Last August's C&D win came off a mark fully 20lb lower and she's been held a few times since two AW victories in the spring; needs to find more from somewhere.

Plenty of short-priced defeats to go with his four wins, including twice last month; met traffic in a messy amateurs' handicap latest but remains on a career-high mark and there's little margin for error.

Three wins have all come at Brighton in the spring and she rarely runs anywhere else now; today's longer trip is fine but she's 2lb above her highest successful mark and the switch from cheekpieces to a hood didn't make much difference last time.

Nottingham win (first three clear) off 5lb lower reads well enough and his latest effort may be best forgiven (didn't look to see out 11.6f on soft ground); is one to consider for a yard in decent form.

Started favourite on his handicap debut off 2lb higher last month, having been gelded, but pulled hard yet again and didn't see it out; a lot will hinge on how he settles going back up from 1m.

J: Saffie Osborne

T: Michael Bell

Knocking at the door prior to opening his account in Class 6 handicap here (1m6f) last month; unexposed at this sort of distance and Saffie Osborne's useful claim offsets a 3lb rise; upped in grade but runs off a very low weight; shortlisted.

T: Michael Bell

Appears to be improving as he steps up in trip and he made it 12th-time lucky at Chelmsford (1m6f, Polytrack) ten days ago, looking to idle in front and winning with a bit more in hand than the neck margin would suggest; has gone well here before and respected from 3lb higher.

Visor has helped but he's blown the start on five of his six starts, including when beaten on the nod by Fellowship over C&D early last month; was below par off his revised mark last time and needs to do better at the stalls.

Non-runners

Craft In Silk, Fellowship

Verdict

A half-sister to a 1m4f winner, MOONLIT CLOUD appreciated going beyond an extended 1m for the first time when off the mark at Bath and can follow up off a 3lb higher mark. Codswallop's latest effort over further on soft ground is probably best ignored and he should do better, likewise Seal Of Solomon if he can brush things up at the stalls and Heatherdown Hero if he settles back up in trip. Limited Ability is the one to track in the market.[Graham Wheldon]
