Form & Verdict
Front-runner who made all in his first two starts for this yard with cheekpieces added in May, firstly at Kempton (2m, AW) and then at Bath (1m6f, good to soft); ran another good race when second of four back at Bath (11.4f, firm) a fortnight ago and in a race where few come into it in any sort of form, he has to be high on the list.

Form & Verdict
Handy sort who is 0-7, but having been off for a year she wasn't disgraced when fourth of nine on stable debut over C&D (good) this month; should be better for the run and more appealing than many.

Can pull hard and seems to have lost her form after a productive spell in late summer; has done most of her racing at a lower level and others make more appeal.

Form & Verdict
0-7 and her last two efforts have been poor, but she put up one of her best efforts prior to that when fourth of nine over C&D (good to firm) where she didn't enjoy the clearest of runs; now 7lb lower so would have a chance if bouncing back.

Six-race maiden who has shown a hint of ability in a couple of her starts, but beaten a long way when stepped up in trip at Ripon (1m4f, good) this month; visor replaces cheekpieces, but stamina remains a concern.

Form & Verdict
Made the frame three times over 1m-1m4f on Tapeta with blinkers added in March and is lower in the weights now, but a modest effort returned to turf when fourth of five at Ripon (1m4f, good) last month; visor now given a go, but he needs a revival if he is to make it 12th-time lucky.

Very little to get excited about in five starts including two turf handicaps over this trip; bred to be much better than he has shown so far, but he needs to improve plenty for the fitting of a visor.

Betting Forcast

9/4 Charlie’s Yard, 5/2 Valley Of Flowers, 12/1 O’Reilly’s Pass, 25/1 Loving Pearl, 8/1 Qweldryk, 16/1 Cathy’s Girl, 4/1 Foreshadow, 20/1 Ballynaveen Boy, 16/1 Oscar Doodle

Verdict

There is always a chance that one of the 3yos could take a step forward with Qweldryk possibly the pick of that group, being 7lb lower than when fourth over C&D in May. However, the solid option looks to be CHARLIE'S YARD who has at least won a couple of times this season and whose second of four at Bath last time looks good in the context of this field. Valley Of Flowers could play a part if coming on from her encouraging recent return from a lengthy absence.[David Bellingham]
