Well below form in four starts since returned to turf this summer but posted some respectable efforts on AW at Dundalk this winter. Has a bit to find on form but not ruled out if he can find his AW form.

10/1

Won a claiming race at Sligo (1m2f) last month and has run with credit in two subsequent efforts at Gowran Park (both claimers). Switch to this surface poses a new question and it's not guaranteed to suit.

2/1

Not the most consistent sort and all his wins have come over shorter trips than this. Has an AW success to his name and a talented jockey in the saddle so not without an each-way squeak if he can see out the trip.

Managed to gain a win in a maiden at Kempton back in 2015 but he's not visited the winners' enclosure since. Has plenty to prove on these terms, though he is better suited to this surface than some in here.

8/1

Won three times at Southwell in the winter of 2017/18 and holds six wins to his name at that venue. Shown virtually nothing in three 2019 starts including a couple of runs at Newcastle and optimum trip is probably 1m these days.

Has two wins from 33 Flat starts including a Dundalk win in February 2018. Struggling badly including in a couple of starts over hurdles latest but he's of interest in the hope he can find his AW form now switched to this surface.

Won a maiden at Bellewstown back in August 2017 but has shown very little since joining this outfit and hard to recommend at present.

Respectable fourth in the maiden here last year and produced some respectable efforts on AW at Chelmsford this year, including a 1m win in handicap company. Lost her way subsequently but freshened up since and respected for these connections.

8/1

Won three races in France earlier in his career and while he's been regressive since, he landed a 6f handicap at Kempton in March. That's fair form in the context of this and should be thereabouts if he bounces back from a poor effort at Lingfield.

11/4

AW specialist who won twice at Southwell earlier this year. The form of those wins is moderate (Class 6 company) but he arrives here in form having run well in defeat in two starts on AW last month.

Betting

Forecast

Hee Haw (2/1), Ticks The Boxes (11/4), Rippling Waters (7/1), Sir Ottoman (8/1), Monsieur Jimmy (8/1), Grove Hill (10/1), Marylebone (12/1), Zeb City (12/1), Crafty Hugo (14/1), Al Batal (16/1), Pari Passu (16/1), Poetic Light (20/1), Clonville (33/1)

Verdict

TICKS THE BOXES who represents the Melbourne 10 owners here has been running well in defeat of late and with this surface likely to suit, he might be able to make his presence felt in what looks a tricky contest on paper. Sir Ottoman is worthy of respect and is another who could take to this surface. Rippling Waters can't be ruled out with the likelihood she'll be back in better form after a mid-season break.
