Remains a maiden after 32 Flat runs. 22¾ lengths twelfth of 13 to Lukoutoldmakezebak in handicap at this course (8f, 80/1) 7 days ago. Hood back on, tongue strap back on, cheekpieces back on.

Verdict

DANDY BIRD stayed on well late on to strike over C&D last time out and is expected to remain competitive following a 3lb rise. Lukoutoldmakezebak is penalised for his one-mile victory here last week and is expected to be finishing strongly in the closing stages though, over this shorter trip, the main danger may be Be Bold (engaged to run at Chelmsford yesterday), who landed minor money off this mark on Tapeta at Wolverhampton recently.

Verdict

DANDY BIRD showed some improvement to get off the mark over C&D 4 weeks ago and remains unexposed at this trip. Lukoutoldmakezebak looked better than ever when winning here last week, while Captain Bob can't be discounted on his old form.

Verdict

Snaffled went close at Lingfield on Wednesday and would have obvious claims if taking his chance, though narrow preference is for WAZIN, who is expected to step up on the form he showed in three novice starts now moving into handicap company and is fitted with a first-time visor. Elite Shadow took a step in the right direction when second over this trip at Kempton earlier this month and is another capable of playing a minor role.

Verdict

WAZIN hasn't progressed since a promising debut but it would come as no surprise if she got back on track now handicapping in first-time headgear. Snaffled is feared most despite failing to land the odds at Lingfield on Wednesday.

Verdict

HAMISH MCGONAGAIN finished well in the closing stages when runner-up over C&D last time and is expected to defy a 1lb rise to go one better. Run With Pride has landed minor money off 1lb lower the last twice and is capable of picking up some more place money on these terms. The main danger to the selection, however, may be Economic Crisis, who struck on turf off 2lb lower in October and is entitled to strip fitter for her course spin last month.

Verdict

BIG LACHIE looks on the way back again, shaping much better than the bare result here last time when stopped in his tracks while staying on late. He's down another 2 lb and can reward his supporters. Spirit of Zebedee was another not seen to best effect in that race and could strike again soon. Hamish McGonagain and Brockholes are also respected.

C&D winner. Winner here in February. 7/2, eighth of 9 in handicap at Lingfield (7f, AW) 2 days ago.

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien can make yet another successful raid with BACHELOR and the Holy Roman Emperor gelding can follow up his Kempton victory with another win here. John Gosden's Ode To Autumn impressed when getting off the mark over course and distance last time and must be feared, while Chingachgook represents the best northern challenger.

Verdict

SHERIFF was impressive when making a winning handicap debut at Kempton and is worth another chance having probably not handled the surface at Southwell since. Ode To Autumn landed the odds in good style in this headgear over C&D last month and is feared most.

Verdict

Jim Goldie is 3-8 in the last fortnight with his runners at the time of writing and ORIENTAL LILLY can continue the winning thread after two successive victories here in recent weeks. The latest of those triumphs can probably be upgraded given that she was blocked off at crucial stage, and a further 5lb rise doesn't look too harsh. Sandra's Secret was a three-time winner last season and deserves respect despite a 129 day absence, while Impart is consistent and should run another honest race.

Verdict

ORIENTAL LILLY arrives in pursuit of a course hat-trick, and with several of these returning from an absence, she is very much the percentage call. Duke Cosimo is also fit and in form, while Sandra's Secret can boast a good AW record but could be vulnerable late over 6f.

Nathaniel filly. Dam, winner up to 1½m (2-y-o 1m winner), half-sister to useful winner up to 1m Captain Cullen.

Verdict

John Gosden is 16-41 here since the Tapeta track opened and the promising CHLORIS looks poised to run a big race for the master handler. The three-year-old has improved on each of her first two starts, only finishing three lengths behind a smart David Simcock filly who was entered in the 1000 Guineas after the contest. Evince was well backed here on debut when third last month and could go close, while Lumi is a half-sister to four winners and she looks suited by this step up in distance.

Verdict

EVINCE failed to justify support on debut over 7f at this venue last month, but she will know a lot more this time, and is expected to take a big jump forward over 1m. Chloris should have more to offer too, while market support for a newcomer, particularly Imperial Act, would look significant.
