Lightly-raced maiden. Last of 14 in handicap at this course (6f, 20/1) 4 days ago, slowly away.

Verdict

Glenmoore struggled to cope with a 6lb rise for a previous victory here last time out and a drop back in trip to 5f looks far from ideal for the four-year-old. Blastofmagic doesn't look an easy ride but he should enjoy the return to Polytrack after being beaten at odds-on at Newcastle on Tapeta in January, while Pillar has become frustrating of late. It could be worth chancing TY ROCK BRANDY, who did it well at Wolverhampton last time and looks suited by a fast 5f on the all-weather.

Verdict

GLENMOORE is clearly still on a workable mark so is taken to resume winning ways. Blastofmagic and Pillar are a couple of others to consider.

Verdict

SETTLE FOR RED was given an excellent ride by Pat Smullen in victory here three weeks ago and being drawn in stall one can allow the experienced rider to give this eight-year-old another nice tow into this contest. Six Silver Lane is never far away at this level but is vulnerable for the win once more, while New Story, who beat the latter last time out, remains on a fair mark and could have more to offer for his new connections.

Verdict

NEW STORY was ultimately well on top at the finish when landing a similar race to this over C&D when last seen in November, and though absent since, he should be a factor on return for his new yard. Catchy Lass and Carvelas are just a couple of possible dangers in what looks an open race.

Verdict

INEFFABLE showed plenty of grit when beating an in-form rival here last month and the five-year-old should be very competitive once more despite a 5lb rise. Specific Gravity isn't getting any younger but seldom runs poorly at this venue, while Trump Card ran well over an insufficient trip at this track last time and should appreciate this extra couple of furlongs. Marino Marvel had his excuses for a poor effort last time and could bounce back.

Verdict

It hasn't really clicked for NULIFE on the level yet, but he is certainly well handicapped, so he could be the answer in re-fitted blinkers. Specific Gravity, Ineffable and Marino Marvel are just a trio of potential threats.

Verdict

PRIMO UOMO was unsurprisingly quite fresh on his first outing for 10 months at this venue last time out and the six-year-old should handle the step up to 6f without too many issues. Third in a Listed race last season behind the classy Washington DC, he is also a former course winner and is rated 10lb better than Togoville, who should ensure that a generous pace is set. Geological can claim the last of the major prize money in third.

Verdict

PRIMO UOMO shaped as if better for the run when third in a 5f handicap here 7 days ago and he gets the nod to come out on top on these terms. Togoville and Geological are next best in that order.

Sixth of 7 in claimer at this course (6f, 25/1) 7 days ago. Hard to fancy.

Verdict

MR ORMSBY returned to form when scoring over C&D last Friday and is expected to remain competitive following an 8lb rise. He was going away at the finish last time and the return of a 7lb claimer in the saddle helps offset his hike in the ratings. Delegating has gone up 3lb for finishing a neck second here in January but has strong place claims, likewise Mokhalad, who landed minor money off 1lb lower over track and trip latest.

Verdict

MR ORMSBY gained compensation for an unlucky defeat when scoring over C&D last week and he looks sure to give another good account despite an inflated mark. Arbourfield was runner-up behind the selection and feared again, ahead of Flawlessly.
