Well related individual, though he has gone backwards in three runs so far. Right up in trip for this handicap debut but will need to show more before becoming of interest.

Daughter of Nathaniel, four-race maiden in Italy; only of interest on British bow should the market vibes be positive in her favour.

All career wins (three) have come on Lingfield's Polytrack at 1m-1m2f, though most recent was in April last year. 4lb below previous win-mark on first run around this circuit.

Easy winner of a modest Lingfield AW seller on her final start for Gary Moore but has made little impact in three runs for her current yard and needs to find plenty more to get in the mix.

Overcame wide draw when staying on stoutly under pressure to break maiden at Lingfield over this trip 19 days ago, continuing progress. 3lb rise looks fair and should remain competitive.

Now 12 months since sole career win at Ffos Las (1m, good); with career tally now 1-18. Has shaped well in some recent turf runs, including over this trip. On a workable mark back in this sphere.

14-race maiden, yet to really convince on AW surfaces. Not beaten far at Chepstow in July over this trip and lower in the ratings now if able to produce the good.

Eight-race maiden, went close over this trip at Chepstow in July off a mark of 51. She hasn't been the most consistent to date however.

Runner-up three times on the spin, including twice denied a head over this C&D, prior to finding drop in trip against him at Wolverhampton. Oisin Murphy takes over now and looks a leading player back up in trip.

10-race maiden with few positives so far in truth. Last of 13 here over a mile last time, beaten 9L, and has plenty improvement to find.

Unable to open account in 18 starts, rarely threatening. Shaped better at Lingfield over this trip last time, though that did come in Class 7 company.

Maiden after 40 starts; has been placed 14 times and was 3L runner-up over C&D in May in basement handicap. Unlikely to make the breakthrough here, on form.

Five-race maiden, she produced easily her best effort last time when ½L third over a mile at Brighton. Could be on a decent mark from 1lb lower and shaped as though extra distance would be favourable last time.

Betting

Forecast

Chakrii (5/2), Fame N Fortune (3/1), Poetic Legacy (6/1), Four Mile Bridge (6/1), Ahfad (10/1), Charlie Arthur (10/1), Foxrush Take Time (14/1), Presence Process (16/1), Rocksette (20/1), Nabvutika (20/1), Sunshine Coast (25/1), Max Guevara (25/1), Cash N Carrie (33/1), Mia Vittoria (33/1)

Verdict

Fame N Fortune overcame a few negatives to win at Lingfield last time and isn't one to dismiss in the follow-up having been raised 3lb. He's shortlisted alongside Max Guevara, who has shaped well lately. Poetic Legacy comes here off a much-improved Brighton showing and is seemingly going to relish the extra yardage but CHARLIE ARTHUR is the choice. He appeared to resent the blinkers at Chepstow last time and his earlier Wolverhampton form would give him a chance, while there's also scope for better tackling this new trip.
