12/1
Quickly landed back to back events at Chester and Hamilton last month and ran at least as well third of 12 in handicap (15/2) at Doncaster (10.2f, good to firm) 7 days ago. Can give another good account if able to get lead from wide draw.

2 wins from 4 runs this year, including over C&D in April. Perhaps lacked for bit of pace last time but may prove capable of better here with likely stronger gallop to suit.

Productive in Racing League last summer, finishing second twice before scoring over 12f here but looks to have an uphill task to make a winning return after 10-month absence.

9/2
Dual C&D winner produced a rare poor effort when third of 4 in handicap at Newmarket (10f, good to firm) 19 days ago. Largely reliable sort was also C&D runner-up in June, so holds claims if able to bounce back.

Latest win at Wolverhampton in February but ran well on stable debut for this yard on penultimate outing. Not ideally placed when sixth of 7 in handicap at Windsor (8.1f, good to firm, 11/4) 59 days ago but others make more appeal.

Won 5 times last term and ran as well as she has this year when second of 8 in handicap at Sandown (10f, good) 21 days ago. Ranks high on the shortlist with expected strong pace likely to suit.

Unreliable individual. Eleven runs since last win in 2021, though has found bit of form recently, again running creditably when third of 6 in handicap at Chester (11.3f, good to firm) 34 days ago. Vulnerable to less exposed sorts.

Career best when winning 12-runner handicap at Haydock (10.2f, good to firm) 4 days ago, helped by being held up in strongly-run race. Carries penalty. Remains unexposed at this trip and is expected to be bang there with similar set-up likely to suit.

Winner at Ayr in April. Ran up to best on AW debut when third of 10 in handicap (6/1) at Newcastle (10.2f) 19 days ago, better placed than most. Still not fully exposed, but wide draw not ideal here.

Landed AW hat-trick for Tony Carroll in the spring and also won on debut for this yard at Epsom in June. Good third of 8 in handicap (10/1) at Sandown (10f, good) 21 days ago. Frame claims.

Seventeen runs since last win in 2021. 20/1, bit below form fourth of 11 in handicap at Chester (10.3f, soft) 11 days ago. Remains well treated on best form but has bit of work to do judging on recent efforts.

Remains a maiden but held form well last term, creditable third of 7 in handicap at this C&D (AW) on most recent outing in December. Others appeal as being slightly better treated, though.

Veteran has largely been in decent heart this term and step back up in trip looks a positive move, but he'll likely find this too competitive.

Forecasts

Jewel Maker (18/5), Menai Bridge (9/2), Prydwen (6/1), Group One Power (6/1), Tregony (10/1), Jean Baptiste (12/1), Light Up Our Stars (12/1), Fox Power (14/1), Life On The Rocks (14/1), Crafter (20/1), Taravara (25/1), Red October (25/1), Baby Steps (33/1), Tommy G (50/1)

Verdict

TREGONY remains somewhat unexposed over this trip and ran up to her best at Sandown last time, so can get off the mark for the season with the anticipated strong gallop likely to be beneficial. Jewel Maker hasn't previously been the easiest to win with, but should also find this test up his street under a penalty for Sunday's Haydock success. Jean Baptiste can complete the placings.
