Thrice-raced maiden. Last of 5 in minor event at Chelmsford City (5f, 66/1) 19 days ago. Makes handicap debut. 6 lb "wrong" at the weights, however.

Verdict

Annie Salts is of interest here following a break and wind surgery and the Zebedee mare, who is back at her last winning mark, has the assistance of the champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa here. The veteran Swendab has some good back form over the track and trip and can contend if leaving his latest efforts since the turn of the year behind him. However, the preference is for Ruth Carr's FUEL INJECTION, who could have more to come following his nose victory at Newcastle earlier this month.

Verdict

A leap of faith is required in supporting EQUALLY FAST, but he is potentially thrown-in from a career-low mark, and did well to finish as close as he did on yard debut at Kempton 2 weeks ago (first run for 8 months). He may well come on for that and could well be worth chancing. Recent C&D winner Eternalist, King Crimson and Annie Salts are others to consider.

Once-raced maiden. Hooded, fourth of 5 in minor event (50/1) at Southwell (5f) on debut 9 days ago. Likely longer-term project.

Verdict

GLOBAL ACADEMY can be forgiven his failure last time and the return to 5f should be just what Gay Kelleway's three-year-old needs to return to winning ways, having excelled over the distance when winning the two times before that 6f disappointment. Drakefell's is the only other winner in the field and the Canford Cliffs colt should be the main danger, while Tivra and Elliot The Dragon will need to improve to play a leading role.

Verdict

GLOBAL ACADEMY and Drakefell look the pair to focus on here, the former, a real speed ball, fancied to come out on top having been far from disgraced in a stronger race over further than this last time.

Verdict

BARNABY BROOK looks the one to side with here having won two starts ago at the course and has finished second here either side of that. Elisha Whittington, who was in the saddle for that triumph, is back in the plate and her 7lb claim could play a crucial role in securing success for her charge. Tha'ir is sure to be popular with Oisin Murphy aboard, while stablemate What Usain completes the shortlist.

Verdict

THA'IR needs to shrug off a lesser effort over C&D on his latest start, but he was proving consistent in handicaps previously and could be the way to go with his sights lowered. Barnaby Brook can give him most to think about.

Creditable 2 lengths fifth of 11 to Jeremy's Jet in handicap (10/1) at this course (8.6f) 22 days ago. Must improve.

Verdict

Course winner JEREMY'S JET got his neck in front last time and should have plenty more to come from just 3lb higher here. He can see off The Juggler, who returns following a break and has claims on his performances in the autumn. Cockney Boy has to be respected for Mick Appleby with Silvestre De Sousa aboard, while Spirit Of Gondree is another for the shortlist.

Verdict

THE JUGGLER has been off since the autumn, but he's a fair bit better than this class, so assuming he is fully wound up for this return, he must go very close. Jeremy's Jet overcame the run-of-the-race when scoring here 3 weeks ago and is a threat if in the same mood, with Cockney Boy another to consider.

Remains a maiden after 18 Flat runs. 20/1, very good third of 9 in handicap at this course (8.6f) 5 days ago.

Verdict

DRAGONITE and Raakid both knocked on the door last time and look to have this contest between them, with preference for the lower-rated four-year-old of Daniel Loughnane's who can break his duck on the back of a much improved performance following a break last time. New Abbey Angel is rarely far away and is respected, while John Caesar would be no surprise winner.

Verdict

JOHN CAESAR has been shaping up quite well at this venue of late, and with Outlaw Torn expected to make this a reasonable test, he is taken to pick these off late. The aforementioned front runner is a danger, while Dragonite arrives on the back of a big personal best at Kempton.

Remains a maiden after 18 Flat runs. 4/1 and blinkered for first time, creditable second of 12 in handicap at Southwell (12.1f) 37 days ago. Cheekpieces back on.

Verdict

PICTURE PAINTER was unlucky to bump into a rival in superb form at Southwell last time out and a reproduction of that effort may well suffice now back on Tapeta. French Mix did it well at big odds at Lingfield last month, though there is a suspicion that she might not be quite as effective on Tapeta. Widnes is now 0-18 but often travels well and should be thereabouts, while Oregon Gift looks best of the remainder.

Verdict

WIDNES is a long-standing maiden, but he didn't do much wrong when touched off late at Lingfield 19 days and a repeat of that may well suffice. Oregon Git represents an in-form yard and the booking of Silvestre De Sousa is a positive one, with Picture Painter another worth considering.
