10-race maiden delivered a career best effort when finishing second of 10 beaten 3½L over C&D last month. More needed but not one to put a line through.

Boast a solid and consistent record of a couple of wins as well as three place efforts over C&D including a win over the combination on his latest start last month off a 6lb lower mark. Another bold bid likely.

Solid effort on return to this surface following a progressive summer campaign on turf when finishing third of 13 beaten 1L over C&D last month. Requires plenty of respect.

Six-time winner at this track which includes a couple of triumphs over C&D. Not beaten far in his most recent starts over the combination and is capable of a bold effort given a chance by the handicapper.

Course winner that has also won over this trip. Not disgraced here in a couple of starts over 5f last month but more needed stepping up in trip form negative draw.

Running well in defeat in a couple of starts over C&D last month on his first starts on the surface. More needed but entitled to have designs on prize money.

Running with great credit in her most recent starts over 7f and 5f at this venue last month. Would have been of major interest returning over C&D where the daughter of Intense Focus has two victories to her name, but for negative draw.

Produced a career-best effort to score at Cork in August, having run well on her two previous starts. Could be of interest making polytrack debut here.

AW specialist who won twice at Southwell earlier this year when in the care of trainer Brian Ellison. Solid effort over 7f for new connections here last month and worth a check in the market here.

Three-time winner on turf but the daughter of Society Rock struggled in a number of starts on the AW when in the care of trainer Stan Moore in Britain. Not disgraced on stable debut here over 5f last month but needs to step it up a little.

Six-race maiden on the track, the daughter of Kyllachy produced a solid effort over 5f to finish 3L adrift of Pillar last month. Can go well at a price from positive draw.

Getting back to somewhere near his old form at the track when finishing close up behind Fashaar in October before disappointing when never nearer eighth of 14 last month, both starts over 7f. C&D winner needs a few to falter to get involved.

Solid enough effort to get off the mark on first start at this venue when winning over C&D in October before another bold bid off a 6lb higher mark over the combination last month. Shortlisted.

10-race maiden. Ran well in defeat on AW debut finishing sixth of 14 beaten 3½L before another encouraging effort both over 5f last month. Plenty to prove stepping up in trip.

Betting

Forecast

Sabrina Fairchild (4/1), Dance Alone (4/1), Noirvento (6/1), Bellick (6/1), Pretty Smart (10/1), Amazing One (11/1), Polly Douglas (12/1), Ken's Sam's (12/1), Ticks The Boxes (14/1), Abanica (16/1), Boughtinthedark (20/1), Red Cymbal (20/1), My Good Brother (22/1), Ascot Dreamer (33/1), French (33/1), Dromod Lad (33/1), Ever Rock (40/1)

Verdict

The Henry De Bromhead-trained ABANICA can be expected to mount a bold as the daughter of Iffraaj bids to get off the mark at the 11th time of asking. The three-year-old can get a decent pull into the race from Ascot Dreamer who is expected to take the field along in the early stages and can go well at a big price. C&D winners Bellick and Sabrina Fairchild who were 3L apart over the combination in the middle of last month will undoubtedly emerge as the biggest dangers.
