HUL AH BAH LOO has been running consistently well, mainly at this venue, and would have finished closer over C&D last time but for trouble in running. He lines up off the same mark and makes slightly more appeal than Mabre, who won that race in which Hul Ah Bah Loo was unlucky and very nearly followed up at Southwell. Fat Gladiator and Hiromichi may both improve on their comeback efforts.
Prediction : 1st Hul Ah Bah Loo 2nd Mabre 3rd Fat Gladiator

CATCH MY BREATH only found subsequent winner Tom Tulliver too good in a similar contest at Southwell and, with three C&D victories to his name, he makes plenty of appeal. Chloellie arrives following a similar effort here, getting within three-parts of a length of springing a surprise, and she must enter calculations. Non Mollare, who is the joint top-rated performer with Royal Debut, also merits shortlist inclusion.
Prediction : 1st Catch My Breath 2nd Chloellie 3rd Non Mollare

David's Gift responded positively to the application of blinkers (worn again) when a fast-finishing second over 6f at Southwell and she demands respect stepping back up in distance, but EIGHT MILE is taken to notch a deserved win. He has been knocking on the door, both over this trip and over 6f at Wolverhampton last time, and today could be his day with Benoit De La Sayette back on board. Regal Glory is another to note.
Prediction : 1st Eight Mile 2nd Davids Gift 3rd Regal Glory

Rechercher could improve now tried in cheekpieces on debut for a new yard, while Flash Bardot just about sets the standard on the official ratings and proved her stamina with a solid third over this trip at Chelmsford. However, preference is for ERMESINDE, who won with a bit in hand on her introduction over C&D last month. She showed signs of temperament that day but it's likely she'll be a lot calmer with the experience behind her.
Prediction : 1st Ermesinde 2nd Rechercher 3rd Flash Bardot

SMART BOYO has held his form under both codes of racing and, assuming he adapts to the track layout and surface on his debut at this circuit, he is hard to resist. Mr Rumbalicious would be giving weight away if this were a handicap and has to be feared on these terms, while Bellshill Beauty reverts to the Flat after a poor effort over timber at Hereford and might do better now tried in cheekpieces.
Prediction : 1st Smart Boyo 2nd Mr Rumbalicious 3rd Bellshill Beauty

It's possible a recent switch in stables will have perked up UMMSUQUAIM and she looks worth chancing in an ordinary classified stakes. This is also her first attempt in a race of this nature and having won under Mohammed Tabti over C&D back in November, there are solid foundations to expect a bold effort. Afternoon Tea has fewer miles on the clock and rates as the chief danger to the selection, although Savoy Brown and Persian Wolf are also feared.
Prediction : 1st Ummsuquaim 2nd Afternoon Tea 3rd Savoy Brown

Caracristi kept on strongly to lead close home over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton but although she's respected back up in trip, COME TO PASS edges the vote. Tony Carroll's charge returned to form when finishing third over C&D last time out and having completed a quickfire track-and-trip double towards the end of 2022, a third career success might be in the offing. Seattle King has become too well treated to ignore and the gelded son of Kingman shouldn't be underestimated.
Prediction : 1st Come To Pass 2nd Caracristi 3rd Seattle King
