Plenty of dead wood here. Porto Ferro and Mooroverthebridge are both possibly progressive enough for this level to be worth considering but preference is for the first-named's 10yo stablemate PHAROH JAKE, who is very tempting off his lowest mark for five and a half years, all the more so if the first-time blinkers inspire him to break on terms. Hurricane Alert has solid each-way claims. [Jeremy Grayson]

Best form since autumn 2016 when easy 2l winner at Windsor ten days ago (6f, good to firm; RPR 70), having just missed out over the same C&D two weeks prior; impeded on one slightly inconclusive previous drop to 5f this year, but claims are obvious if still able to function over this trip.

Improver for handicaps this term, setting a clear personal best in beating Fantasy Justifier over a length at Bath ten days ago (5.5f, good to firm); 6lb worse off with that one excluding claims and 2lb badly-in under the penalty, but more scope to progress than most here; chance.

Renewed grounds for optimism at Bath latest, evidently appreciating the combination of 5f and fast turf for the first time and going down by under a length; that was just a 0-58 event, however, and he's 1lb out of the weights up a little in class here, so further improvement required.

Just 1-37, but has at least proven consistent enough this spring to place on his last four outings (5f, Polytrack and fast turf), including when over 1l ahead of Pharoh Jake at Lingfield latest; more needed for win purposes but solid place claims.

Beating rivals for the first time when just over 5l fourth on this month's Bath handicap debut (5.5f, good), suffering appreciable trouble in running and better than the bare form; more needed again to go close here, however, especially as she's 2lb out of the weights this time.

Last time's 3l Lingfield fourth (5f, standard; Hurricane Alert nearly 2l ahead) appeared a fair effort, considering the slow start he recovered from; now on lowest mark since late 2012 and application of blinkers adds to the intrigue (just one run in a visor four years ago); could be worth chancing.

Reproduction of the high-60s RPRs of her best 2016 juvenile form would see her go very close, but despite placing another seven times last her best efforts last autumn and winter mostly fall short of what is required here; no renewed encouragement returned to turf at Brighton latest.

Prolific around Bath's sprint distances on firm ground a few years back but more moderate runs than good even at that happy hunting ground during 2017, and the application of a hood (retained) on this year's seasonal return only revived her fortunes up to a point; others more convincing.

Back on track when running Mooroverthebridge to just over a length at Bath latest despite ground quicker than ideal; good swing with that penalised rival here but drop to a dead 5f is a concern, considering a 0-5 record at the trip (mostly in 2013); down the field at Bath on Wednesday.
