Line Of Reason is dangerously treated now back in form and Marnie James is evidently an improving 3yo, while Oriental Lilly is another hat-trick seeker. However, SOLDIER'S MINUTE is interesting after hinting at a return to form at York and then drawn out of contention round Chester.[Alistair Jones]

Only three; much improved of late in winning small-field 5f handicaps at Hamilton and Haydock, most impressive in defying a penalty (4lb in effect) the last time; another one to contend with now plus the additional 2lb that's since kicked in, but clearly on the upgrade.

Ten-time winner who seems back in the groove and finished a close third of 17 in 5f Curragh handicap despite a tricky track position; capable of winning off this mark.

Yet to match last year's form but ran respectably when sixth in York handicap (6f, good to firm) before having to suffer a poor draw at Chester; not ruled out.

New trip of 6f and up in grade when below best at York last time but went there on the back of a Redcar win over 5f when more amenable to restraint in first-time hood; 4-12 during light career and needs respecting.

Four of her five wins have been on the AW but the turf win came here last month over 6f and did well to go in again back at 5f on the Tapeta; 4lb higher than the last time but can cope with this higher level of competition and she knows how to win.

Progressive in the early part of last season, reeling off a hat-trick (all 5f, good to firm), before the handicapper caught up; 7lb higher than for the last of those wins but that didn't stop him at Ripon 18 days ago (5f), with that return to form coinciding with better fortunes for the yard; won well, but up another 5lb and in a better race.
