Verdict

The likes of Darkolva, Medal Of Honour and Port Lions can all be expected to go well but they have had plenty of chances and can be taken on with a less exposed rival. CLEBOURNE was well supported on his debut here last month and that effort suggested that he should improve for this step up in trip. Subjudice is a well-bred newcomer who merits a market inspection.

Verdict

PORT LIONS wasn't really progressing when last seen in the summer, but the return to 7f will suit switched to polytrack and he should be up to winning maiden such as this. Medal of Honour is the obvious form threat, though Glow In The Dark is a likely newcomer.

Verdict

GOODNITE IRINA was only denied by a nose over C&D last month and she can provide her supporters with some valuable compensation this evening, despite a 3lb rise in the ratings. Dinky Inty has to shoulder top weight but she was only beaten a length here recently and this race lacks strength in depth. Others to consider are Getaway Queen, Sally Gap and Tom Dooley.

Verdict

DINKY INTY bounced back to form on her return to the polytrack last month, and she is expected to be in the shake-up again. Goodnite Irina remains one to be interested in from this sort of mark, while Secret Memories is potentially well treated if she's able to get back to her best.

Verdict

YOU GOTTA MOVE has shown promise in both of his starts for this yard and the drop back in trip should suit based on his performance over 1m last time out. Free To Roam has not won in 2017 but she has gone close on multiple occasions and another good run can be expected from her. Any market support for Fashionable Man on his handicap debut would have to be noted.

Verdict

FREE TO ROAM is going the right way again, and is taken to get back to winning ways. You Gotta Move and Lady Rosebud head the list of dangers.

Verdict

SNOW PATCH improved with every start in maiden company and she can be expected to take another step forward on her handicap debut this evening. An opening mark of 67 is not overly generous but it is workable, especially in a weak race such as this. Ar Saoirse appears to be the main danger based on an encouraging performance here last time out, while Piper Bomb has a solid each-way chance.

Verdict

AR SAOIRSE wasn't beaten far on his handicap debut here 6 weeks ago and this extra 1f might be in his favour. Piper Bomb and Snow Patch head the dangers.
