Consistent since joining Iain Jardine, yet hasn't quite managed to force his head to the front; drops back in trip and it's possible that switch could hold the key, but equally he'll need some luck in running if dropped in from an inside berth.

23-race turf maiden (multiple AW scorer); reasonably attractively weighted on turf as a result (some 27lb lower than on synthetics); idled inside the final furlong when headed close home (third) at Musselburgh (7f) last week; place claims.

Running consistently well in recent weeks, with his Thirsk fourth (6f, good) to Buccaneers Vault representing a solid level of form for this grade; drawn wide and keeping on well when third to Sfumato here (6f) subsequently; a major player over 7f.

No win since July 2018, and has fallen to a 17lb lower mark; displayed plenty of early pace when an improved second to I Know How at Carlisle (6f, good to soft) ten days ago; first career start over 7f.

Let her previous form light years behind when scoring on handicap debut over 6f at Newcastle in January - now rated 5lb higher; entitled to be sharper for her comeback run (first start for 224 days) at that track a fortnight ago; possible.

Out of form since finishing third to Thornaby Nash (beaten 2½L) at Thirsk in April, slipping quickly down the weights as a result; cheekpieces (worn latest) are discarded; first start since recent wind surgery; watching brief.

Strongest at Carlisle, and a winner of back-to-back 6f handicaps there during July; has regularly fluffed the start since and that is of course detrimental to her chances; finished eighth (behind today's rival Exchequer) at Musselburgh last week.

C&D winner (July 2018); has at times flown the flag for Galashiels trainer Katie Scott, but also isn't the easiest of horses to predict; somewhat of a disappointment when finishing last of 11 at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) last week.

Back to form with a solid performance over 6f here recently, finishing a closing second to Carlovian after meeting trouble in running; lowly-rated (competes off the same mark); of definite interest now returned to 7f; should be positively involved.

Broke his duck on turf at the 24th attempt when winning a 1m apprentices' handicap at Ripon (good to soft) in August; was nearest at the finish when placed over 7f at Musselburgh subsequently; competes off a 2lb higher mark from the widest draw.

5lb above her last winning mark (7f); given a forceful front-running ride by Luke Morris when run down late by the 50-1 shot Olaf in a 1m1f Lingfield claimer (good to firm) last month; the drop back to 7f looks to be a sensible approach.

Hasn't won since scoring over 6f (soft) here last October; 16lb lower in the weights and almost exploited that leniency under a positive ride from Harrison Shaw here (6f) 24 days ago - 1½L third to Someone Exciting; has won over 7f in the past.

Infrequent winner - sole success came in a 7f Redcar seller (good to firm) in June 2018; placed (never dangerous) off this career low mark on the AW at Wolverhampton (7f) six weeks ago; seems unlikely unless the market speaks positively.

Betting

Forecast

Eldelbar (4/1), Christmas Night (5/1), Mansfield (7/1), Tarnhelm (7/1), Ishebayorgrey (7/1), Suitcase 'n' Taxi (8/1), Exchequer (10/1), Paddy's Pursuit (12/1), Robben Rainbow (16/1), Lukoutoldmakezebak (16/1), Lady Lavinia (16/1), Scandinavian Lady (20/1), Vallarta (22/1), Seafaring Girl (33/1)

Verdict

A relatively interesting contest for the grade with at least a couple of horses having caught the eye as potential future winners. Geoff Harker's Eldelbar has slipped to a career low handicap mark, and after attracting some each-way interest was probably a shade unlucky (met trouble in running) not to bustle-up the winner Carlovian over 6f here recently. However, a marginal preference is for the Stella Barclay-trained MANSFIELD who is evidently thought well capable of winning a race from his current handicap mark (57) on the back of a couple of solid performances over 6f. Others in with a shout for the minor places include Exchequer and Scandinavian Lady.
