T: Jonathan Portman

Placed on Lingfield AW last month, after a break, and didn't run badly at Kempton a fortnight ago; may not have much margin for error off her 5lb higher turf mark but capable apprentice Olivia Tubb (who won on her last summer) claims 5lb today; might be the answer.

Form & Verdict

Best handicap form has been since gelded, with two seconds on good to firm at Lingfield either side of his AW win at Chelmsford; all three were over this trip; edging up the weights but needs plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Modest form and some minor honours for Richard Hannon; not so good recently at Windsor (1m, good to firm) on debut for new yard but that was her first run since January, so it may have done her good; chance on peak form.

Inconsistent nine-race maiden; best effort this year came over 6f at Salisbury three starts back and he's already 9lb lower today; tried 5f on latest; now hooded first time.

Made most to win a 7f handicap at Wolverhampton (AW) in March; similar form on all starts since, including 6f on good to firm, and it looks like she will be on the premises if the first-time headgear has no adverse effect.

Knuckled down to win a similar event here (7f) in early February; made the frame last time, despite his claiming rider dropping the reins; Rossa Ryan is a positive jockey booking; stamina reserves unproven at 1m but still looks shortlist material.
