79-8OR: 61CD
7/2

Been in good form recently with two C&D wins in late-2019, including last time. Is up 9lb in the weights but has been placed off 13lb higher in the past and has to be respected in her current vein of form under optimum conditions.

4/1

On a fair mark on his turf form during last summer but has been well beaten on two starts since a break. Those were both over 1m4f and that trip may stretch him so the return to 1m2f here should suit and has an each-way squeak.

4/1

All three wins have been here (7f-1m2f) and was well-backed when winning over C&D in August off 2lb lower. Hasn't matched that in three runs since and was well-beaten at Southwell (1m) recently. Return here should help and market will guide.

Showed a little bit more at Wolverhampton two and three runs ago but disappointed there last time (all 1m1½f) despite being dropped in grade. Losing run mounting up and hard to be enthusiastic on after her latest effort.

Holds a modest strike rate of just 1-29. Sole career win came over C&D in February 2019 off15lb higher. Dropped in the weights after being mostly out form and although there were signs of a revival in October, he ran poorly here last time (1m4½f).

Denied a clear run when shaping as though a return to form was on the cards over C&D two starts ago but ran abysmally over C&D when last seen, trailing home last of 13. Yard has only had one winner in each of the last four years so passed over.

Ran a handful of fair races on turf/AW (1m1½f-1m4f) during 2019 but never posed a serious threat. More consistent than most in this line-up and has place claims.

33/1

On her third trainer after 12 starts, her best form came in May/June 2019 when making the frame twice (1m2f). Downhill since then, however, including on both runs for this yard (one hurdle, one Flat) and is best watched.

58-7OR: 46CD

Her only success came over C&D in May 2019 off this mark and has ran well on both her recent starts over C&D. Not the most consistent but no surprise to see her in the mix.

26-race maiden who has been placed twice here (7f). Best form recently, however, has come on the Fibresand at Southwell (7f/1m). Soundly beaten on all three runs at 1m2f+ and has stamina to confirm. Others preferred.

10-race maiden who has never landed a blow in any of her runs. Off since September and 5lb out of the handicap make her easy to dismiss.

68-7OR: 45
33/1

Struggled for consistency and form in her first eight starts but has shaped better in her last three outings after a break. Ran to a similar level in those races (7f-1m½f) and worth a go at this longer trip given how she kept on last time.

Record currently stands at 0/21. She did finish a distant second (beaten 10L) at Southwell (1m) four starts back but has been well beaten in her races since then and would be a surprise winner.

150/1

A maiden after 10 starts who was stuffed on all four starts in 2019. Races from 7lb out of the handicap and will likely struggle once again.

Betting

Forecast

Corked (7/2), Mr Carbonator (4/1), Melgate Majeure (4/1), Thawry (6/1), Kodi Koh (12/1), Elysee Star (12/1), Just Once (12/1), Mrs Hoo (20/1), False Id (25/1), Sweet Marmalade (33/1), Lady Carduros (33/1), Jagerbond (40/1), Circuit (50/1), Hey Jazzy Lady (150/1)

Verdict

It's very hard to knock the claims of CORKED as the only horse coming into the race in form. Despite another rise in the weights she is still on fair mark and these conditions suit her well. Mr Carbonator should appreciate the drop in trip and return to a sounder surface after his recent Southwell run whilst Kodi Koh ran fairly on her last two runs and is another who handles these conditions. Keep an eye on any money for Melgate Majeure.
