7/2

Winner of one of her two starts on this surface landing a 7f handicap last month off a 12lb lower mark. Beaten since in Listed company over 1m and takes a big drop back in trip here.

Losing run is mounting up which now stands at 16 with the Dandy Man gelding last tasting victory three years ago. Well held on return to this track earlier this month and hard to place any faith in.

Yet to hit the frame in a couple of visits to this venue. Beaten 10½L behind Geological over C&D at the beginning of the month. Others preferred.

Has shown plenty of promise in three of his four starts at the track since September. Better than his last start over 7f here last week suggests and worth another chance in this company.

40/1

Lightly-raced gelding who scored on the second start of his career at Chelmsford over 1m on the AW when in the care of trainer Simon Crisford. Well held in three starts on turf for current connections and best watched on first start on this surface.

Winner of three of his 12 visits to this track including a win over C&D. Solid and consistent sort, could be of interest now back below last winning mark.

A win and a second on only two runs for John Gosden last year but sold for just 11,000 gns in May. Well held in three starts for current connections and remains easy to oppose.

Three-time winner at this venue including a record of a win and a place from three starts over C&D. Not to be taken lightly.

Off the mark at this venue at the 11th time of asking for connections when landing the spoils in a claimer over C&D. Ran well in defeat dropping in trip last week but more of a danger here with conditions to suit.

Won for the eighth time in his career when landing a Navan 5f handicap on yielding to soft ground when last seen in October. Probably best checked in the market on just his second start on this surface.

Course winner that has also won over a similar trip. One from five at this track but likely to struggle given current form with the Captain Gerrard gelding racing 11lb lower than last winning mark.

Distance winner that has a victory over 5f at this track previously. Well held in a number of starts over the summer on turf and looks opposable in current form.

78-12OR: 69CD

Has a couple of wins at this venue to his name including a win over C&D from five starts over the combination. Has to be considered from his current mark.

20/1

Not disgraced in a couple of starts at this track over 7f since last month. Looks reasonably handicapped based on form from a couple of years ago but has a negated draw to overcome.

Betting

Forecast

Dancing On A Dream (7/2), Shore Step (4/1), Never Back Down (9/2), Nigg Bay (7/1), Aloysius Lilius (7/1), Early Call (7/1), War Hero (8/1), Annabelle Rock (12/1), Hit The Silk (14/1), Dash D'Or (16/1), Fit For Function (16/1), Lily's Prince (20/1), Nordic Passage (25/1), Kasbah (25/1), Mr Scarlet (33/1), Well Suited (40/1)

Verdict

Hard to ignore the chances of the Joseph O'Brien-trained DANCING ON A DREAM who can get back to winning ways from the one stall. Jockey Shane Crosse is likely to make the most of his 3lb claim as he attempts to dictate the pace from the front. C&D winners, Annabelle Rock and Kasbah along with distance winner, Never Back Down will be doing all their best work late on as they compete for the minor honours.
