Dual AW winner who showed he's just as good on turf with 6f Ascot success last autumn. Enough to suggest he's in form in 3 outings this year. Ought to have a say from handy draw.

Has returned in good form and ended a long losing run, winning 7f handicaps at Newcastle and Redcar (knuckled down well). Only third of 4 at Ayr latest, though.

Reacted positively to cheekpieces when returning to winning ways with 1m Haydock win (soft) last September. Headgear off on return and possibly best watched from an outside stall.

Improver in handicaps last year, winning 4 times over 7f (1 turf, 3 AW). Failed to figure in listed company final start but could resume her progression with sights lowered. Ryan Moore up.

Placed off higher marks than this in 2020 and made a sound return to action when keeping on for fourth over 7f at Chester last week. Former C&D winner. One to consider.

Fairy useful form for the Crisfords last year, including 7f Kempton win in September. A feeling he might need this first run back for a new yard unless betting hints otherwise.

Three-time C&D winner. Looked rusty when last of 4 on Ayr reappearance 17 days ago but he's always a dangerous one to discount at this venue.

Winner at Newcastle in December. Shaped quite well when seventh of 18 at Doncaster (7f) in March and perhaps unsuited by a firm surface back there since (hung left and eased). Visor added.

Verdict

BOARDMAN was back to form with a bang when winning easily in the mud at Haydock last weekend and gets the nod to make light of a penalty. Highfield Princess was very progressive in handicaps in the second half of 2020 and the booking of Ryan Moore suggests she could be primed for a bold bid on her return. Declan Carroll pair Trinity Lake and Shawaamekh are also on the shortlist.

  1. BOARDMAN
  2. HIGHFIELD PRINCESS (FR)
  3. TRINITY LAKE
