11/4
Notched second success in good style at Plumpton (25f) in December and creditable fourth off 9 lb higher at Kempton last time. Not taken lightly in first-time cheekpieces now.

4/1
Won first 3 starts over hurdles for Philip Kirby last season. Largely underwhelming since but not disgraced after wind op when fourth last two runs, in Newcastle jumpers bumper latest. Respected.

8/1
Winner of 2 of her first 3 starts for new yard this season, in 2¼m Kelso handicap on latter occasion. Turned in poor effort at Newbury last time though so needs to get back on track.

18/1
Enhanced excellent record at Ayr when landing 20f heavy-ground handicap in December. Back from a break but still merits consideration once more despite 5 lb rise.

7/2
Improved performer last term, winning 4 times, and signalled she's ready to strike again when second of 12 in handicap at Doncaster (19.4f) 43 days ago. Weighted to go very close now.

Forecast

Fontaine Collonges (7/4), Midnightreflection (11/4), Sexy Lot (11/4), Runasimi River (7/2), Desaray Girl (4/1), Schiaparannie (8/1), Baby Ticker (18/1)

Verdict

None of the septet can be safely ruled out but RUNASIMI RIVER scored four times last season and looks primed for a bold showing after an encouraging second at Doncaster. Fontaine Collonges rates a big threat stepping up in trip on her handicap bow and the progressive Sexy Lot is another well worth a second look.

  1. RUNASIMI RIVER
  2. FONTAINE COLLONGES (FR)
  3. SEXY LOT (GER)
