Fair form on a couple of starts on turf but was below that level back on all-weather at Kempton 6 weeks ago. Makes handicap debut but others make more appeal on this occasion.

Made it 2-3 at Kempton when winning her penultimate start and ran creditably when fifth back there last time. Seems more consistent on the all-weather than turf so others more persuasive.

Standout effort when runner-up at Wolverhampton in January but has offered litte on both starts for her current stable. pulled up at Chester when last seen. Easy to look elsewhere.

Showed improved form to get off the mark on handicap debut at Lingfield (11.6f, good) 51 days ago, driven out and always doing enough. Should go on improving and rates a leading player.

Back to winning ways in Newbury handicap over this trip last month and a creditable effort when third at Newmarket next time, not ideally placed. May find a few too good in this line-up.

Scored at Yarmouth and Brighton earlier this year. Not disgraced when 5½ lengths fifth of 8 to Sky Bright at Leicester in July but she's seemingly in the grip of the handicapper for now.

Improved in first-time cheekpieces when excellent second on handicap debut but unable to build on that in first-time blinkers next time at Yarmouth. Cheekpieces back on so worth another chance.

Confirmed previous promise under a chance of tactics when winning 3-runner handicap at Yarmouth last month, having the run of the race. Respectable effort since and cheekpieces now applied.

Lightly-raced maiden who, after 3 months off, again ran below form when sixth of 10 in handicap (13/2) at Salisbury (8f, good) 13 days ago. Plenty more needed.

Forecasts

Harston (11/4), Missile (4/1), Super Proud (11/2), Sharla (6/1), Fantalope (13/2), Lochanthem (15/2), Pirouette Queen (15/2), Light Of Thunder (10/1), New Heights (11/1), Sky Bright (14/1), Sunset Memory (16/1), Carnival Craft (80/1)

Verdict

Cases can be made for several, but the vote goes to HARSTON, who showed improved form to get off the mark on handicap debut at Lingfield in July. With further progress on the cards, Harry Eustace's charge is taken to follow up from just a 3 lb higher mark. Light of Thunder showed much more on her second handicap start when third at Windsor last time so she's feared most, ahead of Missile.
