49-13OR: 68BFCD

C&D winner earlier in the year when competing a hat-trick under today's rider' completed two further wins since over similar trips again with this pilot on board. Failed to fire at Southwell earlier in the week (bit keen), needs to bounce back.

49-10OR: 65

Fair handicapper at his best in this sphere although he's not really shown much for some time consequently plummeting in the handicap. Not been able to take advantage though (tried over hurdles last time); others appeal more given recent exploits.

59-10OR: 65CD

Dual C&D winner who shaped as though he was back in form here over this trip last time under an inexperienced claimer (fully-fledged rider takes over). Usual headgear left off last time and again; ought to be capable off this mark given course form.

59-9OR: 64CD

Twice a winner here, once over this trip earlier in the year off a 6lb lower mark her two runs in October didn't really inspire. Went off much too hard under an inexperienced amateur last time; would benefit from a more conservative ride.

49-8OR: 63

Fair maiden handicapper who has been given three quick runs over hurdles of late in order to gain a mark. Made more impact of late when last seen on the Flat off what was then a career-low mark (1lb lower now) at Kempton; not ruled out.

89-7OR: 62C

Three-time course winner whose been lightly-raced since that last success having slipped just below that winning mark this time around. Approaches this race in poor form though having been well beaten at Southwell last time out; little appeal.

49-7OR: 62C

Two of his four AW wins have come here over shorter trips but of late his form has been less than encouraging. Just 1lb above his last winning mark he's not certain to stay this trip and would be one of the less likely winners of this.

49-6OR: 61

Her one career win on the Flat (1-22) came over a 4f shorter trip and although she's been raced at distances like this since then her recent displays have been disappointing. Well below form last time; fails to inspire on her Tapeta debut.

39-6OR: 65

Fair maiden but comes here on the back of a poor run at Lingfield on turf when having an easy time of things from the front. May yet need some more leniency from the handicapper to make an impression with this shorter trip not sure to suit.

59-6OR: 61

Ran poorly on his first run for this yard since leaving Alan King; remains winless this year (and overall on the Flat, 0-19) and looks to be struggling to find his best form. Drops a couple of furlongs in trip from last time; questions to answer.

Last RunWatch last race

39-4OR: 63WS

Relatively low-mileage in the context of this race and comes here on the back of a wind op having been easy to back last time but running creditably at Newcastle (1m4f). Attractively weighted for one who should be in the mix over a trip that suits.

39-2OR: 61C

Taken well to the AW and took advantage of a fairly weak 0-60 handicap over an extended 1m1f here to score last time (her first win). 4lb rise still leaves her on a good mark although this trip is new venture (1m3f furthest she's been so far).

Betting

Forecast

Straitouttacompton (SP), Last Enchantment (SP), Contingency Fee (SP), Miss Elsa (SP), Dream Magic (SP), Dragon Mountain (SP), Fields Of Fortune (SP), Fayetta (SP), Amor Fati (SP), Hidden Depths (SP), Scrafton (SP), Power Home (SP)

Verdict

Quite of few of these enter this arena with questions to answer although Miss Elsa has fewer question marks than most about her however, she is stepping back up in trip off a 4lb higher mark and isn’t certain to see this out. Contingency Fee returns quickly after disappointing on the Fibresand but this C&D winner has been known to bounce back quickly before. Dream Magic is a dual C&D winner and he’s likely to benefit from the addition of Richard Kingscote in the saddle. Perhaps the most interesting though is STRAITOUTTACOMPTON he looks the sort to improve having had a wind op and compared to the rest is unexposed with Hidden Depths also of interest.
