Verdict

Perhaps BLUE HAVANA can bounce back from whatever was amiss last time, having been knocking on the door previously.

Form: 663/06
Age: 5
Weight: 9-12
Still a maiden after eighteen starts for six pales including one over hurdles, beaten fifty lengths at Haydock last month and hard to make a case for off just four pounds lower today.
Dual-purpose maiden heavily beaten the last twice at 7f and 1m6f

T: Rebecca Menzies
Form: 346261
Age: 4
Weight: 9-9
One course and distance win last time out from just the two starts at Musselburgh and upped five pounds for that half-length victory. Ran on well that day but stable are out of sorts lately.
Emerged from behind off a strong pace to win here 17 days ago; 5lb higher mark now

Falcon's Fire
J: Connor Beasley
T: Keith Dalgleish
Form: 021564
Age: 5
Weight: 9-6
Twice a course and distance winner the latest at the beginning of July and only has a pound more now. Scored off sixteen pounds higher in 2016 so potentially well-handicapped at his best.
Regular here and ran okay last week in a higher grade; solid enough credentials

Melabi
J: Paddy Aspell
T: Stella Barclay
Form: 746254
Age: 5
Weight: 9-5
Arrives here in reasonable form after a three and a quarter length fourth at Wolverhampton off this mark, best win was off twelve pounds higher in 2016 and needs to recapture that which seems unlikely.
Only just failed over this far at Beverley in July and has been running respectably since

Schindlers Ark
J: Jamie Spencer
T: Gordon Elliott
Form: 505-80
Age: 4
Weight: 9-1
Travels over from Ireland for Gordon Elliott with Jamie Spencer booked to ride but only has a two-mile maiden hurdle to his name. Last of fifteen at Killarney last time and beaten forty lengths, big ask.
Respected connections but seems best with give underfoot and has been poor of late

New Abbey Angel

T: Keith Dalgleish
Form: 542224
Age: 5
Weight: 9-1
Plenty of recent placed form with three second places, two over course and distance, and a two and a half-length fourth over shorter on Tuesday. Same rating here and has won off six pounds higher.
Keeps finishing thereabouts but he's a notoriously tricky individual who is now 1-41

Enemy Of The State
J: Ben Robinson
T: Linda Perratt
Form: 984348
Age: 4
Weight: 8-12
Should carry a pound less and still a maiden after eleven starts. Beaten eight lengths here over further last week at odds of 28/1 and down five pounds here.
Frame efforts here and Hamilton this season but further back the last twice and now 0-11

Breton Blues
J: Nathan Evans
T: Fred Watson
Form: 000-06
Age: 8
Weight: 8-12
Another forced to carry one pound more than his handicap mark and another maiden despite fifteen races. Beaten fourteen lengths at Ayr on first run in five months and should improve.
Very limited 15-race maiden who is certainly not improving

Mama Said
J: Jamie Gormley
T: Iain Jardine
Form: 6840
Age: 3
Weight: 8-11
Trainer jockey combination won this last season with Thorntoun Care and sent the Mastercraftsman filly here this year. Up in trip after a defeat at Hamilton but pedigree screams stamina and expected to improve for this stamina test.
Looks modest but pedigree offers some hope for this longer trip

Blue Havana
J: Jason Hart
T: John Quinn
Form: -52236
Age: 3
Weight: 8-11
Trainer John Quinn and jockey Jason Hart are both at the top of their game and their filly has some decent placed form including a short head second at Beverley in May off four pounds lower.
Has gone up the weights for getting beat but last time but that wasn't her true running
