11/10
Lightly-raced filly made all for wide-margin Thirsk win (6f, good to soft) six days ago; seemingly appreciating return to softer ground. Gets conditions again and big player under 6lb penalty if dictating things (holds entries early next week).

11/2
Made winning handicap debut at Newcastle (6f, AW; 15-2) in December, rallying strongly late on for game success. Off since and one to note from just 3lb higher on first turf handicap start. Market should offer clues.

150/1
Couple of wins at two-years-old for Richard Hughes but struggled from increased handicap marks and final start at Nottingham was laboured on heavy ground; beaten a fair way on stable bow at Beverley (1m½f, good; 66-1) and opposable despite 3lb ease.

7f Wolverhampton winner in November and beaten only a neck over the same C&D last month on sole start since; can be competitive if taking that form to the turf. Trainer also runs Proclaimer.

11/1
Lightly-raced and appeared to be improving when adding to Lingfield seller success with winning h'cap bow at Kempton (7f, AW; 5-1) in March. Disappointing back on turf last month at Beverley (7½f, good; 6-4f) beating only one home; may bounce back.

12/1
Dandy Man filly remains a maiden after 10 goes; never going close than when ¾L second over 6f here (good to firm) a year ago. Remains 2lb above that mark and needs more after being well held on reappearance at Beverley.

11/1
Maiden whose better efforts in maiden/novice company last year were on softer ground; beaten a long way on AW reappearance last month at Lingfield but first-time blinkers and a significantly reduced mark offer him something to work with.

33/1
Dark Angel filly hasn't yet been living up to 110,000 gns price tag but only had three starts and sets off in handicaps from a lowly base; second runner for Richard Fahey and worth a look in the betting.

8/1
Filly was all out to hold on at Thirsk (1m, good to soft) on reappearance having hit the front 2f out; 5lb higher and needs to improve again to continue winning ways.

Party Island25
Age: 3|  Weight: 8-9| J: T P O'Shea| T: D J Coakley| OR:  57

Four-race maiden, big prices and well fended off in novice/maiden company so far and needs plenty improvement back on turf for handicap bow.

Maiden, hasn't beaten a single rival home in three starts at the end of last season/beginning of this one; hard to envisage a forward role.

Betting

Forecast

Zim Baby (11/10), Proclaimer (11/2), Bankawi (8/1), Rains Of Castamere (11/1), Genever Dragon (11/1), Lexi The One (12/1), Maurice Dancer (12/1), Shadow Leader (12/1), Party Island (14/1), Internationalangel (33/1), Fantom Force (33/1), Trumpets Call (33/1), Rochford (100/1), Mac Mccarthy (150/1)

Verdict

An impressive all-the-way success at Thirsk six days ago suggested ZIM BABY is on the up. The positive tactics reaped rewards and she seemed very much at ease with some give underfoot. She'll get similar conditions in attempting to defy the penalty and might prove equal to the challenge. The Julie Camacho pair Proclaimer and Maurice Dancer are of interest, while Bankawi should have a say and both Internationalangel and Genever Dragon rate as possible improvers.
