An interesting novice for the time of the year with several interesting newcomers in opposition, including WINTER WAR. He makes plenty of appeal on paper for a yard amongst the winners and could be the way to go without the benefit of market clues. Cuban Tiger is interestin, too. Chelmsford eye-catcher Alfa Kelllenic completes the shortlist.
ROMAN EMPEROR gets the nod to build on his recent Chelmsford second and make it third time lucky, although a strong market move for newcomer Novarro would put a slightly different slant on things. The other Sheikh Mohammed Obaid runner Artistic Mission should also be thereabouts.
CEPHALUS won off marks in the 70s during his time with Charlie Hills so a 4 lb rise for Lingfield doesn’t look enough to stop him now he’s back in form. Hollie Doyle takes over the reins on lightly-raced 6-y-o Top Button who is second choice ahead of Landlordtothestars.
BILLY WEBSTER made a winning handicap debut in ready fashion at Wolverhampton 6 weeks ago and, with that form proving strong, a 9 lb rise looks manageable. Cotai Vision and Mart both warrant respect.
A tentative vote goes to KATH’S TOYBOY, who ran well after a break behind an impressive winner over C&D last month. Turbo Command, Intoxicata and Top of The Class are a trio of others with solid-looking claims.

DIAMONDSINTHESAND hasn’t enjoyed the rub of the green since getting off the mark at Wolverhampton and can capitalise on a handy-looking mark now. Recent-scorers Angel Amadea and Once Adaay rate the obvious threats, with Absolute Dream another to consider in an open handicap.
A case can be made for most of these but SIXTIES CHIC has slipped to an attractive mark and can bounce back to winning ways having not enjoyed the best of runs when third to Storymaker at Lingfield last time out. George Boughey’s hat-trick seeker rates the main threat, although the less exposed Platinum Jubilee and C&D scorer Just Janet can also have a say in a competitive handicap.
THE NAIL GUNNER offered something to work with on his first outing since leaving Denis Quinn after 6 months off when seventh at Wolverhampton 10 days ago so could be the answer with a potentially lenient mark to work with. Ustath should come on for his recent run and has dipped below his last winning mark, so is next best ahead of Come On Girl, who was only just edged out at Lingfield 2 weeks ago.
Stable-switcher NEY could be worth chancing in this grade given the pick of his hurdling form. Silver Bubble and Uther Pendragon are feared most.
