Verdict

Grams And Ounces won this off 3lb higher last year and the course and distance winner shouldn't be far away at the business end, while New Street should appreciate this slightly stiffer test after looking one-paced at Lingfield last time out. The most likely winner looks to be LET'S SWAY, who has been running very well over hurdles of late and has been found a nice opening to score back on the Flat for the first time in 357 days.

Verdict

LET'S SWAY didn't show much on the Flat for both previous yards, but she appears to have been given a new lease of life for the switch to hurdling of late and from a basement mark, she could be worth chancing to translate that back on the level. Last year's 1-2 Grams And Ounces and Filament of Gold can get in the mix.

3/1, career best when winning 3-runner handicap at L'ancresse (12f, good to firm) 40 days ago, but that form amounts to very little.

Verdict

GENERAL BROOK won readily when reverting to turf at Lingfield last time out and a 4lb rise in the weights seems fair. The eight-year-old can hardly be described as unexposed, but a mark of 53 looks within his reach and he can account for Howardian Hills. He performed much better last time but is winless since July last year, while Travis Bickle is nicely drawn in stall one but still needs to step up.

Verdict

GENERAL BROOK and Howardian Hills are the only pair with any recent form to their names, so they're taken to fight this out, with the former, who is actually thriving at present, taken to come out on top under a positive ride. Travis Bickle is the pick of the others.

Thrice-raced maiden. Third of 9 in minor event at this course (5.7f, good, 9/2) 15 days ago, doing too much too soon. Open to improvement.

Verdict

Queen Of Desire ran well for a long way here last time out and is noted, while L'Age D'Or has a pedigree which suggests she can win races but raced far too freely over a furlong further on Polytrack when last seen in March. Preference, though, goes to BE BE KING as he has been contesting stronger races recently and this represents an easier assignment.

Verdict

QUEEN OF DESIRE hasn't improved much as yet, but she's still lightly raced, and may well be able to progress past Be Be King, who sets the standard.

Once-raced maiden. Eleventh of 12 in minor event (50/1) at Leicester (5f, good to firm) on debut 26 days ago.

Once-raced maiden. Eleventh of 12 in minor event (50/1) at Leicester (5f, good to firm) on debut 26 days ago.

Verdict

HAPPY HARMONY is entitled to build on her debut effort where she looked green at Musselburgh and she has the assistance of champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa second time up. Swift And Sure bumped into a good horse in the shape of Natalie's Joy at Goodwood and is likely to go close here, while Mersey and newcomer Strict Tempo look best of the remainder.

Verdict

SWIFT AND SURE had no chance with a smart prospect starting out at Goodwood 3 weeks ago, but she beat the rest easily enough and she should take some stopping here. Shining offered plenty at Windsor and is feared most, though newcomer Strict Tempo ticks a few boxes.

Promising type. 9/2, won 10-runner handicap at Nottingham (8.3f, good), readily. Off 7 months. Open to progress.

Verdict

MONAADHIL is lightly raced and open to further improvement as a four-year-old having won two of his three starts last season. He went up 6lb for winning at Nottingham in November and he can prove capable of defying a 227-day absence. Isomer can bounce back after finishing last on his latest start at York, while Poet's Society has been knocking on the door recently and completes the shortlist.

Verdict

MONAADHIL looked promising last season, winning 2 of his 3 starts, and appeals as the type to make an even better 4-y-o. The likeable Poet's Society may get the run of things and is feared most.

Verdict

AQUA LIBRE made virtually all of the running on her return to action over C&D when winning by two lengths and she can handle a 5lb rise in the weights under similar tactics. Sir Jamie has been in excellent form recently and he is respected on those performances with the potential for more to come, while No Approval is capable of better having only beaten one rival home at Brighton last time.

Verdict

AQUA LIBRE posted one of her better efforts to take advantage of a much-reduced mark over C&D on return and is capable of following up with De Sousa booked. Caledonia Laird and Sir Jamie are others to consider.
