Gained the twelfth win of his career; third over this course and distance, last time out. Has gone up seven pounds for that success, however, which puts him on a career-high mark; expected to come up short.
3 C&D wins from front under Kate Leahy, the latest by 4l; raised 7lb but still respected

Hot Recent Form Trainer - 12 wins from 37 in the last 14 days (32%)
Without a win since last March; losing run currently at nine. Has been badly out of sorts the last thrice, including when dropped into selling company at Catterick last time. Change of headgear and significant weights drop could spark a revival though.
Held of late, including in seller; remains to be seen if headgear change makes difference

Winner of his last two starts, both successes coming in Class 5 handicaps over this trip. Raised five pounds for his latest success, but Thomas Greatrex maintains the partnership today; open to further improvement.
Nicely on top at Doncaster 3 weeks ago and 5lb rise doesn't look enough to stop him

Made a winning start to 2019 in a handicap at Kempton in January, but he is 0-6 since. Not disgraced in two of his last three starts, however, and he arrives here now running from ten pounds below his All-Weather mark; interesting.
Well treated on AW form and only beaten 1l when 6th at Windsor latest; not discounted

10 x Distance Winner - Won 10 times before at this distance
An admirable veteran who has run respectably in defeat in his three starts so far this campaign. Now thirteen pounds below his last winning mark and the switch to these softer ground conditions should suit; each-way contender.
Formerly useful but this 11yo hasn't seen much action in recent years; others preferred

Cold Recent Form Trainer - 1 wins from 33 in the last 14 days (3%)
Strike-rate of just 3-37 shows that he is far from the most frequent winner, but he has run well in defeat the last twice. The first-time visor applied last time out is retained today, and he is now running off a career-low mark.
Kept on well when reaching frame last twice; handles going softer than good; in with shout

Verdict

Going softer than good is an unknown for ATALANTA'S BOY but he's progressive and it's doubtful the handicapper's got his measure yet.
