Form & Verdict

Two wins at Lingfield (2m6f/2m7f+) at the end of last year and retains plenty of ability; 3m1f+ found him out here latest but not sure this trip on good ground will prove ideal either; four course wins, however.

J: Freddie Gordon

T: Chris Gordon

Finished remote on reappearance but the situation was accepted a long way out and he comes into it on previous form here, winning two of three previous course starts (2m6f, soft/2m7f, good to soft); only just above his latest winning mark in April (2m3f, good); likely contender.

Took his British record to 2-26 (all in the last year) when scrambling home at Wincanton last month; 3lb rise of no real concern but this looks a much stronger event; good ground seems ideal, at least.

Not the easiest to predict (to put it mildly) but had one of his good days when runner-up over 2m7f here last month (under Gearoid Harney); whether he'll repeat it is another matter and stamina for this far isn't entirely copperbottomed.

Finally off the mark when cruising home ahead of The Cathal Don here in February but up to her old tricks when plucking defeat from the jaws of victory at Taunton next time; blinkers now given a whirl in an effort to make her concentrate; major claims if they work.

Doyannie

10st 2lb

J: Rex Dingle

T: Anthony Honeyball

Everything fell into place for Plumpton win (2m1f, good) in February but she's not the easiest to win with and her finishing effort was weak there last time (2m3f); the blinkers tried then are soon discarded and the likelihood of a strong pace up front should benefit her; being 12lb out of the handicap makes life difficult.

Seemed to have quite a bit left in the tank when opening account under confident Rex Dingle ride at Plumpton (2m1f, good) last month, her third start for Anthony Honeyball; 9lb higher here but should cope if the ground softens; must be considered in current form.

Form & Verdict

No match for Doyannie here in February (2m1f) but it still marked an encouraging return to some form on his debut for Richard Bandey; 12lb better off with that rival and can be fancied if longer trip suits as well.

Form & Verdict

Wasn't beaten out of sight behind Doyannie here in February when she was a long way out of the handicap, as she is today; still looking at cheekpieces giving her a major boost if she's to figure.
