Thirsk maiden winner for his former yard over a mile in 2015 but made very little impression in four starts since. Now starts out for a new yard after a break trying an increased trip.

The handicapper is giving him a chance the question is does he still have the ability to take the chance. On current evidence the answer is probably unlikely as he was slow away and turned in a very lacklustre effort last time out over C&D. Did win a division of this race last year when in better form.

Starts life for a new stable having run in three 1m2f maidens when trained in Ireland and not knocked about on his last start. Makes his handicap debut here and certainly looks as though he is capable of better.

Best to overlook the run last time out (raced wide and didn't settle) at Wolverhampton and better judged on her Newcastle run the time before over 1m2f. Handicapper releases his grip slightly more again and you wouldn't rule out her taking advantage soon.

Hard to write off anything from a yard that has made a good start to the season. This one is still a maiden though but she did show some ability over 1m2f last time out and may well appreciate the extra distance here.

Seemingly always hampers his chance by failing to settle and his resolution in a finish is open to question. Stable in decent form at the moment but still 4lb above his last winning mark and others are preferred here.

Won over this C&D last year off a 2lb lower mark and that looked at the time a career best effort. Failed to win again but produced a couple of creditable efforts before finishing the season weakly and may need this coming back from a break.

Just the one win last year which came at Redcar over 1m6f and he never quite repeated that form and gradually went off the boil. Looks to have a tough task from this mark and just out of the weights here on his seasonal return.

Forecast

Star Glitter (9/4), Monaco Rose (5/2), Up Ten Down Two (11/4), Tred Softly (4/1), Serenity Now (4/1), Cape Love (7/1), Russian Royale (12/1), Lady Clitico (16/1), Midnight Warrior (20/1), Fillydelphia (28/1)

Verdict

Handicap debutante STAR GLITTER is obviously one to note here given the form he showed in Ireland with his stable being very good at improving this sort and the mark doesn’t look too onerous. Up Ten Down Two is respected on his AW form with his yard in good form along with Monaco Rose who could be suited by this increased trip. At a bigger price the seemingly now well handicapped Lady Clitico is one to watch in the market.
