Competitive fare with pace drawn across the track. Duke Cosimo had three of these in behind him when second over C&D ten days ago and can go well, with class-dropping Bobby Joe Leg and course specialist Rock Warbler also entering calculations. Perhaps this drop to Class 6 company will be enough for JOHNNY CAVAGIN to end his drought, with the veteran having run respectably for his new yard and with the likely strong pace here set to suit him well.[Paul Smith]

C&D winner last August and also scored at Carlisle in September; placed over C&D on his last two starts and should make another bold bid from the front.

Four course wins for Oliver Greenall and 9lb lower than for the last of them; that was back in September 2017 but looked to retain ability last year; starts out for new stable at a realistic level and not discounted.

Both wins have come over this trip on Tapeta; not at best since close second at Wolverhampton in November but drop to Class 6 company should be in his favour and now has blinkers added for the first time.

Not won since his debut and although he ran respectably over C&D ten days ago, he finished behind two of today's rivals; first crack at a Class 6 handicap but others appeal more.

Promise at two (for Karl Burke) but heavy defeats all three runs in 2018; 50-1 and only in midfield on recent stable debut; return to sprinting and latest drop in the weights can help and could be the type her new trainer will get to click at some point.

11-race maiden who was well backed prior to finishing second at Wolverhampton when last seen in July (first-time visor, retained); will need more returning from a six-month break if he's to break his duck.

On a long losing run but he's not been with Paul Midgley that long and he's run respectably on both starts for the stable; drop into Class 6 company can help and no surprise to see him go close.

17-race maiden who followed Southwell fourth on New Year's Day with lacklustre display nine days ago; others have more pressing claims.
