Top of the list is SPANISH MANE, who justified favouritism in emphatic style in an apprentice handicap at Lingfield two weeks ago and a 6lb rise for that win looks fair.
The main danger is Dreamboat Annie, who put in a dominant display on all-weather last time, though Bold Decision was runner-up at Kempton 12 days ago and has claims if he can repeat that form back on turf.
Another to consider is Gherkin, who has reached the frame in four of his last five runs and looks interesting on his step back up to 7 furlongs.
This can go to SHINE FOR YOU, who only just failed to land a gamble over 7 furlongs at Kempton on her recent debut and sets a fairly useful standard on that clear second.
The other runners with experience have plenty to find with the selection, but James Fanshawe’s striking newcomer Embarked needs watching in the market, while another debutant to keep an eye on is Tom Dascombe’s Wham Bam.
It’s hard to rule out many of these in this competitive race but the vote goes to Clive Cox’s tough filly FOLLOW SUIT, who rallied well when scoring on her nursery debut over course and distance last month and may be able to defy a 3lb rise here to make it three wins from five starts.
The other last-time-out winners Bella Notte and Onaledge are feared most, though nursery newcomer Desert Vison looks interesting on her drop back in trip and it wouldn’t be a surprise if she made a bold bid.
Sycamore could be a danger now sent handicapping on only his third run, but if he can repeat last week’s Bath running then ABLE KANE should prove tough to beat.
The leading contender is Paul Midgley’s progressive four-year-old INDIAN SOUNDS (nap), who powered clear at Beverley last Wednesday and is well treated under a penalty here in his bid to make four wins from his last five starts.
The main dangers are Dark Shot, who has been resurgent with a win and close call in his last two starts, and North Wind, who was runner-up behind the selection last week.
The well-bred DHABYAH sets a high standard on her Haydock win, and her near miss under a penalty at Windsor, and should have no trouble taking advantage of a golden opportunity.
Mabel Jane made some encouraging late headway at Lingfield on her debut last month and she may be able to win the battle for second against bumper winner Little Jessture.
Ascraeus has finished placed in similar handicaps in her last three starts and is respected with cheekpieces added, but preference is for ELEGANT LOVE.
She was the runner-up behind an improver in her bid for a double at Newbury last time and is on the same mark here.
Most of the others have something to prove, but Mick Appleby’s Peruvian Lily is on a dangerous mark on her return to action and would be interesting if the market vibes are strong.
