Done very well since joining this yard, gaining compensation for a couple of near misses when edging out Karibana (won next time) at Chelmsford 17 days ago. Lower mark back on turf and well drawn so there are reasons to be hopeful.

Three wins in productive 2021. Has travelled well for a long way in a pair of competitive York handicaps this season and no surprise if she stages a full-scale revival now. Well drawn.

Good runner-up efforts in competitive 7f turf handicaps on last 2 starts, bumping into a progressive sort at Thirsk latterly. Can play a prominent role if the 11 box doesn't prove too much of an inconvenience.

Fair performer. Respectable fourth of 5 in handicap (18/1) at Ripon (1m, good to firm) 30 days ago, fading late on. Return to 7f should help.

Forecasts

Sir Oliver (7/4), Poet's Magic (6/1), Roundhay Park (6/1), Jilly Cooper (10/1), Algheed (10/1), Barney's Bay (12/1), Manhattanville (12/1), Cashew (12/1), Gabrial The Wire (16/1), Hathlool (18/1), Ventura Rascal (18/1), Plumette (28/1), Ciotog (50/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on POET'S MAGIC as she's travelled with a good deal of purpose on both starts this term and could be at concert pitch now, added to which she's well drawn in stall 2. Sir Oliver is another who is nicely berthed towards the inside and rates a threat. Manhattanville arrives at the top of his game and can also play a prominent role if David Probert can manoeuvre his way into a challenging position from stall 11.
