13/2

Long-standing maiden but far from disgraced latest when beaten under 3L into fifth of 11 at Chelmsford. Drops to class 7 for the first time so probably has her best chance to date.

Unplaced maiden only beat four rivals in as many races last summer and two runs as a juvenile little more compelling.

Steps back to 6f today after close third and fourth placed finishes over 7f at this course the last twice and in both he led inside the final furlong. Looks a leading contender now.

Five-time winner but losing run stretches back to 2017 and unplaced in last 11 starts. Three lifeless races since joining this yard make him hard to fancy.

Belatedly found consistency and knocking on the door of a second career score with close seconds at Southwell and Chelmsford the last twice. Upped 3lb but certainly one of the main players here.

Now 18 months since her fourth and most recent win. Rather inconsistent in recent starts but should be capable of going well off this mark.

Irish raider only placed once in 11 starts for previous trainer Peter Fahey. Cutting little ice at Dundalk lately but ships in for a very weak contest so market worth noting.

Is on a long losing stretch since his last victory in August 2018. Has been well held on his last three starts. His last appearance at this course gives him a lot to prove.

Returning from 13 months off when last of 13 here and had filled the same spot when previously sighted at Salisbury. Another break since and has to be considered a risky proposition overall.

Maiden ran her best race so far when a close second on last visit here and ran two solid races in this context since at Lingfield. Expect her to prove similarly competitive here if not too hampered by draw on the wing.

Hardly prolific but placed four times on AW this winter. Best form arguably over 7f so drop back in trip today a slight concern but certainly has better claims than many.

Forecast

Drop Kick Murphi (2/1), A Step Too Far (5/2), Distant Applause (9/2), Maid Millie (13/2), Es Que Magic (7/1), Porto Ferro (14/1), Tilsworth Rose (14/1), Autumn Splendour (25/1), Delagate The Lady (40/1), Bahamian Heights (50/1), Layla's Dream (50/1), W G Grace (80/1)

Verdict

Recent winning form is absent here but TILSWORTH ROSE has been getting closest and she gets the vote today after back-to-back seconds coming into this. Others with live chances include Distant Applause who has run well the last twice over this trip (possibly didn't stay 7f in-between), Es Que Magic who has twice been collared late over 7f and downgrade Maid Millie.
