Ran well on seasonal reappearance when finishing runner-up over 1m at Haydock (good-to-firm). Well held in the Royal Hunt Cup here and interesting if repeating that Haydock effort.

Successful over 1m at Salisbury (good-to-soft) in June but well beaten twice since including in a valuable contest over an extended 1m at Galway (yielding) last week. Races off a mark 3lb higher than for that Salisbury victory today.

Best effort in four starts this season came when winning over an extended 7f at Chester (good-to-soft) last time out. Drop in grade appeared to help on that occasion and she has to defy a 3lb penalty in this contest.

Fell over hurdles in June and held in two subsequent starts on the Flat. Most recent came when 3L sixth of seven over 1m2f at Yarmouth (good) last month and this drop in trip is likely to suit.

Three time winner in France but beat just one rival home over 6f on his debut for this yard at Chelmsford last month. Races off a 3lb lower mark and wears cheekpieces for the first time here.

In good form last year winning three times over around this trip. Disappointing in three starts this term but now back down to his last winning mark when successful at Haydock (good) over 1m last October.

Registered a double over 1m at Ayr in the spring and ran well when 1L third over the same C&D on his penultimate outing. Well held over 7f here last time and interesting to see how he fares here.

Forecast

Brigliadoro (9/2), Breakable (5/1), Nicholas T (6/1), Knight Owl (6/1), Early Morning (13/2), Manson (7/1), Basil Berry (15/2), Raising Sand (10/1), Examiner (10/1), Medburn Dream (16/1), Highland Colori (16/1), Leader Writer (20/1)

Verdict

BREAKABLE returned to form when winning over an extended 7f last weekend and she can defy a 3lb penalty by taking this competitive 1m handicap contest. The selection was winning for the first time this season on that occasion and is taken to see of her rivals here with Raising Sand who is back down to his last winning mark following some disappointing performances. Brigliadoro who finished runner-up on soft ground at Newbury in May can take third here.
