6/4

Experienced gelding who scored over this C&D last time out. He stayed on well in the closing stages of his latest success which suggests he could be capable of following that up. Has gone up 3lb in the weights. Leading contender.

Finished seventh of 10 runners at this course (7f) on her latest appearance after weakening in the closing stages. Is stepping down in trip now and is back to her last winning mark. Worth respecting.

Remains a maiden after 11 starts, however, she has come close to that first win on a couple of appearances, including last time over this C&D when she was third of 10. Remains off the same mark. One for the shortlist.

Her sole victory came on the AW at Kempton (6f) in October 2018. Has been tailed off on both of her two starts since switching yards, with her latest outing coming on the AW at Lingfield (6f). Others appeal more.

Has not been too far away on her last two appearances. She finished fourth of nine on her latest attempt on the AW at Lingfield (5f). Stepping up in trip now. One to think about off this mark.

Came very close to success over this C&D eight days ago when he was second of eight, beaten by a head as a 50/1 shot. Is on a long losing stretch which goes back to February 2018. Remains off the same mark as his recent near miss. One to consider.

Yet to prevail in six attempts. Ran well two starts back at Wolverhampton (6f) when she was fourth of 13 but failed to build on that Newcastle (7f) on her latest start. Has had a wind op since. Cheekpieces are on for the first time. Best to watch.

Is 0-6 on the AW but she has won on turf. She was not far away on her latest appearance at this course (5f) as she finished third of nine, 1½L off the winner. Has been eased 2lb. One to think about.

Has prevailed just once on the track to date and that came at Wolverhampton (6f) in September 2018. Her form has been disappointing on her last three starts, including her latest run over this C&D where she was eighth of nine. Others are preferred.

Forecast

Deeds Not Words (6/4), Wild Flower (5/1), Sagittarian Wind (5/1), Lottie Deno (8/1), Alaskan Bay (8/1), Sugar Plum Fairy (10/1), Spenny's Lass (14/1), Ask The Guru (20/1), Grandee Daisy (20/1), Miss Gradenko (20/1)

Verdict

DEEDS NOT WORDS has had a lot of success throughout his career and his latest victory over this C&D suggests he could be back to form. He should be taken to follow up from a mark which he will have no trouble with if he is at his best. Ask The Guru was denied by just a head last time over this C&D and is likely to go close again from the same mark, while Sagittarian Wind can finish in the placings just like she did from this C&D eight days ago.
