J: Jason Watson

T: Darryll Holland

Fair fourth to the high-class Relief Rally on debut at Windsor (5f, soft) in April; disappointing at Haydock (6f, good to firm) in May but can be firmly in the mix if tapping back into her debut promise on this stable debut (formerly with Dominic Ffrench Davis; remains in same ownership).

J: Harry Davies

Responded well to pressure when making a winning return to action at Kempton five weeks ago (7f; hooded first time and gelded since previous start); 4lb rise fair enough given his superiority, even though the form has taken some knocks since.

Havanarama

J: Ross Coakley

Regressive in four turf races last May-July; however, this combination of gelding operation, first-time hood and switch to AW is a possible source of improvement on reappearance; upset in stalls and withdrawn at Wolverhampton in November (7-1 at the time).

Havanarama

J: Ross Coakley

T: Hugo Palmer

Went the wrong way in four runs in spring/summer, well beaten on nursery debut at Chester (wore tongue-strap) on latest; fair bit to prove on AW debut after an absence but perhaps a gelding operation and first-time cheekpieces will have a positive effect.

Holds solid claims on the form of her Thirsk 7f novice second in August but she was well below par when sixth (on good to soft ground) in a similar event at Chester last month; more is needed now going into handicaps.

Well beaten at Carlisle when last seen in September but may have been unsuited by the fast ground; otherwise she's been pretty consistent since winning a 6f nursery at Nottingham in July; each-way possible on AW debut.

Danehill Star

J: William Carson

T: Tony Carroll

0-8 and has seriously threatened only once, when second at Wolverhampton (8.5f, Tapeta) last November; some encouragement from his penultimate start, which came over C&D, but couldn't make any serious impression at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) latest; more needed.

Poor form until he looked to have turned a corner at Wolverhampton (8.5f, Tapeta) on his penultimate start; scuppered his chance when blowing the start at Chelmsford latest; drops 1lb and could go well if acting here.

10/1

Verdict

Ed Dunlop won this last year and holds leading claims with LADY AVA, who got off the mark in a soft-ground nursery at Catterick last month. Chat Up Line has run her best races on soft ground and could be best of the rest.[Ben Hutton]
