Dual AW scorer during the winter and a possible non-stayer over 1m4f last time; return to 1m2f is a plus but she faces some likely improvers back on turf.

Two wins over shorter trip, creating a favourable impression over 1m2f at Lingfield seven weeks ago; 5lb rise asks a stiffer question of her but the new trip could unlock further progress and she can't be ignored.

Form & Verdict

Improved for a switch to handicaps, going close over the extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton last month before a last-gasp success over the same C&D one week later; that form has been franked since but she's now 4lb higher and goes without Billy Loughnane's claim today; further progress required.

Densetsu

9st 5lb

J: Billy Loughnane

T: Marco Botti

No progress in three novice events but she made a promising start to her handicap career when runner-up over C&D (2-1 favourite) last Monday; ran into some trouble behind a rival who got first run in that race and she's a big player off an unchanged mark.

Densetsu

J: Tom Marquand

T: Marco Botti

Promising 7f turf debut last backend despite doing a lot wrong; didn't build on it when among the favourites next time but showed enough when upped to 1m2f at Lingfield since to suggest she can be a force now handicapping.

Form & Verdict

Good middle-distance pedigree; hinted at ability in three runs last August/September (7f twice and an extended 1m) and he is quickly upped in trip for his handicap debut; capable of better.

J: Hollie Doyle

T: Simon Dow

1-14 with his win an emphatic success at Epsom (8.5f, good) last summer; beaten just a head on his return from five months off at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) in February, but didn't back it up back there next time; a player on that penultimate run, but not quite sure what to expect.

Form & Verdict

Placed in 1m handicaps at Kempton in his two runs this year, leaving the impression that this step up in trip would be beneficial; stable going well and he still has time to do better.

Nothing special on the Flat for Andrew Balding but signed off with pretty convincing AW handicap win in March (9.4f; RPR 68); changed hands for 20,000gns last month; no surprise if he features on stable/hurdle debut.

Form & Verdict

On the up this winter, following a 1m win at Kempton with second placings over C&D and at Wolverhampton; ran into a well-handicapped opponent who got first run on him on his latest start and he is one to keep on the right side of in the short term.

Progressed in AW handicaps over the winter but his win came over 1m and although he has gone close over 1m2f he didn't find much on latest attempt at the trip in February; needs extra in first turf handicap.

Found his feet since handicapping, getting off the mark over 1m at Kempton in December and going down narrowly at Lingfield 17 days later (1m2f); should remain competitive.
