14/1

Won three times on this surface at Wolverhampton over the winter, and stepped up on earlier turf efforts when making all to score at Brighton last time. Not easy making all here, but she is fairly treated under a 4lb penalty.

Best effort for William Jarvis when second at Windsor in June. Handicapper has taken few chances, but he's open to improvement for his shrewd and in-form new yard, and needs consideration.

Well treated on his juvenile form, but he's yet to win a handicap, and he's not fired in four outings this term. No sign of a revival in this headgear at Thirsk last time, so remains easy enough to swerve.

In a rich vein of form at present, building on a couple of promising efforts when winning a 5f handicap at Musselburgh last time. Up 5lb in a slightly better race now, but handles the surface, and can't be dismissed.

C&D winner who has also scored three-times on Fibresand at Southwell (5f-6f). Close third of 13 to Gleaming Arch here last time in first-time blinkers, and should get involved assuming he's as effective in a visor.

Improving, and runner-up on three of his last four starts in handicaps at up to 1m. Most unlucky over C&D on penultimate start, and although this trip possibly on the sharp side, a surprise if he isn't winning before long.

Has been running deplorably for most of the season, and although placed off a 19lb higher mark here last autumn, dangerous to assume he retains anything like that ability now.

Hinted at ability on last year's debut, but soundly beaten twice since, and makes little appeal going handicapping despite the fitting of blinkers.

Won off a basement mark in January, and possible that a return to this surface will help her, but recent turf efforts have been poor, and she plumbed new depths at Musselburgh last time.

Struggling to find any consistency in his form since he scored over C&D in April, but all those runs have been on turf. Could do better back on this surface, although he's racing from 3lb above his true handicap mark.

Has regressed in recent times, and her only creditable effort this year came in a weak affair in Jersey. No appeal on the balance of her domestic form.

38-9OR: 45

In good hands, and although soundly beaten in his early outings, he returned from a break with a much-improved third of 12 to Dancing Mountain in a handicap at Catterick last time. Should do better still, and not taken lightly.

Betting

Forecast

Be Proud (15/8), Gorgeous General (5/2), Great Suspense (11/2), Spirit Of Zebedee (10/1), Sambucca Spirit (11/1), Star Cracker (12/1), Toni's A Star (14/1), Super Florence (18/1), Raypeteafterme (25/1), Packington Lane (33/1), Encoded (40/1), Mixed Up Miss (100/1), Lady Joanna Vassa (125/1)

Verdict

BE PROUD is clearly on a winning mark given a couple of agonising recent defeats, including over C&D, and while this trip is sharp enough, he's taken to build on recent efforts. Gorgeous General is feared most, with Toni's A Star and the lightly-weighted Sambucca Spirit also respected.
