6/1

Progressive filly won three times already this year with two AW wins over the winter and a turf win last time out at Yarmouth. 9lb rise a little harsh but she's still capable of a bold bid.

7/1

Won twice last summer but struggled in the autumn and two starts in 2020 suggest he is best avoided here.

8/1

Won twice here last autumn over 7f and after a subdued return she again ran well here over 6f latest. Step up to 1m an unknown but has to be respected.

15/2

Musselburgh 1m1f winner last summer twice third including once here in three 2020 starts and looks capable of making presence felt again today.

7/2

7f Chelmsford winner found one too good here over 7f subsequently under the 5lb penalty. Handicap rose by same amount so again expected to be in the mix if he lasts the extra 1f.

12/1

C&D winner last September not really threatened in three subsequent starts but she is only 1lb higher than that win so can't be completely dismissed.

14/1

7f winner here in Feb a shade disappointing subsequently at Southwell. Wide draw and layoff here two negatives suggesting caution today.

33/1

Rattled off a quickfire AW hat-trick in February but struggled twice since after handicapper had his say. Latest effort at Thirsk when a tailed off last of 10 a cautionary tale.

40/1

Won over 1m at Southwell on New Year's Day but little to recommend her of late and failed to beat a rival in last two starts before lockdown.

12/1

After a series of woeful efforts she finally showed some spark when third of 13 at Bath to end last season. Still others preferred here after nine months off.

10/1

16/1 Lingfield winner over 1m two starts back finished an 8L fifth of seven since at Leicester. Not what you could call consistent but better chance here back on AW.

Age: 5|  Weight: 9-1  |  J: Joshua Bryan |  T: B Barr|  OR: 59
12/1

Second to Confrerie at Lingfield two races back but like that rival he struggled to back the effort up on turf (1m2f at Windsor). Others more persuasive.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-1  |  J: Rhiain Ingram |  T: A G Newcombe|  OR: 59
28/1

Won twice over middle distances last season but form tailed off afterwards and two sixths over C&D this term give him a bit to find.

Age: 5|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: Daniel Muscutt |  T: L Carter|  OR: 58
33/1

Six-race maiden showed signs of ability here in February but after being well held last month others are still preferred.

Betting

Forecast

The Game Of Life (7/2), Roca Magica (6/1), Kendergarten Kop (7/1), Catch My Breath (15/2), Magicinthemaking (8/1), Confrerie (10/1), Gates Pass (12/1), Gregorian Girl (12/1), Vixen (12/1), Ubla (14/1), Bug Boy (28/1), Treble Clef (33/1), Elusif (33/1), Oblate (40/1)

Verdict
Only a handful of these offer persuasive cases and progressive filly ROCA MAGICA is taken to notch her fourth win of the campaign despite top-weight. Magicinthemaking caught the eye over 6f latest and she is now a big player with The Game Of Life and Catch My Breath best of the rest.
