7/2

Appeared for the first time at Redcar (6f) last month where he could only come home ninth of 12. He was 3L clear with 2f to go on his debut so this drop down to 5f should help. Each-way claims.

11/1

Made a promising start to his career when he finished third of 11 on his debut at Catterick (6f), beaten 1½L after going off as the 3/1 favourite. Stepping down to 5f for his second appearance. One to consider.

Had just one horse behind her on her debut at Nottingham (5f) back in April where she was in touch with the leading pack before weakening inside the final 1f. Likely to improve on second run but others make more of an appeal.

Hellvelyn filly. Her dam was a maiden in sprints but is a half-sister to 1m winner Salford Secret who was a smart operator. Likely to improve with experience. Best to watch on debut.

Was only beaten by a neck into second place on her debut at this track (6f). Followed that up with two modest performances since then. Drops back down to the 5f trip here. One for the shortlist.

Finished fourth of 14 on her opening start at Salisbury (6f) earlier this month in what was a promising opening outing after going off at 40/1. She was staying on well in the closing stages of the race. Likely to improve here.

Has produced some encouraging performances in her five starts to date. She was second of nine on her latest outing at Carlisle (5f, heavy) in a handicap contest. Leading player at this level.

Came home last of six at Wolverhampton (5f) on the AW on her debut appearance. She stumbled early into the race and lost a shoe. Set for her first start on turf here. Needs to improve to be in the mix.

29-0OR:

Has finished down the field in both of her to two starts to date. She was seventh of nine on her latest outing on the AW at Wolverhampton (5f) after going off at 20/1. Needs to take a huge stride forward.

Swiss Spirit filly. Her dam was a winner over 5f as a two-year-old. Represents a leading yard so she has to respected on her opening start. Market likely to say a lot about her chances of a debut success.

Betting

Forecast

Mecca's Hot Steps (5/2), Jeanie B (7/2), Joshua R (7/2), Spirit Of The Sky (5/1), Hidden Spell (9/1), Seas Of Elzaam (11/1), Apache Bay (33/1), Sassy Lassy (40/1), Belle Voci (50/1), Orange Justice (100/1)

Verdict

HIDDEN SPELL was unlucky not to break her maiden on her debut when she was just a neck behind in second place. This looks a great opportunity for her to prevail at the fourth attempt on her drop back down to 5f. Mecca's Hot Steps returns to maiden company and on the evidence on what she has shown on the track, she should be in the mix, while Seas Of Elzaam has to enter your calculations following a bright debut where he hit the frame over 6f.
