59-11OR: 76
7/1

Won back to back races at the start of last season but yet to get off the mark for this yard and he's gone off the boil of late. Fairly handicapped but very best efforts have come on quicker ground.

A six-time winner on AW but yet to win in nine turf starts. Fair effort at Ayr last time out but seemingly better at the minimum trip.

4/1

Just one win in 22 starts and that came at Bath in 2017. Drop back in trip might help and running okay in defeat of late; not ruled out with a promising apprentice claiming 5lb.

39-7OR: 75D
7/1

Gained a third career win from 14 starts at Hamilton in July and only narrowly denied back at that venue last time. This is tougher and nudged up 1lb but likely there's still more to come from her.

5/1

Out of form in recent times and while he's back on a workable handicap mark as a result, he's never won over a trip this short. Others preferred.

12/1

Won four races last year and hinted at a return to form at Redcar last time out. 12lb below his last winning mark but ideally would prefer quicker ground than what is likely here.

Won twice last year but has lost his way this campaign, well beaten on all four starts since wind surgery. Plenty to prove at present.

9/4

Off the mark at the fifth attempt at Haydock last time out and has shown a good attitude in her five starts to date, yet to run a bad race. Leading claims from a 6lb higher handicap mark.

Betting

Forecast

Springwood Drive (9/4), Esprit De Corps (4/1), Juanito Chico (5/1), Saluti (7/1), Dancing Rave (7/1), Militia (10/1), Mr Wagyu (12/1), Another Angel (16/1), Magic City (16/1)

Verdict

SPRINGWOOD DRIVE is getting better with each run and with a less exposed profile than most, she's expected to run well in her bid for back-to-back wins. Dancing Rave is another filly in good form and she may be able to remain competitive. Mr Wagyu is very well-handicapped and shouldn't be ruled out.
