One win from 30 Flat runs. Sixth of 7 in handicap at Southwell (12.1f, 40/1) 17 days ago, slowly away. Significantly down in trip. Risky proposition at present.

Verdict

First Experience was denied a clear run when weaving her way through the field over this course and distance last time out and deserves respect now dropping in class, while Ramblow won at lofty odds latest and warrants respect if the penny has indeed now dropped. It could be worth chancing VIOLET'S LAD, who looks set to appreciate this step up in distance and is well drawn under talented 3lb claimer Callum Shepherd.

Verdict

DE LITTLE ENGINE had things go against him at Chelmsford last week and is worth another chance having looked unlucky at Kempton the time before. No Approval is also worth another chance and is next best ahead of Showdance Kid.

Course winner. Four wins from 13 runs last year. 9/2, creditable third of 8 in handicap at this course (5f, AW) 24 days ago, caught further back than ideal. Expected to be bang there.

Verdict

MADRINHO relished a return to sprinting when third on stable bow for Tony Carroll at Wolverhampton last time out, despite running into traffic problems, and could have more to offer for these new connections. A mark of 67 looks more than fair and he can account for Strategic Heights, who has gone up 3lb for ending an 18-race losing streak last time, and Pulsating, who continues to go well in defeat but might want an extra furlong to be seen at his best.

Verdict

KINGLAMI looked on the way back here last time having attracted support, nearest at the finish after being caught further back than ideal, and is one to be interested in again. Madrinho went close on debut for this yard at Wolverhampton and is next best ahead of Strategic Heights.

Verdict

IT MUST BE FAITH did it well in an amateur riders' event at Chelmsford eight days ago and a 6lb rise might not be enough to prevent the follow up, this time under leading all-weather rider Luke Morris. Mossgo drops in class and ran better than his seventh-placed finish suggested over this course and distance last time, while Porto Ferro and Mighty Zip both shaped last time as though their winning turns were near and warrant respect.

Verdict

PORTO FERRO ran well again at Kempton last time and is threatening to come good. It Must Be Faith isn't consistent but won well at Chelmsford last week and will rightfully have his supporters under a penalty.

Verdict

Ron Harris does well with his sprinters and EQUALLY FAST could take advantage of a lowly mark here. The six-year-old has been dropped 2lb since finishing a good fifth at Kempton on his stable bow 16 days ago and should have come on significantly for that first outing in eight months. Evening Starlight ran well on this surface last time but has a 178-day absence to overcome, while Roy's Legacy has won two of his last three and shouldn't be far away.

Verdict

ROY'S LEGACY is going through a good spell and could notch up another win under Charlie Bennett. Equally Fast (well backed when a non runner at Wolverhampton on Thursday) and Kyllukey are respected.

Verdict

GOLDEN BIRTHDAY has a very attractive profile, winning three from three on the Flat and five from 14 under NH rules. There looks to be a lot more to come from Harry's inmate, particularly in this code, and he gets the vote to defy a 147-day absence. Royal Reserve was a 2m course winner in December and has placed on his last three appearances. He looks sure to be in the shake-up again while Noble Gift, another proven here, merits consideration on his return from a break.

Verdict

GOLDEN BIRTHDAY enjoyed a fantastic 2017 and can maintain his unbeaten record on the Flat with a successful return. Royal Reserve should get his head in front again before long, while Noble Gift is a player on his return back under Jim Crowley.

Once-raced maiden. Third of 6 in maiden at this course (10f, AW, 5/1) on debut 25 days ago, running on late. May well do better.

Verdict

Natch continues to run well without winning and connections are hoping that first-time cheekpieces will do the trick, while Mercer's Troop faces no easy task under a penalty but he did show a likeable attitude when winning at Kempton. Whispering Sands and Artarmonalso also hold claims but a chance is taken on AFRICAN JAZZ. This newcomer is certainly bred to have plenty of ability, being a half-brother to high-class winners Usherette and Show Day, and Charlie Appleby is more than capable of readying one first time out.

Verdict

ARTARMON left his debut well behind when third at Nottingham in November and looks sure to progress again over this longer trip on return. African Jazz looks a likely type on debut and may emerge as the biggest threat.

Thrice-raced maiden. 14/1, seventh of 8 in minor event at this course (10f, AW) 63 days ago. Has been gelded and heads into handicaps with some untapped potential.

Verdict

Recent Southwell scorer Illusional warrants plenty of respect while Holy Tiber is worth a market check at least ahead of her first outing since October. Carp Kid is a past C&D scorer and has been knocking on the door recently, but preference is for Sir Mark Prescott's handicap debutant HARMONICA. The Pivotal filly shaped with plenty of promise in three starts last year and looks potentially a fair bit better than this opening mark of 73. She gets in off a nice weight after Gavin Ashton's claim.

Verdict

CARP KID shaped really well on first outing for his new yard when third at Wolverhampton last month, and a similar display can see him regain the winning thread. Illusional is well related so certainly has the potential to rate higher still, while Harmonic is in good hands and another to consider.
