14/1

Only win came on debut two years ago at Ayr for Michael Dods. Form deteriorated last term at up to 1m4f and has shown little in two starts for current yard. Drops back to a mile but has plenty to do on recent evidence.

Has shown little form to speak of in seven career starts, the last four for current yard. Finished third of four in Southwell mile novice event in May, and may not have stayed last time on first attempt at 10f.

First-time cheekpieces applied for this ex-Irish 21-race maiden who has been second in three of his four starts this term for current yard over up to 1m6f. Uncertain that drop in trip will suit.

Second in Yarmouth mile handicap last season when trained by Mick Channon. Form has deteriorated over four starts for current yard and returns now following wind surgery. Doesn't jump off the page as an obvious winner.

Won twice last term on AW at Newcastle in handicap company and not disgraced at Beverley recently where kept on one pace over extended 7f to finish fifth from 6lb out of the handicap. Runs off correct mark here and may not be far away.

Landed Newcastle AW 7f nursery two years ago off 62 for Mark Johnston but no joy since. Creditable efforts last three starts over 1m2f and suspicion this mile might be more suitable so is not without hope.

Hasn't run on turf for nearly a year but has been busy on the AW tracks and won Chelmsford 1m2f h'cap off 51 in September. Strongly run mile may fit the bill so worth checking for any moves in the betting markets.

Won Brighton 6f novice auction stakes for Mark Johnston in 2017 but has shown nothing since joining current yard five starts ago. Falling mark unlikely to help the cause on what we've seen of late.

Second in 7f selling handicap here last summer but remains a maiden under both codes after 23 starts in total. Has done little of late to suggest he'll break his duck here. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

Landed handicap off 48 on the straight mile at Redcar in May and ran well when third off 6lb higher mark at Beverley after that. Not so good last two efforts but step back up to this trip should help the cause.

Has been tried over a wide varierty of trips this term but seemed to be suited by the mile when fifth at Wetherby last time. 3lb lower now, good apprentice claims 3lb more, and yard firing home the winners. Solid chance.

One of three stable contenders for this race. Won Catterick 7f seller last term and best form is at around that trip. Appeared not to stay on only previous attempt at a mile so stamina has to be a concern.

Only one place in 11 starts so far at trips between 6-10f. Not disgrace don each of his last three starts but hard to know what his optimum distance is and may struggle to land a blow yet again.

Stable companion of Arriba De Toda. Went close in 7f Musselburgh nursery last season but hasn't threatened to win anything so far this term, although not disgraced on occasions, Drop in class may help and isn't out of it by any means.

Minor hints of a lttle ability in five unplaced racecourse appearances so far. Drops in grade and is less exposed than most but much more needed to score.

Hasn't shown very much at all in nine unplaced career starts and there has to be a doubt about here seeing out the mile here after fading over 7f at Kempton last time.

Betting

Forecast

Silk Mill Blue (6/1), Spiritual Boy (6/1), Loose Chippings (15/2), Sulafaat (8/1), Blyton Lass (10/1), Lexikon (10/1), Tommycole (11/1), Arriba De Toda (12/1), Biscuit Queen (12/1), French Flyer (14/1), Royal Liberty (18/1), Smashing Lass (20/1), Seafaring Girl (22/1), Lethal Guest (25/1), Secret Magic (40/1), Duba Plains (50/1)

Verdict

Most of these find winning a very tough task, but SPIRITUAL BOY appears to be getting the hang of things and did much better last time at Wetherby. He is taken to break his duck here. Silk Mill Blue is a danger back on his correct mark having run creditably when wrong at the weights last time, and Tommycole, Sulafaat and Blyton Lass have hinted they may be able to figure at this level if on a going day. Biscuit Queen may prove best of the rest.
