12/1

Triple winner in this code from 1m2f-1m6f, including on both good to firm and soft. 2lb higher than his latest success at Nottingham last autumn. Can't write him off after a recent reappearance, but last three runs now have all been below par.

5/6

Debut winner at Kempton (7f, AW) last year when with David Elsworth, but has been unable to add to that in seven more starts. Went very close on stable debut at Newmarket last week and looks a big player from 2lb higher.

16/1

0-6 so far and has rarely been a serious threat in any of those races. Best couple of efforts would give her a chance from this mark, and after recent runs over 1m4f, she could appreciate the return to this trip. Not written off.

6/1

16-race maiden who is effective from 1m-1m4f, and whose best turf form has been on fast ground. Not much encouragement, however, from two recent efforts. Exposed and plenty to prove.

5/1

Sole turf success came over a similar trip at Nottingham (good) this time last year, when 1lb higher. Has only once come close to that form since on either turf or AW. Can't write her off, but needs more than her recent return from a break.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: Daniel Muscutt |  T: M Murphy|  OR: 57
66/1

Well beaten in all but one of her six starts, her best effort being in a Chelmsford fillies' novice event (1m) 15-months ago, when 1½L third. Well beaten at Leicester on recent return to action and hard to fancy from 3lb lower.

Age: 5|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: William Carson |  T: R Brisland|  OR: 53|  D
6/1

1m2f winner (good to soft) at Nottingham in 2018, but on a 25-race losing run since. Goes on any ground, this is her optimum trip, and she is now 9lb lower than when going close over C&D last August. Not ruled out.

33/1

Sole win came here (1m3½f, soft) in 2017, but now on a 31-race losing run. Little encouragement in the last three runs last year to suggest that she will be winning when fresh for the first time in her career today.

80/1

Only win came in a claimer (1m2f, good to firm) when trained in Ireland in 2016. Poor form in her four starts over the winter and very hard to make a case for her from 1lb 'wrong'.

Forecast

Songkran (5/6), Destinys Rock (5/1), Global Style (6/1), Apache Blaze (6/1), Huddle (6/1), Country'n'western (12/1), Engrave (16/1), Seventii (33/1), Dusty Damsel (66/1), Saga Sprint (80/1)

Verdict
Not many of these arrive in red hot form, so perhaps SONGKRAN, who takes his chance on the back of a good recent stable debut (when the front pair were well clear) can come good this time. Engrave might emerge as a contender now dropping back in trip, while Apache Blaze is back on a workable mark. Don't write off Country'n'western with a useful 7lb claimed.
