7/4

A win and a second on two previous visits here. Has had another wind operation since last seen and it may eke out the bit of improvement that is needed to recapture the very best of his form from last year.

Two turf wins have been on firm and soft and showed again last time that 7f isn't her trip so back at optimum distance no surprise to see her bounce back to form.

4/1

Finished last season on a low but good comeback run following seven months off when third at Chepstow at this trip last month. Claims if able to build on that and has a course win from last year to his name.

7/2

Took advantage of the drop down to selling company when gamely making most over C&D last month on just his second start for this yard. More to do off 4lb more in this slightly better grade.

Lost all chance when blowing the start on latest and though she has won here in the past and hit the frame many times, she has ran here on 11 occasions.. Now debuts for new yard.

One time fair handicapper but a long time since he showed any worthwhile form on turf and not hard to look elsewhere. Whipped around and unseated rider leaving stalls last time.

Forecast

Cent Flying (7/4), Knockout Blow (7/2), Tawaafoq (4/1), Napping (4/1), Perfect Symphony (9/2), Mad Endeavour (5/1), Wild Flower (8/1), Ocean Temptress (16/1), Free Talkin (25/1), Noble Deed (33/1)

Verdict

TAWAAFOQ didn't make the track this season until last month but can now make up for lost time having ran with promise on his belated comeback. Back at her best trip Napping could prove the chief threat with recent selling handicap winner Knockout Blow looking best of the remainder.
