8/1
Left previous efforts behind at huge odds when third in a 5f listed event at Ayr in September. Went a long way to confirming that form in a Newmarket Group 3 but his opening mark looks high enough.

Finished placed in the Norfolk on his second start but has become disappointing, so easy enough to oppose from a stiff opening mark.

Won twice on the AW last season and proved he's just effective on turf when returning with a good third on his handicap debut at Doncaster 12 days ago. Should give another good account.

Won a pair of novice events at 2 yrs and shaped encouragingly when fourth at Thirsk (5f) on his reappearance 18 days ago. Can do better yet and one to be interested in.

Novice/nursery winner over 6f at this course in September. Found some progress after 5 months off when second in a 13-runner handicap at Ripon (6f) 20 days ago and ought to remain competitive.

C&D winner last term but failed to come on for her reappearance when only fourth of 5 in a 5f handicap at Ripon 11 days ago. Eased a further 2 lb but has a bit to prove at present.

Not disgraced in a minor event at this course in August, but she was well beaten on all-weather debut at Wolverhampton last time and is 5 lb ‘wrong’ at the weights.

Forecasts

Showalong (13/8), Harmony Lil (11/2), Imperial Force (6/1), Army Of India (6/1), Cuban Breeze (13/2), First Company (8/1), Ey Up It's Maggie (16/1), Pacopash (125/1)

Verdict

SHOWALONG had a productive campaign at 2 yrs and can do better yet following an encouraging return at Thirsk, so he makes plenty of appeal. Harmony Lil posted a good second at Ripon recently and ought to remain competitive, as should Army of India having now proven his effectiveness on turf.

  1. SHOWALONG
  2. HARMONY LIL (IRE)
  3. ARMY OF INDIA (IRE)
