaten over 1m last time (under a penalty); course not sure to suit.

Overall career profile would suggest that he's a better horse on the AW with nine of his 11 wins being gained on synthetics. Shaped better for the run back on turf last time but he looks weighted up to the hilt on this surface; others more persuasive

Won back-to-back 6f soft ground contests as a juvenile but has found things rather tougher going since then. Has run well enough in three of his four runs for this stable without threatening to win; has to prove himself on this track.

C&D winner as juvenile he's won an AW handicap off a 2lb higher mark indicating that he's capable off his current mark. Shaped better than the distance he was beaten (behind Swissal last time); didn't get the clearest of runs; not written off.

20/1

Veteran who is no stranger to winning over C&D and has slipped to 4lb below his last winning mark. Hasn't shown much so far this year (started at big prices twice); would need a form revival, not impossible given his stable and course form.

14/1

Three-time course winner with one victory coming at this trip; signalled he may well be on the way back with a second here recently over 6f. Not one to be rushing to support given his overall recent record; others offer more solid profiles.

7/1

On a long losing streak (no win since 2017); nearly managed to snap that run on his penultimate start over 1m on the AW at Lingfield (unlucky to bump into a fair one for the grade). Not in the same form next time around Wolverhampton; best watched.

7/2

Well beaten in two 7f handicaps this year at Salisbury and although the handicapper is starting to relent he's not really shown signs of being able to win again. Well weighted on his old form but prefer to keep a watching brief for now.

Forecast

Diva Star (11/4), Hedging (7/2), Swissal (4/1), De Little Engine (5/1), Helfire (7/1), Chetan (8/1), Canford's Joy (9/1), Wilson (11/1), Harry Beau (12/1), Soaring Spirits (14/1), Good Luck Charm (20/1)

Verdict

The C&D handicap last month that saw Swissal beat the DE LITTLE ENGINE with the unlucky in-running Wilson back in sixth is the one that is likely to hold the key to this race with Alex Dunn’s runner-up taken to reverse the form and come out on top this time around. Diva Star must also enter the argument although it should be noted that she ran poorly when tried here once before. Last year’s winner Harry Beau doesn’t come here in the same form but he is well weighted should he stage a revival and the rain stays away. Good Luck Charm who could go around here blindfold isn’t in much form of late but a market move would be interesting.
