1—Major Muscari hasn't any form over this course and distance but may prefer further to show its best.
2—Essaka another with no course and distance form and also may need further to do its best.
3—Ohsosecret hasn't any form over this course and distance but looking at its form from other courses it could well be a hidden danger so can't be dismissed easily.
4—Mayfield Girl has recorded a time over six furlongs here, but its recent form has been quite poor and can be held up or track the leaders but may do better on Southwell's slower surface.
5—Scarlet Bounty is a three-year-old that looks like it needs further to show its best so these could go too fast for it to stay with them.
6—Most Tempting is my third top rated but its time was relatively slow and can track the pace setters or be held up.
7—Top Cop likes to be prominent without leading early in a race and comes out second best on my figures.
8—Hit The Lights is one of the possible leaders but its times are slow and has had eight runs on the all-weather without success and drawn in stall nine.
9—Jolly Red Jeanz is another runner that may find things happening too quickly at this distance and may prefer further.
10—Frank The Barber is my top rated and also a possible front runner but it's drawn in stall ten and I think it's capable of e repeat of its best time if things go its way.
11—Kinloch Pride the third of the known front-runners but has been drawn widest of all in stall eleven but I think it may prefer a slower surface so may not be able to lead here.
Summary: A class six race over the minimum distance with eleven runners, five of them three-year-olds and three known possible front runners. Data is a bit thin in this race and I've only got three of the field with a recordable time over this course and distance. Ohsosecret could be the hidden danger of the field so not easily left out, all three of the known front-runners have been drawn in the outside three stalls so if they do get out fast and move over to the rails all those drawn inside of them could be crowded early on and hinder their chances, so I quite expect hit The Lights and FRANK THE BARBER 8/1 to contest the early pace and if the selection gets to the front it could be hard to pass, but there is a chance that something else drawn nearer the rails could try to push on early doors from a favourable draw so stakes have to be kept low.
