Finished fourth on both starts since racing resumed including when beaten 3L over 1m5f on good ground here last time out. Interesting to see how he fares.

7/1

Ran well when 3L sixth in a 1m4f handicap at Catterick (good) last month. Worth a check in the market stepping up in distance.

8/1

Twice a winner from 16 starts but was slightly disappointing when seventh over 1m5f on good-to-firm going here last month. Needs to bounce back if she's to take this event.

12/1

Improved on debut effort for this yard when finishing third in a 1m6f handicap at Catterick (good) on seasonal reappearance last month. Visor worn for the first time that day is retained.

5/1

Placed on her last three starts including when beaten a short-head on good-to-firm ground here last month. Leading contender upped in trip despite a 1lb rise in the weights.

7/1

Victorious by a neck in a 1m6f handicap at Thirsk (good) just under a month ago. Decent 2L sixth over 1m5f here subsequently and is interesting in this contest.

Fair efforts in both starts this campaign including when fifth over 1m6f at Thirsk (good) in June. Worth a check in the market on this occasion.

Promising fifth on seasonal debut here over 1m5f but struggled when last of eight over the same C&D subsequently. Others look more reliable propositions.

20/1

Maiden after three starts including when beaten 23L in finishing fourth in a 1m2f maiden at Pontefract (good-to-firm) last time out. Stepping up markedly in trip on handicap debut.

Placed third on her last two starts including over 1m6f at Thirsk (good) Just under a month ago. Strong claims of recording a second career success.

8/1

14 race maiden ran well when 2L second over 1m5f on good ground here on his penultimate start. Interesting upped in trip having finished a good fifth in first time cheekpieces (retained over the same C&D a week later.

20/1

Eight race maiden finished a well beaten tenth over 1m4f at Catterick last month. Hopes appear to lie with this step up in distance bringing about improvement.

16/1

Beaten 11L when fourth in a handicap hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Musselburgh (good-to-soft) at the start of January. Worth a check in the market despite racing from out of the handicap on return to the Flat.

Forecast

Lizzie Loch (5/1), Iolani (7/1), Sea Art (7/1), Kitty's Cove (8/1), One Last Hug (8/1), Robeam (8/1), Smart Lass (8/1), Indian Vision (11/1), Globetrotter (11/1), Pound Off You (12/1), Mr Nice Guy (12/1), Steel Helmet (14/1), Hugoigo (14/1), Wise Coco (16/1), Red Dragoness (20/1), Miss Mistral (20/1)

Verdict
ONE LAST HUG has been running well in defeat of late and he can register his first victory by taking this competitive looking staying handicap. The selection has shown a liking for this venue in the past and he can see off his rivals here with Kitty's Cove capable of claiming second spot ahead of Lizzie Loch who has finished in the frame in each of her last three starts.
  1. One Last Hug
  2. Kitty's Cove
