2/1

C&D winner off 2lb higher, overall has a good course record, placed here last two starts (strong in the betting). Stuck on well last time (did plenty in front, as usual), finished close up to another course specialist, capable off this mark.

16/1

All wins have come left-handed (0-10 this way round), latest win coming at Wolverhampton (three-time course winner) over 9.5f in February (stable going well at time). Ran with credit back from a break prior to modest fifth at Haydock yesterday.

40/1

Won three times on the AW last year at up to 10f, resumed winning ways at the top of the year (again on the AW/10f). Yet to show a similar level of form on turf, disappointing three times of late (highly-tried once), has plenty to prove on turf.

5/2

Improved to win at Redcar (10f), made all last time on third handicap start (from a family the yard know well), first-time tongue-tie would have helped. Scope to do better still given her pedigree (especially over further), 6lb penalty not harsh.

16/1

Lightly-raced sort, looked to need the run on her handicap debut at Musselburgh (1m), left poorly placed. Nicely-weighted on the pick of her 2yo form she's not one to write off easily although the yard have been rather quiet of late.

7/2

Failed to build on the promise she had shown pre/post an eight-month break at up to 10f in her first two handicaps last time. Suffered some interference but a tame finish suggests that can't be used as excuse, jury out at this stage on her chance.

Forecast

Ideal Candy (2/1), Bollin Margaret (5/2), Itmusthavebeenlove (7/2), Bea Ryan (6/1), Hua Mulan (16/1), Beatbybeatbybeat (16/1), Minogue (33/1), Goddess Of Fire (40/1)

Verdict
Quite a complex fillies’ handicap which should be run at a good pace with Ideal Candy only having one style of running and that’s from the front. She certainly knows her way around here and despite only winning once at this venue she has lots of creditable placed efforts on her CV around here. Both Bea Ryan and BOLLIN MARGARET look to have improvement left in their locker, the former performing much better this way around last time and the latter from a family that got better with age/distance a strongly-run race may see her overcome her 6lb penalty. Minogue needs noting in the market now she gets a chance in handicaps with Hua Mulan another who is capable of more than she’s shown so far.
