10/1

C&D winner who failed to see out a 2f longer trip last time (first try beyond 1m) having taken a strong hold. Same apprentice takes the ride as he moves back to a more suitable trip; 5lb below his last winning mark, needs others to falter.

Three-time course winner (once over C&D) who appeared to show that he was returning to form over 7f here last time. Descends below his last winning turf mark and went well for this rider once before; one to pay attention to.

Formerly with James Fanshawe she remains a maiden (0-10) having shown little for this yard (may well have needed the run last time). There was little that appealed in her last run over C&D; best watched for now.

Has gone well here in the past and showed the benefit of a return to the seaside track when looking unlucky not to win last time (finished strongly after being hampered). Can struggle with consistency but off this mark over C&D is a big presence.

Failed to make any progress from his comeback run racing off the pace and failing to settle over a longer trip at Carlisle on testing ground. Not tried at this trip this year (all four runs last year at 1m); would need others to wane.

The only handicap newcomer in the field he's offered little so far in three AW starts (all in 2018 at up to 1m). Returns from a significant absence with more needed to make a winning start in this sphere even off a lowly opening mark.

Dual C&D winner who looked as though he was of interest again when running well over C&D last time (possibly made his move too soon). A more conservative ride would make him of interest especially having shown he handles this track.

Quirky character who despite some good course form isn't always the most reliable. Won earlier in the year on the AW (from last winning mark), back below that now but ran one of his lesser races last time; capable but comes with risks attached.

Consistency won the day when he scored at Chelmsford late last year over 1m (finished runner-up the two runs before); now back on the same mark. Headgear (blinkers) worn when he last won remain in place; lacking any zip this year so far.

10/3

C&D winner who has a good record here (141353) returning to form over C&D last time although unable to quicken in the closing stages. Remains fairly treated at the weights (has won off this mark); could well make an impression in this contest.

Still searching for his first success (0-9) running poorly last time over this trip at Yarmouth under today's rider. The heavy ground may have been to blame there but his overall record isn't convincing; others mount a more persuasive argument.

Back on turf/up in trip over C&D last time (posted his best effort for a while); had four of these Imbucato/Sharp Operator amongst them behind, nearly causing a real upset. 66-1 on that occasion he now has to prove that he can repeat the dose.

Twice a winner at this tricky course (once over this trip) he failed to build on his comeback run last time back over this C&D. Never really got involved and has plenty of ground to make up on three of his rivals; not a leading fancy.

A career record of 0-15 hardly sets the pulse racing even at this lowly level and although she ran respectably last time at Chelmsford that was in a lower grade than she faces here. Ran modestly on her on only previous start here; best watched.

Forecast

Imbucato (10/3), Hedging (9/2), Sharp Operator (7/1), N Over J (8/1), Brother In Arms (17/2), Duchess Of Avon (10/1), Duke Of North (10/1), Hidden Stash (12/1), Pinchpoint (12/1), Soaring Spirits (14/1), Thunderhooves (14/1), Coachella (16/1), With Approval (16/1), Seaquinn (20/1), Sir Magnum (20/1), Star Attraction (50/1)

Verdict

A race here three weeks ago may well hold the key to this contest with five of the contenders from that race meeting again. The two that did best from that race Brother In Arms and IMBUCATO (second and third) meet again with the latter of the Tony Carroll trained duo taken to come out on top this time. Hidden Stash also featured in that race along with Sharp Operator and Duchess Of Avon the former of that trio won this race last year off a 6lb higher mark so is well handicapped on that form. Soaring Spirits and Hedging are another pair that have to be considered with the latter having looked back to his best last time over 7f here although he’s hardly been the most consistent in his career.
