Royal Connoisseur can track the leaders or be held up, on its Wolverhampton time its comes out 5th best but the 7lb claiming apprentice moves it to 3rd spot, so place claims.
Mehdi looks to need a longer trip and got time on any surface artificial or grass so it may need to race close to the pace but neither a bet or a lay to me.
Stocking needs to be held up here as it looks better over 5 furlongs and is a lay in my opinion if there's any value at this price.
Manatee Bay has run here and has 2nd best time also 2nd best time from the turf but hasnt run at Wolverhampton so could make the frame.
Kestrel Call isnt in my top 5 on Wolverhampton times, no speed figure on turf and hasnt run at this course, so a possible lay for me.
Enjoy Life may find this distance too short for it but it is only a 3-year-old so could improve and not a lay or bet in my opinion.
Slingsby who I tipped up when it won last time out, comes out 2nd or 3rd on times from here, 3rd or 4th using Wolverhampton times and only slow times on grass so could make the frame.
Meandmyshadow who also won for me last time out and comes out in top spot on both times here and at Wolverhampton and 3rd best on turf times and could repeat its win again here.
Magical Daze usually tracks the pace but may not find this surface ideal and another to lay in my opinion.
Harmonic Wave is a 3-year-old that could still improve but I will take a watching brief here and leave it alone on both fronts, betting or laying.
Lucky Lodge comes out 2nd best on its Wolverhampton times but has only run once here when well behind Slingsby and is held at the revised weights but could still make the frame.
Tavener comes out 3rd best on Wolverhampton times but slips to 4th behind an apprentice ridden horse, is just held by Slingsby on a run here before and is top rated from a turf time so could be a possible danger .
SUMMARY: I'm hoping that MEANDMYSHADOW 13/2 can once again lead and repel all challengers as the winning line looms, Slingsby is the only other known front runner and could also make he frame, Tavener is best on turf times but didnt reproduce that here before when behind and still held by Slingsby but could also make the frame.
Thanks for your support
