Brighton 7f winner back in April who is compiling a fair record at the seaside venue having finished second twice there since. Three-time AW winner (Tapeta/Polytrack) in a purple patch last summer; has to be respected on recent efforts at this trip.

Looked to have been brought along with handicaps in mind but showed very little promise on debut in that sphere (7f, Newbury). Immediately dropped 5lb and eased in grade; more expected but has awkward draw to overcome back on the AW.

Swept back to form from out of the blue when defeating De Little Engine over 7f at Brighton (form well franked) off an advantageous mark. Not in the same form since then on both occasions he's been seen; 1m trip looked too far last time.

Already a winner this year at Brighton (goes well there despite recent disappointments at the track). Bounced back to form (first-time visor) on Tapeta last time under more patient tactics (usually front-runner); likely to be involved.

After winning over 7f at Brighton last August (first win) she produced two poor efforts and hasn't been seen since until now. One placed effort to her name on Polytrack she comes here with doubts surrounding her with a wide draw to contend with.

Showed some fair form when trained in Ireland but remains a maiden; well held on her GB/stable debut in an amateur riders' event at Sandown last time. Visor on for the first-time, hard to see him making an impression despite a good draw.

Showed fair form on his return from a wind op in April (handicap debut) but has become disappointing since then run poorly in three starts the last two on the AW for this yard. Blinkers now tried alongside the usual tongue-tie in a bid to rejuvenate.

Reproduced some of her old form on her second run back from a long break when winning at Chepstow over this trip; still looks well treated on her old form. Yet to win on the AW (0-5) but hard to ignore if she's in the same sort of form.

7f AW winner last year on just his second try at the trip; form since has a rather uneven feel to it although of late he's fared better in two starts over 1m (one here). Travelled well at Kempton last time; produced another sound effort, shortlisted.

Offered little on his handicap debut over 1m2f recently at Yarmouth having looked to be the type to do better in this sphere. Already tried over a variety of trips (made his debut over 7f); dropped 3lb from last time, progress needed to figure.

Temperamental and inconsistent type who gave very hope for the future when finishing last at Sandown last time (always behind after a slow start). Just out of the weights and one of the lesser lights; hard to enthuse over.

Shown very little so far including since being switched to handicaps off lowly marks (runs from just out of the weights). Tried in a variety of headgear and over various trips without looking as though she has the ability to win even a modest event.

Betting

Forecast

Mochalov (3/1), Miss Icon (3/1), De Little Engine (11/2), Rock Boy Grey (6/1), Sonnet Rose (6/1), Swissal (8/1), Blessed To Empress (10/1), Bigshotte (12/1), Woggle (20/1), Farhhmoreexciting (20/1), Shoyd (33/1), Daubney's Dream (50/1), Birthday Girl (66/1)

Verdict

Just a modest handicap although it does contain a few types that are capable of winning at this level. Miss Icon proved that she was back to something like her best last time although she will have to cope with a better grade and a return to the AW and for that reason DE LITTLE ENGINE is taken to return to winning ways having bounced back to form last time and looks more than capable of winning off this mark. Blessed To Impress like the selection one who goes well at Brighton is another likely to be on the premises if the visor works as well again with the sound Kempton runner-up last time Mochalov also entering calculations. Swissal and Sonnet Rose both have awkward wide draws to overcome.
