Turf maiden (0-10) who boasts a 33% strike-rate (3-9) on the AW; 3lb higher than when hanging on by a head (pair clear) over 2m at Lingfield in June; cheekpieces added.

Emphatic 3¼L winner of this race last year and arrives fresh from a seasonal reappearance win at Ayr (1m5f, good to firm) 44 days ago; 2lb higher; almost certain to be there or thereabouts come the finish.

Has shown gradual improvement on turf this season and is inching closer to winning; competes off the same mark as when a 25-1 third to True Destiny at York (2m, good to firm) just under a fortnight ago.

Recorded a second AW win when scoring on Tapeta at Newcastle (1m4½f) in January; out the back throughout on debut for Kevin Frost on good to soft ground at Ripon (1m4f) three weeks ago; needs an uplift.

Has fallen to an attractive mark; showed signs of a return to form at Hamilton Park (1m5f) latest - a race that he'd won in 2018 - when 6L third to the Ruth Carr-trained Be Perfect; stamina to be proven.

Formerly with Noel Williams; showed plenty of sparkle on debut for Archie Watson when making all in a hands and heels apprentices' handicap at Yarmouth (1m3½f, good to firm) last week; stays 2m; of definite interest off the same mark.

Advancing in years and more of an AW specialist (4-13) than anything but there's no denying that he's on an appealing mark; wasn't disgraced when a never nearer 4L fifth at Redcar (1m6f) latest; consult the market.

17-race turf maiden who is often slowly away from the stalls, as was the case when never in the hunt behind the progressive Lever Du Soleil at Musselburgh (2m) last week; others rate as a fair bit more appealing.

16-race maiden who competes from 3lb 'wrong'; placed at Ayr on his penultimate start (Buyer Beware two places behind) but has shown his 'strongest' form on the AW at Newcastle.

Betting

Forecast

Percy Prosecco (2/1), Perla Blanca (7/2), Colwood (11/2), Buyer Beware (13/2), Up Ten Down Two (7/1), Brotherly Company (12/1), St Andrews (14/1), Hugoigo (20/1), Duke Of Yorkshire (25/1), Saga Sprint (33/1), Belabour (40/1)

Verdict

PERLA BLANCA seeks to follow up her emphatic win in this race in 2018, and she holds every chance of doing so from a 7lb higher mark. She clearly has a strong rapport with the 5lb claimer Sophie Smith and should be commended for winning on her seasonal reappearance (off a seven-month break) at Ayr in May. Percy Prosecco is a potential danger for the Archie Watson/Becky Smith combination. He made all when winning on stable debut (bought for £15,000) at Yarmouth last week and escapes a penalty for that success. Of the remainder, the well handicapped Up Ten Down Two is probably worthy of market inspection.
