Yet to fire in five starts this year since leaving Richard Fahey. Well handicapped on last season's form and handles any ground but needs to raise his game.

Sole win came on quick ground but two career best efforts, when second at Doncaster and Newbury last year, came on soft. Out of his depth in the Spring Mile and disappointing at Brighton this year. Down in class but others preferred.

Has struggled to make an impression in two starts since returning from an absence and now dropped in class. All three wins have come at the minimum trip and this distance may not suit.

Won over this C&D on quick ground this time last year and proving inconsistent since. Dropping to a winnable mark if on the ball but soft conditions pose a big question.

Raised 3lb following quick ground win over this trip at Salisbury. Has handled soft ground in the past and proving a consistent performer. Open to more improvement now on turf and a likely contender.

Disappointing the last twice from five starts since joining this stable. Losing run dates back to May 2017 despite now being 22lb lower. Handles the conditions but others look more reliable at present.

Eight-race maiden handles soft conditions and was largely consistent last year. Jinked and unseated early on her reappearance and always out the back last time. Down 4lb but plenty to prove now.

12-time career winner, remains on a feasible mark but has tended to prefer faster conditions on turf. Won and a good third in first two starts back but well below that on softer ground over this C&D since. Others preferred.

Kept busy on the AW over the winter, proving consistent without winning. Has had wind surgery since last seen in February. Infrequent winner but gets to race off a much lower turf mark and likely to go well.

Hasn't won since taking this back in 2016 off 23lb higher. Better efforts the last twice off a lower AW mark but this tougher company. Place potential but more needed to gain a fourth career win.

Betting

Forecast

Marshal Dan (11/4), Espresso Freddo (4/1), Regulator (13/2), Bbob Alula (15/2), Angel Islington (10/1), Secret Glance (10/1), Smokey Lane (10/1), Robsdelight (11/1), Bombastic (12/1), Air Of York (14/1), Bahuta Acha (20/1)

Verdict

A previous winner of this race, Secret Glance was lightly raced last year and has conditions to suit following a couple of encouraging runs. He's hard to win with and the same can be said of Espresso Freddo, although he's proving a very reliable performer and should go close again. MARSHAL DAN is likewise consistent, lightly raced on turf and can build on a good win in this grade last time.
