After waiting so long to get off the mark Petrify wouldn't be an obvious one to follow up and preference is for PHANTOM RIVER, who hinted that races would be coming her way when not beaten far at Doncaster, and conditions were extremely testing on her latest run. Turnbury can also go well provided the ground isn't too fast.[Alistair Whitehouse-Jones]

Prominent racer who has been in fine form since returning to the Flat, building on his Windsor second when landing a first turf success in 1m3f soft-ground handicap at Newbury under Megan Nicholls; faster ground perhaps not ideal when not so good back there last time.

Finally off the mark at 34th attempt when strong in the finish under Mitch Godwin over C&D last week, for which he is penalised; benefited from the return of cheekpieces then but wouldn't be an obvious one to follow up.

Maiden after nine starts; creeping down the weights and creditable of late, beaten only 3l over 1m2f at Doncaster (good to firm) before a 10l defeat on heavy at Leicester; certainly no worse for the cheekpieces sported on both those runs.

Lightly raced 4yo who won a Lingfield maiden (1m4f, AW) in February, her second start; comfortably held in her first three handicaps, though, and needs to find something extra.

Won over hurdles in March and also placed over fences this year; however, ought to have been suited by conditions when midfield at Bath (1m5f, good to firm) back on the Flat last month and again failed to fire returned to hurdling since then.

0-11 over hurdles and form this year in that sphere nothing special; did finish runner-up in a Polytrack 1m4f seller 19 days ago which suggests he's in fair shape, but probably no more than place claims.
