3/1

Front-runner who has been largely consistent in four starts this season, most recently when fourth of 11 at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm). Remains 3lb above her last winning mark and others look better handicapped still.

5/1

Tough mare who landed a similar class 5 contest at Beverley (1m2f, good to soft) two starts ago before not being disgraced over an inadequate trip at the same venue. Dropped 1lb for that effort but will require a career best to win.

Smart prospect last year but hasn't been the same horse this season, including when finishing seventh of nine at Windsor (1m3f, good) when last seen on the flat. Recent spins over hurdles weren't inspiring and has a bit to prove now.

Multiple winner in Europe but has struggled since switching to this stable. Showed no form on the AW during the winter and is coming back from four-month break. Others more appealing.

Improved from seasonal debut when a good fourth in 1m2f Wetherby handicap last month when a stronger pace would've suited. Dropped 1lb for that effort and remains below her last winning mark so must be considered.

10/1

Placed three times this season before disappointing at Goodwood and Yarmouth last time out (1m6f) when soft ground didn't suit. Drops further down the handicap for that run and should have a say in proceedings.

Three-time winner in 2018 but soundly beaten in all of her races this season, including when a distant ninth in 1m2f Beverley handicap on latest start. Only dropped 2lb by the handicapper and more is needed.

Seven-race maiden who ran no sort of race when eighth of 11 at Redcar (1m, good to firm) on turf debut. Significant improvement needed to be competitive in this company.

AW winner at Wolverhampton during the winter but form has tailed off since. First-time cheekpieces didn't work when ninth on turf debut in 1m2f Nottingham handicap and remains 1lb higher than last winning mark. Opposable.

Ten-race maiden but showed significant improvement on latest start when third of 11 at Redcar (1m, good) seven days ago. Quick turnaround is a plus and looks ready to tackle 1m2f again. Solid claims.

Made an encouraging seasonal reappearance when a fair fifth of 12 at Lingfield (1m, standard) earlier this month and handicap mark keeps plummeting, but that was in a weaker contest and must prove to be as effective on turf.

78-2OR: 47CD
33/1

Winless in nearly two years and has been well beaten in lesser contests so far this season, including when fifth of 10 at Beverley (1m2f, good). Runs 4lb out of the handicap is likely to be up against it.

Betting

Forecast

Ideal Candy (3/1), First Dance (4/1), Kilbaha Lady (5/1), Classified (6/1), Kwanza (8/1), Seek The Moon (9/1), Velvet Vision (10/1), Bollin Joan (14/1), Last Enchantment (20/1), Malaspina (22/1), Destinys Rock (25/1), Inflexiball (33/1)

Verdict

FIRST DANCE improved significantly when running with credit last time out and with her dangerous handicap mark and the likelihood of a strong pace she is the one to beat. Velvet Vision seemingly didn't handle testing conditions last time out and will appreciate the forecasted ground conditions and is likely to be contesting for the places with Kilbaha Lady and Seek The Moon in what looks to be a windy contest.
