Hard to warm to too many of these and the progressive BIRD FOR LIFE looks the safest option, even allowing for the fact she has a bit to prove on the grass. The Secrets Out is a possible reviver, while Sanches and Hallingham also enter calculations.[Paul Smith]

Going the right way this year, winning at Kempton last month and better effort when neck second back there a fortnight later (third won next time); edging up the weights and bit to prove on turf but more to recommend her than the bulk of these; could well be the answer.

Big player on last season's turf best but well short of that level in two runs this year; return to this trip can help and revival entirely possible.

Sprung 66-1 surprise on his handicap debut in December; back at that level when second at Kempton in March; still feasibly treated but has to prove he can be as effective on the grass.

Off the mark at the 17th attempt when making all for wide-margin win over 1m6f here 17 days ago (heavy); 7lb rise fair on that evidence but very different underfoot conditions to contend with here.

Wide-margin winner over 1m2f on AW last summer but that remains his only success from 23 starts; ended up beaten 18l at Goodwood 12 days ago and although return to Class 6 company will suit, he's far from bombproof.

Landed a Lingfield turf seller over 11.5f in July but not been able to build on that back in handicaps since, ending 2017 with two poor runs on the AW; can go well fresh but not without risk.

In good form last spring but ended 2017 under a cloud and only midfield at Thirsk last month; down in the weights but too much to prove.

Took record to 0-19 (two defeats over hurdles) when failing to justify market support at Lingfield in February; 2lb lower here but too much to prove.
