Took advantage of falling handicap mark when opening her account here in December. Not so good last time but so surprise to see her bounce back to winning ways back up in trip.

Took advantage of falling handicap mark when opening her account here in December. Not so good last time but so surprise to see her bounce back to winning ways back up in trip.

Verdict

Miss Oscarose was not disgraced at Leicester two starts ago but failed to fire when sent off favourite at Huntingdon last time. She has also struggled to see out her races when upped to this sort of trip in the past so FLUGZEUG gets the vote. The grey has hardly set the world alight in recent starts over hurdles and fences of late, but three of his four career wins have come at this track and he could not have been found a weaker race to contest.

Verdict

A tricky match between previous course winners with FLUGZEUG taken to come out on top.

Poor maiden on the Flat though hinted at promise sent hurdling here last month.

Verdict

MOST CELEBRATED won as he pleased at Wetherby in January and has held his form well since, finding just one too good on his most recent pair of starts at Newbury. A similar effort here could see him back in the winner's enclosure, possibly at the chief expense of East Indies, who opened his account at this track and has kept decent company since. Masterson has picked up a pair of staying victories at Chelmsford since his first forays over timber and completes the shortlist.

Verdict

MOST CELEBRATED continues in fine heart and can notch up another success on the back of his excellent run at Newbury. East Indies is the obvious one for the forecast.

Second win over C&D this season on Sunday, well ridden and taking advantage of some wayward jumping from the runner-up. 7 lb amateur up and big claims if going for the follow up.

Verdict

All four of these runners tried to force the pace, with varying degrees of success, on their recent starts so tactics could play a big part in the outcome here. PERFECT TIMING has to contend with an 11lb rise after dotting up at Huntingdon last time but he may just be the in-form horse to side with. Little Windmill won here yesterday and a 7lb penalty may not be enough to prevent another bold bid if turned out again quickly, while The Mumper and Lemon's Gent both have some recent form to give them a chance.

Verdict

PERFECT TIMING is far from reliable but won in good style when last seen and is still well treated under his revised mark if returning in the same mood. The Mumper ran well in a Ffos Las seller last time and is respected.

Dual hurdles winner, including at this track, but continues out of sorts. On a good mark for when it does all come together again. Visor tried.

Verdict

RYEOLLIEAN didn't look the easiest conveyance when successful at Huntingdon last time, showing a tendency to race lazily, but he is only up 3lb for that win and could follow up here. Holbrook Park is no stranger to this track having finished second here last time, while Ding Ding showed a willing attitude when scoring here two starts ago but was heavily beaten at Fontwell last time. The selection's stablemate Royal Battalion is back down to his last winning mark and cannot be underestimated either.

Verdict

HOLBROOK PARK deserves another win for his run of consistency and could gain it here. Ryeolliean is the obvious danger if he stays up in trip.

C&D winner on a memorable day for yard last month but never been the most consistent and struggled at Southwell after 7 lb rise next time. Blinkers replace cheekpieces.

Verdict

Barring his last effort at Newbury, Pearls Legend has been competitive in some decent races this season and now runs off a very attractive mark, but this could be a chance for LOU VERT to atone for a recent fall. Paul Nicholls' charge was still going well when coming to grief at Wincanton last time and this looks an ideal opportunity to make amends. Gores Island sports a first-time visor in a bid to get him back to his competitive form from earlier in the year and has a chance if it works.

Verdict

LOU VERT could well have won with a clear round at Wincanton a fortnight ago and can make amends here with a clear round. Pearls Legend is lurking on a very dangerous mark if he can find his best form again.

No form in this sphere for David Bridgwater and needs massive improvement now handicapping for new trainer. Engaged 5.30 here Sunday.

Verdict

Bolister has to be respected off just 1lb higher than when hitting the crossbar here last time, while fellow Gary Moore inmate Mount Shamshan has been running well in plating company of late. Sir Hubert is not without claims after a fair effort in fourth here last time, but preference is for INTIFADAH, who has improved with each run for Tom Symonds since leaving Ireland and could be coming to the boil at the right time.

Verdict

BOLISTER remains with unfinished business and the market support for him the last twice suggests a bigger performance is expected. It could be coming here. Cor Wot An Apple and Sir Hubert have place claims at the very least.

Won at Lingfield for Mark Hoad at the start of the year but struggled for another new yard there next time. Needs to bounce back.

Verdict

YUKON DELTA certainly wasn't finished with when unseating his rider two out over C&D last time and he could make amends for that mishap here. Song Of The Night was a shade disappointing at Wetherby last time but his previous form at Taunton was much more encouraging, while Mad Dab steps into handicap company for the first time here and could be a useful prospect off his current mark. Up Four It is not a certain stayer, but has a chance if he does see this out.

Verdict

SONG OF THE NIGHT looks a winner in waiting after another promising effort at Wetherby and can open his account here. Yukon Delta might be the one for the forecast.
