Six time winner and beaten just 1L when finishing runner-up over 7f here last month. Fair effort despite a poor finishing position subsequently and remains of interest.

Running well without winning here this winter including when runner-up over 6f last time out. Return to 7f unlikely to inconvenience too much and has a good draw today.

Broke his maiden over C&D in December but held off this 4lb higher mark since and likely to need to improve if he's to take this contest.

Victorious on handicap debut over 1m here in December. Raised 3lb for that success but remains open to improvement and is one to note as he bids to follow up.

Betting

Forecast

Pari Passu (3/1), Bien Chase (4/1), Storm Ryker (9/2), Fashaar (5/1), Mokhalad (8/1), Arbourfield (10/1), Zeeyalater (10/1), Dandys Gold (12/1), Maysonette (20/1), Willwams (40/1), Jose Echegaray (66/1)

Verdict

FASHAAR was a winner on his debut for this yard last time out and he can follow in this competitive handicap and maintain his 100% record in handicap company in the process. The selection had put in some respectable efforts in maiden company prior to that victory and is capable of following up today with another last time out winner Pari Passu taken to finish second following a 7lb rise in the weights. Zeeyalater has placed off this mark in recent starts and can do so again by finishing third.
