11/4

No problems with trip or ground and bumped into an improving sort at Chepstow last time. This looks easier and with a repeat of that, she ought to be up to taking a hand in the finish.

Made an immediate impact once stepping into handicaps, ploughing through the Warwick mud to score there last time, 5lb rise for that fair, and with no ground issues and the promise of more to come, has to be taken seriously.

Has ground to make up with Samson's Reach on their running last time but a 5lb turnaround in the weights helps. May want a bit further than this but should improve again and looks one of the more likely ones.

Bit better last time when given a hood and tongue-tie, finishing well-beaten third. Goes into handicaps today and this step up in trip should help on breeding, but still a little more needed.

Well-built gelding that's not made much of an impression so far, but gets a hood for the first time here and goes into handicaps, which offers him more of a chance. One to keep an eye on, especially if there's a bit of money around for him.

Form in Ireland hasn't been much to write home about, but has joined a yard going places and they have had plenty of success first time up with others' castoffs. Hardly thrown in here, but market support would be significant.

Has looked modest in five starts so far, but at least this opening handicap mark isn't too taxing and offers him a chance to improve. He'll need to, but it was a little better last time out and he could do so.

Would look a good thing if able to reproduce his second to Terry The Fish here last May (well backed) but a big disappointment on first run for this yard when pulled up in December. Ground asks another question and a bit to prove now.

Lightly raced for one his age, this being just his fifth start, and he showed much more when a staying-on third at Hereford last time out. Should build on that and neither trip nor ground should pose a problem. One to keep an eye on in the market.

Going nowhere fast at present and form already becoming progressively worse. Hard to make much of a case for and others readily preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Lerichi Belle (11/4), Calipso Collonges (3/1), Sackett (6/1), Samson's Reach (13/2), Tanacando (8/1), Ring Minella (14/1), Bloody Nose (14/1), Get Wishing (16/1), Arthur's Reuben (25/1), Malpreedy (66/1)

Verdict

A lot of these like to be held up for a run and the possibility of a false pace can't be ruled out. The likes of Ring Minella, Calipso Collonges and Bloody Nose all need a look in the market, but SAMSON'S REACH was quietly impressive when winning last time out and the handicapper has not been overly harsh. He can win again. Lerichi Belle should be thereabouts at the finish and is one of those that might benefit if this is falsely run. Sackett would be very interesting on his best form but a poor run last time out lessens confidence a bit.
