Went backwards from his reappearance run last time fading quickly over 7f after looking as though the break (six months off) had done him good the time before. All his wins have come on the AW but on different surfaces than this.

Dual course winner, successful here over 7f last time having dropped to a lowly level when winning a Classified stakes. Has won over this trip in handicaps here off a 1lb lower mark; ought to be involved returning to this sphere.

C&D winner who won over 7f earlier in the year and has looked to be coming back to his best of late showing up well on his last two AW starts. Right back on the mark he won off earlier in the year he's one of the leading players in this.

Too free last time when returning from five months off at Newcastle over 1m last time he's better judged on his Lingfield win earlier in the year over this trip off a 2lb lower mark. Yet to win here in seven previous efforts and other AW tracks may s

Started a short price on three occasions since this trainer took over, failing to land a gamble on his initial start for the yard, then not being seen to best effect. Ran his best race over C&D last time, can start slowly but one for the shortlist.

Did well to overcome a wide draw to open her account in a weak Wolverhampton heat over 7f. Followed up with a creditable effort when second over 7f here last time (again challenging out wide); below form when tried at this trip before.

Yet to make a real impression for this yard although he did hint at being able to produce better last time in a change of headgear. Ended up beaten far enough in the end so hard to be interested in him this time around despite a falling mark.

Dual C&D winner who has some quirks but did take a step back in the right direction last time over C&D although he did race quite freely. Not won for over a year now but is 6lb below his last winning mark; chance if he settles better.

Three-time winner over 6f but yet to try this trip having run to a poor level of late; has been tried at up to 7f (well held here over that trip last time). Well behind The King's Steed last time; not shown enough of late to be of interest.

Well below form last time at Yarmouth (7f, heavy) never threatening to win with that run really summing up her season. Disappointing on several occasions; 0-3 around this venue and others have far stronger claims.

On a long losing sequence which has now reached 20 starts and hasn't given much encouragement of late that this race will bring that run to an end. Well beaten over C&D last time in first-time blinkers; hard to make a case for.

Well held in AW maidens for Neil Mulholland she 's fared little better for this yard in four handicaps over a variety of trips. Cheekpieces now reached for (first-time) but hard to work up any enthusiasm for her chance.

Modest maiden who departed Richard Hughes yard for £3,500 and subsequently gelded. Offered little on her first outing for this yard over C&D, would need to take a major step forward to be competitive.

Seven defeats off basement marks in handicaps finishing well held on the majority of occasions; well beaten last time over 7f at Kempton. Others make far more appeal even in this lowly company.

Betting

Forecast

Rosarno (5/2), The King's Steed (3/1), Caribbean Spring (6/1), Caledonia Laird (7/1), Squire (10/1), Quick Recovery (11/1), So Claire (11/1), Clement (16/1), Jailbreak (25/1), Arrowzone (33/1), Iris's Spirit (40/1), Ocean Temptress (50/1), Lady Carduros (66/1), Ramblow (100/1)

Verdict

Not many of these make much appeal or have solid profiles and given the form CALEDONIA LAIRD has shown of late he’s selected to get back on the winning trail. Rosarno is another who gradually appears to be finding his feet of late and although he failed to justify favouritism last time a return to handicaps off this mark ought to allow him to go close. The King’s Steed has to be respected after making all here last time, he’s well drawn to attack again. So Claire if she stays this trip and Squire if he settles better are two others to throw into the mix.
  1. Caledonia Laird
  2. Rosarno
  3. The King's Steed
