A comfortable winner on his latest outing, ONWARD ROUTE is taken to score again under a 6lb penalty. Rebecca Menzies' charge should be suited by the step up from 2m, which could spark further improvement as he seeks to repel the likely challenge of Presentandcounting, who is better known for his exploits over fences. Arabescato brings a fair level of ability from the Flat and he could prove to be dangerous if taking to the switch in codes.
Prediction : 1st Onward Route 2nd Presentandcounting 3rd Arabescato

Miss Wachit sprung a surprise when successful at odds of 50-1 on her handicap debut earlier this month, where she was said to have benefitted from first-time blinkers (retained). The six-year-old is likely to remain competitive from a 6lb higher mark, but preference is for GUIDEDBYTHESCIENCE, who was third at Huntingdon on her latest outing and she can regain the winning thread. Bright Sunbird might not be far away either.
Prediction : 1st Guidedbythescience 2nd Miss Wachit 3rd Bright Sunbird

DORRELLS PIERJI has found a new lease of life since transferring to Dan Skelton's yard last month, landing back-to-back successes with consummate ease. A 7lb rise for the latest of those wins makes life harder but he remains well treated on previous form, so is taken to land his hat-trick. Recent C&D scorer Eglantine Du Seuil is feared most, while Hillview isn't discounted, despite being 9lb out of handicap.
Prediction : 1st Dorrells Pierji 2nd Eglantine Du Seuil 3rd Hillview

BROKEN QUEST was only just denied a fourth consecutive win at Perth earlier this month, but was not disgraced finishing half a length behind Minella Trump in that contest. Sizing Cusimano can be feared having kept on to win in emphatic style by 27 lengths at Newton Abbot last month, while Destrier also enters calculations stepping significantly up in trip.
Prediction : 1st Broken Quest 2nd Sizing Cusimano 3rd Destrier

LERMOOS LEGEND has been progressive of late, and justified market support when scoring by six and a half lengths on his latest outing at Cartmel over 2m1f. He has gone up 9lb for that win, but it is unlikely that he has found his ceiling yet. Eritage is 5lb above his last winning mark, but was leading when he came to grief at the final flight on his most recent outing, while Texard has shown little in handicaps to date but remains unexposed in the UK.
Prediction : 1st Lermoos Legend 2nd Eritage 3rd Texard

LEYLAK won well at Warwick last month and it would be no surprise to see Dan Skelton's five-year-old follow up that smooth novice win with victory off what appears a workable mark. Gaulois didn't look entirely straightforward despite breaking his duck at Newton Abbot last time and fellow recent scorers Accidental Rebel and Duke Of Luckley appear to have more scope for progression.
Prediction : 1st Leylak 2nd Accidental Rebel 3rd Duke Of Luckley

The strapping BOSTON JOE has come good with successive wins and remains one to be interested in despite a 5lb rise, particularly as this relatively galloping track is likely to be more suitable than the tight turns he hand to contend with at Stratford last time. Ten Past Midnight showed a liking for this course when winning here in the autumn and has to be considered after a career-best win at Southwell last time, albeit off a 7lb lower mark. The winless Lonimoss Bareliere has been knocking on the door with two narrow recent defeats and should remain competitive.
Prediction : 1st Boston Joe 2nd Ten Past Midnight 3rd Lonimoss Bareliere
