Rattled off a hat-trick earlier in the campaign that included two AW wins and a first turf success. Handicapper appears to have caught up with her but she's been running well in defeat and can't be ruled out if she eke out some improvement.

Has been running well in defeat on the Flat so far this campaign and stuck on well for second at Thirsk last time, while no match for a wide margin winner. Might need a bit more relief from the handicapper before he gets his head in front though.

Still a maiden but went close to gaining a first win here earlier in the campaign when only denied by a neck (Champarisi third). Failed to build on that at Ayr last time, showing his inconsistency and others make more appeal.

Won back-to-back races for Charlie Hills in September but she's been out of form for this yard. Unproven both with cut in the ground and at this trip so she has plenty of questions to answer for now.

Arrives bidding for a hat-trick after his wide margin success at Carlisle last time out, seemingly thriving for the step up in trip. Seemingly won with a fair bit in hand and a 9lb rise may not be enough to stop him going in again here.

Won a competitive race here back in April but he's been more miss than hit since, tailed off in two of his four subsequent starts. 2lb below that winning handicap mark so can't be ruled out if he can find his form.

Both wins to date have come on AW but has run okay in some of his 19 turf attempts. Well behind Stormin Norman at Carlisle last time out though and opposable on that basis.

Betting

Forecast

Stormin Norman (6/5), Forewarning (11/2), Champarisi (11/2), St Andrews (8/1), Remember The Days (9/1), Valkenburg (10/1), Gemini (16/1)

Verdict

A tricky contest but STORMIN NORMAN arrives in fine form after an impressive Carlisle success and he may be up to recording a hat-trick, despite a hefty rise in the weights. Champarisi shouldn't be far away and is another who has been in fair form of late. Valkenburg is back below his last winning mark and is worthy of consideration.
  1. Stormin Norman
  2. Champarisi
  3. Valkenburg
