5-time course winner. 18/1, twelfth of 14 in handicap at Newbury (16f, heavy) 35 days ago. 9lb higher now back on all-weather. Down in trip. Return to this venue should suit.
80/1 and tongue strap on for 1st time in this code, first run since leaving Dan Skelton when last of 13 in handicap at Wolverhampton (9.5f) 14 days ago. Back up in trip. Others more persuasive.
Lightly-raced maiden. Good second of 12 in handicap (5/4) at Newcastle (10.2f) 17 days ago. Makes fibresand debut. Should progress.
Lightly-raced winner over C&D in October. 10/3, eleventh of 12 in handicap at Redcar (14f, heavy) 24 days ago. Can forgive that run and return to this surface should see her go close.
4-time C&D winner. Fifth of 6 in handicap at Wolverhampton (14f, 66/1) 25 days ago, slowly away. Needs to rediscover his form.
C&D winner. Latest win here in October. Respectable fifth of 9 in handicap (12/1) at this course (14.1f) 18 days ago. Each-way player.
3-time C&D winner. 50/1, tenth of 14 in handicap at Kempton (11f) 9 days ago, needing stronger gallop. Return to this surface should suit.
Sixteen runs since last win in 2017. 18/1, last of 7 in handicap at Catterick (12.1f, heavy) 52 days ago, slowly away. Makes fibresand debut.
Lightly-raced maiden. First run since leaving D. K. Weld when respectable third of 9 in handicap (3/1) at this course (7.1f) 18 days ago, needing stiffer test. Significantly up in trip. Must improve.
Sky Power (7/4), Notation (5/1), Cold Harbour (6/1), Tynecastle Park (6/1), Blowing Dixie (8/1), Mostallim (10/1), Thawry (12/1), Lady Camelot (16/1), Scorched Earth (25/1)
NOTATION is lightly raced and has already proven herself over C&D. She may well have more to offer and looks the one to beat. Sky Power is a progressive colt who will go close if handling this unique surface. Thawry holds solid each-way claims.
