CHERRYHAWK proved at least as good as ever when filling the runner-up spot over this course and distance last week, sticking to her task well to be beaten just half a length. The softer conditions today won’t be an issue and it looks a good opportunity for her to belatedly open her account from an unchanged mark, with the booking of top amateur Simon Walker also in her favour.
SOLAR ACLAIM made a successful debut at Salisbury in September and then produced an even better effort in defeat when beaten just three quarters of a length over the same course and distance last time. That form comfortably sets the standard in this line-up and, with more improvement on the cards, Solar Aclaim is fancied to concede weight all round to regain the winning thread.
HAKUNA BABE shaped as if still in good form when finishing third at Nottingham last month, passing the post only four and a half lengths behind the winner and looking unlucky not to get closer still having been caught further back than ideal. She hasn’t done much wrong making the switch to handicaps and should be capable of defying this sort of mark when everything falls right.
KORKER has finished the season strongly and again showed smart form when finding one too good in a listed contest at Ascot last time, doing his best work late on to be beaten just a length and three-quarters. He acts well on heavy going and still looks on a workable mark now back in handicap company, so there is no reason why he shouldn’t be thereabouts again if continuing in the same rich vein of form.

ASSEMBLED ended a long losing run with a comfortable victory at this course last week, hitting the front over a furlong out and always doing enough from there to hold on by half a length. The drop back in trip today won’t be an issue and a 4 lb penalty probably won’t be enough to stop him, either, provided this doesn’t come too soon after just seven days off.
DARVEL was no match for an unexposed rival at Bath last time, ultimately going down by three and a quarter lengths, but he was still clearly the best of the rest. That was a big step back in the right direction after a couple of below-par efforts and he’s still 1 lb lower in the weights than when scoring at Brighton in July if building on that run.
ANDROMEDAS KINGDOM finally got off the mark at Beverley last month, quickly asserting in the final furlong to land the spoils by two and a quarter lengths with a bit in hand. The manner of that victory suggests she could be well treated from a BHA mark of 50 and the simple fact that she arrives here in good form could count for a lot in a race where most of her rivals have questions to answer.
TILT AT WINDMILLS bounced back to something like her best two-year-old form as she shed her maiden tag at Bath on Wednesday, coping well with the testing conditions as she made all to win by two and a half lengths. This will be tougher under a 6 lb penalty, but she clearly relishes the mud and could be the type to kick on now that she’s found the winning groove.
