Lightly-raced maiden. Excellent second of 11 in nursery (20/1) at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 8 days ago, sticking to task. Makes polytrack debut. Expected to be bang there.

Verdict

ALASKAN BAY was touched off by a head over 6f at Wolverhampton on her handicap debut and is expected to give another good account now dropping back to the minimum trip while 4lb well-in. Mother of Dragons landed minor money off this mark over 6f here last week and should be thereabouts with a repeat performance, though the main danger may be recent C&D winner Magic Pulse, who has a 5lb rise to contend with.

Verdict

ALASKAN BAY showed much-improved form to prove her opening mark is a fair one when runner-up at Wolverhampton 8 days ago and, with the drop back to the minimum trip expected to hold no fears, she can open her account. Recent C&D winner Magic Pulse rates the chief threat, ahead of Mother of Dragons.

Twice-raced maiden. Eighth of 11 in minor event (28/1) at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 19 days ago.

Verdict

RED CYMBAL made all to land a novice stakes over C&D last time and is expected to take all of the beating on the front end once again. 74-rated Archie Watson representative Arden Pearl has place claims if running to her rating, likewise Choice Encounter, who is a consistent performer from the Michael Bell stable. Both Filbert Street and Mushtaq are expected to step up on their debut performances and could also finish on the premises.

Verdict

RED CYMBAL had clearly derived plenty from his Leicester debut when scoring in good style over C&D 3 weeks ago, and he can concede weight all round with further improvement a distinct possibility. Choice Encounter and Arden Pearl are others to consider.

Verdict

BORN TO FINISH returned to winning ways when striking over this trip at Kempton last month and is expected to remain competitive in the face of a 3lb rise. Nezar chased the selection home at Kempton before landing more minor money in a 7f Lingfield claimer last time. A big run may well be on the cards once again. The pick of the remainder may be Curious Fox, who drops in grade and is only 1lb higher than when striking on turf at HQ in July.

Verdict

CAPTAIN LARS blew a C&D claimer apart a fortnight ago, and the assessor could have taken a dimmer view of that performance, so he is selected to follow up back in a handicap. Born To Finish will be finishing off to good effect and is feared, while Aleef possesses more talent than this grade often requires and the addition of a tongue tie may help him.

Verdict

Touched off a head by subsequent Goodwood Cup winner Stradivarius on his racecourse debut last year, BOWERMAN then beat a progressive sort in Ply when successful in a 1m Kempton maiden in April. Roger Varian's charge is returning from a 246-day break but is one to monitor closely in the betting on his handicap bow off a mark of 87. Chevallier steps up from 7f and has place claims along with Sibilance, who has been lightly campaigned this year.

Verdict

BOWERMAN dispatched inferior opposition with the minimum of fuss at Kempton in April, and with connections keen to make up for lost time with a winter campaign, he appeals as being the one to beat. Sibilance defends an unbeaten AW record, while Mr Bossy Boots can have his last run excused and is expected to be right there.

Career best when winning 14-runner handicap at Kempton (8f, 9/4) 54 days ago. First run for yard after leaving Henry Spiller.

Verdict

PASS THE CRISTAL appreciated the step up to a mile here last time out when landing the odds and was produced perfectly by his rider, cruising past the long-time leaders on the home straight. He looks to have scope for improvement and could have too much for fellow course and distance winner Samphire Coast. Glenn Coco was unlucky not to claim successive wins at Kempton last time out, while Wicker is another to note from a good draw.

Verdict

WICKER left her maiden form behind after 5 months off when runner-up on her handicap debut at Kempton last time, doing much the best of those held up, and she's taken to go one place better. Fire Diamond is the obvious threat as he bids for the hat-trick, with Glenn Coco best of the others.

Verdict

HUDDERSFILLY TOWN was quietly backed when getting off the mark here three weeks ago for Ivan Furtado and could have further scope for progress over this 10 furlong trip. A 6lb rise doesn't look too harsh, with another confident ride by Philip Makin expected to be enough to double up. Chaucer's Tale did it well at Newcastle last time out but has a point to prove on Polytrack, while Venetian Proposal could be good enough for third.

Verdict

CHAUCER'S TALE showed improved form when making all under this rider at Newcastle last week and has obvious claims off the same mark. Huddersfilly Town responded well to this headgear when opening her account over C&D 3 weeks ago and is feared most ahead of Arcadian Sea.

Remains a maiden after 20 Flat runs. 66/1, ninth of 12 in handicap at this C&D 21 days ago. Yet to produce any worthwhile form.

Verdict

Richard Guest has had a profitable season on the all-weather and HEDIDDODINTHE could build on his career best second here last time out. He probably bumped into one that was ahead of his mark here three weeks ago, and could claim compensation. Victoriously arrives on a hat-trick for Andi Brown and deserves respect back from a 225 day absence, while it will be interesting to see if first-time cheekpieces help to improve the fortunes of Zoffany Bay.

Verdict

HEDIDDODINTHE showed much improved form on just his second handicap start when runner-up over C&D last month, and he seems sure to go well again after just a small rise in the weights. Wootyhoot would come into the equation if bouncing back to form, while Fintech is worth a market check on his stable debut.
