C&D winner. 20/1, last of 9 in handicap at Windsor (11.4f, soft), slowly away. Off 99 days.
Course winner. 5 wins from 15 runs this year. Latest win at Newcastle in October. Good second of 11 in handicap at this C&D (4/1) 11 days ago.
Promising sort. Won 6-runner novice event (4/7) at this course (8.6f), barely adequate test. Off 8 months. Makes handicap debut. Has good chance on form and step up in trip will suit.
33/1, good second of 13 in handicap at Lingfield (10f, AW) 20 days ago. Up in trip. Respected.
Lightly-raced winner. 2 wins from 4 runs this year. First run since leaving Owen Burrows when career best when winning 13-runner handicap at this course (9.5f, 12/1) 11 days ago, readily. Up in trip.
Respectable fourth of 12 in handicap (14/1) at Chester (10.3f, good) 58 days ago, never nearer. Enters calculations.
4-time course winner. Latest win here in October. Bit below form seventh of 12 in handicap at Newcastle (10.2f, 16/1) 14 days ago. Back up in trip.
Fair Star (2/1), Daheer (10/3), Gabrial The One (9/2), Toro Dorado (5/1), Protected Guest (8/1), Candelisa (17/2), Guroor (14/1), International Law (20/1)
FAIR STAR is 2 from 2 on the Flat, defying a penalty in good style here in March, and is taken to complete the hat-trick off what looks a fair opening mark. Gabrial The One won on his only outing on the AW at Newcastle off 1 lb higher in June so must be respected, while Daheer is another who should make a bold bid for the hat-trick after making a winning start for this yard here recently.
