Takes a drop in grade here, which could help her cause, but has only ever tried this trip once and that makes her a riskier proposition. Excellent jockey booking but others more persuasive.

Had just the six starts, so open to improvement, and her run at Wolverhampton over 7f last month was not a bad effort. Handicapper giving her a helping hand, and this is easier, so she has to be of interest despite a poor draw.

Winner over a mile at Kempton earlier in the year, and went close over the same C&D in April, but not the most consistent and the drop back to 7f might not be a positive. Poor draw as well, and others preferred.

Was in good form for much of last season and was very consistent, but in truth has yet to catch fire this time around and although his second on the turf here last month wasn't terrible, it needs improving upon.

Only seen twice this year and comes back here after another absence. Shown very little in either of those starts and from a poor draw, makes very little appeal.

Just one win in 26 starts an obvious worry but almost doubled his tally at Yarmouth last time and seems to have refound some form. Cheekpieces on there are retained and a repeat would see him involved in the finish.

Have to go back to 2016 to find the last time he even saw a racecourse and although he does know how to win a race, this trip may be on the short side for his return, and he can only be watched.

Winner over a mile here last winter and well enough handicapped on that, and his third here (on turf) in June tells you he's capable when in the mood, but a moderate effort at Bath last time needs forgiving, and he could be better drawn.

Not beaten far over C&D back in January but five efforts since then have left plenty to be desired. Usual headgear missing again and the fact he's only won one of his 55 starts is more than enough to make you look elsewhere.

Very well handicapped if you go back far enough but recent efforts are a tale of woe and it seems he's well off the pace at present. Can't really be entertained.

Was going nowhere but a change of trainer did him the world of good, finishing a fast-finishing second over 6f at Chepstow last time and this extra furlong will help. Has the plot draw as a well and ought to go close if repeating.

Just the two wins in 39 starts but turned in one of her better efforts when a close third at Ffos Las last time. Slight concern a fast 7f might not be her cup of tea, but that aside, at least comes here off the back of a good run, and is considered.

Early promise from last year seems a long way away now, well beaten last two starts and although the return to a sand surface may help, makes very little appeal from the car park draw.

5/1

One win in 31 starts but on the plus side, it came over this C&D and he is more consistent than most of these. Handicapper giving him every chance, has a decent draw to work from, and could easily hit the frame at worst.

Betting

Forecast

Catapult (5/1), Purple Paddy (5/1), Billiebrookedit (11/2), Three C's (13/2), Spenny's Lass (7/1), Vincenzo Coccotti (8/1), Essential (8/1), Hidden Dream (10/1), Cooperess (14/1), Haabis (25/1), Stoneyford Lane (33/1), My Bubba (33/1), Ad Valorem Queen (40/1), Haraz (50/1)

Verdict

With little in the way of early pace here, ESSENTIAL might be able to get the lead from a good draw and this looks a golden chance for him to add to his single victory to date. He almost pulled it off at Yarmouth last time out, only to be denied in the last few strides. This tracks shouldn't pose a problem for him, and he can come out on top. Catapult runs his race more often than not and as a previous C&D winner has a bit more going for him than a few. He can take home a prize, and third can be fought out between Hidden Dream and Cooperess.
