Stepped up markedly on debut effort when wining a novice contest over this trip at Southwell last time out. Has to prove he's effective on this surface however.

Keen when finishing last of eight over 1m at Goodwood (good) on his racecourse debut in August. Gelded since but probably best watched at present.

Doing his best work late on when finishing a highly creditable fourth over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton on debut earlier this month. This looks a tougher contest however.

Had a subsequent winner back in third when finishing runner-up on heavy ground at Salisbury over this trip on debut in October. Gelded since and interesting to see how he fares today.

Plenty to like about his two efforts over 1m2f here so far. Beaten 4L into third last time out and represents a stable in good form (2/4) dropping in trip today.

Betting

Forecast

Ghost Serge (6/4), Carouse (3/1), Sociologist (6/1), Bobby K (7/1), Mandalayan (8/1), Possibly So (14/1), Dark Crocodile (20/1), Atomic Jack (25/1), Given Name (33/1), Astrobreeze (100/1)

Verdict

GHOST SERGE finished a well held fourth at Kempton on his seasonal debut but he can take this opening contest on his second try at 1m. The selections first attempt at this trip came in Listed company and this looks a much weaker event and he can improve on his trainer's 33% (5/15) strike-rate in recent weeks. Of his rivals today Carouse has won his last two starts and returns to handicap company for the first time since August while Sociologist can claim third dropping in trip having run over 1m2f twice previously.
