did precious little wrong last time out at Ascot and can confirm her wellbeing with another positive display in this tightly-knit handicap. In a strongly run affair at the Berkshire venue, Henry Candy’s charge just couldn’t quite cope with the impressive winner Light and Shade in the latter stages, but as she was the only one to put up any kind of resistance, her performance can be marked up. Moreover, all her best form previously had taken place on a sound surface so a return to such a terrain should enable the daughter of Kodiac to run at maximum capacity.

has been a shade unfortunate on his two previous visits but looks to have bright prospects of making it third time lucky hailing from a stable in tremendous form during the autumn period. Charlie Longsdon’s charge was in the process of running a big race of his first taste of the Lincolnshire venue when falling with every chance at the second last and then had the misfortune to bump into the enigmatic Less Time on one of his going days in a handicap chase midway through last season. Although he hasn’t run since June, the son of Flemenfirth has often gone well fresh in the past and he should make a bold bid to see it out from the front.

has shaped as though a mile has stretched his stamina to the limit on his two starts this season, so he’s worth a small interest to see whether the drop back in trip experiment comes up trumps. On both occasions, Jamie Osbourne’s inmate has travelled up well until failing to get home, but as those two efforts have been up against well-bred Godolphin polytrack performers who have seen out the trip really strongly, the son of Iffraaj should be afforded the benefit of the doubt. Either way, he has enough quality to make his presence felt in a race of this nature and makes plenty of appeal for those that enjoy a bit of each-way burglary.
