Mammoth task on to reverse the form with Fantastic Flyer after he suffered a heavy defeat behind that rival last time out. Struggling for form and still 2lb below last winning mark. Best watched.

Hard to knock in five starts since returning to the track in April. Hosed up over C&D last time when winning by five-length and is officially 4lb well in. Major possibilities of notching her fourth win of 2019.

All of his best form seems to be over 6f. Returns to 7f after going own by a neck over slightly shorter at Thirsk (6f; good to firm) when last seen. Won over 6f when last visiting this track.

Built upon encouraging Catterick (7f; good to firm) second by showing a game attitude to win by a short-head over C&D last month. Only raised 3lb for that victory, so he should remain competitive in a contest where many can be ruled out confidently.

Struggling for form at the moment and can only be watched after beating just the one rival in his last two starts. Remains 4lb above last winning mark.

Been off the track for 89 days after a pair of very quiet runs in Ireland. Last victory came over C&D, but that was in August last year and he has had 14 tries since then without any luck. Plenty to prove.

Caused 33-1 surprise when scoring over C&D two starts back. Could only manage midfield recently when returned to turf, but coming back to AW could see him spring back to form and he has place claims at least.

Had first run on turf for quite some time when disappointing at Nottingham (1m; soft). Won twice on the AW prior to that over 7f, but this is a different surface to what she is used to.

Followed up Lingfield (1m; standard) victory with comfortable success at Yarmouth (1m; good to firm) at the start of the week. Has to be considered when in such a rich vein of form and the hat-trick could be on the cards.

Made a promising start to life in handicaps at the start of the year, but has gone backwards recently and was pulled-up over hurdles when last seen. Hard to fancy.

Betting

Forecast

Fantastic Flyer (2/1), Mitigator (11/4), Sfumato (3/1), Descendant (8/1), Dandy Highwayman (8/1), Searanger (12/1), Primeiro Boy (14/1), Fly True (25/1), Brockey Rise (33/1), Smoki Smoka (40/1), Weloof (100/1), Pushkin Museum (150/1)

Verdict

She is in the form of her life at the moment and after scoring in effortless fashion over C&D when last seen, FANTASTIC FLYER can be successful in the follow-up bid and score for the fourth time this year. This is likely to be a bit harder than her recent victory, given she is coming up against a pair of similarly in-form rivals in the form of Sfumato and Mitigator. The former built upon an encouraging run on turf to score narrowly over C&D and a 3lb rise is fair, while the latter is chasing a hat-trick after winning in impressive style to follow up her Lingfield success to score at Yarmouth.
