Form & Verdict
Peak efforts on AW, including latest start, and she does not look well handicapped if judged on her six races on turf; wore cheekpieces on last three starts and now tries blinkers; also drops back from 1m for the first time since last October.

Lightly raced 4yo, trained last year by Andrew Balding; has not made a significant impact this term but her mark continues to fall, headgear is now given a go and her stable is in good form.

Dropped down weights and had been hinting at better before his convincing 7f win at Musselburgh yesterday (good; Fanzone second); has more to do under a penalty back at 1m but not out of it if making a quick return.

Form & Verdict
Went close at Redcar (6f, soft) in October on last turf appearance; stays 7f but has more to prove on firmer than good; absent since November and bottom line is that he's scored one win (August 2020) from 34 starts.

9/2 Biplane, 10/1 Spice Store, 7/1 Far From A Ruby, 4/1 Monhammer, 7/2 Thunderhill, 10/1 One Last Hug, 3/1 Audit, 50/1 Pasha Bay

Verdict

In an unconvincing bunch, the vote goes to AUDIT who has not been with Ruth Carr for long but raised his game last time out. Thunderhill is even less exposed, so he may prove the danger ahead of Monhammer.[Richard Austen]
