Remains a maiden after 13 starts, and while she promised better on her return from a break here last month, she failed to deliver on that promise at Leicester next time, and is opposable again.

Runner-up off a higher mark at Windsor in June, and would have every chance if repeating that form, but she's been disappointing latterly, and only seventh of 10 in a 1¼m handicap here last time.

Took an age to shed his maiden status, but took advantage of handicapper's generosity by winning a 1¼m handicap at Leicester last time from Orange Suit, and avoids a penalty for that success. That may give him the confidence to kick on.

Was gaining a second win of the year when getting up late to win at Brighton (1½m) last time, beating Sea of Mystery. With that rival winning since, the form looks quite solid, and he's shortlisted.

Quickly back to the mark off which he won at Lingfield (1m3½f) last month, although he's not really been in the same form in three subsequent runs, and wandered badly when behind Kirtling at Brighton last time.

Won this contest last year, and would have a big chance of a repeat if in the same form, but the fact is that he has struggled badly for form this season, and it takes a leap of faith to back him as a result.

Won over C&D in October, and has fallen back to that mark. Ran poorly over shorter here last time, but possible to excuse that after a promising return, and no surprise to see her on the premises.

Barely had to improve when winning a weak handicap at Bath last month, and had no excuses when a respectable 4½l fifth of 9 to Robert Fitzroy over C&D last time. Likely to find a couple better treated again.

Ran up to her best when fourth to Robert Fitzroy over C&D on her penultimate start, but below that form when fourth to Gylo at Beverley last time, albeit not disgraced. Others a bit more compelling.

Improved since upped to this sort of trip and ran well when second on her handicap debut at Chelmsford. Excuses when well beaten at Lingfield last time, but needs to bounce back, and is yet to prove her worth on turf.

Ran well when 2L fourth in a big field C&D handicap in July, but he has his quirks, and looked in no mood to battle when well held last time. Not one to trust.

Won twice last summer, including over C&D, but his form has dropped off worryingly, and no sign of a revival in two outings this year.

Disappointed when favourite at Lingfield last time, but had been running creditably in handicaps prior to that, making the frame on five consecutive starts. Good claimer booked, and could well bounce back given her overall consistency.

Veteran who won at Chelmsford in June, but has struggled to make much of an impact since, and well below form on his last few starts. Makes very little appeal.

In a good vein of form given his basement rating, and again placed over C&D last time, when beaten just a neck into third. Has never raced beyond that trip, but claims if staying.

Betting

Forecast

Sea Of Mystery (15/8), Konigin (15/2), No Thanks (8/1), Mistress Nellie (8/1), Movie Star (9/1), Minnelli (12/1), Incredible Dream (12/1), Kirtling (12/1), Telekinetic (12/1), Percy Toplis (14/1), Lily Ash (20/1), Contingency Fee (25/1), Right About Now (33/1), Zappiness (33/1), Carvelas (66/1), Sexy Secret (66/1)

Verdict

Despite winning at Leicester last time, SEA OF MYSTERY is better off with Kirtling for his narrow defeat at the hands of that rival at Brighton. That pair make most appeal on recent evidence, but there are a number who could figure if showing their best form notably Lily Ash, who is a C&D winner and fresher than most.
