There is likely to be plenty of pace on here with several that like to go forward including Miaella, who as a result may not get her own way in her bid for the five-timer. Shamshon is respected in his bid to follow up Saturday’s Lingfield win under a 4lb penalty, but preference is for DRAKEFELL who is 2-3 over C&D and appears to have dropped to a favourable mark.
The key to this may be the race over C&D a month ago in which the first three home renew rivalry. The winner Hector’s Here appears to have responded well to the fitting of blinkers and is respected in his hat-trick bid, but the runner-up ROLLER is taken to reverse the placings. Not only did he meet trouble that day and lose a shoe, he also enjoys a 3lb pull with his old rival. The third horse Tundra is also one for the shortlist on her return here, while Clay Regazzoni looks best of the others.
A few of these have claims in an open race. PACT OF STEEL’s two wins have come over further but he has the pace for another go at 7f and represents an in-form yard on his second start since wind surgery. Trepidation and Selfless Act can prove his main threats with Fact Or Fable solid enough of the remainder.
There may be a bit more to come from the 3yo Heatherdown Matron who may find this intermediate trip to her liking, but despite a record of 2-38 preference is for THE BRITISH LION. One of his wins came over C&D and he did remarkably well to finish second at Southwell on Sunday after nearly losing his rider at the start. Billyoakes and Kit’s Allanah are others worth considering.
There ought to be more to come from Blue Moonrise, who won quite nicely over C&D on Boxing Day, but preference is for the other C&D winner, RADRIZZANI, who was slightly disappointing on her second start but appears to have stronger form. Global Response may benefit from today’s drop in trip and is next on the list.

Tomorrowland is open to improvement now handicapping and Charles Le Brun has solid claims on his recent AW runs elsewhere but well-treated CHOOSEY showed he wasn’t done with when running promisingly here in November and the return to this trip looks sure to suit.
Few come into this in much form, an exception being Fard who is entitled to go close on recent efforts, but ONEBABA is the one who catches the eye. Tony Carroll’s gelding seems to have quickly fallen out of love with Fibresand, but returns here from a 5lb lower mark than when a close third over C&D in September. Chillon Castle is a longstanding maiden, but again has place claims on her latest third over C&D.
There are a couple of interesting contenders lurking at the bottom of this handicap in Followthestars and Teemlucky and both are worth watching in the market. There may be more to come from By Jove on his third start for Mick Appleby, but it’s hard to get away from BAY OF NAPLES (nap) who floored an apparent handicap good thing at Southwell seven days ago. He is just as effective here.
Complexo kept on pleasingly when third to LADYWOOD over 1m2f at Chelmsford recently but at no stage in the straight did he make ground on the latter who relished the longer trip and looks good for a second win. The remainder have plenty to prove on the face of it though Eaux De Vie should find the step up in trip helpful now she moves into handicap company.
