9/1

Running well while looking high enough in the weights but gets a further 2lb back here and the first-time visor so not ruled out altogether.

17/2

Upped 6lb today for winning 14-runner 1m handicap at Kempton last month. Looked worth a go over 1m2f there and if she stays she should again make a bold bid.

9/1

Dual course winner finished third and second here the last twice over 1m2f and 1m showing his wellbeing even at the grand old age of 11. Again has place prospects.

20/1

In fair form over the winter on AW but three post-lockdown runs short of his best and given 1m is probably preferred he has plenty of questions to answer here.

12/1

Inconsistent performer only 1-25 on turf but ran reasonably well when fifth over C&D latest. Gets 2lb back and may strip fitter but still never one to be confident in.

Age: 6|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: Selma Grage |  T: R Eddery|  OR: 46|  C
16/1

Sole win was in 2017 and although she hasn't been disgraced in two starts this year neither has suggested her an imminent winner. Place possibilities.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-12  |  J: L Morris |  T: Rae Guest|  OR: 53
16/1

Showed little in 1m novice races and big step up to 1m4f on handicap debut only helped her make minor gains. Step back to 1m2f now with blinkers fitted in a very ordinary race.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-12  |  J: Barry McHugh |  T: R A Fahey|  OR: 53
22/1

Only had five starts but no improvement shown in handicaps including when upped to this trip at Beverley latest (eighth of nine). Hard to fancy.

33/1

11-year-old a seven-time winner but 0-23 lifetime on turf. Fourth at Leicester five weeks ago a decent effort but hard to be confident.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: Callum Shepherd |  T: D M Simcock|  OR: 52
22/1

Handicap debutant beaten double digit lengths in all three starts to date. Weak contest to start but not seen much to fancy him.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-8  |  J: Hollie Doyle |  T: I Mohammed|  OR: 49|  BF
5/4

Finally finding her feet with seconds at Ripon over 1m2f and over C&D latest. 4lb handicap rise ups the ante but in such a weak contest she looks a leading contender.

12

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-6  |  J: Josephine Gordon |  T: H Morrison|  OR: 47
14/1

Eighth of 14 beaten 16L on handicap bow at Windsor latest and although this is a little easier she looks likely to come up fruitless again.

Betting

Forecast

Volcano Bay (5/4), Lady Morpheus (17/2), Bristol Missile (9/1), Lunar Deity (9/1), Rainbow Jazz (12/1), Whitehaven (14/1), Seventii (16/1), Sea Of Maria (16/1), Sharp Operator (20/1), Easy Desire (22/1), Storming Jibreel (22/1), Carvelas (33/1)

Verdict
Recent wins are few and far between here so recent Kempton scorer LADY MORPHEUS is quite obviously the one to beat even though not entirely certain to stay the extra 2f today. Twice second Volcano Bay looks the best of the three-year-olds and but for the 4lb rise she may have been the selection. In a race of this nature Bristol Missile is an each-way play.
  1. Lady Morpheus
  2. Volcano Bay
  3. Bristol Missile
