Bred to go well on artificial surfaces but hasn't shown too much in three runs yet, however trainer has a good record first time up in handicaps (21% strike rate last 2 years) which makes him of interest here.

Another that should do well on tapeta/fibresand but didn't show much in three starts last year. May do better this season and yard do get first time handicap winners (11% last two years) but may need this after seven month break.

4/1

Did better for going handicapping and cheekpieces last time, running a little better than fourth place suggests (missed break, rushed up to lead) and may progress again from that. Acts on surface but again, may need the run after a break.

Minor improvement on final start as a 2-y-o and goes handicapping on a basement mark in a moderate race, but would still only be of interest if the market spoke strongly for him.

Should make a better 3-y-o and the type to improve this season, but yard not known for first time up handicap winners (just 1-48 in the last two years) and is best watched today.

Shown very little to date and already looks regressive, finishing well beaten at Southwell on latest start. Handicapper dropping him chunks but no realistic chance.

9/2

Did better from a wide draw at Southwell last time, finishing third in a moderate contest and that at least represents a step back in the right direction. Drop back to 7f not a problem and at least comes into this fit and with some recent form to her name.

Betting

Forecast

Alfolk (2/1), African Grey (4/1), Hollywood Harry (4/1), Annie Apple (4/1), Panther In Pink (9/2), Rey Loopy (6/1), Kazanan (16/1), Albizu Campos (16/1)

Verdict

Money for Irish raider Annie Apple would make her of some interest in such a moderate event, but preference at this stage is for top weight ALFOLK, who should do better for the step into handicaps. Panther In Pink did better last time and might improve again, and Hollywood Henry is another that ought to win a race or two at a low level this year.
