59-10OR: 72BFCD

C&D win came in this race last year off a 2lb lower mark, continues in a good run of form at the moment (win and a second at Sandown). Should run a sound race again given his recent exploits and previous course firm; leading player.

79-10OR: 72D

Back on track at Sandown last time although he may well have found even a stiff 5f too sharp for him on that occasion. No doubt that he's well weighted on old form but may well need a start over 6f before he is able to take advantage.

39-9OR: 72

New headgear combination now makes its debut having failed to make any forward steps from his comeback run at Newbury last time; stiffer test than this. Yet to win a race this will be his first try at a trip this short; best watched for now.

39-7OR: 70D

Two wins to his name in Germany this year over 6f/7f he now makes his GB/stable debut over the shortest test he's had in his career. Well below form when last seen in Germany; interesting to see if there's any market support.

59-6OR: 68CD

Third in this contest last year off a 5lb lower mark he does have winning form at this venue including at this trip. Turned in his best effort of the season last time on the Polytrack at Kempton (6f); merits consideration on that performance.

39-4OR: 67D

Produced his best recent form on synthetic surfaces looking particularly at home on the Fibresand at Southwell where he won last time over 6f. Yet to win on turf he needs to match his AW form to make an impact in this contest.

49-2OR: 64D

Has built up a long losing sequence stretching back to July 2018 when he won on just his second career start. Since then it's been a tale of inconsistency and mainly disappointment despite falling to a good mark; needs others to falter.

48-12OR: 60BF

Lightly-raced maiden who returns from a long absence having had only one attempt in handicap company where she lost all chance at the start. Hard to make a case versus some in-form types with little experience to call on.

38-10OR: 59

Ran well enough away from handicap company last time (had plenty of use made of her in testing conditions) but has yet to win a race. Handicapper gives her chance off her lowest ever mark; meets some that appeal more on balance.

58-8OR: 56D

Promise in her penultimate run off a much-reduced mark but failed to live up to the hope given by that start last time although conditions weren't quite the same (more patient ride/drop in trip). Well handicapped but comes with risks attached.

48-7OR: 50

Penalised for her recent Brighton win which saw her build on two recent solid efforts (travelled well, kept on strongly). Takes a step back up in grade but won in this class and off this mark last year; should be in the mix again.

Betting

Forecast

Our Oystercatcher (7/2), Mrs Worthington (9/2), Requited (5/1), Doc Sportello (6/1), Firenze Rosa (6/1), Secret Potion (13/2), Princely (10/1), Dormio (11/1), Hieronymus (16/1), Porto Ferro (28/1), Grandma Tilly (33/1)

Verdict

The first and third from this contest last year Our Oystercatcher and Secret Potion both appear again with the former taking much the same path as he did last year and appearing in fine form; he’ll take some beating even off topweight. Recent Brighton winner FIRENZE ROSA is preferred though despite facing a stiffer task with the draw helping her as the runners tend to head to the stands’ side in the straight and she’s drawn 10 of the 11. Other leading contenders such as Mrs Worthington and Requited have question marks against them and it won’t be a surprise to see the stablemate of the selection Porto Ferro outrun her odds into place.
