59-10OR: 77
3/1

In a different league to these rivals once upon time, but has dropped 20lb in the weights since winning off a mark of 97 at Ascot (6f) in August 2016. Handles the AW well enough, but better known as a sprinter.

5/1

Knows how to win races (three time winner in 2017), and did so in this grade over C&D on Boxing Day when proving a head too strong for Steal The Scene. Sneaks in here despite a 2lb higher mark, and is 2 from 2 at this track.

Has re-found some positive form, and arrives seeking a hat-trick following a C&D success coupled with his 1m Lingfield gains from early last month. 7lb higher and raised in grade, but very dangerous to dismiss given his rude health.

A 13 time winner in 88 starts, including most latterly over this trip at Kempton last month (beat Interlink by 1¼L). 4lb higher in a stronger contest, but no issues with track or trip.

Flag-bearer for this trainer this term, and a fine advert for striking when the iron is hottest. Whilst the winning run has come to an end, he's had a short break, and is just 5lb above his last winning mark. 7f trip perfect.

Off the track since late July until appearing at Kempton last month, when not surprisingly posting no show in a 7f handicap. Dropped 4lb, and whilst you wouldn't ever be confident, he is at least largely unexposed on synthetics.

Hasn't won since May, but has fallen in the weights as a result. Competed well off higher marks at this track last winter (runner up to Gabrial The Thug in the opener on this card in 2017), so a return to form isn't a forlorn hope.

Arguably strongest over 1m (three time winner), but did register a shock C&D success in October when beating Spinnaka by ½L. Just 2lb higher here, and made the frame off this mark latest.

10/1

Completed a rapid fire hat-trick when winning over 7f at Lingfield in February 2016, but the handicapper was in charge immediately thereafter, and he's struggled to pick up the threads now headed in a downward spiral. Holds a chance, but that's all.

His Wolverhampton statistics since April 2017 are very easy on the eye (3,2,1,1) and thankfully for connections he never wins too easily so avoids the wrath of the assessor. Up in grade, but still on a fair mark, so very much a horse to consider.

Betting

Forecast

Kadrizzi (3/1), Dark Alliance (9/2), Ebbisham (9/2), Right Action (5/1), Spare Parts (9/1), Clement (10/1), Baltic Prince (12/1), Lucky Lodge (14/1), Athassel (16/1), Sayesse (40/1)

Verdict

A decent 7f handicap which features a number of largely in-form horses. Lucky Lodge has come out in front of the others on his last two visits to Dunstall Park, yet still races from a competitive mark, and shouldn't be dismissed readily purely because he's stepping up slightly in grade. Spare Parts needs no introduction, but he does require a career best effort in order to score, whilst Dark Alliance arrives on a hat-trick mission in similarly rude health. However, if you choose to look beyond the obvious, there are also a number of others to consider, including the Dave Evans trained Athassel, and the Richard Fahey trained RIGHT ACTION. The selection just squeezes into this contest off a mark of 77 (0-75), but this has doubtless been the aim for a number of weeks, with Sebastian Woods once more in the saddle seeking to maintain an unbeaten C&D record (horse is 2 from 2 at the track).
