Won over C&D a year ago but arrived that day in good form but that hasn't been the case of late and needs the return here to spark a revival under Oisin Murphy.

Has refused to race before and still not good at the start and that is holding her back at this stage of her career.

Excellent course record here which stands as three wins and a second from five runs. Beat the reopposing Chakril and then ran just as well in defeat behind a progressive type last week and has to be on the short list.

A better horse on the AW where he has gained all five career wins though now makes debut at this venue. Running to a similar level this season and needs to find a bit extra to get back on the winning trail.

Poor form all four runs including on handicap debut here. Has left Andrew Balding and had wind surgery so interesting to see if any money arrives.

Roger Charlton was quick to send him up to 1m6f earlier in the season but new trainer now goes back down in trip. May have more to come and this certainly the weakest contest he has been in.

Clearly hard to keep sound but does have a standout piece of form when runner up at Southwell from December 2017 (2 runs back) and interesting jockey booking so clearly worth a watch in the betting.

AW regular who has had 196 starts but has been out of the winners enclosure for 18 months. Often goes from the front but hard to see him staying there on recent form.

Runs his best races here and has just a head to find with Muraaqeb from recent run here on the same terms. That was on the back of another solid run on the AW and has to be a leading contender.

Little show in trio of maidens at around 1m but now goes handicapping over slightly further and no surprise if better now forthcoming. One to note for any market interest.

One placed effort from 19 career starts and recent efforts haven't suggested any sign of improvement and not hard to look elsewhere.

Betting

Forecast

Blowing Dixie (5/2), Muraaqeb (7/2), Chakrii (4/1), Midnight Mood (6/1), Pike Corner Cross (8/1), Seaquinn (8/1), Ximena (12/1), Principia (16/1), Outlaw Torn (25/1), Margaret J (33/1), Mister Fawkes (33/1), Trois Bon Amis (50/1)

Verdict

MURAAQEB and Chakril fought out the finish here a fortnight ago with the former coming out on top by a head, and he is taken to confirm that narrow superiority on similar terms. Blowing Dixie is down in trip having switched stables and in a race with little depth he may be able to hit the frame.
