11/1

Ran well when finishing runner-up in a heavy ground Redcar seller last month, and similar for when 1¼L third of 11 to Scofflaw in a C&D claimer last time. Should give his running, but looks a little vulnerable back against handicappers.

Failed to progress for John Oxx, but has quickly found his feet for new connections, and improved when easily taking a 1m novice at Southwell last time. Should be effective on this surface, and a big run expected now he's found winning ways.

Best recent effort when runner-up over 1m at Lingfield in September. Didn't quite see things out when fifth over 1m½f here last time, and this longer trip is a concern given he can race freely.

Caught a tartar at Bath (1m, soft) on penultimate start, and that form has worked out well. Far from disgraced when 1½ lengths third of 11 to Sashenka over 1m3f at Kempton last time, and this intermediate trip should be ideal.

Raced from out of the weights when below form at Doncaster last time, and better judged on previous win at Redcar (1¼m, soft) in October. Needs to progress a little more to be competitive back on AW, but that is not out of the question.

Had placed a few times on the AW before opening her account in a 1m½f fillies' handicap at Nottingham in May. Scored again at that track in August, but below form there next time, and returns after a two-month break now.

Well held in soft ground at Nottingham on penultimate start, but straight back to form when 1¾L second of 12 to Earth And Sky at Kempton last time, and an improved performer on balance since wind surgery in the summer.

Lightly raced in recent times, and clearly needed the run on the back of an absence at Chepstow in July. Not encouraging that he's been on the sidelines again since that run, and easy enough to overlook.

Took advantage of a falling mark when beating next-time-out winner Charlie Arthur over C&D last time. That effort makes her competitive, even after a 5lb rise, but the step up in class and wide draw make things harder for her.

Long-standing maiden but only beaten a short-head when second at Kempton last month, and ran on well when a creditable fifth at Chelmsford recently. Could go well if reacting positively to the fitting of a visor.

Yet to live up to pedigree or lofty price-tag, but harsh to judge her on a modest handicap debut effort in heavy ground at Haydock in September, and too early to write her off. Market should prove useful now making AW debut.

Two of five Flat wins with Ed Dunlop came over C&D, but he's failed to go on from a fair start over hurdles since. Remains to be seen what ability remains in this sphere, and he's still 10lb higher than for his last AW success.

It was a weak novice she won here in April, and after a fair run on turf next time, she hasn't beaten a rival in two subsequent runs. Might appreciate return to this surface, but mark looks stiff on balance.

Betting

Forecast

Olympic Conqueror (3/1), Crimewave (10/3), Capriolette (13/2), Fares Poet (7/1), Snow Ocean (8/1), Orange Suit (8/1), Indomeneo (11/1), First Dance (14/1), Casting Spells (20/1), Classic Charm (20/1), Eesha My Flower (40/1), Saxo Jack (50/1), Boychick (66/1)

Verdict

SNOW OCEAN won at Southwell last time, but needn't be a Fibresand specialist, and should be equally effective on this surface. He is taken to follow up that novice win now back in handicaps, and gets the verdict over Capriolette, who has been running well of late, and should find this trip to her liking. First Dance won with a bit in hand here last time, and that form has already been franked by the runner-up, but a wide draw in this better contest demands a little more. Indomeneo has been running in sellers and claimers, but has a fair shout on form, and isn't taken lightly.
