Relatively lightly-raced. Won a similar race over this trip at Newcastle in December in a slowly-run contest. Struggled over 1m2f at the same track on penultimate start and no show over course and distance last time out. Capable but other preferred.

Very consistent in the grade and rarely runs a bad race over this course and distance. Won this race last year off a 4lb higher mark. Slightly unlucky last time out at Brighton and clearly has every chance.

Goes well over this trip and has run creditably on this track in the past. Won a seller at Lingfield last time out. Needs to improve on that effort to be a leading player but should go well under his experienced apprentice.

Won over this course and distance for John Gosden last season and generally runs well at this track. On the downside her last four efforts have been dismal and hard to recommend unless return to this course rejuvenates this filly.

Versatile AW performer. Would be one of the leading contenders based on his form over course and distance last season. Struggled on his debut for new connections last time out at Newbury. Will appreciate return to the AW but on long losing streak.

Arguably a career best performance last time out at Doncaster and dual course winner over 7f. Still a few pounds above his last winning mark and ran poorly for this apprentice at Salisbury two starts ago (always in rear). Possibilities.

Winner of four of his 16 starts. An impressive record in this grade. Last win came three starts ago at Lingfield over this trip and ran just as well when third in a Windsor handicap. Ran inexplicably badly at Beverley last time out. Respected.

Lightly raced; showed a bit of promise last season at Wolverhampton. Disappointing on reappearance run at Windsor (1m2f). Hard to assess over this trip and market may be best guide.

Has been running some steady races of late without really getting into contention. Drifting to a useful handicap mark (a winner off 10lb higher mark less than two years ago) and goes well on this track. Good place claims.

If in the same form he was last season for Mick Channon then this gelding would be an interesting contender. Ran well enough over course and distance three months ago but patchy form since.

Well beaten on all three career starts. Not much to recommend on handicap debut unless market speaks in his favour.

Betting

Forecast

Kingston Kurrajong (4/1), Tamerlane (9/2), Lacan (6/1), Gainsay (7/1), Come On Tier (7/1), Militry Decoration (10/1), Chikoko Trail (10/1), Nordic Flight (12/1), Merweb (12/1), Margie's Choice (16/1), Salsa Verde (16/1)

Verdict

Last year's winner KINGSTON KURRAJONG looks well weighted to strike again especially after showing his well being when a runner-up at Brighton on his latest start. Gainsay is capable of running a big race but needs to put a poor run recently at Beverley behind her. Militry Decoration has been consistent of late and deserves to win a race of this kind but may have to settle for minor honours.
