12/1

Won twice at this trip around a year ago, including over C&D and has fallen to the mark he won off on that occasion. Shaped better than for a while when a luckless fifth at Kempton last time, and one to consider now eased slightly in class.

Patchy form under both codes of late, including when wearing a tongue tie on debut for new yard at Windsor last time. Entitled to improve for that, but all his wins have come over considerably further.

Has won twice at Wolverhampton this year, and proved as good as ever when short-head second to Gloweth in an amateur handicap at Goodwood last month. Similar form when a close third over 1¼m here last week, and likely to give another good account.

11/1

Hold-up performer who won over 7f here last year, and is running creditably at present. Set too much to do after a slow start at Kempton last time, and a player assuming he doesn't concede these rivals too much rope.

Has improved for current yard and belatedly off the mark when winning a 1m handicap at Windsor last time. Well placed as that race went, but she seems to be going the right way, so respected under a penalty.

Failed to stay 1¼m in maiden company on penultimate start, but proving consistent otherwise, and ran creditably when fourth of 9 to Prince of Harts in a 1m½f handicap at Nottingham last time. Dropped 2lb for that, and has fair place claims.

Now 1lb lower than when winning on Polytrack at Lingfield in March, but not so effective on turf, and makes little appeal on what she's been achieving of late on this surface.

Failed to go on from a promising start in nurseries for Sir Michael Stoute, and well held on seasonal return for current yard having had wind surgery. Unexposed, but needs to prove he's trained on.

Sole win came over 1½m at Brighton in 2017. Ran well over 1¼m there on penultimate start, but below form last time, and drop to 1m not an obvious catalyst for improvement.

Got off to a winning start at Wolverhampton earlier in the month for current yard in a similar contest, and runner-up under a penalty at Nottingham on Saturday (clear of the third). Has a similar task here, and ought to be on the premises again.

Has looked a handful on each start when highly tried. Initial mark reflects the company he has been keeping, having been beaten by wide margins, and there appears to be something to work with when he settles.

Just a moderate maiden at best, and woefully out of sorts, so makes no appeal from a long way out of the weights. Cheekpieces worn for first time now.

Betting

Forecast

Luna Magic (7/4), Itizzit (7/2), Anif (6/1), Crimewave (7/1), Ragstone View (11/1), Letsbe Avenue (12/1), Noble Account (20/1), Light Of Air (20/1), William Hunter (28/1), First Link (66/1), Extreme Force (66/1), Thunderhooves (150/1)

Verdict

LUNA MAGIC caught something of a tartar when turned out under a penalty at Nottingham on Saturday, but she beat the others easily and is capable of defying her burden on that evidence. Anif has produced a couple of solid efforts recently, including here, and looks the main threat, although both Letsbeavenue and Itizzit have top riders booked, and have something to recommend them on form.
