Still looking for his opening success after eight starts. Was well beaten on his return to action at Lingfield (1m4f) on the AW last time where he was ninth of 13 on his handicap debut. Is down 4lb since his last run but is hard to make a case for.

Has a good strike-rate on the AW with three wins from eight starts, including a C&D distance success. Came close to victory last time when third of 13 at Chelmsford on the AW, beaten by just ¾L. Down in trip off a 1lb lower mark. Has a good chance.

Was busy on the AW over the winter where he failed to add to his tally. Making his first appearance here since finishing eighth of 10 at Lingfield (1m4f) on the AW. Down 2lb in the weights but needs to improve.

On a long losing run which stretches back to July 2017 when he was successful at Chepstow (1m2f). Had just one horse behind him last time at Chepstow over 1m4f in a 13 runner contest. Recent form a real concern.

A C&D winner here back in March 2018 but his form this season has been poor. He was last of five on his latest outing at Lingfield (1m3½f). Has been eased 2lb but he is hard to fancy on what he has shown recently.

Remains a maiden after eight races, however, he went really close to his opening success last time at Windsor (1m3½f) when second of 13 as the evens favourite. Has gone up 3lb but another big display can be expected here. Leading contender.

Has not won since July 2015. This will be his fist run since finishing ninth of 12 over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m4f) last November. Has had a wind-op since then. Is off a career low mark here but he is best watched on his return.

Has hit the frame on four of her five starts this season as she still looks for her opening success. She was third of 12 on her latest outing on the AW at Wolverhampton (1m4f) when going off as the 9/4 favourite. Should be in the mix again here.

Career figures of 0-25 but his last two runs have been positive. Was fourth of 13 last time at Lingfield on the AW over 2m. Taking a step down in trip here but he has gone close at this distance before. Tongue-tie on for first time. Each-way claims.

Is in great form at the moment with two wins coming from his last three starts, including latest at Chepstow (1m4f). Is 0-5 on the AW but likely to perform better at this trip on this surface. One to consider.

Lightly-raced filly who is a maiden after four starts. Her form has not improved since joining handicap company. She was last of eight on her latest outing at Bath (1m2f) when going off at 66/1. Hard to make a case for.

Still a maiden after six runs but he has hit the frame on his last two starts. He was third of eight on his latest appearance at Nottingham (1m6f, heavy). Remains off the same mark here. Has a good each-way chance.

0-6 so far but she showed some promise on her penultimate start when she was second of 13 at Wolverhampton (1m6f) on the AW. Needs to bounce back from disappointing effort at Chelmsford (1m5½f) last time. Visor on for first time. One to consider.

Although he is still a maiden, his form has improved since joining handicap company. He was third of 10 last time at Wolverhampton (1m1½f) on the AW on what was his first run for his new yard. Up in trip where he does need to prove his stamina.

Betting

Forecast

Hooflepuff (9/4), Croeso Cymraeg (3/1), Aria Rose (6/1), Givepeaceachance (7/1), Lauberhorn Rocket (8/1), Kaylen's Mischief (9/1), Falls Creek (14/1), Malt Teaser (16/1), Famous Dynasty (33/1), Jalingo (40/1), Presence Process (50/1), Ace Cheetah (50/1), Rahmah (66/1), Highway Bess (100/1)

Verdict

ARIA ROSE produced the best run of his career on his opening start for his new yard last time and if he delivers a similar kind of performance here, he should be able to break his maiden. Croeso Cymraeg has been in excellent form this season and he is likely to be in the mix once more, despite a 1lb higher mark than his near miss at Chelmsford, while Givepeaceachance has been so consistent this season and it would be a surprise if he did not make the frame again here.
