10/1
Latest win came over C&D in December. Hinted at revival when 13/2, seventh of 10 in handicap at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm) 30 days ago and has chance if building on that.

7/1
Placed first 4 starts this year, his first disappointing effort for a while when 15/2, tenth of 13 at Ayr (7.2f, soft) 37 days ago. Sort to bounce back quickly from a fair mark.

11/2
C&D winner. 9/2, shaped encouragingly when fifth of 12 in handicap at Catterick (7f, good to firm) 27 days ago, faring best of those held up. Now below last winning mark and can't be dismissed.

C&D winner. Probably needed run when ointh of 12 in handicap at Catterick (7f, good to firm, 17/2) on return 27 days ago. Place claims back on preferred AW.

9/1
C&D winner. 20/1, eighth of 12 in handicap at Musselburgh (7.2f, good) 34 days ago, slowly away. Not been at her best lately but Newcastle is well suited to her running style and she could bounce back.

28/1
Course winner. Latest win at Wolverhampton in March. Clearly amiss when last of 12 in handicap at Southwell (7.1f) 68 days ago but probably needs a couple of these to falter in any case.

Soon back to form when creditable third of 8 in handicap at Nottingham (8.3f, good, 13/2) 11 days ago but not easy to make a case for in a more competitive event.

Remains a maiden and is yet to recapture his best form in a pair of starts this term. Not the easiest to fancy.

7/2
Career best when winning 16-runner handicap at Redcar (7f, good to soft, 12/1) 25 days ago, cosily. Has returned an improved performer after recent wind-op and remains unexposed.

In frame 3 times already this season, creditable fourth of 12 in handicap at Musselburgh (7.2f, good) 34 days ago. Not completely discounted.

15/2
Won Windsor handicap/Yarmouth minor event on his last 2 outings and is very much of interest from this sort of mark if able to translate that improvement back to AW (little impact on this surface previously).

Thrice-raced maiden. 11/1, eleventh of 12 in maiden at Leicester (5f, good to firm) 39 days ago, unsuited by drop in trip. Significantly back up in trip. Makes handicap debut. Must improve.

Forecasts

Kodebreaker (7/2), Key Look (11/2), Crocodile Power (13/2), Unashamed (7/1), By Your Side (15/2), Eyes (9/1), Harvest Day (10/1), Rain Cap (10/1), Bold Territories (12/1), Lockdown Lass (20/1), Seas Of Elzaam (20/1), Jkr Cobbler (25/1), Amelia R (28/1), Ardat (50/1)

Verdict

KODEBREAKER improved for the step up to 7f when winning at Redcar last time and remains unexposed at the trip. Unashamed is the sort to get back to form quickly, whilst the hat-trick seeking By Your Side should pose a serious threat if translating recent improvement onto this surface. Key Look is also interesting at a likely big price.
