Landed Wolverhampton claimer in March but down the field in two starts for new yard, including when distant ninth at Newmarket (1m, good) when last seen. Claims on best form but a bit to prove now from out of the handicap.

Looked to be back in form when respectable third in 6f Brighton handicap last month and would've been closer but was hampered at a crucial stage. Falling down the handicap to a likeable mark and must be considered.

Consistent in his last four starts and was most recently third of 13 in competitive handicap at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) when last seen. Not penalised for that effort and this looks to be an easier contest. Respected.

C&D winner last season but hasn't been in the same form this season. Well-beaten ninth in 7f Doncaster handicap on latest start and plenty to find from that run, although return to this track is a positive.

Has form figures of 12 at this venue and is in good form this season. Touched off by nose in 7f Brighton handicap last time and only given a 1lb rise for that effort and still below last winning mark. Leading player.

Got back on track with Chelmsford victory two starts ago but looked exposed when third at Kmpeton (6f, standard) eight days ago. Back up to a distance which looks to stretch him. Others preferred.

Busy on the AW this winter but has been running well below form of late, including when sixth in 6f Lingfield handicap recently. Now rated 16lb inferior to previous turf form and has to find more on this surface.

Forecast

Mujassam (9/4), Seprani (7/2), Big Storm Coming (4/1), Dream Catching (4/1), Chevallier (12/1), Tavener (12/1), Perfect Symphony (14/1)

Verdict

Hard to rule out a handful in this contest courtesy of their form at this venue and similar tracks, but preference is for SEPRANI who returned to form last time out an excels at undulating tracks. The handicapper has been lenient for that effort and she looks to be the one to beat under a jockey she performs well for. Mujassam has found a level of consistency in these type of contests and should be thereabouts once again, but has found a couple of rivals too good on his last two starts, while Dream Catching's fall down the handicap can't be ignored and showed a liking for unique tracks last time.
