5/1
Justified favouritism with a swift turn of foot at Chelmsford (1m6f) last week; 5lb penalty negated by the 7lb claimer Jacob Clark; unexposed as a stayer; major chance.

Won twice on the Flat during September (1m6f-2m), rising in the weights a combined total of 8lb; switches to the AW following a recent spin over hurdles at Fontwell.

11/1
Veteran; twice placed over C&D in recent months, albeit was beaten 5L by Casa Comigo in September; clearly others are open to more improvement.

40/1
20-1 winner of a 2m handicap hurdle at Plumpton (for Brendan Powell) in September 2018; best watched off a 411-day absence on debut for Louise Allan.

4/1
C&D winner (also runner-up on her last visit to this track in June); demonstrated that she's fit and well with a keeping on 50-1 third over hurdles at Taunton (2m+) a fortnight ago; each-way possibilities.

9/2
15-race maiden; 1lb lower than when finishing 6L third to Star of Athena at Wolverhampton (1m6f) three weeks ago; stable going reasonably well of late.

50/1
Now rated 9lb lower than when finishing second to True Destiny over C&D 12 months ago; all downhill since in terms of form; may strip fitter for his recent comeback run but largely unappealing.

11/2
With Sir Mark Prescott when beating Nordano by a neck at Kempton (2m) in September; has knocked at the door since, including on recent stable debut (cost 12,000gns); one to consider; stablemate of Thresholdofadream.

Sweet Naturep22
Age: 4|  Weight: 8-10| J: L Morris| T: Mrs L J Mongan| OR:  47
20/1
Newcastle novice winner (1m) for William Haggas last November; precious few positives to take from her form throughout 2019; stable appear to be clutching at straws by trying this 2m trip; unlikely.

Dancing Lilly65
Age: 4|  Weight: 8-9| J: William Carson| T: Debbie Hughes| OR:  46
20/1
Hasn't shown that she possesses a great deal of ability (0-6) and continues to ease in the weights to a basement mark of 46.

Lady Natashat74
Age: 6|  Weight: 8-9| J: Sophie Ralston| T: James Grassick| OR:  45
50/1
26-race maiden; made the frame at odds of 40-1 at Bath (1m5f, firm) on her penultimate start but that's an outlier on her CV; considered unlikely; look elsewhere.

Verdict

AFFLUENCE is unexposed over staying trips and promises to be a better horse than a Class 6 handicapper. He carries a 5lb penalty for last week's Chelmsford win (1m6f) but that is effectively negated through the deployment of the 7lb claimer Jacob Clark. His chances of following up are there for all and sundry to see with potential threats likely to emerge from the consistent Percy's Prince (now with Amanda Perrett) and the race-fit course specialist Nafaayes.
