7/2

Runner-up on debut at Wolverhampton in November 2018 so her fourth of 11 at Yarmouth after 590 days off a more than commendable effort. Very interesting runner could start to repay powerful connections patience.

5/1

Unreliable sort who finally came good at Doncaster (7f, firm) in June after shaping well on comeback run. Below-par here on soft next but although seventh at Newbury latest he was beaten less than 5L. Faster the ground the better.

10/1

Series of good efforts already this year and probably didn't stay an extended 1m2f here latest so could easily bounce back now although ground quicker than good would be a concern.

9/1

Elder statesman of this contest won over 1m at Chepstow last summer but little in four starts this term to recommend him now although handicap plummet obviously could help.

28/1

Doubts remain about his effectiveness on turf (0-9) whereas he's 3-13 on AW having won back to back handicaps at up to 9.5f earlier in the year at Wolverhampton. Struggled to find his form since racing resumed, one of the lesser lights in this.

7/1

Well-bred three-year-old showed glimpses in three novices but far too keen on handicap bow at Chepstow latest and over 1f further now that could be a greater concern still today. Does have untapped potential.

3/1

Twice fourth in maidens and although only sixth (of 11) on handicap bow at Ayr (1m) he had a fairly rough ride there so off 2lb lower today he's not ignored.

12/1

Raced over 1m2f-1m4f this season and three starts haven't really being encouraging towards his prospects here. Form over 1m at two was a little better though so maybe the trip will suit better.

14/1

Fair effort on return bettered when he finished third in a 1m Musselburgh handicap (good) latest beaten just over 5L. Gets 2lb back today and looks to have a genuine chance off bottom weight.

Betting

Forecast

Magic Voice (3/1), Anna Of Lorraine (7/2), Bertog (5/1), Puerto Banus (5/1), Huwaiteb (7/1), Kenstone (9/1), Al Ozzdi (10/1), Fast Deal (12/1), Captain Corelli (14/1), Daafr (28/1)

Verdict

Not the strongest handicap run today and with plenty of runners facing question marks it may be worth chancing unexposed filly ANNA OF LORRAINE who has a beautiful pedigree and represents the powerful Stoute-Moore axis. She ran pretty well on her return from 19 months off latest but surely should be able to improve for the run. More experienced rivals Al Ozzdi; who didn't stay latest but was in good form earlier and Puerto Banus; who twice ran well before disappointing latest must bounce back but are distinctly likely to.
  1. Anna Of Lorraine
  2. Al Ozzdi
  3. Puerto Banus
