Would need to match her Epsom second to be in with a chance of taking this that run coming over 1m4f off a 1lb lower mark. Form since then below that level but a return to this trip (1m6f AW winner) may spark her into a better performance.

Anything that today's top-class amateur pilot rides is worth a second look (3-21 for this yard). Been over obstacles of late, looked ring-rusty on return to the Flat at Ripon after six months off over 1m6f; may need a greater test of stamina.

Stable debut having previously been with Henry Spiller (below form when last seen for that yard). Returns from a fair absence (may need the run); already an AW winner over 1m4f; should benefit from this trip if he's ready to go.

8/1

Five-time course winner (twice over C&D); both wins this year have come under amateur riders including today's pilot. Holding his form well and stays this trip; third here over 1m4f last time off this mark; hard to envisage him not getting involved.

Suffered a rare lapse in form last time at Redcar over 1m2f but has already won twice this year in partnership with this rider (goes well for her). Not run over this trip this year, does stay this far but may be better over slightly shorter.

Took a 1m4f handicap here last year under today's rider (claimed 7lb then) when with David Elsworth. Struggled to find the same level of form on turf since then for this yard but has won on Fibresand over this trip; currently a shade off the pace.

1110-8OR: 66C
16/1

Veteran handicapper who regularly turns up in these type of contests (goes well for today's rider). Not firing on all cylinders this year so far (has been tried in headgear); tongue-tie now goes on first time; likely to find several too good.

First run for this yard having been bought for £4,000 out of the Olly Murphy yard (yet to win on the turf on the Flat, dual AW winner). Modest form over hurdles of late, made little impact on last Flat start; makes limited appeal.

13/2

Horse/rider combination had been successful before teaming up on stable debut last time at Newbury (1m4f, soft) to finish a creditable third. Off a 1lb lower mark the duo look to be one of the leading players in this; chance much respected.

12/1

Won this race last year off an 11lb higher mark one of two course victories; mark has been much reduced since then in line with some below-par performances. Needs a sound gallop at this trip in order to get involved (failed to get that last time).

99-11OR: 55CD
20/1

A regular performer in this type of race with his regular pilot on board; has threaten to come good this term (handicapped to do so); failed to build on promise shown last two starts although not seen to best effect over 1m4f here last time.

69-9OR: 53

A career record of 0-20 on turf doesn't bode well, ran just respectably when last seen at Pontefract (visor back on; retained here). Stays this trip but hard to win with and looks vulnerable to any that is less exposed, others more persuasive.

99-9OR: 52D
8/1

Developing a dangerous penchant for finishing second having done so three times in the last five starts, that facet of his game plus his win record tempers enthusiasm. Finished a good second to an improving 3yo (Gylo; runs earlier) last time.

100/1

Returns to the Flat after an unsuccessful spell over obstacles, looking increasingly laboured in that sphere. Well beaten when last seen on the Flat on the AW (Newcastle), 8lb out of the weights, would be a surprise winner in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Chebsey Beau (11/4), St Andrews (11/2), Restive (13/2), Jan De Heem (8/1), Be Perfect (8/1), Question Of Faith (12/1), Thorntoun Care (14/1), French Mix (14/1), Country'n'western (14/1), Tapis Libre (16/1), Duke Of Yorkshire (20/1), Compatriot (50/1), Kyoto Star (50/1), Sigurd (100/1)

Verdict

An open contest with one or two who under their regular partners may be capable of bouncing back at a course where they have been successful before such as Duke Of Yorkshire and Tapis Libre. Question Of Faith (2018 winner) is another capable of marking her mark of this weight if she gets a proper gallop to aim at. Simon Walker teaming up with Chebsey Beau is of obvious interest but he might prefer a sterner test these days. Question marks remain over Jan De Heem in a finish and preference here is for Be Perfect and RESTIVE. The former goes well for Emily Bullock and has plenty of course form but the experience of Serena Brotherton just tilts events towards the latter of the fancied duo.
