7/2

Top-weight who has scored over C&D before. Been running over 7f more recently, and she showed more encouraging signs when not beaten far into fourth at Chepstow (7f; good) last month. Needs to build on that down in trip if she is to be involved.

Mark has been steadily falling this year, but he has been in desperate form of late, and has failed to beat a single rival the last twice at Goodwood over 5f/6f. Must give weight away to all but one of his rivals.

Coped with the 6lb rise for Brighton (6f; good to firm) victory when runner-up there last time out. Claims off unchanged mark for yard who are going through a purple patch at present (7-35 in past 14 days).

Can be forgiven latest below-par effort when she finished last at Ffos Las (5f; good), as she was on her toes in the stalls before the off. In great form prior to that disappointment, and has to be considered one of the main players.

39-4OR: 58
10/1

Respected for connections, and hasn't many tries in this company. Needs to learn to settle better though, which was her downfall when she was majorly underwhelming last time out. Drops back in trip to 5f for the first time in 2019. Not ruled out.

Nine-race maiden but she still retains potential in this sphere. Has her first try at the minimum trip, after finding 7f too far last time out. Has shown she possesses enough ability, and is the dark horse in the line-up.

Regular visitor here and is a four-time C&D winner. Not in sparkling form the last thrice, including when well-beaten over C&D in a slightly higher grade last time. Needs to raise his game by a fair margin if he is to threaten.

Been in quiet form since breaking her maiden duck back in July. Still 3lb above that winning mark, and despite not looking as exposed as some, a sizeable leap of faith is required to fancy this one.

All three efforts so far this campaign have came over this C&D. Last time out was a backward step, but she would have strong claims of being there or thereabouts if back to the form she showed prior to that. Player.

Regressive of late and three duck eggs beside his name do not instil very much confidence. Possesses a modest strike rate (1-30) and that sole career victory was achieved back in 2016. Look elsewhere for far stronger alternatives.

Likes it here and most promising effort of recent months came over this C&D when she was runner-up. Not in same form in two subsequent runs over further, so does have a bit to prove. However, return to this track could rejuvenate her off 4lb lower.

One would have hoped for considerably more on her second run back from an absence when she was beaten a long way at Chepstow (6f; good) when last seen. Been given a short break since then, but has masses to prove.

38-7OR: 47

0-13 and her profile suggests connections are still unsure what her optimum trip is. Drops back markedly in trip after failing to land a blow at Chepstow (1m; good) over further last time out. Very hard to fancy.

38-6OR: 45

Lightly raced compared to some in this field, but her three efforts in this grade so far in 2019 have yielded next to nothing. Not improved for the switch to handicap company this year either and can subsequently only be watched.

Not able to reproduce more encouraging effort at Thirsk (5f; good to firm) three starts ago with a pair of disappointing efforts the last twice. Failed to beat a single rival home most recently when tailed off at Catterick (5f; soft). Best watched.

Betting

Forecast

Knockabout Queen (3/1), Wild Dancer (7/2), Miss Gargar (9/2), Coastal Cyclone (8/1), Molly Blake (10/1), Sugar Plum Fairy (10/1), Aquadabra (12/1), Ask The Guru (12/1), Jaganory (14/1), Amberine (14/1), Amor Kethley (16/1), Tilsworth Rose (20/1), Wiff Waff (20/1), Picc And Go (28/1), Vino Rosso (33/1), North Korea (50/1), Illegitimate Gains (50/1)

Verdict

A fiendishly difficult puzzle to solve, with course specialists Jaganory & Amberine respected despite not showing their best form of late. She posted a below-par run when last seen, but Aquadabra had previously been flying prior to that and should resume progress if keeping calm in the preliminaries. Knockabout Queen followed up her recent win with another good run when second at Brighton, and should be bang there again. However, we'll keep the faith with MOLLY BLAKE who hasn't yet delivered on the promise she showed in maidens, but should be able to settle better in this big field. She can make it seventh time lucky for connections who are persevering.
