20/1

Only four runs in last 15 months, all over 6f without showing his old dash. Well served by testing conditions but well into veteran stage and despite tempting mark is hard to enthuse over in current form.

Best form on a sound surface and on the AW. Likes to race close to the pace but still 6lb higher than last win and looks to have something to find.

Landed her fourth win comfortably scoring in soft ground at Haydock last time off 6lb lower. Decent claimer takes 5lb off though and yard enjoying a good spell so every chance she will go well again.

Unexposed filly who scored on debut for Kevin Ryan over 5f at Newcastle in January and was fair third in Redcar novice auction penultimate start. Makes debut for new yard and unproven in conditions but worth a market check for any positive signs.

Admirable veteran mare who revels in testing ground and won well at her beloved Musselburgh last time off 6lb lower mark. Good apprentice claims 5lb back so no reason she shouldn't again go well.

Won this race 12 months ago off 5lb lower, then won again over C&D off 8lb higher than here. Handicapper has taken time to relent and not sure to enjoy the heavy ground, but won't be far away.

Came from off the pace to score over 6f here in July then raced more prominently on return visit last time when faded over 1f out on soft ground. Drops back to minimum but may find this tough.

Won over 5f on good ground at Nottingham in June and may have found 6f in soft ground here last month too much of a stretch. Drop in trip will suit and highflying apprentice claims valuable 3lb.

In fine form this spring and landed third win when scoring over C&D on soft ground in May off 2lb higher mark. Not at best last four outings but not impossible she might bounce back.

10lb better off with Economic Crisis for just over two lengths when second at Musselburgh recently. Record of just 1-26 speaks for itself though but seems in good heart at present.

Seemed to flounder in heavy ground when last of six on handicap bow here last time over 6f so slight surprise to see her returning here for same conditions. Drop in trip may be the key but has a little to prove at present.

Popped up at Ayr 6f last time at 12/1 when gaining slender success in heavy ground off 3lb lower mark. Drop back in trip not a big issue and should again be there or thereabouts.

Failed by just a head on heavy ground at Nottingham in June over 6f having lost out by a nose time before. Close third there last time but trying supporters' patience and keeps find one or two to good.

Betting

Forecast

Marietta Robusti (5/1), Fairy Stories (11/2), Economic Crisis (13/2), Mr Shelby (7/1), Burmese Blazer (8/1), Metal Exchange (10/1), Scuzeme (10/1), Tadaany (10/1), Guardia Svizzera (12/1), Twentysixthstreet (12/1), Everkyllachy (16/1), Blank Canvas (20/1), Adam's Ale (20/1)

Verdict

A typically wide open handicap sprint but the three-year-old filly MARIETTA ROBUSTI won well last time and handles conditions so should give supporters a decent run for their money once again. Good old Economic Crisis hit the target last time as well and has solid claims too, while Mr Shelby, Fairy Stories, and last year's winner Guardia Svizzera are all capable of getting involved , along with frustrating bottom weight Tadaany.
