IVA GO looks the answer to a tricky opener. She was pitched into Listed company last time which proved too much after a good win at Beverley. She was second here on debut before that and has more to offer.
Mecca’s Hot Steps improved on her debut effort when second at Doncaster latest.
She has plenty of pace and looks the main danger. Baileys Prayer had a quiet debut at Ripon last time and can build on that.
LOST IN ALASKA has shown some promise in a couple of runs and has a tongue tie on today which could help. He was a solid fifth at Yarmouth last time and has probably achieved the most of those with experience.
Diamond Shower and Raksha are both nice newcomers from yards that can get them ready at home. Well worth a look in the betting.
TIZWOTITIZ has been beaten less than two lengths in a couple of handicaps and this drop into selling level could get him over the line.
He goes well for today’s 7lb claimer and shapes as though he’ll see out this extra furlong from an ideal draw.
Our Secret wasn’t disgraced at Thirsk last time and is another dropping out of handicap level with a chance.
Jungle Room doesn’t have the best draw but has been running in much better races than this and has moved yards.
WISE WORDS has been showing more than good enough form to take this on the all-weather and makes her turf debut here from a fair mark. She showed lots of pace when scoring at Newcastle last time and should have more to offer after four runs.
Arishka has been consistent and can cash in if the tip doesn’t take to this surface. She was a close second at Windsor last time and Richard Kingscote is a positive booking.
Kyllachy Warrior went down in a tight finish at Beverley last time coming back from a break and is capable of going close again from 4lb higher.
EPAULEMENT was a convincing winner the last time he tackled this course and distance and has had a win and two seconds since. He went close off a similar mark at Chester last time and should be right in the mix again.
Al Muffrih is interesting from William Haggas. He’s been hard to get on the track but was less than two lengths off the pace when fifth at Newmarket coming back from a year off last time. He looked in need of that and will be hard to keep off the podium.
Lunar Jet had a bit up his sleeve when scoring at Newmarket latest and deserves this step up in grade.

MUSIC SEEKER came right back to his best when winning by more than three lengths at Nottingham last time out. The ground was a little softer there but he’s on a fair weight and gets on well with today’s 7lb claimer.
Autretot is a consistent performer at this level and wasn’t beaten far at Thirsk latest.
Aiya pulled too hard at Musselburgh last time and there should be more pace on early here, which plays to his strengths.
MR COCO BEAN ran a cracker when second at Haydock last time over this distance despite getting boxed in. He motored once in the clear but the line came too soon. He is off the same mark here and can make amends.
Mr Carbonator has been in good form on turf and wasn’t beaten far at Nottingham last time out. He has been left alone by the handicapper which gives him a chance.
Splash of Verve has been in good nick on the AW and would have a chance if translating that form to turf.
MACHIAVELLI has been running well in Ireland and with a third at Tipperary and then a good fourth at Navan last time. He is handicapped to go close over a trip that suits really well.
Motahassen wasn’t beaten far at Doncaster last time and coud be helped by this shorter trip from a fair mark. Muqarred has been going well on the all-weather and is interesting stepping up from a mile.
