Placed 3 times on turf before rounding off his 2-y-o campaign with Southwell novice win. Taken a while to get him back but he is open to progress.

Struck at just second time of asking for this yard at Ayr (5f, soft) in September. Shaped as if still in good form when fifth of 11 in handicap at Haydock (5f, good) 23 days ago.

Won this 12 months ago and could be set to make a bold bid to stage a repeat after shaping well from a poor position at Redcar 16 days ago. Player.

Veteran who scored at Glorious Goodwood last year. In better form that his results this summer might suggest and he's handicapped to go well if primed after a 3-month break.

On a winning mark but hasn't really shown enough of late to suggest he's ready to take advantage.

Pair of AW wins at the start of the year but hasn't offered much in 2 comeback runs on turf.

13/2

In common with a few from her stable she's found some form of late, winning twice in the mud at Catterick. Further 7 lb rise unlikely to prevent a prominent showing on hat-trick bid.

Forecast

John Kirkup (11/4), Our Little Pony (7/2), James Watt (13/2), Jill Rose (13/2), Mid Winster (8/1), Bossipop (11/1), Wasntexpectingthat (14/1), Abate (16/1), Quick Look (22/1), The Bell Conductor (25/1), Van Gerwen (25/1), Poyle Vinnie (33/1)

Verdict

OUR LITTLE PONY caught the eye at Redcar last time and is taken to land this race for the second year running. Mid Winster could easily have more to come for the Paul Midgley yard and rates a threat along with the hat-tricking seeking Jill Rose.

  1. OUR LITTLE PONY
  2. MID WINSTER
  3. JILL ROSE
