Several are of interest in this novice event in which the betting will yield further clues.
ECLIPSE DE LUNAR was 100/1 for his debut at York recently, but will have good prospects here if he can replicate the high promise of the form shown in that close second.
Carter Cowboy is a potential improver judged on his debut fifth in the same race and may be next best, with others to consider closely including Beverley debut winner Northern Express and the Johnston-trained Derby entries Annandale and Baileys Derbyday.
The two to appeal most are the in-form pair GEORGE RIDSDALE and Ayr Poet, despite the fact that they are in the two widest stalls.
Course and distance winner Ayr Poet almost certainly has further improvement in him, but if George Ridsdale can run to something close to the form of last week’s wide-margin all-weather reappearance win he may well be the answer under Danny Tudhope. Herbert Pocket is third best.
This good-quality handicap may go to DUBAI ICON, who’s clear second at Meydan last time back in February came in a better race than this.
This lightly raced Newmarket raider will have good prospects if resuming in that form.
Nicholas T and thrice-raced three-year-old Spirit Dancer may be the pick of the opposition.
Sarvi is well handicapped again and her latest display suggested that a repeat of her 2018 win in this race is not out of the question.
However, preference has to be for the last-time-out winners Salsada and WONDROUS WORDS, with the former lightly raced and still possessing potential, while the latter was hugely on top from some way out on her handicap debut at Redcar.
Many possibilities in an open race. A chance is taken on YOSHIMI, who ran well off a 7lb higher mark in better company than today’s on his first two starts this season and for whom this second run back at 7 furlongs could yet turn out to be a plus.
Presidential heads a long list of alternatives ahead of Cassy O.
Plenty have possibilities but the vote goes to the progressive GWEEDORE, who is on a roll after his two Musselburgh wins and may be able to defy a penalty to complete a hat-trick.
Amaysmont was a creditable fifth in a Class 3 at York last time and is feared most on his return to 7 furlongs, though Gloves Lynch caught the eye with his late headway at Ascot and also looks interesting on his step back up in trip.
Others who could be in the mix are So Beloved and multiple course winner Tommy G.
An open race in which the vote goes to BE PROUD, who has a good record at this track and didn’t get any luck when favourite back on the all-weather at Newcastle 14 days ago.
Primo’s Comet and recent Thirsk scorer Autumn Flight are feared most, though the other last-time-out winners Victory Angel and Sound Of Iona are also respected.
Mid Winster has possibilities on her second run for Paul Midgley, while another to keep an eye on is the unexposed handicap newcomer Modular Magic.
This can go to CORMIER (NAP), who trounced his rivals at Catterick last week and is very well treated under a penalty for that runaway win.
Second choice is the lightly raced four-year-old Dreams And Visions who ended last season with a win in this race and is an interesting contender on his comeback.
Ben Lilly completed a double at Redcar on Tuesday, but he had to work hard in that Class 6 event and this is a quick turnaround under a double penalty.
