Handles Fibresand and came back to some of his better form when running the reliable Red Stripes to ¾l at Chelmsford last time. Drawn to attack from the outset and must have a solid chance off the same mark here.

Winner at Thirsk in August and ran as well as could have been expected when fourth to the improving Queen Of Kalahari over C&D last week. Repeat of that gives her place chances at least.

Going nowhere quickly at present and already falling in the handicap after just a handful of starts in the sphere; no experience of Fibresand and unless the blinkers turn her around, may find herself making up the numbers.

Rapidly improving filly that has won her last two starts over C&D, grinding it out her last week but still seemed to have plenty in hand, and a 5lb rise is manageable. No saying she's hit her ceiling yet, and the one to beat again.

Has refound a bit of form this autumn, coming good at Chelmsford two starts ago but did throw in a bad one at Newmarket last time out. Yard know the time of day here but on balance, others make more appeal.

Has had a couple of goes on Fibresand, unplaced both times but she does seem to act on the surface and again gave the impression there's another race in her and a 2lb drop in the weights is welcome. Not ruled out.

Yet to win in seven starts and already on her second trainer;shaped a little better than the bare result at Wolverhampton last time though, and she may yet come good. Tried in cheekpieces here but best watched today.

Has a couple of places to show for her ten efforts to date, but in truth isn't improving and needs the reapplication of blinkers to turn things around. Has yet to try Fibresand, and basically looks too risky.

Third to Queen Of Kalahari here two starts ago (although well beaten) but threw in a dreadful effort at Newcastle last time, finishing last of ten. Coming back to Fibresand might help her cause, but in truth it needs to.

Rattled off a hat-trick of handicap wins last year but looks a pale imitation of the horse she was then, although she has at least refound a bit of form on her last two starts. Well beaten all three starts on Fibresand, however.

Likes this surface, three times a winner on it in the past twelve months although was well held when last seen. Break may have freshened him up though, so with such a good record here is hard to discount.

Had looked to be going nowhere until second over 5f here last week, although that form is suspect and looks weak (favourites all disappointed). Nevertheless, it at least gives him something to build on, so worth a second look.

Was hard enough to win with at his peak and now looks very much on the downgrade, and has achieved little over the past year. No realistic chance here.

Betting

Forecast

Queen Of Kalahari (11/8), Poeta Brasileiro (4/1), Jill Rose (9/1), Tease Maid (11/1), Painted Dream (14/1), Guardia Svizzera (14/1), Aquarius (20/1), Amelia R (20/1), Jazz Legend (20/1), Vikivaki (20/1), Blackcurrent (33/1), Alban's Dream (66/1), Robbian (100/1)

Verdict

QUEEN OF KALAHARI is carrying all before her at the moment at the moment and can score again before the handicapper finally catches up with her. Poeta Brasiliero has the weight to carry but deservedly so, and he should run his race. Jazz Legend loves the surface and should go well if ready after a break, and the likes of Amelia R and Tease Maid can be considered at likely bigger prices.
  1. Queen Of Kalahari
  2. Poeta Brasileiro
  3. Amelia R
