- At The Races Supporting Mental Health Foundation Handicap (Class 5)
- 1m 31y, Good (Good to Firm in places in the last 3f)
- 13 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Showed some potential in the autumn in trio of outings over 7f, returns with cheekpieces added, up in trip for handicap debut.
Successful over 7f at Brighton (good to soft) on his final start at two-years-old, shaped nicely on reappearance at Kempton and luckless Pontefract run since likely best forgotten. Retains potential.
Seven-race maiden, letting backers down on more than one occasion. Did shape well on turf bow at Leicester (7f, heavy) last month. Blinkers added and up in trip, capable of winning soon.
Yet to score in ten starts (five on turf) but often in the mix and should get there soon. Visor added today and on a good mark to mount a challenge.
Placed in novice auction at Kempton (1m, AW) in November. Could have more to offer if fully wound up now reverting to handicaps on return.
Six runs for Charlie Hills last year failed to see him making any progress. Has joined a new handler over the winter and one to monitor in betting / runs for now.
Debut here over 6f (good) last June was packed with promise but didn't repeat in two further outings. Bit keen on recent reappearance at Brighton (7f, good to soft), gets a hood now in bid to settle down.
AW winner over 6f at Wolverhampton on debut in February, competitive last month at Beverley (7½f, good to soft) from this mark on handicap debut. Open to further progress.
Ten-race maiden, mostly been a struggle in handicaps so far though did go close last summer over 6f at Yarmouth. Has benefit of recent AW spin for fitness.
Filly is lightly-raced and shaped nicely on her return over 7f at Kempton last time, goes up in distance for switch to turf and promising run not discounted.
Lightly-raced maiden, finished down the field in C&D handicap debut last time out. That was his seasonal bow, so should at least be fitter for the outing. Must improve.
Poet's Voice filly was easily fended off in all three maidens she contested last summer, returns to action here and handed a workable handicap mark potentially.
Delegator filly who is an 12-race maiden and now rated a stone lower than when first allocated a handicap mark in September 2017. Very poor last time on the AW at Kempton.
