Modest filly. Winner at Thirsk in July. 25/1, last of 9 in seller at Wolverhampton (7.2f) 13 days ago. Claims on form during the summer, but forecast conditions here pose a question.

Verdict

Improvising was knocking on the door in the summer but has disappointed the last twice, including at Nottingham on Wednesday, and preference is for SHESCOMINGHOME. She enjoyed the synthetics underneath her when placing at Wolverhampton last time and soft ground here could suit, while there should be more to come after only two starts. Elieden and Cognac Blue are others with solid claims stepping up in trip.

Verdict

Only a handful are appealing at the weights and SHESCOMINGHOME, who left her debut effort behind when third in an AW minor event a fortnight ago, may well be the answer. Improvising boasts the most solid form, but she was well held at Nottingham on Wednesday, while conditions are a worry where Go Annie Go is concerned. Consequently, Elieden is nominated as the main danger.

Verdict

Urban Highway was somewhat disappointing when sent off favourite at Pontefract, only managing a third-placed finish behind a shock 100/1 winner. It could be best to side with Richard Fahey's ABSOLUTE DREAM, who himself was a beaten favourite last time, but has some smart form from earlier in the season when chasing home the likes of Dark Vision and Persian Moon. Roulston Scar rates the pick of the Kevin Ryan duo, while Gylo is potentially the most intriguing of the newcomers on show.

Verdict

Given that those with experience do not set a particularly high standard, newcomers GALLEY GOLD and Gylo are both appealing. It'll be interesting to see what the market has to say but, as things stand, preference is for Galley Gold, who is a half-sister to some 2-y-o winners. Roulston Scar merits respect and, though he's starting to look rather exposed, Absolute Dream also needs considering.

Lightly-raced maiden. 4/1, creditable sixth of 10 in handicap at Lingfield (15.8f, AW) 15 days ago, slowly away. Needs to raise his game.

Verdict

Andrew Balding's Soldier To Follow was an easy winner over 1m4f at Hamilton last time and a 4lb rise may be lenient if proving just as effective up in trip. Grecian Spirit is a consistent performer who could easily stay this far following wind surgery, while Ice Galley was handed a 6lb rise for a C&D victory last month which doesn't completely rule him out of the equation. However, ICARIO has made a bright start for Stef Keniry since switching from Gordon Elliott, and looks set for a big run here off the same mark as when only beaten a neck at Catterick last time.

Verdict

SOLDIER TO FOLLOW improved a notch when opening his account at Hamilton and, with conditions no problem and this stiffer test unlikely to be an issue, he is taken to defy a 4 lb rise. Icario is also proven on an easy surface and is feared most ahead of Grecian Spirit, who still possesses some potential and will be a threat if handling conditions.

Verdict

Ride The Monkey scored here over 7f on debut last month and is respected tackling an extra furlong now. However, preference is for FOX LEICESTER, who saw the penny drop in the latter stages at Ascot, running on for third, and the 310,000-euro Dark Angel colt can produce a much more professional performance this time. Any strong market vibes for John Gosden's Dubawi newcomer Lord North should be noted, while Barys was a beaten favourite at Chelmsford last time but still possesses plenty of potential and a step up to a mile is interesting.

Verdict

It may well be a case of third time lucky for FOX LEICESTER, who left his debut run well behind when a strong-finishing third over 7f at Ascot. This step up in trip promises to help unlock further improvement and he gets the nod ahead of Barys and Arctic Fox. Ride The Monkey, who made a winning start here last month, and likely-looking newcomer Lord North are others to consider.

Verdict

POLYPHONY benefited from the step up to 7f when winning at the fifth time of asking at Musselburgh last month and a 4lb rise seems fair for John Mackie's filly. Mischief Managed has been a model of consistency without getting his head in front and another solid effort is expected, while The Groove has gone close on his last couple of outings and has the assistance of Cieren Fallon's 7lb claim.

Verdict

POLYPHONY did well to overcome traffic problems when getting off the mark at Musselburgh last month. She still has low mileage and a 4 lb rise may not be enough to prevent her from striking again. Consistent duo The Groove and Mischief Managed rate the main dangers, while Benjamin Thomas, Grinty and Muirsheen Durkin are all in with an each-way shout.

Good second of 16 in handicap at Thirsk (6f, good, 13/2), faring best of those ridden prominently. Off 94 days. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.

Verdict

DESERT DREAM can be a bit unpredictable but a repeat of the effort which saw him hit the crossbar at Ayr last month should be good enough to win this contest. Naples Bay doesn't appear to relish the all-weather but his turf form suggests that he could pick up some prize money today. Slipstream was only caught on the line in a Leicester seller on Tuesday and he can make his mark back in handicap company.

Verdict

YOUNG JOHN posted much his best effort for his current yard when runner-up at Leicester recently and the 5-y-o makes plenty of appeal off the same mark here. Slipstream went close in a seller earlier in the week and he has to be feared, along with Angel Palanas, successful off a higher mark on the AW in January and for whom conditions won't pose a problem.
