Has shown himself to be very limited in a series of runs in varied company, and remains easy to oppose, accepting that this looks a weak race of its type.

Made a promising start for Roger Charlton as a juvenile, but has weakened tamely on all three starts this year. This represents a significant drop in class, though, so dangerous to dismiss.

Slowly into stride and ultimately well beaten in two starts just over a year ago. Hard to tell what ability he has based on those runs, but will be eligible for handicaps after another run, and probably best watched unless attracting support.

7/2

Modest maiden handicapper on balance, but back to best when second of 6 to Sarsaparilla Kit in a 6f maiden at Lingfield last time, racing more prominently. Blinkers replace cheekpieces now, and solid place claims if not racing too freely.

Sepoy half-brother to winners at 7f/1m. Showed ability when 12¼L fifth of 8 to Desert Caravan in a stronger race than this over 1m½f here on debut, and is entitled to get involved with normal progression.

Claims on the ability he showed for William Haggas, and not discredited on his debut for new connections here last month. Followed that with a poor run in a handicap at Kempton last time, though, and needs to bounce back.

Showed some ability for Dave Evans earlier in the year, but three runs for new connections have been poor, and he makes limited appeal on balance.

By Gio Ponti out of a winning half-sister to US Grade 2 winner Three Degrees. Making rather a late debut, but yard does well here, and he won't have to be anything special to make a winning debut.

Has shown only modest form in similar events and not progressing, so while she may be able to sneak a minor placing, it would be a surprise if she was good enough to score without others underperforming.

Tailed off on handicap debut last time having shown nothing in qualifying, and very doubtful whether blinkers will make any appreciable difference.

9/1

Best recent effort when ¾L third of 12 to Sharrabang over 6f here, but she's had plenty of chances, and while this track clearly suits, she would be much better off in handicaps.

Betting

Forecast

Sherpa Trail (15/8), Ghost Buy (7/2), Kentucky Kingdom (7/1), Just Magic (8/1), Isabella Ruby (9/1), Doubly Beautiful (9/1), Duke Debonair (20/1), Disey's Edge (20/1), Peters Pudding (28/1), Andies Armies (66/1), Freshfield Ferris (100/1)

Verdict

Those who bring recent form to the table, notably Ghost Buy and Kentucky Kingdom, do not set a high bar, and a chance is taken on the well-bred debutant SHERPA TRAIL, whose trainer knows how to ready one, and has found a good opportunity.
