3/1

Good efforts on her last two starts, both at Chepstow, winning one and a close runner-up in the other. Slight concern that this right-handed track may not suit as well, but an in-form mare worth plenty in a race like this, and she has a good chance.

Makes handicap debut from a realistic mark but in truth there's not been much encouragement on either of her last two starts, looking quite hard work at times. Some market support would make her more interesting, but others appeal more.

Only a couple of placings to show for her 11 starts to date and her mark is falling very quickly after some very moderate efforts this year; hard to see how she turns things around here, with the hood seemingly making little difference recently.

Couple of early placings are but a distant memory after a series of moderate efforts over the summer/autumn and was last seen pulling up in a seller, which is hardly a convincing case for being with her here.

In good form this autumn, winning a competitive event at Perth and running to that level in two subsequent outings; trip and ground both fine for her again today and no reason for her not to run her race.

Has been seen out three times this year after a 3-year absence beforehand, has clearly retained her ability but a disappointing favourite at Newton Abbot when last seen and now has another small absence to overcome. Risky, but not ruled out.

6/1

Back to form when just over a length too good for Drewmain Legend at Chepstow last time and is now 5lb worse off with that rival, which brings them closer, but that was an improved effort and a reproduction takes her close.

Yet to hit the frame in nine starts, although the odd run has hinted at some ability and it is relatively early days, so hard to write her off totally here; yard having a good time of it too, and she's worth a look at a likely big price.

610-5OR: 79C
5/1

Has ability at a low level and shaped a bit better than the bare result at Hereford last time out, but there are a few too many moderate efforts on her dancecard to be sure she'll put her best foot forward. Chance if she does, but that's an if.

710-1OR: 75
6/1

Mark has fallen considerably after some middling efforts this calendar year but it was much better at Wincanton when upped in trip last time (third). However, back to 2m here, so needs to carry that improvement forward to today.

Betting

Forecast

Drewmain Legend (3/1), Wise Coco (9/2), Boutan (5/1), Broke Away (6/1), Shadow's Girl (6/1), Kestrel Valley (17/2), Impulsive Leader (12/1), Drumreagh (20/1), Ginjo (28/1), Dorette (66/1)

Verdict

Not a strong event. Shadow's Girl got the better of Drewmain Legend at Chepstow and there's little between the two at today's weights. Both have their chance, but WISE COCO continues to run well and can score again. At a bigger price, impulsive Leader is worth a second look.
