Still lightly raced but is now 0-8, and can't be recommended after not being seen since being well-beaten at Wolverhampton (5f; standard) in February. Three efforts on turf also raise cause for concern.

Won over C&D in similar conditions to what are forecast, and he was in similar form prior to that victory as he is now. Not been in with a shout in any of his five starts since April. Others have more appealing profiles.

12-year-old veteran who is incredibly still running well. Posted a sound pair of efforts in defeat when runner-up at Yarmouth (5f; good to firm) either side of a slightly below-par run at Haydock (5f; good). Place claims.

Not seen since November 2017, when she trailed in a well-beaten last of 11 runners at Wolverhampton (5f; standard). Now makes comeback off a 11lb lower mark, and there is a leap of faith required to fancy this one, unless market vibes are positive.

Back to form with a narrow defeat when second at Doncaster (5f; good) last month. Won off higher marks than this in the past, and is one of a couple in this race who are suggesting their turn may be near.

Made a decent start to his 2019 campaign, but recent two efforts have been particularly uninspiring. Now returns to 5f off a career-low mark, but too much to prove to make a case for.

Still on an unchanged/career-low mark after a pair of solid runner-up efforts at Ayr (5f; soft) & Leicester (5f; good to soft) in recent weeks. Should have no problems with the forecast softer ground, and strongly hinting at a return to form.

58-8OR: 47
20/1

Not one to have full faith in as a win prospect, given that she is an almighty 0-75. However, the form of her second to a hot-favourite at Haydock (5f; soft) would bring her into this from an each-way perspective.

48-7OR: 45
14/1

Gone backwards again since she posted a clear best effort in recent times when runner-up at Catterick (5f; soft) in mid-June. Conditions likely to be similar now which could give her place claims, but she does have quite a bit to prove.

Betting

Forecast

One Boy (2/1), Valentino Sunrise (2/1), The Golden Cue (5/1), Toni's A Star (5/1), Bronze Beau (12/1), Tizwotitiz (14/1), Bluella (14/1), Celerity (20/1), Alban's Dream (33/1), Illegitimate Gains (33/1), Mysterious Look (40/1)

Verdict

A typically difficult 5f handicap puzzle to solve with the admirable Celerity holding genuine place claims after a sound effort in defeat when runner-up at Haydock last week in similar conditions to what are forecast. She is unlikely to win this with her 0-75 record, but the form of that effort gives her place claims. Similarly, One Boy has also gone close the last twice with a pair of solid runs in defeat, but he will have to play second fiddle once again, this time to VALENTINO SUNRISE who produced a seasonal best at Doncaster when second recently, is still relatively unexposed over 5f, and has the assistance of the title chasing Danny Tudhope.
